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!

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

Louise and Dan

Southend-on-Sea wedding at Porters and Roslin Beach Hotel

I can’t believe it has taken me such a long time to blog one of my favorite weddings ever!

Louise and Dan got married in Southend-on-Sea on August last year and I was lucky to be chosen as their photographer. Their wedding was not only full of beautiful details , but also full of emotion, and this is an excellent combination to get good photos!

Their wedding has also been featured in lovemydress recently with many details given by Louise, so I am not going to go over all of them, but there is only one of them that I really want to share here as I think it is a fantastic story. And this is the way Dan and Louise got to know each other… Louise’s words:

In theory Dan and I should not even be together let alone married. Let me explain; to start with I never actually met Dan before our first date. He saw me dancing in our local bar one cold Sunday night in January 2009 and with Dutch Courage decided to put his number in my coat pocket, an act that I now know was totally out of character for Dan. Dan is actually very shy and retiring unlike me. As I was leaving the bar the number actually fell out of my pocket. A passer-by picked it up and handed it to my friend who passed it to me. As we got outside I opened it to reveal his number and a short message asking me to call him.In normal circumstances I would have binned the note and thought nothing else of it. However, I had made a New Year’s resolution to go out with everyone who asked me so the die was cast. I went and met him in the same bar a week later and we’ve never looked back!

Isn’t it amazing?

And back to the wedding day…I started at the Roslin Beach Hotel with Dan, who was already there taking care of all the details in the room while Louise was getting ready. Some guests were at the Hotel with him and a Routemaster bus was waiting for them outside to take them to Porters, the mayoral residence where the wedding ceremony and drinks reception took place.

Dan and their guests gathered in the garden at Porters, where a marquee had been set up just in case the weather was not good, but luckily this was not an issue and they relaxed there for a little while before it was the time for the ceremony.

Louise arrived on a vintage car and looked stunning on her Candy Anthony 1950’s inspired dress. The dress was knee lenght, very appropiate for an August wedding and specially great for the photos after at the beach!

Louise bought her accesories before her dress because she felt in love with this bird cage veil from Victoria Millesime and was also wearing a matching bracelet. Her hair was perfect and the pin curls suit her and her dress really well.

After the ceremony everyone got back to the garden again where there was some time there with drinks and canapes (and some photos too) before going to the Roslin Hotel. They had an ice cream tricycle with a vintage feel that suited very well the whole theme of their wedding. This tricycle and ice creams also made very good opportunities for photos!

And before going to the Roslin Hotel, it was time for a few photos at the beach (right in front of the hotel). Louise changed her shoes for a pair of silver wellies and it was  at this time of the day when the red netting underneath her lace dress came to life.

I usually say that I love central London and urban weddings but…who can resist  a seaside wedding?I absolutely loved this one, having the sea in front of your wedding venue is pretty amazing and I hope to work in Sounthend-on-Sea again in the future.
