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 …


Lauderdale House London Wedding | Grace + Deri

Lauderdale House London Wedding | Grace + Deri

Sometimes I get booked for just a few hours to cover a wedding. I quite like the short and sweet approach, (like Grace’s short and sweet wedding dress). Not everyone wants all day, beginning to end photos and as I charge by the hour, the time I spend shooting a wedding is entirely up to you. You might be wondering, what does short coverage look like? You can still end up with a fair few images, think about it, the middle part of any wedding is the busiest!

Grace and Deri wanted me to start at their wedding ceremony which was held at Lauderdale House in Highgate, North London. They had it for a couple of hours so we popped over to the park for a stroll about and some photos in the flower beds. I also joined them at The Peasant pub for the wedding reception and left as they all sat for dinner but not without taking a portrait of them inside the pub. Its interiors are pretty damn cool.


I can’t seem to drown you out long enough, I fell victim to the SOUND OF YOUR LOVE. You’re like a song that I ain’t ready to stop, I got nothing but you on my mind …


The Battersea Club, London Wedding | Jen + Pip

The Battersea Club, London Wedding | Jen + Pip

The Battersea Club is a very rare thing… a private members club in London that hasn’t been redecorated since the 1970s. The very lovely Jen and Pip took it over for their summer wedding and set about transforming it into the ultimate party venue. They confessed that they ended up spending more money on glitter curtains that the venue hire fee. That’s my kind of wedding for sure.

It was pitch and camp, disco and Mexico all mashed up together with a ton of cute DIY details. But also we need to talk about their outfits, how adorable did they and their baby daughter look? Jen’s gorgeous frock was from Temperley London in case you are wondering. This wedding was such a huge amount of fun to be a part of and to shoot, I mean look at all this colour!


You’re my reality yet I’m lost IN A DREAM. You’re the first, the last, my everything.


Mirror Mirror Editorial Shoot | Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Mirror Mirror Editorial Shoot | Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

It is a ridiculous amount of fun doing these shoots for Kat’s magazine, Rock n Roll Bride. The team are always so adorable to work with and when we come together, it’s a creative force. We all bring something different to the collaboration and it’s exciting to see the end results published in a print magazine, not just ending up online.

Charlie, our model for this one was deliberately chosen for her tattoos and the styling was very clean. So I knew that I wanted to keep the photography sharp and simple. The additional element of the mirrors meant doubling up the impact of everything and it was fun to play around with the reflections.


 

Cause with your hand in my hand and a POCKET FULL OF SOUL, I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go. Just put your hand on the glass, I’m here trying to pull you through …

The George in Rye Wedding | Natasha + Dom

The George in Rye Wedding | Natasha + Dom

Entering the ancient town of Rye in Sussex is like stepping back in time. It is such a pretty and quaint place and if you decide to have your wedding at the Town Hall then you will announce to the world that you are married not by updating your status on Facebook but by the very loud bell and shouting of the local town cryer.

He will also noisily escort you and you guests down to the very beautiful George Hotel if that is where your reception is, just like Natasha and Dom. After a swift couple of champagnes, we headed for a stroll around those cobbled streets for some portraits before joining the party in the sunny hotel garden. This was a lovely laid back wedding.


When you’re lost and you’re alone and you can’t get back again, I will FIND YOU darling and I will bring you home …
