Porters Civic House wedding

Clare and Tony got married in Southend-on- Sea, a place I have been in the past photographing another wedding. In this occasion, the civil ceremony also took place in Porters Civic House.

Porters Civic House and Mayor Parlour is a beautiful grade I listed building in Southend-on- Sea, perfect for a civil ceremony, with a beautiful back garden to have some drinks to celebrate after the ceremony and take some photos.

After leaving Porters, and being in Southend-on- sea, we went to take some photos with the sea in the background, of course! I do love the sea and photographing couples around it every time I get a chance, so romantic!

Clare and Tony’s was a very intimate wedding with not too many guests, so they celebrated the reception in their own house (after a few drinks and photos in Porters). I do love these kind of weddings, and I find myself photographing more and more weddings like this, with a small number of guests and receptions celebrated in private houses. I definitely think that these weddings’ atmosphere is more relaxed and if I were a bride, I would definitely go for this option. I’ll need to get myself a big house with a big garden first!  :)

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.

Top hats wedding

Jules and Mark tied the knot a few months back in South London, and they chose the Harvest Home pub as their wedding venue.

I absolutely love pub weddings! They are so cozy and so very British…This was a very relaxed day and  a picturesque top hats wedding with a Man of Honor, a Best Woman and the bride wearing a burgundy dress, I like brides and grooms thinking outside the box!

Pembroke Lodge Wedding

Wow! I cannot believe it has taken me this long to blog this wedding…I am so behind on my blogging! I have not only some weddings from last year to blog, but  from last summer! This wedding was on September, 5 months ago already.

The bride and groom  are Amaia and Auran, and they got married in the gorgeous Pembroke Lodge, in Richmond Park.

From the first moment I met them, I got a connection with them, specially with Amaia, who is from Spain (so do I) and book me as their photographer proved to be a good choice. There were groups of people speaking both english and spanish, so it was quite useful being able to communicate in both languages, specially for organizing the group shots.

Amaia is from the basque country, a region in northern Spain with its own traditions and her friends prepare a surprise for her.

They learnt how to dance the traditional basque country dance for her. This was a really beautiful thing to see and such a surprise for her, it was very emotional.

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.
