When Karen Weds Michael – The Derbyshire Sequel.

I was most excited when Karen and Michael agreed to have me as their photographer for their UK blessing in October 2016. For those who are new to this story, I already had the honour of covering their Australian wedding in July ’16. So to do it again in the UK was beyond exciting, both […]
