Wedding photography

Posted by on in Weddings

I was very excited to be asked to A Most Curious Wedding Fair in London.  Most Curious and it’s handpicked exhibitors draw inspiration from the lifestyle trends around them, your lifestyle trends, not weddings trends, weddings shouldn’t have trends, they should be about you having fun and being creative, dreaming big and most importantly an expression and celebration of who you are as a couple.The fair aims to encapsulate that with it’s mix of innovative, design-led suppliers, fashion shows, entertainment, styling, activities, music and performance. The things you can’t quite put your finger on but you know you want it on your day? This is the place to find it. Hackney Downs Studios was a cool venue space for their Spring Summer 2014 show and it was great to meet with so many brides there.  With over 90 stalls it was a packed show and I only had a few brief chances for photos, and didnt get around to photograph all the stands. I did squeeze in two little photoshoots with Oilhana who modeled for Sammantha Walden & Federica Bruno and The Faun in the Lemonade and Laughing gas caravan. Which is basically an uber loved cool caravan, the newest addition to the L&LG family, available to hire.  What fun. I met lots of brides and felt the selection of stalls and the organisation were both excellent. The two fashion shows were packed out, as I was right by the catwalk there was a sea of heads of brides all ready for insiration from what was on offer.  Well done to Ruby, Sarah and Cat for a brilliant event.  Have a look at teh amazing video at the end for a terrific slice of what was there!

Back in 2011 I attended Lisa Devlin's Photography Farm, there I met up with Photographer Jeni Smith and we have worked together on many weddings since. This was the wedding of Ross and Bader, which I second shot with Jen, it was a totally awesome wedding of the lovliest two guys. Orchardleigh House was their amazing venue down in Somerset and I enjoyed every single minute of it.  I always love the bridal preparations part of every wedding I shoot, so two grooms getting ready was different for me, what a laugh that was, especially when I asked them to have a practice of the Hip-Hop R&B first-surprise dance they had been learning! SO when you get to those photos just add "Jason Derulo 'Talk Dirty'" in your head!! Thank you Jeni and Ross and Bader too.  Here are some of my favourites from the photos I took during their fabulous wedding day.

Nikki and Colin were married at the Inn at Woburn, they had a small gathering of close family and friends for their winter ceremony, here are a few snippets from the lovely day.  The couple's daughter, little Emily was the sweetest flower girl and really enjoyed the time before the wedding with her mummy and aunty. The big grin on her face when she tried on mummy's pearls just makes me smile. A wedding day gift from her husband to be was so thoughtful, a wooden box containing lots of personal suprises, including a poem, which revealed details of the honeymoon! Nikki's flowers were Calla lillies in complementary wine colours. We were allowed access to the Woburn estate, so slipped away to take some photos outside, despite some rain and the darkness.  The full gallery of images is available for guests to view. I wish you both every happiness and thank you for choosing me to photograph your day.
