Croydon wedding

two photos of bride and bride and groom with autumn leaves in the background

Stephanie & James Croydon wedding last autumn is another wedding that has taken me a long time to blog.

As it is clear from the images and the beautiful foliage, this wedding took place last autumn and I am blogging it now in June!

The ceremony took place in St. Gertrude’s catholic church in South Croydon and I have to say that the priest there was the best and more relaxed priest I have ever met as a photographer. He was quite into photography himself, so we had a chat about the lenses I was using on the day and whatnot. He was also very relaxed about me taking pictures during the ceremony, which is quite unusual.Of course I was still very respectful about the ceremony and tried to be as discreet as I could and I found a hiding space from which to take photos most of the time.

Newland Hall wedding

Martin and Kate tied the knot in a ceremony at St. Christopher’s Church in Willingale followed by at reception at Newland Hall in Roxwell, in Essex. Their wedding was held quite a while ago…it was an amazing day and a beautiful wedding, it simply was not on the blog earlier because I haven’t been too good at keeping the blog up to date lately. Many more blog posts are to come this year, from recent and not so recent work. For starters, have a look at these Newland Hall wedding photos.

At their wedding, I had the pleasure to see Dan and Louise again. I had photographed their wedding the previous year (which you can see if you click here) and which was featured in Love my dress. They were the ones who recommended my services to Martin and Kate. It is always a pleasure to see my past clients in other weddings and knowing that they are the reason why I am shooting another wedding.

Martin and Kate’s wedding was travel-themed, as they love to travel. Each table represented a country and the table plan was displayed in a beautiful vintage world map.

And…they also had an amazing vintage campervan!

Plateau wedding

Well…I cannot believe I am blogging this beautiful wedding of this gorgeous couple after such a long time!

This wedding took place more than a year ago, too many things on my blogging list…

Laura and Danny (see their engagement shoot here) tied the knot in a ceremony  in St. Andrew’s church in Hornchurch and I was covering Laura’s preparations before the ceremony before whilst Kenny, my second photographer, was with the groom.

Second shooting an A-Team wedding in Hunton Park

This was my second time working at Hunton Park, and second shooting for Kenny Wong again, as we collaborate on a regular basis.

I was covering the groom’s preparations in this occasion, which is always fun and different. I don’t get to shoot the groom’s preparations normally when I work for my own clients, as the main photographer I always stay with the bride, so it is great to second shoot every now and then and get to cover these other parts of the day and explore my  more masculine side!

As a surprise, the groomsmen had an A-team van prepared for the groom, who was a fan of the TV show, ready to take them to the church. Driven by Mr.T lookalike! I was lucky enough to travel with them in the van. I cannot really say that being a wedding photographer is boring…

The wedding ceremony was at Saint Mary Magdalene’s church in Enfield, north London. This church is absolutely amazing, outside and inside, specially inside. A shame that we were quite restricted and the taking of the photos was only allowed from above and we couldn’t get close to the bride and the groom.

After the ceremony in Enfield, we all moved to Hunton Park again for the reception and wedding breakfast.

There, there were a lot of kids playing and a many kids trying out the fascinators and hats from their mums, which I captured in some photos you can see below.

Northcote House wedding

Kate and Phil tied the knot  nearly two months ago in one of many beautiful days of this glorious summer and I would like to share with you some of the images of the day.

The day started at St. Augustine’s church in Hammersmith, followed by the reception at Northcote House in Sunningdale Park, near Ascot.

Northcote House was a great venue for such a summery wedding, the grounds are gorgeous, with lots of space for the kids to have fun, including a huge chess board. Apart from the kids, we (Kate, Phil and me) also had some fun on the chess board and went there for some fun photos.

Second shooting in Portsmouth

I love second shooting every now and then. Of course I love shooting my own weddings, being in charge of everything photographywise…editing and delivering the final product to my clients. But second shooting is fun and more relaxed than being the main tog, so it is a great opportunity to second shoot for someone else whenever I have a free date and they need an extra pair of hands.

These photos here were taken by me on May whilst second shooting at a wedding in Portsmouth.

I started the day at the impressive Portchester Castle in Portsmouth, where the groom and groomsmen were waiting for the arrival of guests at St. Mary’s Church. St. Mary’s Church is a church inside the castle grounds. The whole place was gorgeous, with the south walls leading to the sea, and they day couldn’t be more perfect, what a beautiful sky we had! I truly enjoyed taking photos of the surroundings.

I was there covering this part of the day while Kenny was covering the bride’s preparations.

I have been collaborating with Kenny for a while second shooting for him when he needs someone and I am free, and the other way around too.

As a matter of fact, yesterday was one of those days…Yesterday’s wedding was so much fun, including a surprise the bride prepared for the groom and made for some great photos. I will be posting some of those photos here (my second shooting experiences) in the near future, unfortunately a bit too early to share that now.

A giant chess wedding, a seak peek

I just wanted to share one image from one of my last jobs, before I make a full blog post on this beautiful wedding.

There was a huge chess on the reception venue grounds which was obviously a great prop for photos.

Here you have Kate and Phil with the King and Queen of that huge chess.

Renaissance Hotel Wedding: Jennie and Alex

Jennie and Alex got married on October last year and they had a truly amazing wedding, featured a few weeks ago in OMG.The day started at the incredible Renaissance Hotel in St. Pancras, what an amazing venue! the architecture, all the backgrounds, the beautiful dome, the staircase…everything is to die for!Jennie was there with her bridesmaids, having their make-up and hair done by Kirsty from thebeautyfoundation. Her bridesmaids wore different dresses in blue and green peacock feather shades, as this was the theme of the wedding, they also wore peacock feathers on their hair and on their bouquets. Jennie looked stunning on her vintage Sally Lacock dress.

Jennie’s bouquet was from Euphoricflowers

After a couple of hours with the girls it was time for me to get to the church in the heart of the city and wait for Jennie’s arrival there. I had been in the church previously and the first time I saw it I was very impressed by how big and bright St. Helens is.

The ceremony was beautiful and after hugging their families and friends, it was photo time! They had requested some group photos that I took outside the church and then I had the opportunity to be with them alone for a few minutes to get their portraits.

I couldn’t be happier with the location and venues of this wedding, so many backdrops and nice spots for photos, incredible! in around half an hour we got so much variety, outdoors and indoors…The Renaissance hotel is actually the same building as St. Pancras International Rail Station and we went inside the station for some photos in the platform, this one posted here being one of my favorites of the day.

Central London wedding: St. Helen’s Bishopsgate church and St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, a sneak peek

It looks like once you get your work featured on wedding blogs, everything comes at the same time. Last week was Louise and Dan’s wedding on lovemydress and today is Jennie and Alex’s on OMG.
This is great, and it cannot be a better start of the year, it seems like the 13 is not such a bad number after all!! Quite the contrary on my case 🙂
As it is being common lately, this is just a sneak peek with two of my favorite photos of the day, which I also put on my website. But I promise that my next blog post will be a full wedding.
The wedding reception was at the absolutely stunning Renaissance Hotel at St. Pancras. Beautiful building inside and out! Amazing architecture! The hotel is communicated with the International train station, so we went there for a few minutes to get some shots. Aren’t train stations romantic?

Broke Hill Golf Park wedding: Zoe and Alex

After the sneak peek two days ago, here I am, ready to share more photos of Zoe and Alex’s wedding.
Zoe is a friend of Donna, whose wedding I photographed  two months before this one, and of course, she and  Luke were there to celebrate the day with Zoe and Alex, and it was great to see them again. I always love to see my couples again after they are married.
As Donna’s, Zoe’s big day was also bright and rain free.
The ceremony was at the very very beautiful St.Margaret’s church in Halstead, and then everyone moved to The Broke Hill Golf Park nearby. It was the perfect day for a champagne reception outside before the wedding breakfast and for hanging out in the terrace later on on the day, with the sunset in the background.
We also did the bouquet toss outside and all, there was so much light until the end 🙂
I loved the simplicity and freshness of Zoe’s dress and also her bridesmaids, in purple, perfect for a hot day like this one, they were all so elegant!
