Based in the North East ,England, I capture weddings all across the UK, and around Europe and the World .
I’m so very passionate about what I do, I find inspiration all around me and love to use any available light to by advantage and use additional light for the more creative image. I have had the pleasure of photographing in Astana on a few occasions, the atmosphere of Astana lends itself to stylish wedding photography.
I take pleasure in playing an integral role in two people joining in marriage but I’m a firm believer in the fact that a wedding is so much more than exchanging words and work to capture every emotion felt and each special moment, translating the true joy of the day through contemporary imagery.
Where ever you are in the world, I’d love to be part of it.. I look forward to hear from you.
Nur-Sultan (Kazakh pronunciation: [nʊɾ sʊltɑn], Cyrillic: Нұр-Сұлтан (Nur-Sultan); see also other names) is the capital city of Kazakhstan. Known between 1998 and 2019 as Astana (Kazakh pronunciation: [ɑstɑnɑ], Cyrillic: Астана) and before that Akmola. On 23 March 2019, following a unanimous vote in Kazakhstan’s parliament, the city was renamed Nur-Sultan, after former Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev.
The city lies on the banks of the Ishim River in the north-central part of Kazakhstan, within the Akmola Region, though administered as a city with special status separately from the rest of the region. A 2020 official estimate reported a population of 1,136,008 within the city limits, making it the second-largest city in the country, after Almaty, the previous capital, between 1991 and 1997. Akmola became the capital of Kazakhstan in 1997, since then it has grown and developed economically into one of the most modern cities in Central Asia.
Modern Nur-Sultan is a planned city, following the process of other planned capitals. After it became the capital of Kazakhstan, the city dramatically changed its shape. The city’s master-plan was designed by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa. As the seat of the government of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan is the site of the Parliament House, the Supreme Court, the Ak Orda Presidential Palace and numerous government departments and agencies. It is home to a range of futuristic buildings, including many skyscrapers.
