Cake: Lynn's Traditions, Raleigh, NC

DJ and Videographer: Damien Maas, Durham NC

Assistant Photographer: Rebecca Ferguson, Durham, NC

The first time I ever visited Durham back in 2007, I was lucky enough to visit Duke Chapel and was totally spellbound by its beautiful gothic architecture. And so it was, when we moved to the area in late 2010, that I made it my goal to shoot a wedding there as soon as possible. Almost exactly one year to the day later, I was contacted by Jacquie and was extremely pleased when we met up and she told me wanted to go ahead and book me as the wedding photographer on her big day. Fast-forward almost a year later again and I found myself, a British wedding photographer in Durham, under a cloudless blue sky gazing up at the ornate façade counting my blessings for having the opportunity to work in such a gorgeous place of worship.

I want to thank Blanche and Sara at Duke Chapel for having everything so well organised and being so great to work with - they truly do run a very well-oiled machine over there. Thanks also to the staff at the Sarah P. Duke Gardens for looking after Rebecca and me so well during the reception. Lynn over at Lynn's Traditions baked up another gorgeous cake and Damian Maas did a truly superb job with the videography and DJing. Great job guys!

Finally, a very special thank you to Jacquie and Erik for allowing me to be a part of their special day. I wish you both every happiness in your future together.

Here are a few of my favourites from the day:
