I've photographed quite a lot of weddings but this was a first - a bride in water. OK so it wasn't her wedding day and Charlotte kindly spent most of it in cold water (thank you Charlotte) but it certainly produced some lovely results. I love sailing - I spent many weekends in Weymouth harbour as a youngster wondering why my mates were playing football instead. I've since forgotten the cold damp bus trips home of course.

The Weymouth and Portland National Sailing Academy called to ask me to help with publicity for their up coming wedding fayre. So along with hair and makeup artist I set off for the Academy where they built a temporary pool for me - I'm not sure if they thought I was mad  to ask but they did a great job and a massive thanks to the staff behind the scenes.
Many thanks to Oxfam Bridal (Poole, Dorset) for a fantastic dress, and above all Claudia for letting us get involved.
