Mayenne France destination wedding | Julie + Tom part deux

Regular readers of my blog will probably remember I had the pleasure of photographing Julie & Tom's wedding in islington last September. So what are they doing getting married again in France? The idea was to have a very relaxed summertime celebration with warmer weather, and so that people who weren't able to come to their London wedding could attend.

Clock Barn Hall wedding photography Godalming | Yveta + Adam

A hot one! That's probably how best to describe Yveta and Adam's Clock Barn Hall wedding - temperatures reached almost 30C in the afternoon as the guests enjoyed the sunshine on the lawn at Clock Barn Hall near Godalming. I started the day with Yveta and her bridesmaids for bridal preparations at the Hog's Back Hotel Farnham...

Gunnersbury Park Ealing engagement shoot | Natasha & Terry

So what's an engagement shoot all about then? Basically it's a short portrait photo session with a couple who are getting married. A pre-wedding shoot gives a couple a chance to relax in front of the camera. From the photographer's point of view it's a great opportunity for me to get to know them as well.

Southwark wedding – Two Benjamins

Very often, the small-scale low-key weddings are some of the nicest - and that was certainly the case when these two grooms (both called Benjamin!) got married at Southwark Register Office. Both Benjamins are from France, and they decided to get married before moving back there. Two good friends stood by them as witnesses, and a simple but moving ceremony was conducted by the Southwark registrars. After the wedding itself, we did some simple photos in the garden, and then I left them to celebrate.

Gildings Barn Surrey Winter Wedding

Most weddings tend to happen in spring and summer - obviously the weather has a lot to do with that. Longer days and warmer temperatures make it easier to have events outdoors and there are fewer worries about travel. But a winter wedding has a charm of its own, especially when it involves a candlelit church ceremony, as Emma and Ollie's did. And a gorgeous and happy couple, of course!

Winter portrait shoot at Sheepleas

You might not think of winter as being a good time for a portrait session - but actually as long as it's not pouring with rain it can be as good a time as any! Winter days tend to be overcast which provides nice soft even light. This is more flattering and easier to work with than the strong shadows of a very bright sunny day. And no squinting from the bright light either!

Islington Town Hall Wedding | Julie and Tom

This wedding was a special pleasure to photograph, as my nephew Tom married the lovely Julie at Islington Town Hall. Family and friends gathered including a good contingent of Julie's relations from Winnipeg, Canada. The weather decided to be a bit "British", but apart from some occasional drizzle it stayed mostly dry, for which we were all thankful!

Kings Chapel Amersham wedding photos | Helen and Harj

Kings Chapel Amersham wedding photos | Helen and Harj

Helen and Harj’s wedding took place at a new venue for me – the King’s Chapel in Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire.  Set in its own grounds behind the King’s Arms Hotel, it’s a converted 18th century chapel. It makes a great wedding venue as it’s spacious and airy inside with plenty of daylight and has a terrace with a shady garden behind the building.

The English Lake District is one of my favourite places, so I was delighted to be asked to photograph Kinga and Shiral's wedding at the Lodore Falls Hotel in Borrowdale. The hotel is right next to the famous waterfall that cascades down the hillside and out into Derwent Water.

When editor Danielle Harvey of Your Surrey Wedding magazine contacted me to ask me to submit some images for possible use in the magazine I was happy to oblige. I didn't think much more about it, but was happily surprised when Danielle got in touch and said that she had selected one of my images for the front cover of the magazine's 60th issue!
