South Farm wedding photographer

When you saw the title of this blog you were probably expecting to see a crazy couple on a muddy farm. However, this venue is literally the opposite of that. My couple Georgia and Charlie had great taste choosing to have their wedding at South Farm. It’s a romantic and picturesque location in Cambridgeshire. I would recommend South Farm to a couple hoping for an intimate wedding. You will see why!

This wedding excited me particularly because Georgia the lovely bride had contacted me prior to the wedding. This was before they had even chosen a date or specific venue. When I was asked to be her wedding photographer at South Farm, I knew that this wedding would be special. That place is literally an ideallic location for a South Farm wedding photographer like me.

Wedding at South Farm

The prep for this gorgeous wedding at South Farm was super fun and so chilled. Georgia is lucky enough to have amazing friends who made everything run smoothly for her. Her friend even gave her a lovely custom made denim jacket from Rhubarb&Co. If you are looking for gift inspiration you should definitely check them out. On the subject of gift-giving Georgia thoughtfully gave personalised gifts to her mum and mother in law. This included a “no ugly crying” hanky which I’m sure was very much appreciated.

Personal touches at a wedding are so important. I know some of you brides-to-be will be dying to know where Georgia’s flower bouquet was from. It was done by Becky from Feather and Ferns and she did an amazing job. All of the flower decorations were so colourful and modern looking.

Whilst there are a lot of things you can control about your wedding, the weather is one thing you simply can’t. Luckily for Georgia and Charlie, there wasn’t a single drop of rain. This enabled them to have their ceremony in the gorgeous Summer House at South Farm. This quirky couple's ceremony consisted of multiple readings and even a song from Lord of the rings. I loved this idea.

As for the photos they had absolutely mastered all of the signature poses. They created a beautiful set of wedding portraits in what seemed like the blink of an eye. When I first met Georgia she mentioned having smoke grenades, and in true bridal fashion, she got her way. They went for yellow smoke grenades which looked insane in photos and literally kept me on my toes.

When the time came for the first dance, all of the guests were fired up and ready to release their energy. They all cracked out their best moves to some great hits put together by the DJ. I feel honoured to be a part of all of the weddings I photograph. This one, in particular, was so memorable for me and I couldn’t imagine spending my time doing anything else that day.
Also, I was definitely able to enjoy it more than usual which is a rare treat for me. My two good friends Robert and Ola from Kubicki took care of all the video prep for me. It was great to see you guys.

I hope some of you found some wedding inspiration on this blog. If you are looking for the South farm wedding photographer to cater to your specific needs look no further. Please do not hesitate to enquire for dates in 2020/2021. I look forward to documenting more of your miracle moments.

Bistrotheque - Same sex wedding photographer

Same sex wedding photographer

By the title of this blog, I’m sure you would have guessed that I covered a gorgeous same sex wedding. The UK has only had same sex marriage since 2014, and it is of great importance to me to be a wedding photographer for everyone and every couple. All of the couples I shoot deserve the utmost happiness.

At the beginning of the day, my couple, Dan and Tom both got ready together. Casting aside usual tradition I was able to get some amazing photos of them preparing for their special day together. I thought this was a great idea and I hope they will cherish these memories for years to come. Both Dan and Thomas looked so stylish on their wedding day, they definitely weren’t in danger of being upstaged! The ceremony took place at another one of London’s hidden gems Bistrotheque. The overall feel of the venue was contemporary and gave a light atmosphere. As same sex wedding photographer would definitely recommend Bistroheque as a wedding venue.

Wedding at Bistrotheque

The ceremony was lovingly conducted by a close friend of the grooms. This added that special touch everyone looks for at their wedding. It was personal and she gave great insight into who they are as individuals, as well as a couple. As you all know by now your wedding is your time to shine. Tom mentioned to me that he didn’t know how to pose, he was definitely bluffing. Five minutes later he rocked the photoshoot with Dan they honestly looked great together. The speeches were super emotional especially the one by Toms best man who hired him a male stripper. How could you possibly have a stag without one! It was also touching when Tom proposed to Dan so that he could experience how it felt. Of course, Tom said yes and everyone loved it. Once the formalities were over with the true fun began, that dance floor was explosive. The guests were raving and the grooms were dancing like crazy literally having the time of their lives. However the piece de resistance was when the drag queen came to perform, it was magical. Also funnily enough everyone loved my floral shirt which was an added bonus.

I hope some of you found some wedding inspiration on this blog. If you are looking for the same sex wedding photographer to cater to your specific needs look no further. Please do not hesitate to enquire for dates in 2020/2021. I look forward to documenting more of your miracle moments.

Wedding photographer Reading

Penta Hotel - Wedding Photographer Reading

Wedding Photographer Reading

Festival hotspot Reading is a popular location in the south of England. A charismatic choice from my couple Ligia and Jose. I have known Ligia for a couple of years now. I was honored when she and her groom asked me to be their wedding photographer. We had been talking about the wedding for a long time and the special day finally came. It just shows that you can have what you want if you plan and work towards it. I and the groom Jose also clicked instantly. Perhaps it was fate that we realized our mutual love for old-school RPG games, card games, and fantasy books. My adventurous couple ditched usual tradition and got ready for the wedding together. I was able to capture some really great moments for them both. These moments can now be cherished forever. Ligia and Jose were initially preparing for bad weather after looking at the forecast. The Lord himself must have had other plans because the weather was fantastic all day. One unique thing about this wedding was the fact that Jose's best friend Thomasz, actually designed the brides dress. The creativity of it really blew my mind, it was amazing and looked great on camera too.

Wedding at Penta Hotel

The ceremony and reception took place at the Penta Hotel in Reading. All of the guests were super friendly and made me feel so very comfortable. The hotel also doubled up as a great spot for a photo shoot with the bride and groom. Luckily for them, this won't be the end of the celebrations for this couple. These lovebirds are having two more wedding ceremonies in Spain and Poland so stay tuned. What a wedding at Penta Hotel it was.

Outstanding wedding at Chelsea Old Town Hall

Wedding at Chelsea Old Town Hall

Out of all the places I visit often, Chelsea old town hall is one of my favorite registry offices. I love the atmosphere there its cool and mellow, almost adapting to the needs of different couples. My bride and groom Nelli and Christopher certainly kept their cool and did not stress once on their wedding at Chelsea Old Town Hall. I actually met this couple two years ago at a wedding I was working on, its always a great thing seeing familiar faces. Especially ones that smile the whole time.

Wedding reception at Cross Keys Pub

Cross Keys Pub is actually a great choice of wedding venue. If you are looking for amazing vintage interior and fantastic food at your venue this is the place for you. I am sure the photos will speak for themselves. I must also add that the staff there were very friendly and the service was great keeping the guests happy. This may seem like a small thing, however, attention to details such as these will take a lot of pressure off on your big day.

Nelli and Christopher looked perfect together on their special day and they definitely knew it. They did not let the weather stop them from rocking their photo shoot on the streets on London. One thing you cannot control on your big day is the weather, the key to a successful photo shoot on your day is to embrace every moment.

I hope that some of the tips I have given can inspire more great ideas for me to capture. I would love to write about more of your unique stories. For dates in 2019/2020 please enquire. I look forward to hearing from you.

If you are planning a wedding you may be considering London as a location and its easy to see why. My couple Rita and Eglis hosted their wedding in Islington town hall greater London. I felt honoured to play a part in their special day. As we all know the weather in London can be temperamental. December is typically winter time, however, the sun was out and shining for Rita and Eglis.

Winter wedding in London

Rita got ready with her friends and her mother, I was able to get some lovely snaps of them together. She was also very self-sufficient and did her hair and makeup all by herself. Not many brides are brave enough to so a lot of respect to her. The ceremony was held at Islington town hall which is a really beautiful venue for those interested, its actually one of my favourite venues. After the ceremony, the wedding party all took cabs to Central London. My lovely couple understandably wanted photos in Trafalgar square by the Christmas tree.

They both looked amazing in the night with all the lights around them. From there to the hired venue was a short walk. It was a great idea because we were able even to have a quick photoshoot during the walk. I got some amazing shots in the middle of a busy street with fabulous lights. My couple along with their family and friends looked so happy it was infectious. This was my last wedding of 2018 and we definitely ended it with a bang!

Wedding at Pembroke Lodge 3

Wedding at Pembroke Lodge

Pembroke Lodge is obviously a popular choice of wedding venue. I say this as I am lucky enough to have this location already featured on my blog. Getting another chance to be a Pembroke Lodge wedding photographer was one that I could not resist. My couple Erina and Kosuke clearly have great taste. These wonderful couples engagement photos at Greenwich are also already featured on my blog so be sure to take a look.

Erina and Kosuke's wedding at Pembroke Lodge was beautifully intimate, they were surrounded by close friends and family. This lucky couple is also going to have a second ceremony in Japan so this was considered as their first wedding. It has been an honor to be such a big part of some of their most precious moments. The gorgeous bride Erina prepared herself for the wedding at the venue. I was especially impressed as she did everything all by herself and managed to look like a princess. Kosuke also looked admirably sharp and dapper on his day along with his groomsmen. I was able to get some awesome photos of them both individually, and together they looked perfect.

I would highly recommend Pembroke lodge as a wedding venue, the photos are always stunning every time. After the ceremony, there was live music, which was a lovely touch played by Barbara the violinist. Also, we were able to get some photos in the rose garden next to the venue it was magical. In the evening the whole wedding party headed to central London. Erina and Kosuke hired a pub which gave the whole wedding party a chance to let loose and enjoy a good pint. The atmosphere was joyous and it was truly a special day. I was even cheeky enough to ask my couple for some more time. I was able to get some snaps of them both in the city, it was a great idea as you will see.

My couple Irene and Jorrit finally tied the knot and I’ve been happy to be part of it all. They had a gorgeous wedding ceremony in Madrid which is a wonderful location choice. The stylish bride and groom were getting ready quite close to each-other which not a lot of couples do. Although it's not traditional I was able to take photos of both of them getting ready which was special. The groom prepared for the wedding in a stunning apartment with a panoramic view of Madrid which was breathtaking. Irene also got ready in the most amazing hotel I’ve ever been to. If you love the sun these types of location are perfect for you. The weather blessed their day with heat and amazing lighting.

I talk about beauty a lot because it's something that I can always appreciate. The wedding photos in Madrid were amazing because of the location choice for the ceremony. My couples wedding ceremony and reception were hosted at Monasterio De San Bartolome de Lupiana. I will not joke this is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. Words cannot describe how outstanding this location is so I’m sure the pictures will do the talking. The view was one of the best parts it was a superb location for a ceremony and I would highly recommend it. The wedding photos in Madrid were truly stunning. The day was filled with a lot of emotion which definitely adds an element of sentiment to my work.

The most memorable part was when the gorgeous bride passed her bouquet to her sister. She started getting overwhelmed with tears of happiness, it moved me. My couple sure knew how to throw a shindig and with all the small details meticulously taken care of everyone had a fabulous time, including me. I love it when everyone throws themselves onto the dance-floor and this wedding in Madrid was no exception.

Wedding Photographer Sweden - Destination Swedish Wedding

Wedding Photographer Sweden

As you all know weddings are not easy to plan and certainly not easy to pull off. I always appreciate it when small details are included to make the day special. My couple Janna and Marek have mixed backgrounds (Polish and Swedish). That's why it was a pleasure to travel and be their wedding photographer in Sweden.

My couple had both their wedding ceremony and reception at Glaskogens Camping located in Glava. This is the brides home village, one where everyone happened to know each other which was a great personal touch. Both the bride and groom prepared for their wedding in Glava which was special. It was my first time being a wedding photographer Sweden.   Everything that I experienced there was as I imagine about Sweden.

Destination Swedish Wedding

Glaskogens Camping is a gorgeous choice of location for those who want their special day graced by the beauty of nature. It is located on a nature reserve right next to a small lake which I loved. Small and intimate ceremony suited my couple perfectly. They both looked stunning and their day came together beautifully. The day very much emphasized the importance of family and I loved to see everybody so close to one another.  I loved how they made the most of their surroundings. They played outdoor games to keep the family entertained which was super fun to watch.

I managed to get some shots of Janna and Marek on the lake in a small boat. This gave the photos a romantic feel and they looked gorgeous together. Later that night the dancefloor went on FIRE as soon as families start to party. Best part starts after I leave my cameras. I felt like part of the family and join all the guests on the floor I hope to do another destination wedding in Sweden because it was truly gorgeous.

Gaynes Park Wedding Photographer

I believe that weddings have got so much more exciting over the years. Personally, I love the variety and I am honoured to be a Gaynes Park wedding photographer for the first time. It's always a pleasure to photograph couples who are truly in love. It was amazing that I could work shoulder to shoulder with my good friend and great photographer Marek. Matt and Henry also hired Robert and Ola, videographers who I have worked with previously which was nice. I was able to get some incredibly candid and special photos of the wedding preparation at Matts house. In the meantime, Marek was with Henry. This showed good organisation as they will both have great memories to look back on. Matt invited me to breakfast with his family which he specially prepared. This was a lovely personal touch and got me fuelled for the day ahead.

Gaynes Park located in Essex is a stunning park with amazing features. It is a perfect location to give your special day the wow factor. My couple Matt and Henry hosted their ceremony and reception here and you will see why. It was a privilege to be a Gaynes park wedding photographer for the day as it gave me unique photo opportunities. I would like to add that Matt and Henry looked so classy and happy together on their special day. As I mentioned this was my first Gaynes Park wedding, it was amazing. I hope to get the opportunity to shoot many more in the future. The wedding photos in Gaynes park came out beautifully. The atmosphere was so lively and high in spirit, the guests wasted no time rocking out on the dance floor. And I can't just forget to mention about fresh pizza served over the night. To conclude the wedding was gorgeous and very well put together. I'm sure my couple will take joy in looking back at all of the wonderful photos taken.
