Fennes Wedding

The last week of April I was documenting Claire and Richard´s wedding at the beautiful Fennes Manor House in Bocking, Essex.

Both ceremony and reception were held there, and I love when that happens, as I find these weddings more stress-free both for photographers and guests; everyone can relax and enjoy the whole day since the moment they arrive.

Fennes was a perfect location with beautiful grounds including a pond and a beautiful small bridge, and also charming rooms inside the house in a Georgian style.

Claire was looking stunning with her beautiful dress complemented by a headpiece which I loved and a feathered bridal shawl.

The ceremony was really emotional and both Claire and Richard looked sooo happy!

Claire had a cascading bridal bouquet made with orchids, isn’t it gorgeous?

The grounds of the venue were perfect for couple photos

And the bridge was great too, not only for their portraits, but to do some informal group photos. The one below is one of my favorites of the day with Claire and two of her friends (I loved the blue suit and pink ties!)

And right before the first dance we all went outside to enjoy a brief fireworks show

Youtube Wedding Photography Slideshow

Just a very quick post to share with you my first Youtube slideshow created with the Youtube Editor.

This is a selection of some of my favorite wedding photos that are already on my gallery (at least most of them). But I think it makes a difference to look at them with music. It makes me feel emotional and remember every single wedding… I hope you enjoy it.

Routemaster Bus Weddings

From January, I had the idea of doing a compilation of some sort to feature a few different weddings on the same post.

The initial idea was a compilation of all the weddings I shot last year, whith the best of 2012, but already on April, now it seems a bit late for that (I guess this is the kind of thing we do a the start of the year). I thought that instead, I will make a post with photos of all the weddings I shot with routemaster buses.

Routemaster buses are getting a really popular thing, or at least I photograph a good percentage of weddings that have one! Not because it is trendy, but because it is a really great idea, I would recommed to hire one of these buses to couples getting married.

Hiring one of these buses is a great solution for how your guests are going to travel from the ceremony to the reception, and not only that, but keeps everyone together, so people gets to chat and have a drink sometimes even before they arrive to the reception. And it is a beautiful background for pictures too (a great plus from my point of view). In one of the weddings you can see on these pictures, they had a number of guests coming from outside London and the bus didn’t just go from point A to B, but it gave the wedding guests a brief taster of the London highlights too.

You can see some of the weddings featured here:

Donna and Luke

Gina and James

City of London wedding, Prism and Lamb Tavern in Leadenhall Market

Hannah and James got married on a chilly but lovely day on early November last year in the city of London.
They chose Prism as their wedding venue for both the ceremony and reception. Prism is an elegant and stunning venue on Leadenhall Street in the city of London, with high ceilings, greek style columns and a big painting decorating the main wall. The atmosphere created for the ceremony was great, with dim light and candles on the floor leading to the altar.Prism is right in front of Leadenhall Market, a covered victorian market from the 14th century. I had seen this market before only in pictures, but never in real life until I went there to make my research before the wedding. It is a bit hidden but totally worth visiting, so pretty and elegant! As the market is only a few steps away from Prism, Hannah and James decided that would be a good plan to go to the Lamb Tavern in the market for the reception drinks whilst Prism was set up to hold the wedding breakfast. The day of the wedding the market had already a Christmas tree, even though it was only early November. This came as a surprise but a good one, and I could include the tree in some of the photos, and arrange all the group photos around it.This area in London is really great for photos with so many incredible buildings around, such as the Gherking and Lloyds Building, we didn’t have to go very far away to get nice backgrounds for their portraits.Hannah got ready in a hotel nearby and we walked together to the ceremony. She looked stunning in her greek style wedding dress!and she was such a radiant, happy bride all day long!bridal preparations before wedding at the apex hotel in the city of londonblack and white photos of a bride having her hair done on her wedding day
