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.

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!

Camden Pub Wedding {Isla & Lauren}

August 11, 2013

Lauren and Isla were married (although it’s still called a civil ceremony, but whatever, it’s married to me!) on yet another of the boiling hot days London has been rejoicing (read: melting) in this summer! They held the ceremony at Marylebone Town Hall, and then we trundled off in a big red London bus to a gorgeous little pub in Camden, called The Prince Albert. Lauren and Isla wanted a very chilled, relaxed party for their reception, and they achieved it beautifully! I was also a little bit overexcited about their decor and details – the book geek in me LOVED their love-themed Penguin book cover table names, the word nerd bit of me adored their scrabble wedding cake and place-names, and the ridiculously awesome invitations made me very happy indeed (note: there are Virginia Woolf in-jokes). Also, Lauren had Harry Potter shoes. Achievement unlocked, and Wedding Managed.

Guildford Wedding at Home {Tara & Michael}

August 2, 2013

About a year ago, I participated in an auction for Oxfam on ebay, where I donated my wedding photography services to the highest bidder. It’s been a long time, but Tara and Michael’s wedding day finally came around! They had a traditional church ceremony at St Mary’s in Guildford, followed by the loveliest afternoon reception in Tara’s parents’ backyard. The hot weather cooled down just for them, and everyone chilled out in the garden, drinking champagne and homemade cordials. One of my favourite parts was that, because each table was served a joint of lamb, a la Sunday Roast, one person per table was designated Official Meat Carver – and they were given a chef’s hat and apron to prove it! Awesome.
