Claridges Wedding Photography – Henry and Charlotte

So here they are, the much awaited images from Henry and Charlotte’s wedding at Claridges last week!   What a perfect British Summers day they had for it.  We arrived in London early and Bev joined the girls in the suite at Claridges for the final preparations with her Bridesmaids and also Henry’s Mum, Sylvia.  There was lots of excitement and laughter throughout the morning.  While Bev was with the girls, Barrie headed over to meet the guys near the Church at Hampstead where they enjoyed a nerve calming drink prior to heading to the church for the ceremony.  The ceremony was conducted by a friend of the couple, who works with Charlotte.  This added something very special to the words that were said and the vows that were exchanged.  Charlotte did not stop smiling all day butView full post »

Stationers Hall London wedding photography – Erica & Deri

London wedding photography – Erica & Deri were married on Saturday at Our Lady & St Catherine of Siena on Bow Road in the East End of London. Father Michael presided over the wedding ceremony in a very calm and relaxed fashion on an unseasonable warm afternoon in October. Erica and Derri then departed for their reception venue the rather beautiful surroundings of the Stationers Hall just around the corner from St Paul Cathedral, The original hall was destroyed in the great fire of London but the new hall dating from 1673 is a rather special place to have a wedding reception. After greeting their guests with champagne upon arrival Erica & Deri wanted a few of my signature photos in and around Stationers Hall and I hope they are as delighted with the results as I am.

Monkey Island wedding photography – Siobhan and Mark

Monkey Island wedding photography London Wow what an amazing wedding!. I was lucky enough to be asked to photograph Siobhan and Mark’s wedding when I met them at Louise and Will’s wedding back in December, Siobhan loved the creative photos I was taking and wanted the same dramatic photos for her own autumn wedding to Mark in September. They were fortunate to have a nice warm sunny day for their outdoor ceremony on the lawns at Monkey Island. Unfortunately one of Mark’s best men “Fingers” couldn’t make it as he has been posted to Afghanistan so Mark had a life-size cardboard cutout made of him and it was carried around all day and even featured in some of the group photos. He also record a very amusing speech and that video was projected during theView full post »
