ALL ABOUT Jon
I'm Jon: tea-lover, husband, father, photographer, writer, book-worm, teacher, cricket-watcher, Peak-District explorer. Not necessarily in that order!
I cover weddings all over the UK (and occasionally abroad) and tell the story of each day - moment by moment.
I love creating these video slideshows for my clients – they’re a fantastic way to showcase some of the highlights from the wedding day. My photography approach is very much centred around telling the story of the day, and these films really focus on the narrative.
Kerry and Martin’s day didn’t go exactly as they planned: they had wanted an outdoor ceremony, and had chosen Blackbrook House in Belper because it offered a beautiful setting for an outside wedding, but the weather had other ideas, and instead offered up one of the wettest afternoons that I can remember. Fortunately, Blackbrook House could easily accommodate the enforced change of plan, and Kerry and Martin were wed within its elegant interior.
So, dim the lights, make sure you’re sitting comfortably, and enjoy the show!
I had the pleasure of capturing one of the most beautiful summer weddings when I spent the day with Jade & Ross: the new Mr & Mrs Brooks. Come in and take a look at some fantastic memories and awesome details!
One of the most beautiful autumnal weddings, with a beautiful bride, gorgeous details, and the most unexpected visitor you could imagine….
We were off to the seaside for Sara and Benn’s Scarborough wedding at Ox Pasture Hall Hotel. There was no sand in sight, but there was a beautiful bride marrying her very dapper groom, and a pair of vintage Mustangs thrown in for good measure! Come and take a look…
Kerry & Martin’s wedding at Blackbrook House in Derbyshire was full of beautiful, carefully chosen details.
Paige and Tom met at school when they were just 15! So you might have thought that they could wait just a few more months to become husband and wife… Nope! After initially booking their wedding at Hoar Cross Hall for 2017, the pair decided that they couldn’t wait that long and brought the day forward, leaving a mere four months to plan their wedding!
The West Mill happily lent its centuries of history to Kelly and Kevin’s amazing wedding day, styled with a mix of vintage and modern within the industrial setting of such a unique venue. Kelly (and Kevin!) planned this fantastic day in just 11 weeks, and it was everything they could ever have dreamed of.
“People always say it, but it truly is the best day of your life, and looking through our photographs allowed us to relive that perfect day all over again!”
