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.


North Hidden Barn Festival Wedding | Amanda + Rob

North Hidden Barn Festival Wedding | Amanda + Rob

This pair are big into music so when they got to planning their wedding, they decided to be inspired by their favourite music festivals and have a festival wedding at the gorgeous North Hidden Barn. A gem of a venue that lends itself so well to this style of wedding. Rob’s a brit and Amanda is from the US so the whole thing was a mash up of both cultures.

They went all out on the lighting, smoke machines and confetti canons, well the groom does put on events for a living and he had a heck of a lot of fun planning this one. He also surprised the bride with concert tickets to Jack White, Britney Spears AND The Beach Boys.. I mean c’mon!!! That boy is a keeper, right?


I may not always love you but long as there are STARS ABOVE you. You never need to doubt it, I’ll make you so sure about it …


The Asylum, London Wedding | Tara + Mido

The Asylum, London Wedding | Tara + Mido

How incredible is The Asylum in London as a wedding venue? It’s basically a photographer’s dream. So of course I was super excited to return and see what I could come up with for Tara and Mido’s wedding. They loved Gemma and Guy‘s photos and I was hoping this would be another rock n roll adventure. I met Tara and her bridal squad over at The Zetter Town House where Louise Seymour was beautifying everyone. When we arrived at The Asylum, it was beautifully lit with candles and the ceremony began with a string quartet playing a Spiritualized song.

There were performances by Robert from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and James from Temples, I did mention this was quite the rock n roll wedding, didn’t I? … There was even a Kaiser Chief thrown in as a best man! For the main reception, we all relocated to the very gorgeous Brunswick House. Despite living in New York and being super busy with work, Tara and Mido planned an incredible wedding and this pair were absolutely made for each other… Their Instagram is full of date nights. To see the full breakdown of their day head over to their feature on Rock n Roll bride.


Though I know I’ll never lose AFFECTION FOR PEOPLE and things that went before, I know I’ll often stop and think about them. In my life I love you more …


That One Time When Crown & Glory Had a Festival Wedding …

That One Time When Crown & Glory Had a Festival Wedding …

You know I’ve been in this game for quite a while now, I’ve literally been to hundreds and hundreds of weddings in every corner of the UK. But this festival style wedding will forever be one of my all time favourites. Yes the Bride and Groom (Sophie and Gareth from Crown and Glory) are my friends and it’s always super special to be the photographer for someone you know; Yes I’d actually made it to Sophie’s wonderful hen party back in the summer and yes some of my close friends were also at this wedding. But above all of that, what made this wedding truly special was the couple. Sophie and Gareth know how to throw a helluva party, that’s for sure but what you might not see in these photos is just how much effort they made to ensure that all their guests had an utterly brilliant time. Right from the moment we all gathered in this wonderful place in Deepest Darkest Wales, the good times really rolled.

When I got to my room, I found an incredible welcome package including a bespoke flower crown that perfectly matched my skirt. Later on, I looked around the room as I shot the speeches and saw a sea of gorgeous flower crowns all perfectly matched to outfits and it dawned on me that Sophie has asked me what was I wearing weeks before.. ahhhhhh! See it’s that level of kindness that made us guests feel so much warmth and love from the newlyweds. Their generosity dripped out of every corner of this wedding and I left feeling like my joy tank had been refilled. Looking at the images again reminds me of so many fun moments. Now if this wedding is looking a little familiar then that might be because it is featured in the current issue of Rock n Roll Bride Magazine. Sophie is starring on the cover like the Goddess that she is.. well when your Maid of Honour is editor of a bridal magazine, it kind of HAD to happen, right?


a backless dress and some beat up sneaks, my discotheque Juliet TEENAGE DREAM, I felt it in my chest as she looked at me, I knew we were bound to be together …

Rainbow Wedding Editorial | Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Rainbow Wedding Editorial | Rock n Roll Bride Magazine

Could we do a Rainbow Coloured Wedding Shoot but make it sophisticated? This was the challenge that we set ourselves for an editorial with Rock n Roll Bride magazine. So we gathered up a load of wigs from Annabelle’s, some very gorgeous coloured dresses, a bunch of giant balloons and headed to the studio.

I pictured a rainbow, you held it in your hands. I HAD FLASHES but you saw the plan. I wandered out in the world for years but you just stayed in your room …

Burgh House, London Wedding | Emma + Roxy

Burgh House, London Wedding | Emma + Roxy

Emma and Roxy held their wedding ceremony at Burgh House in London followed by a reception at nearby pub The Stag. It was such a delightful day to be involved in, so well planned and laid back. This pair know how to throw a party and they brought together friends and family from literally all over the planet for this day. How gorgeous do they look in outfits that they both chose from House of Ollichon but kept secret until the day?

 

At one point in this wedding, a slightly unusual feeling came over me. You know when they have speeches where everyone is invited up to speak if they want to? I found myself wanting to put my hand up to say a few words, I know weird right? But it was because this couple made me feel like I was also an old friend of theirs, they are that warm and inclusive! I loved spending their wedding day with them and continue to merrily stalk them both on Instagram.


This will be the day That you will hear me say That I will never run away. I am here for you Love is MEANT FOR TWO Now tell me what u’re gonna do …
