Creative, Neon, Garden and Geodome Wedding

Creative, Neon, Garden and Geodome Wedding

This super creative, neon wedding, included a ceremony held outdoors in the groom’s parents’ garden and the wedding reception in a huge Geodome. When they first got in touch, Jeny and Greg described it as “We are getting married at Greg’s parents amazing Shropshire castle/house. We have a geodome and lots of disco balls and are getting married in their garden. We love colour and design.” Well, they had me at disco balls! The venue was utterly incredible, Jeny got ready inside the castle/house with her gorgeous bridesmaids all dressing in sequin frocks, while Greg oversaw the finishing touches to all the decor that they had produced themselves. Check out the insane glitter chandeliers made from hula hoops. It all looked wonderful but my favourite moment was Jeny solo strutting down the aisle in her stunning, bright pink Oscar De La Renta wedding dress from Harrods Wedding Boutique . What a wedding!

Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think. Enjoy yourself while you’re still IN THE PINK. The years go by as quickly as you wink, enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think …

Ace Hotel London Wedding Shoot

Ace Hotel London Wedding Shoot

This wedding shoot in East London’s stunning Ace Hotel was for the gorgeous Rock n Roll Bride Magazine. The idea was to explore second wedding day outfits or Bridal Layers might be another way of describing it. You know that we can’t predict the weather on any given day here in the UK so having something to put on or take off depending on how it goes is a terrific idea no matter what time of year that your wedding is. Or maybe just because you want a different look for the evening, adding more sparkle and glamour. So we thought customised jackets, snuggly but still bridal jumpers, and just for the hell of it, a jacket made from foil tassels.

With the words from A POET and the voice from a choir and a melody, nothing else mattered …

Victoria Stakes Pub Wedding in Muswell Hill

Victoria Stakes Pub Wedding in Muswell Hill

The lovely Charlotte and Simon married on the hottest day of the year at the Victoria Stakes Pub in London’s Muswell Hill. So this is a funny story, I first met this pair when they modeled for me on a Photography Farm workshop. We did an engagement shoot for them in Borough Market but at the time, they were not yet engaged. Fast forward a few years and Charlotte had relocated down from her native Glasgow to live with Simon in London and he proposed by Niagara Falls. When they started planning the wedding, they got back in touch and booked me to shoot it. So I did a proper engagement shoot for them and then had a heck of a lot of fun shooting their wonderful London Pub Wedding.

We traveled in style to the ceremony in a 1920s Rolls Royce but of course, it had no air conditioning and the windows didn’t wind down so we were super glad to get out and catch a little breeze up at Alexandra Palace. We stopped off there before their wedding and took some photos in the grounds just because it is one of their very favourite places. To round off a glorious day, Charlotte and her Dad got the dance floor going and when we slipped away, everyone was having a mighty party – with ALL the pub windows open.

Oh, believe me, if all those endearing young charms that I gaze on so fondly today were to suddenly leave you or fly off in the night just like FAIRY GIFTS gone in the sky …

Wedding at Cowdray House in Sussex

Wedding at Cowdray House in Sussex

Cowdray House in Sussex has to be one of the grandest wedding venues local to me. It is one of those gorgeous country house venues that you can take over for the entire weekend. So arrive on a Friday evening, have a lovely dinner with your nearest and dearest, then have a leisurely morning getting ready for your big day. It means that weddings there tend to be very relaxed but luxe, so I love shooting them. Mo and Nick had such a beautiful wedding, focused on family and friends with lots of lovely touches like a pop-up cocktail bar and boxes of cigars.

If you were standing right in front of me, I’ll finally see what it means to be complete. Don’t need to spend our lives CHASING GOLD, anywhere with you, I’ll call my home …

Micro Wedding in Brighton

Micro Wedding in Brighton

For their small, micro wedding in Brighton, Amanda and Humberto chose to meet at the Town Hall and walk into their ceremony together. With just very close family and friends attending, it was a perfectly intimate and joyful wedding day. After confetti and a few group photos outside the registry office, we took a taxi to some locations for a photoshoot. It was super fun and when we were done, we joined their guests at The Salt Room for champagne and cake. Then as they served dinner, my short coverage was finished.

I love you Sunday sun, the week’s not yet begun and everything is quiet and it’s always YOU AND ME always and forever …

Chiddingstone Castle Wedding Shoot – Part Two

Chiddingstone Castle Wedding Shoot – Part Two

The glorious Chiddingstone Castle, a wedding venue in Kent, graciously opened its doors to Photography Farm so that we could host one of our Shoot Days there. These are portfolio building opportunities for wedding photographers. We provide gorgeous styling plus professional models and all the attendees have to do is turn up ready to shoot.

For this one at Chiddingstone Castle, we had an incredible team headed by the wonderful Rebecca Carpenter who also guided groups alongside he brilliant wedding videographer Nick Rix and myself. Rebecca also came up with the theme and styled the models. This meant that for once, I actually had time to shoot and I bloody loved it. The models are real couple The Oromés who absolutely nailed it, see the full list of very brilliant suppliers down below, as well as Nick’s amazing video from the entire day …
