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.

Careena and Adrian were married in Hong Kong but wanted to have a wedding photo shoot amid the glories of the English countryside - so that's what we did!

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...

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!

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.

Chelsea Registry office wedding | Stephanie & Raj

Chelsea Registry office wedding

Take a dash of London style, add a splash of Anglo-Indian heritage and then mix in some French joie de vivre, and you have the recipe for Stephanie and Raj’s wedding!

Their wedding was a relaxed and intimate affair with family and close friends in attendance. Stephanie’s family and friends had travelled from France and Raj’s from the UK and from India, so it was quite an eclectic gathering. Kudos to Stephanie’s parents for making an excellent speech in English! (more…)

Brocket Hall wedding photography | Katy & Dean

Great people, a great venue, and... typical English weather - well two out of three isn't bad! It didn't actually rain on Katy & Dean's wedding day, but it was that classic English mix of overcast skies with a hint of sunshine here and there. The couple would probably prefer wall-to-wall sunshine of course, but from a photographer's point of view a softer day is not necessarily a bad thing. It means people don't get hot and sticky, and aren't dazzled by the sun.
