Noah’s family home Bar Mitzvah fell on the hottest day of the year! A wonderful occasion spread over two beautiful days in sunny North London with a zoom audience and then with a staggered “social distancing aware” celebration.

I have enjoyed photographing many small weddings over the years, and by small I suppose I mean under twenty wedding guests. On one occasion I photographed a wedding where four people were present, including me, and an extra… Read More
