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 »

Lagham hotel wedding Sahar and Alex were married in the splendid surroundings of the Langham Hotel just off Oxford Street.

Bride at Eastnor Castle

Eastnor Castle Wedding Photographers

On Saturday we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Saori and Phil at Eastnor Castle in Ledbury.  Phil is a wedding photographer himself and it is always an honour to be trusted with photographing the wedding of a fellow professional!  Eastnor Castle is a magnificent wedding venue and absolutely fantastic for wedding photography, particularly when the weather is as lovely as it was for Saori and Phil’s day. Saori and Phil chose to see each other for the first time on their wedding day at the bottom of the grand staircase in the Castle.  It was lovely to see Saori, looking a million dollars in a beautiful lace Pronovias dress making her way down the stairs with her father to a very nervous Phil with friends and family looking on.  Unfortunately we were unable toView full post »
