Published Pictures

It is always nice to see one’s work in print, especially when they are used by three newspapers all on the same day!

Kevin and Angie’s Wedding

Kevin and Angie tied the knot in the gorgeous setting of the Royal Pavilion in Brighton – the scene of their first date, and afterwards at the Revolution Bar in Brighton’s busy West Street – a few yards from the seafront.

The ceremony was held in the Pavilion’s Red Room, and photos were then taken in the Music Room.

Linda and I were commissioned to capture the day. Here’s a few photographs taken by us of Kevin and Angie’s day.
