The English Wedding Blog is my baby – sometimes I forget how long I’ve had her, and then I think back to all the amazing people I’ve met along the way – like lovely Sandy from Love In Focus whose first real wedding feature here was back in 2014!
It means a lot to me that my role is as a matchmaker – I’m here to hook you lovely lot up with the most creative, exciting, wonderful wedding suppliers I know. And so I work really hard to share local weddings, ask couples for their recommendations with every real wedding and share inspiration from the very best.
I’m here to help you find your suppliers; I’m here to help suppliers find you! And when lovely folks come back to the blog as sponsors, it means it’s working for everyone!
I’m more than thrilled to say fabulous Bristol wedding photographer Love In Focus is rejoining my little band of blog sponsors today. I’ll hand over to Sandy to tell you more…

“Hi! I’m Sandy from Love In Focus. I’ve been a professional wedding phographer shooting weddings around Bristol, Somerset and the South West since 2012 and I think I’m one of the luckiest people on earth! I love my job, not only do I get to do something I love for a living but I also get to hang out with people on the happiest day of their lives!
My style is what I like to call relaxed reportage, this means I don’t get in the way or direct too much, it’s important to me to create an honest record of your wedding day rather than shoe horning the day into some cliched idea of what your day should be. I’ve always thought the best photos happen when people don’t know they are being taken, I want to capture genuine emotions so that when you look back at my work in years to come it takes you straight back to how you felt just then.
I also like to include a few fine art portraits of you to give you something special to hang on the wall and of course make sure to capture loads of the little details that you probably spent ages deciding on but hardly had the chance to appreciate in the excitment of the day itself.
I’m not really keen on talking about myself so here is what a few people have had to say about me:
“Sandy was brilliant, from first meet, to engagement shoot and then on the day. He’s so easy to get on with, creative, quirky, knows what will make a great shot and will work hard to get it. We had a winter wedding and he had so many imaginitive suggestions for night shots, he was brilliant. His style is relaxed reportage and he captured the reception so well, as well as giving a great twist on the more staged and group shots. We Loved Sandy and have readily recommended him to other friends.”
Mrs Lisa Williams
“Sandy is a fantastic photographer and captured our day perfectly! He made the most of the rainy weather and got some amazing shots! To top it off hes a fantastic, down to earth guy that made us feel so at ease on the day!”
Mrs Lucy Payne
“We were so glad we chose Sandy from Love In Focus to photograph our wedding. In the lead up he was very friendly and approachable, and really listened to what we wanted. On the day he was brilliant; friendly and non intrusive with the guests, but also assertive enough to get the shots he wanted. We loved his creative ideas for unusual shots. We received our photos really quickly, and could not be happier with them!”
Mrs Claire Randell
“Sandy put us at ease immediately when we met him and allowed us to express what we wanted from our wedding photography. He was really helpful in suggesting ideas and showed us example work that he had produced in the past. He helped us to prepare for the feeling of being photographed by doing an engagement shoot with us. He was wonderful on our wedding day and did everything we asked, whilst remaining unobtrusive.”
