I'm proud to say there's a large network of local businesses who trust me enough to promote my services to their clients. If you use any of the following businesses they will give you a voucher for big savings on either my wedding or family portrait photography.

Wedding photography
If you use any of the following businesses they'll give you a voucher that entitles you to a free engagement photography session and print from me. This is a fabulous way to see if you like working with me before deciding to choose me (or not - no pressure, or hard feelings!) as your wedding photographer.

Style me Bridal
Nicola and Natalie at Style me bridal are based in the stunning Octavia View in Wisbech. Their bridal store has a wonderful range of gowns and accessories and their website has a style guide to help you choose the perfect wedding dress.

Here's how Nic and Nat describe their business:
"Our service is ‘one of a kind’ just like each of our beautiful brides…we are the founders of ‘dream dress styling’, a personal Gok Wan approach to wedding dress shopping! Our collection is unique in that each of our gowns comes complete with a choice of styling options so designs can be mixed & matched across the range. This offers more choice and means that brides can add an element of their own personality into the finished gown.
As professional stylists we work differently to the shops in that our customers are invited to discover their ‘inner bride’. We offer style therapy and mood boards alongside our gowns. This ensures the finished gown best reflects the wedding themes, the brides proportions and their personal likes and dislikes. We are passionate about our craft and we take the guess work out of shopping. Let’s be honest, for most people their wedding gown is the most expensive item they will ever going to wear, so would you want to leave that to chance or to a sales assistant in a store!"
Their business is booming, they both know their stuff and you'll be in very experienced, friendly hands.

Truly Scrumptious Wedding and Event Planning
Stephanie Hines, owner of Truly Scrumptious, is the 'wedding whisperer' of Peterborough and beyond. Not only is she in high demand for her calm, meticulously organised and well connected wedding planning experience, she also works tirelessly for local charities. This year she's putting on the Black Tie Ball on 29th November in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust. I'm auctioning off three family portrait sessions at the ball and I'd encourage anyone to go. I had a wonderful time at last year's event.

A Formal Affair
The quality of men's formal suit hire is far superior at A Formal Affair compared with what you'll find on the high street. Keith Lilley, the owner, will take fantastic care of you. 'Care' is the watch-word. He ensures everything is perfect because he cares so much about offering his clients the best possible service - and always with a big beaming smile.

Family portraits
If you were watching family fortunes, what would be the top answer for this question:
"What's the first thing someone would grab when leaving a burning building?"
Family photographs, right?
How dare you say Smartphone!!!
But seriously, family portraits are priceless and irreplaceable (unlike a Smartphone - although it is a pain to re-programme all your contacts!)

Use any of these businesses and you'll get a voucher entitling you to a free family portrait session and free print from me:

Woodford and Co Estate Agents
This family run estate agent is based in Oundle and deal in some of the finest homes in north Northamptonshire and the surrounding areas. The team there have always been nothing but warm and welcoming to me - although I do try to bring cake when I visit, so maybe that's it! But in all seriousness they were great with me even when I first approached them and they didn't know me from a bar of soap.

Charles Bright Jewellers
Since the 1920s, Charles Bright has supplied Peterborough and the surrounding area a fine selection of high quality and distinctive jewellery and Wedding Bands. As 'The World's Most Helpful Photographer' I like to associate myself with businesses that conduct themselves in the best possible way and all Charles Bright diamonds are sourced in accordance with the stipulations of 'the Kimberley Process', guaranteeing that they are "Conflict Free".
With so many 'chain' businesses dominating our town centres it's nice to see an independent jeweller that has thrived in Peterborough for so many years.

Amblewood Dog Kennels
When I set up my alliance with Amblewood dog kennels it was partly because they looked like they took great care of their 'guests', but partly because I knew I'd get a lot of calls from people wanting their dogs photographed - and who doesn't love rampaging around with dogs! I'm now even photographing Jamie and Cory Greenaway's wedding - the couple who look after the kennels. I hope I'm able to Jack Russell up some great photos for them.... (sorry!)

Tuya Hairdressers
Tuya is a hairdressing sorceress. I've seen her create designs that I've never seen anywhere else. She looks after the hair of my beautiful wife Asliza, so she must be good. After all, Asliza isn't easily pleased - she looked long and hard before finding the perfect husband...

Natasha Morgan - Foreign Language Specialist
My mum was a French teacher and I've always loved to travel. To me travelling and the memories it creates is a testament to a life well lived. Looking back and reminiscing about all the places you've been and the experiences you've had is a heart-warming feeling. If you feel the same way then get yourself some language lessons from the lovely Natasha and you'll get a family portrait from me into the bargain. Memories ahoy!

InVogue Interiors
Inger Bouvet and her interior design business are the perfect complement to my family portrait business. We're both in the business of helping you make your house a home. Inger skilfully does it with expert style and design skills while I do it through creating personalised wall portraits of your family. If you're thinking of moving house I love Inger's 'Home mover's package' where she will give you advice on making small tweaks to your home to help you sell it more quickly and for more money.
