Strawberry Hill House Wedding Photography

Strawberry Hill house is a wedding venue in Twickenham that reminds me of a scene from a disney movie every time I drive past. It's a venue local to me so I am lucky enough to have photographed there on a number of occasions. On this glorious sunny day in the height of summer the house looked every bit the fairytale wedding venue, and it proved to be that on this wedding of epic proportions. The day started not in Twickenham but slap bang in central London where the bride to be was preparing with her family and bridesmaids. Only a stones throw away the groom was easing into the day with his closest friends. It was so chilled when I arrived at the hotel and I had a great time photographing everyone, Christelle looked amazing in her dress and it wasn't long till we hot-footed it to the church. I say that as the temperature was sky high!

The Orthodox church service was a sight to behold and a real pleasure to photograph. The church was so welcoming, the service itself was so interesting, fun and serious in equal measure. It's a very special feeling being part of these intimate moments and I love recording them. The guys left the church with a sea of confetti raining down on them before jumping in the car to drive across London. If you've never visited Strawberry Hill house you simply must. It's an incredible example of gothic architecture. Wedding photography at strawberry hill house as you can imagine is a real pleasure. Every room is unique and offers an amazing backdrop to your photographs. The colours are superb, the sense of grandeur is off the scale and the rooms provide an amazing sense of intimacy. If you also take into account the beautiful grounds you have access to there are endless options for photographs. We arrived in good time before the guests which meant we also had time to climb onto the roof of the building.

Our newly weds were then introduced into the gardens of Strawberry Hill House by a number of Lebanese drummers. Everyone really got into the spirit of things and it was magical, so entertaining. We had great music, dancing and Christelle and Nick ended up in the air paraded about on the shoulders of friends and family. It was so much fun to capture. After a little breather it was time to settle in the marquee for some truly outstanding food and some quality speeches.

This was a wedding that had everything going on, it didn't stop after the speeches either. We had sparklers, games on the lawn, more incredible food and some fantastic dancing to an amazing live band. You guys know how to throw a party!

Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photography - Tegan and Andy

Pembroke Lodge Wedding Photography

When I get an enquiry for photography a Pembroke Lodge wedding, my eyes instantly light up with excitement. It's a stunning wedding venue in leafy Richmond Park with panoramic views over the River Thames. Whether you're in the Belvedere suite or the Russell suite, the staff really go the extra mile to make the day so special. Tegan and Andy's wedding was slap bang in peak season over the Bank Holiday weekend which was surely the hottest wedding I've ever photographed. An issue we don't always have to deal with!

Tegan prepared for her wedding in nearby Teddington with her bridesmaids while Andy was at his family home. that is where my fabulous second shooter for the day Deji caught up with the boys. I love capturing the events of the morning. There so much fun and nervous excitement is flowing everywhere. Having both the bride and groom's mornings photographed really adds to the overall story of the wedding day.

Emotive Wedding Photography

I absolutely love seeing those raw emotions during the ceremony. It's definitely a privilege to photograph these occasions. This was a celebration that had plenty of heartfelt moments . From the second Tegan's first bridesmaid entered the room till that march back down the Isle there were so many touching moments

Richmond Park Wedding Photography

Let's talk about that light, beautiful sunshine was in abundance all day. Thankfully there was number of shady spots for all the guests to gather during the day while from the early evening it was an absolute pleasure to be outside and gorgeous for photography. Tegan and Andy were superstars and rocked the time we had together in the gardens. So much laughter and love was captured. It really is a joy photographing these special moments knowing that these will be looked at for many years to come.

The room in the Russell suite looked perfect. The already stunning ambience was enhanced with very classy looking floral decorations and a cake from a British bake off winner none the less. Lots of laughs could be heard from this room during the speeches which had us all entertained.

London Wetlands Centre Wedding Photography - Olivia and Matt

London Wetlands Centre Wedding Photography

I was delighted to be asked to photograph Olivia and Matt's wedding and to be their London Wetland Centre wedding photographer. The day started for me in Barnes, a leafy Borough of London close to the river thames and home to many conservation areas and parks. I love photographing weddings in this part of London. It's very local to me and is an area I know very well. A great area for getting away from the bustle of London not to mention plenty of great restaurants and pubs. The views aren't too shabby either!

I met Olivia at her parents home in Barnes. It was such a lovely relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. It made my job of capturing the morning preparations an absolute pleasure. Thank you to Olivia and the family for making me feel so welcome. While I was in Barnes, Deji my second shooter for the day was capturing Matt getting ready with his family in Hammersmith.

Olivia arrived looking majestic at the church and was walked down the aisle by her father. A really lovely ceremony took place with the most amazing choir and musical arrangement I've ever heard. I was totally blown away by how entertaining the ceremony was. Hats off to all of those involved. Afterwards everyone gathered outside for a confetti run through the church grounds before heading off to the Wetlands Centre.

The London Wetland Centre is only a 10 minute walk from the church, a lovely walk in the summer sunshine. The guests then gathered in the Observatory which looks over the wetlands with the London skyline as the backdrop. What a great way to enjoy your canapé's and a glass of champagne. you can also do a spot of bird watching! There are lots of open spaces at the wetlands centre which brings many photo opportunities as you take a stroll in the grounds. This is a must to make full use of this beautiful venue. With all the formal photos out of the way it was then time to get the party started. Here are some of the photos that I took from the day.

Southend Barns Wedding Photography - Anna and Adam

Southend Barns Weddings

Located in Chichester, Southend Barns is a truly stunning location for a wedding. The barns have been beautifully restored and offer plenty of space from the gorgeous ceremony room to the main barn and secret garden. There are an abundance of outside locations for romantic portraits. Anna and Adam were married here on a beautiful sunny day in May. Having always wanted to photograph at Southend Barns I jumped at the chance to help Yasmina Nadine at this wedding.

After the ceremony we went for a stroll around the lovely grounds and Adam and Anna had a german tradition of having a competition to see who could cut round there half of a heart. It was a close call! I think you'll agree as well that the cake here was amazing, almost too good to eat.

I hope you enjoyed looking through a selection of photographs from this beautiful wedding. I'd love to hear about how the planning is going for your own wedding. Get in touch via my contact form here.

The Green, Liskeard Weddings

The Green located in Liskeard is a fantastic complex to get married. So many different buildings from barns, cottages, courtyards and woodland which makes it a great location for wedding photography.

I've known Lisa and Will a number of years having worked with them both professionally. It was a pleasure and an honour to be asked to photograph their special day. After extreme showers the day before we were all delighted that the weather decided to grace us with glorious sunshine which complemented the lovely surroundings at The Green.

I loved how Lisa when entering the wedding barn did a little dance down the isle, great moves. A lovely emotional at times ceremony followed before the guys were heading back down the isle for a confetti shower of pom poms, a first for me.

The red brick barn was all ready set for the wedding grub which was fabulous and was followed by the speeches before I took the guys for a little stroll around the grounds

I love an evening do that has a live band as it really gets the dancefloor going and it was no exception here and after a sparkler run I left the party to continue late into the night.
