Bohemian wedding at The Roost, Dalston & Stoke Newington Town Hall {Emily & Oli}

November 17, 2014

The Roost Dalston wedding venue photos

 

I think what I loved most about this wedding was the guests. Not that Emily and Oli aren’t total rockstars, because they are (Oli literally is one; he writes songs and has a band and everything), but there’s something about seeing how thrilled a couple’s family and friends are for them, that makes me warm to that couple even more. I mean, if their loved ones are that genuinely excited to be at their wedding, they must be pretty awesome people, right? And all I saw the whole day were huge smiles, laughter and happiness, from every person there. It warmed the cockles of my already sentimental, sappy heart. :-)

Emily and Oli were married at Stoke Newington Town Hall, followed by a lunch at the nearby pub, Homa, for just their close family and friends. And then it was onto the super ridiculously cool venue The Roost, in Dalston, for the main reception. I’d been looking forward to shooting there ever since Emily and Oli booked me, and it did not disappoint! I kind of totally want to live there. Even if my legs were aching the next day from running up and down three flights of stairs all evening (but then hey, that’d be my exercise for the week!).

Oli and Emily wanted a bohemian feel to their celebrations, and pretty much everyone came dressed accordingly, which I loved! Partly because I love dress-up, and partly because it was another sign of how much everyone loves Oli and Emily, and how much fun they were prepared to have at the wedding! And the more fun people have, the more fun I have!

Thanks as always to my lovely partner-in-crime-and-silliness, Heline Bekker, for second shooting with me!

A Victorian Steampunk Wedding {Madeleine & Edward} – London Wedding Photographer

August 7, 2014

Victorian gothic wedding photo

 

Late last autumn I photographed Madeleine and Edward’s engagement session around Highgate cemetery, and I was so taken with their awesome sense of style (and Madeleine’s awesome hair!) that I knew their wedding would be something really special. The theme was steampunk-Victorian, and everyone looked so incredible that I was almost sad not to be dressed up, too (as it turned out, it was one of the hottest days of the summer so far, so I was relieved not to be in layers!). The ceremony was held at white gothic mansion Strawberry Hill House, with the reception following at the phenomenal Kew Bridge steam museum, where an amazing time was had by all!

Madeleine and Edward, thank you SO much for having me along to capture your day, and all the details and moments that made it amazing!

Thanks also to my lovely friend and second shooter, Heline Bekker!

Wormstall House Wedding {Rachel & Nick} – Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer

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.

Urban Engagement Photo Session in London {Mandy & James}

February 20, 2014

 

Quirky Engagement photos London (1)

Mandy and James are getting married in April in the Clerkenwell area, so for their engagement photos we decided to have a wander around the area, so they could show me where everything will be happening on the wedding day, and also to find some good spots for the wedding pictures. We had to postpone once because of the tube strike, but the quiet, sunny (albeit freezing) Sunday we ended up with was absolutely perfect! It was such a beautiful area to shoot in – I’ve never done a London engagement session in such peace and quiet. I can’t wait for the wedding!

Tweeds & Tiaras: A quirky, alternative take on a traditional country house wedding

February 8, 2014

Alternative wedding photographers in  London
This shoot was the brainchild of the ever-fabulous florist and stylist, Gwenda from Fearless Florals. She envisioned an alternative take on the classic English country house wedding, and with some fabulous suppliers on board we brought it together beautifully! Here’s what Gwenda had to say:

“Red, violet, lime and nectarine were chosen for our palette. I used colourful roses, carnations, gladioli and alstroemeria to create two quite different bouquet styles, one a simple domed posy, the other a stat. Feathers were an integral park of the styling throughout the shoot, including the stunning stationery created by Kate (complete with a line drawn image of the facade of the venue) and the exceptional cakes and sweet treats by Renza and the mouth-watering fudge by Sioban.

I’m so proud and happy to share this shoot with you! My lovely friend Gwenda (whose flowers and decor you’ll have seen on my blog many times) had the brilliant idea of organising a South African themed wedding shoot, using only South African wedding suppliers who now live in the UK, to create a little piece of “home” wedding loveliness! She says it better than I can, so over to her!

Skinner’s Hall, London Wedding {Annmarie & Adam}

September 19, 2013

 

Annmarie-Adam-Wedding-Highgate-63

Annmarie and Adam were married last month in Highgate (where the total highlight of my wedding life was Annmarie and her bridesmaids arriving in rickshaws – you know, the London ones with a bicycle on the front, pedalled by men with legs of steel), and we then boarded two red London buses which took us to the lovely Skinner’s Hall for the reception. I had so much fun at their wedding, from singing along to N’Sync while the girls got ready, to singing along to Annmarie’s Scottish relatives’ renditions of, well, a verse and chorus of every song they could think of after dinner! Apparently there was a lot of singing, which is just the way I like it. :-)

There was also some of the most fun dancing ever. Thanks, Adam and Annmarie, for asking me to shoot your wedding day!
