Clair and David came across my work online and we met on Skype one spring evening. David had been Clair’s Mother’s hairdresser for many years before one day she had suggested that Clair go to see him. The rest as they say is history!

It turned out from our conversations that Clair and David were real fans of documentary style photography and not too interested in posed portraits. This suited me fine as, although I’ve spent a lot of time working on my portraiture over the past few years, this is where my real passion lies. Generally for 99% of the wedding day I work in this way photographing things as they happen, unscripted, without interference or preconception.

Working in this way means that you’re not limited to just photographing the events such as the ceremony, speeches, cake cutting, the first dance etc and actually moments that happen between events can often yield much more interesting and poignant photographs.

Some of the moments I really loved capturing were when Clair was having her hair done with her sisters in the morning, Clair arriving at the church only to be delayed when her sister trod on her nieces’ foot, David waiting patiently looking at his watch, the guests congratulating David and Clair as they left the church, the Ray Charles tribute band performing and Clair’s Grandad generally being a legend on the dance floor!

Clair and David, I loved photographing you and your big day and am so pleased that you love the results. Thanks for inviting me along for the ride!

Hi Jamie, 

 Thank you so much for sending this through, we are so over the moon with our pictures, you have captured our day in the most amazing way, and we couldn’t have hoped for a more wonderful display of emotions captured for us to keep and cherish. 

It was so lovely to see you again the other night, and thank you once again for our beautiful pictures.

You are truly talented at capturing a wonderful moment.

Warmest wishes,

Clair & David x
