Winter weddings – they can be challenging for photos. Even if you don’t mind the cold, it gets dark so early that unless you have your portraits early in the day or you have your ceremony by 1pm at the latest, then chances are that you will be having your wedding photos after dark. I don’t mind having to think creatively about where to shoot. Take this sweet, intimate winter elopement with Lewina and Carwen. They kept everything nice and easy, got ready together at home, called an Uber and married in their local registry office in London. When it came to their portraits, they thought that a local church might work as it would be lit up. To me it seemed a little weird as they hadn’t got married there. Then I saw some golden arches and you know those fast food places are always lit up as bright as day!? So we popped in for a McFlurry and took some photos. The McDonalds was packed but nobody seemed to think it too weird that a bride and groom rolled in.

You were sorta punk rock, I grew up on hip hop, but you fit me better than my favourite sweater …
