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.

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!

Oaks Farm Wedding: Nicola and Gary

Nicola and Gary got married on a very sunny September day. The ceremony was at St. Josephs church in Bromley and the reception at the gorgeous Oaks Farm in Shirley, where the bride, groom and guests enjoyed a garden reception in the sun before the wedding breakfast was served. I really enjoyed working at this beautiful venue, it was truly a perfect day for working there. It has been one of my favorite wedding venues this summer and I hope to go back there next year!
In between all these photos posted here there is a very special one for Nicola and Gary, as it is a replica of one of Nicola’s parents wedding photos: the two of them inside the car looking outside through the window, the car even had the same floral decorations at the back, Nicola sent me her parent photo weeks before and I think we got a great replica!
A big thank you to Nicola and Gary for choosing me as your photographer, it was a pleasure to capture such a beautiful day and you are such an amazing couple!
Thanks to my second shooter Kenny Wong too for helping me on the day.

Stevenage wedding: Gina and James

I photographed Gina and James’ wedding in Stevenage one of the many rainy days we had this summer in the UK.
This was a very moody day weatherwise, with a sunny start for Gina’s preparations, starting to rain right at the moment she arrived at the church and with a huge thunderstorm during the ceremony. Luckily the rain stopped just in time for the garden reception before the wedding breakfast was served at the venue.
The reception room was decorated by them and looked amazing in white and pink, the same colors as Gina’s dress.
Gina had her make up done in the morning at a local beauty salon and that was the first time for me being able to photograph this event in a quiet room where only three people were present: Gina the make-up artist and myself.  A clock on the wall gave me something to play with in my compositions and I find these photos with the time very meaningful: an impatient bride waiting for the time to get married.
You can have a look at some of their engagement photos here

Chislehurst wedding: Donna and Luke

I met Donna quite a long time ago, when I had been doing wedding photography for a little while and had only a few weddings in my portfolio. She trusted and loved my work from the very beginning, even bringing her friends to book my services too (I will be the photographer for her friend Zoe in two weeks too). That meant  a lot for me at the time and still does today; I am so happy that after a long wait of a year and a half I got to photograph her wedding on a lovely Saturday on August.
The ceremony was at St. Nicholas Church in Chislehurst, not far from London. A very pretty church with a very pretty bench covered by a low tree that we used for photos after the ceremony, and Donna’s dress was the perfect one for these bench photos! All guests (and myself) traveled from the ceremony site to the reception at Club Langley on a routemaster bus, I am getting really good at shooting on a moving bus!, I have had quite a few weddings this year with a routemaster red bus and I will make a blog post specially with those photos soon.

Southampton Wedding

Kerri and Dan got married on a rainy Saturday (as it has been common lately) last month in Southampton.
The ceremony was in an amazingly beautiful church, my favorite church so far this year, Saint Leonard’s in Bursledon, which has its origins on the twelfth century and the ceremony at the Aegeas Bowl, also known as the Rose Bowl. After taking a big group shot on the stands, we were allowed to go and take some photos on the pitch too.

Islington Wedding: Marnie & James (a rainy one)

Marnie and James got married in Islington the wettest month I remember in all my time in the UK. The previous days I kept checking the weather forecast over and over hoping that the rain will stop for their big day. But it didn’t, it was a non-stop rain day. However, even though we had to take photos outside much quicker than it usually would be, the addition of white umbrellas really worked and we ended up with some beautiful photos. The ceremony was in St. James’s Church in Islington followed by the reception at Assembly Hall at Islington Town Hall with a brief stop in a small square nearby underneath two blossoming trees which provided shelter for the bride and the groom. We also had some fun with some “dancing in the rain” kind of shots in the middle of the street. That was a very good point of the rainy day, we pretty much had the street for ourselves, which is always great for photos.
