London Warehouse Wedding | Tien + Kenzo

London Warehouse Wedding | Tien + Kenzo

When Tien and Kenzo first got in touch about booking in the photography for their London Warehouse Wedding at Dilston Grove in London, here is what they said. ‘We love your style of photography. A really good mix of awesome highly editorial group shots coupled with some really great reportage style ones. In my head, I would like to shoot all the couple and group shots before all our guests arrive so we can spend as much time having fun with them as possible. We want our wedding to be a helluva party.’

Well that sounded perfect to me. So I went to where Tien was getting ready with her bridesmaids and my second shooter, Sam met up with Kenzo and his groomsmen. We all came together at the amazing Dilston Grove and started with group shots and their portraits. This did make everything after that point very relaxed and they could spend all their time with their guests. It also did make me wonder why more weddings don’t run this way?! ( Big thanks to Laura at Devine Bride – their wedding co-ordinator)


 

It’s the way that you know what I thought I knew, It’s the beat my HEART SKIPS when I’m with you …

 


Artist Residence London Wedding | Lucy + Jacob

Artist Residence London Wedding | Lucy + Jacob

When you work for a supercool chain of hotels, trying to find the perfect venue for your wedding might be quite difficult. You might have pretty high standards, but luckily for Lucy, her bosses at the Artist Residence suggested that she held her wedding reception at their London Hotel. In fact they gave over the entire place to Lucy and Jacob for the day.

So when it came to doing portraits, not only did we have the surrounding streets of Pimlico to play in, we also had ALL of the hotel bedrooms. The decor and the light in all of them was so great but my favourite shot has to be with the blue shark print. You should have seen us all squashed into a bathroom to take it. Totally worth it though!


On the wrong side of the road, ‘tween the leaves and the VELVET SNOW, I got lost in your eyes …


Greenwich London Engagement Shoot | Holly + Simon

Greenwich London Engagement Shoot | Holly + Simon

The lovely Holly and Simon met me at a pub by the train station in Greenwich at the start of their engagement shoot, because A. It was raining far too hard to go out and shoot and B. They wanted a quick drink to steady their nerves! It can be a little daunting to be photographed together in a public place but I’m always down for starting with a chat over some drinks/coffees/teas/whatevers.

Apart from driving you into the pub, the other great thing about rain is that it clears the streets. We had a normally very busy part of London pretty much to ourselves, apart from the odd hardcore sightseer. It’s so lovely around Greenwich and the river and you soon find some cute places for photos.


When you smile I see STARS IN THE SKY, when you smile I see sunrise. And I know you’ve been thinking of me and I know how you want it to be …


Usk Castle Wedding | Charlotte + Will

Usk Castle Wedding | Charlotte + Will

I travelled not too far into Wales to the beautiful Usk Castle where Charlotte and Will hosted their summer wedding. Charlotte’s family live nearby in the village and she got ready at their home. Will is from slightly further afield, the US and his friends loved spending the day in a real life castle. Their outdoor ceremony was perfectly personal with friends supporting them and the huppah as their celebrant conducted a hand fasting and they read out their own vows.

Charlotte is very much a vintage queen and happened upon her antique wedding dress at a car boot sale of all places. Costing a mere £50, you’d think she would have just snapped it up but true to her own unique style, she bartered them down to just £30. It was even a perfect fit and looked sensational on the wedding day. Now, if I could give an award to the best page boys ever at a wedding, it would have to be to these gorgeous brothers.


Dance with me, I want my ARM ABOUT YOU. The charm about you will carry me through to Heaven …


Brighton Engagement Shoot | Tien + Kenzo

Brighton Engagement Shoot | Tien + Kenzo

Can we come down to Brighton for our Engagement Shoot? Well of course! I love it when folk come down to my home town for these. I don’t think I will ever run out of places to shoot. Tien and Kenzo are probably two of the busiest people you will ever meet so they love to make the most of any days off that they get together.

We met for coffee and they told me that they completely clash on style. Kenzo would love everything to be minimal and Tien loves junk and antique shops. So we had a wander around the North Laines in Brighton. Part designer shops, part crazy old bric a brac shops – so everyone was pretty happy! Also how pretty are Tien’s pink boots!?


They say, oh my god, I see the way you shine. TAKE YOUR HAND, my dear and place them both in mine …
