Hello New Website!!

Alternative Documentary Style London Wedding Photography

In July I said goodbye to 11 years worth of my work and photography history on my blog, and welcomed the brand new spanking website you see here. It has been a huge and massively sad decision to delete the old site, but I see it as a rebirth and the opportunity to start afresh.

After a major hack in June and ongoing cyber attacks targeting Wordpress, I chose to rebuild a new site using Squarespace. I think Wordpress is an amazing platform, and there are so many incredible themes and plugins to customise your site, but at the same time these themes and plugins are what makes your site vulnerable to attacks.

And while I will miss the wonderful customisation, flexibility and creativity of the Wordpress platform, as a one woman band where there is no luxury of an IT department, I have chosen to go with simplicity and a lot less stress and distraction. Yes there are a few restrictions but platform is easy to understand and the new site was incredibly easy to set up.

So bear with me while I repopulate my new blog with older work - I have chosen to go back only two years to 2014 ( it would be crazy to reblog everything that existed before) and it's taking some time to get it all up!
