In 1981 my grandad bought me my first camera, 30 and a bit years later I am more passionate about photography than ever before.
The very first Wedding, shot on my beloved Nikkormatt (now used as a prop in My Styled shoots!) I was so excited and couldn't wait to get the rolls of film developed, so my business partner and I drove straight to the lab and waited until we have every timeless image in our hands.
I now use a canon 5D backed up with a fabulous Olympus Pen. As I always quote "it's not the equipment in which you use, it is the eyes that which you see".
I am now a fully qualified personal stylist who specialises in photographic styling.

I still love the magical moments of a wedding and working with the Bride and groom, ensuring every detail of their wonderful day is captured. Please see "once in a lifetime" for more information.
Now I love working in the corporate world too, meeting new faces and feeling the true passion when I get to style a shoot for a new brand using my creative mind and being allowed to express the true potential of all the possibilities. Whether it's the a beautiful English Coast or a Californian beach, a stunning hotel in London Town or a elegant riad in Marrakech, I'll deliver you a set of images that will capture the essence of your brand.
I fell in love with Italy when I was 21 – my first trip abroad over 30 years ago and I have had a life long love affair with Italy ever since. I left then came back and like your first love, you can’t quite forget Italy. Now I’m lucky enough to live here permanently after moving here 18 years ago to the most amazing region of Calabria. I have an Italian husband and a wonderful son who was born here. I am fluent in Italian and my family and I live a typical Calabrese lifestyle. Friends who visit us can’t help but fall in love with this captivating land. I am having the time of my life living out my dream in a beautiful place, following my passion arranging stunning weddings, parties and events, right here in beautiful Southern Italy .
If you decide this to is the place for you to say “I do” I will deal with everything for you from the perfect venue right down to the finer details of the paperwork and making arrangements for all your guests. Leaving you just to enjoy every magical moment!
Eventi is a family run business based in Calabria the very south of Italy and in some respects relatively undiscovered by mass tourism. The region rich in culture,history, and natural beauty. Home to majestic mountains and a beautiful coastline, medieval hilltop villages, castles, mystery and folklore.
The small pockets of British tourists who have discovered our magical region come back again and again, many go on to invest in properties here – but all secretly hope that it will remain untouched by mass tourism and retain its rustic Italian charm! It really is Italy’s best kept secret .
At Eventi we believe that we are unique in that we only organise our weddings in Calabria itself. We know this area so well and we have a long
list of reliable contacts with whom we have excellent relationships and who we are confident will deliver. We will never compromise our standards by operating in an area which is unfamiliar territory to us and we aim to take care of only a handful of events a year so that you will have the individual attention which is so important when arranging your special day. Furthermore what makes us truly unique at Eventi is that we are true mix of English and Southern Italian backgrounds.
