Westcliff Wedding {Cherry & Scott}

October 18, 2012

Cherry came to me as a referral from one of my previous lovely brides, Lauren, who got married to Ross in May last year. Lauren was one of Cherry’s bridesmaids, and Ross was on official puppy-wrangling duty (more on that later). It’s always great to see my past couples again at weddings!

Cherry & Scott’s Westcliff wedding was all style and elegance, and I have to say that their reception decor was some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. Each table was given a colour, and then filled with masses of flowers in that colour, along with matching menus, favours and “advice to the couple” cards! It was breathtaking, especially once all the candles were lit. I must have photographed every flower at least twice.

Cherry and Scott are such a lovely couple: sweet, fun, and up for anything. They had their puppy brought in for some photos (hence the dog-wrangler!), they had a massive bunch of stunning balloons, and they climbed over rooftops for the perfect shot. What more could a photographer ask?

Enjoy the photos!

Rickety Barn Wedding, Cambridgeshire {Penny & Ben}

October 10, 2012

Penny and Ben were married the Saturday before I left for South Africa, and what a gorgeous wedding it turned out to be! The weather was perfect for their outdoor ceremony in a forest, there were red balloons all over the place (balloons totally gladden my heart), the guests were treated to a tea party before the ceremony, and the whole day was filled with giant smiles, laughter, and tears of joy from everyone. There were so many little details that, as usual, I went somewhat overboard, but it did make everything that little extra bit special.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Raven Princess {Southside House, Wimbledon}

October 8, 2012

I’ve been doing quite a few styled shoots lately, and they’ve got me really excited. Mostly because they’re different to weddings, while still having the same prettiness (which, apparently, I crave) to work with.  A styled shoot is so much more planned and less spontaneous than a wedding day, but at the same time you can still spot something and go, “I have a clever idea..what if we tried THIS?” And there’ll be time to do it, and willing participants, because a styled shoot is all about getting creative and creating a “wow” image, which often there isn’t time for, or interest in, on a wedding day. My favourite moment at this shoot was scouting locations with fellow Photographer Hugh Miller, and seeing a child-sized doorway, and knowing exactly what I wanted Helena to do in it! The words “broken-down doll” were used a lot, I recall.

I also loved that Sabrina and Charlotte created so many different looks: some bridal, some not at all. It was so much fun, and a great change, to work with a look that wasn’t supposed to be “pretty”, so I could get more edgy, angular expressions and poses from Helena. She looks so completely different in the beauty shots as opposed to the darker, raven-inspired shots, and it was fascinating to work with those looks to create a different style of photo to match.

South Woodford Wedding {Clare & Ricky}

October 7, 2012

Clare found me in the most awesome way – last year, whilst Googling “grey bridesmaid dresses”, she came across an image I’d taken at a 2010 wedding. She liked it so much that she clicked over to see who the photographer was, and when she saw that I was in South Africa, but moving to London before her wedding, it seemed like fate! She and Ricky booked me immediately, and I was thrilled to have a couple who were willing to do that, despite some concerned friends and family asking if they were sure I was really coming!

Fast forward to nearly a year later, and I was most definitely present to shoot their wedding in South Woodford. I loved all the DIY decor in the church hall, and the fact that the tables were all named after various mythological fairytale types. Clare is a Brownie Brown Owl, and her Brownie pack was very much present in the ceremony, doing a line by line reading that got even me a little emotional!

Onto the pictures! And thanks to Sarah for assisting me on the day.

Savile Club Wedding {Gemma & Matt}

October 4, 2012

Gemma and Matt were married on a lovely September Saturday at St James’ Church in Clerkenwell, with the reception at the gorgeous and elegant Savile Club in Mayfair. I was second shooting for Eliza Claire Photography – thanks for having me along! The whole day was just beautiful and stylish, and since those things make me happy, I had a very lovely day indeed. :-)
