I love to travel and it’s always such a buzz (and a huge honour) to be asked to get on a plane to photograph a wedding and having shot one in Stockholm only a month before I was feeling very lucky to find myself in Mallorca for this celebration. I’m so grateful to James and Laura for asking me to take these pictures for them, watching good friends and family come together to celebrate with them was such a treat and something I’ll never forget.

Cap Rocat is a place like no other.  Towering walls and giant slices of shade, and a myriad of sun baked stone pathways that all seem to lead to some crazy blue glimpse of the sea. And these guys added just the right amount of beautiful, personal styling to set it off. This is a small selection of images from the day, from those quiet morning moments before the rooftop ceremony, gin-fuelled flamenco reception, dinner and speeches and our trip down to the water’s edge as the sun disappeared (and everyone went down a neon lit tunnel for a rave in a cave).

This place used to be a military fortress, designed to keep enemies out. I can’t really think of a better way to exorcise its more serious historical vibes than than to fill it with friends and dancing and love.

Emma + Ben, a Swede and a kiwi living in London – by way of the US, Zimbabwe (and various other far flung spots) – gathered their beautiful worldwide sprawl of friends and family together for their wedding in a garden on the island of Djurgården in Stockholm. Relaxed, laid-back, all about the fun and celebration, they wanted a day that reflected them both and it was exactly that!
We’d hit it off from Emma’s very first email and I’m so grateful to these two for asking me to be their photographer, for inviting me in to document this beautiful day, for their kindness and brilliantly dry sense of humour, and for showing me a beautiful part of the world along the way!  Rosendals Trädgård had stolen Emma’s heart years earlier, and within five minutes of being there I’d fallen for it too. I happen to have a big softspot for greenhouses, so this place was a bit of a dream for me and the whole day was an amazing experience… the bright sunlit ceremony, led by Emma’s brother, laughter and drinks in the apple orchard, incredible plates of food set out in the greenhouses, mostly grown in the gardens around us, and lots of sweet, increasingly hilarious speeches scattered throughout the evening (it’s a Swedish tradition that anyone can make a toast… I lost count!).
It never really goes dark in Stockholm in June, and I loved watching the skies slowly creep towards a dusky pink, just touching into near-darkness before brightening again, as everyone danced in disco light colours under glass, all hugs and smiles… and so much love.
