Embracing the cloudy and stereotypical British summertime weather, we love how Ross has captured Carl and Shaun’s huge personalities and great senses of humour, set against the rather epic Brandy Hole riverside.

The couple’s original wedding photos (by a different photographer) were very much in the reportage style and they asked Ross to deliberately make these ones a little more posed to highlight the tailoring of their suits and the stunning backdrop of the River Crouch. We think he’s done a great job.
