Wormstall House Wedding {Rachel & Nick}

May 31, 2014

London Wedding Photographers

 

Rachel and Nick’s wedding day was supposed to be – according to the weather reports – chucking it down all day, but luckily no one believes in those reports, so aside from an odd hour or two during the afternoon, the sun shone valiantly throughout the day! And the rain and dampened lawns certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits, least of all Rachel and Nick’s! I love it when a couple is so excited to be getting married, that nothing else matters.

The reception was held at the gorgeous Wormstall House near Newbury, which is filled with stuffed animals and birds and books and fun knick-knacks, and is generally just a photographer’s paradise!

My second shooter for the day was my fab friend Heline Bekker.

Clerkenwell, London Wedding at the Museum of the Order of St John {Mandy & James}

Remember Mandy and James from their fun engagement session? Well, they got married this month! Their ceremony was at the gorgeous Museum of the Order of St John in the most beautiful room, and then after gallivanting around Clerkenwell for some fun group and couple photos, we walked over to The Chiswell Street Dining Rooms, picking up wedding guest stragglers – and forward-thinking ones – who’d gone ahead to sneak in a pint or two at some of the pubs along the way! Basically, a LOT of fun was had by all; it was rather hilarious seeing guests coming out of the woodwork at every pub we passed!

The whole wedding day was incredibly fun, thanks largely to Mandy’s super awesome bridesmaids (one of whom convinced Mandy to climb into a shopping trolley, and then squeezed in, too), and the fact that M& J are great people with lots of fun friends, too! The dancing area had TWISTER, which just about made my day – unfortunately I left before it was utilised by anyone other than babies, but I hope some epic fun was had!

Mandy and James, thank you so much for inviting me to photograph your wedding! xx

London wedding at Chelsea Registry Office & Bistrotheque {Shwetha & Phillip}

April 21, 2014

London Wedding photography

 

Shwetha and Phillip were married on a chilly February day with just their closest friends and family present at the ceremony at the Chelsea Registry Office. The rain kept threatening, but every time we were about to move back inside or run back to the car the sun came out, so we managed in those brief moments to get some beautiful garden portraits done (in between allĀ  the “Oh no, it’s raining, let’s run over there and take shelter…oh, wait, it’s stopped; quick, there’s the sun! Pose!!” moments).

Later in the evening there was a big party for all their friends at the uber-cool Bistrotheque in Bethnal Green (you know it’s cooler than you are when the place doesn’t even have a name outside :-)), where there were some hilarious speeches and awesome dance moves – including what is now probably my favourite first dance song choice of all time – “You Never Can Tell” (you know, the one from the dance competition in Pulp Fiction). So good.

Florence Farm Wedding, South Africa {Anja & Mike}

March 28, 2014

bridal veil blowing in the wind

 

I’m SO excited to share this wedding with you!

When Anja told me she’d been following my work for years, and that she was a little devastated when I moved to the UK, because she’d planned on asking me to be her wedding photographer one day, I was so honoured (and more than a little intimidated!). But I’m so thankful that when “one day” arrived, and Anja and Mike were planning their wedding, that she still wanted me to photograph it for them! Obviously I wasn’t about to say no to being flown out from the UK for a gorgeous farm wedding (and being able to visit my family and friends in the process!). I’m so touched that they did that, and thrilled that they had such an exceptionally gorgeous wedding, too.

I just got back from South Africa yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to take a proper look at my photos from Anja and Mike’s wedding at Florence Farm last month! So here are four to tide them over until I get the full blog post up. :-)

Wedding at The Prince Albert pub in Camden {Shannen & Christian}

January 27, 2014

St Pancras wedding photography

“You guys are so cute!” is what I kept saying to Christian and Shannen the whole day (and probably a hundred times more just to myself, so they wouldn’t think I was creepy or obsessed). But seriously, they are! SO CUTE. Shannen didn’t stop smiling the whole day, and Chris wasn’t far behind. It was so plain to me how much in love they are, and I might have choked up a little during Chris’ awesome speech about how fantastic Shannen is. Add to that the fact that he baked the wedding cake himself (!!!!), and I think Shannen’s found herself a keeper. :-)

A bunch of really fun guests, a Jenga drinking game, some adorable kids, a great venue and delicious food made this wedding an incredible one with which to start off the year! Way to set the standard, guys!

My second shooter was my fab friend Heline Bekker.

Graffiti wedding photos Shoreditch

It’s that time again! My 2013 round-up of some of my favourite wedding photos, engagement photos, and other pictures I’ve taken this year! It’s a pretty big post… turns out I had a lot more favourites than I thought. Which, of course, is good, and I can’t complain!

Thanks to all the wonderful people in these photos who made my job really easy this year, by just turning up and being fantastic clients from the get-go! My photos wouldn’t be half as good if you didn’t look so awesome in them. :-) And I wouldn’t have had nearly as much fun as I did in 2013 if you all weren’t so damn fun to work with! So here’s to continuing friendships and hoping that my 2014 couples are just as lovely!

And some of my previous roundups:

Kent Life Wedding {Melissa & Cliff}

September 30, 2013

Kent Life Wedding-39

Last month I travelled into Kent to document the gorgeous wedding of Melissa and Cliff. Melissa is American and Cliff British, but since they live in the States they decided to have their wedding here, with a small reception for their American friends and family once they got back home. The reception was held at the beautiful Kent Life, a heritage farm and function venue, which I absolutely fell in love with! Melissa’s wedding gown was stunning, and with her bridesmaids in their mismatched cream/gold/silver dresses I couldn’t stop photographing them! Everything about this wedding was so lovely.

Special thanks to Jo from Kent Life for her amazing organisational skills and taking care of us so well!
