A promotional slideshow for The Grange Bar & Restaurant

I have a very good and long-standing working relationship with The Grange Bar & Restaurant in Wallington, Surrey.

They are a venue that I have enjoyed working with on numerous weddings over the years.

Many of you who are my regular followers will have as a result seen many photos from the resultant weddings.

Anyone who knows Beddington Park will know what I mean when I say that it is a very picturesque park in many places, especially the surrounding area where the Grange is situated.

It has provided me with many great photographic opportunities for those weddings I’ve captured, and it still inspires me to this day with it’s versatility and depth.

I thought that I would put together a small promotional video slideshow to showcase some of those images over the years, and also help the venue inspire it’s next generation of wedding couples to have a look at what The Grange can offer them as the potential home for their special day…

A retrospective look back at our 2015 weddings

This is a retrospective look back at some of our favourite shots and moments from our 2015 weddings.

2015 was another cracking year, and as always it’s both an honour and a pleasure to be involved with all our couples’ weddings.

Please enjoy the brief two minute slideshow which showcases a small selection of images from during the course of the year.

I wanted to try and keep the slideshow to just 2 minutes rather than make it a lengthy view – which meant that it was incredibly tough to shortlist the images to a smaller quota.

I could have so easily shared many other images, but I didn’t want to bore you all! 😉


Sarah & Warren’s Christmas Wedding at Woodlands Park Hotel, Cobham

Seeing as Christmas is now almost upon us again – I thought that to get into the spirit and pop up a post of Sarah & Warren’s wedding from last Christmas.

Sarah and Warren tied the knot at St Dunstan’s Church in Cheam, then held their reception at Woodlands Park Hotel in Cobham, Surrey.

Winter and festive weddings seem to be becoming more popular in recent years.

So if you’re considering having a Christmas time wedding, why not have a watch of the video slideshow here below to get a feel and some ideas?

Merry Christmas to you all – and good luck to all the brides and grooms out there who are getting married in 2016!


Commercial Shoot for the Abbeyfield Society in Sutton, Surrey

This was a rather fun and endearing commercial shoot.

It was for the Abbeyfield Society who are a charity that help the elderly, and run over 500 residential homes over the country.

I was commissioned to photograph the Abbeyfield’s newly appointed Chief Executive, Natasha Singarayer, swap her role for a day to instead go and cook a meal for all the residents at one of their homes in Sutton, Surrey.

Ironically, the particular home that the shoot took place at, unbeknown to me at the time, had once upon a time been the home of one of my grand parents many years ago! Spooky!

The point of the shoot was to capture images of Natasha undertaking her role in the kitchen preparing the meal for the residents, and then also interacting with the residents before and during the meal itself.

The point of the exercise was that Natasha wanted to experience first hand, what their staff do, and also get a feeling for the homes and how certain things work and or could possibly be improved.

It was a really lovely job to be involved with – watching Natasha interact with both the staff and residents, and for me too, to also meet some of the elderly residents.

One thing for sure, it certainly opened my eyes to what the staff at The Abbeyfield Society, and many other residential homes across the UK offer and provide to the elderly.

Here’s some of the photos from the day here below…
