Love love loved shooting this wedding at Grittenham Barn in Sussex. Everything from start to finish was beautifully done with homemade bunting, vintage crockery, Grittenham Barn homegrown flowers, traditional ice cream van, slow roast pork, and to top it off gorgeous weather! Chris and Keri are absolutely lovely people, the speeches were incredibly touching and to see so much happiness and love everywhere was massively heartwarming! Not to mention the two resident donkeys with their respective pink and blue reigns. A gorgeous venue for a wedding and one I hope to go back to. Congratulations Chris and Keri, happy honeymooning!
There’s something extra special about photographing a civil partnership when the couple have been together for a long time, and for Paul and Michael they were celebrating 18 years of being together by tying the knot. Everyone celebrated on a hot summer’s day in south-east London at Devonport House – highlights included a short trip down to the Cutty Sark and a chocolate fountain loved by the little, and the not-so little people. Congratulations Paul and Michael, it was great to be a part of your special day. x
A stylish civil partnership wedding at the stunning Hatfield House in Hertfordshire. This was a lovely, lively and lavish day and Wendy and Claire couldn’t take the smiles off their faces! With half the contingent from Claire’s Irish roots, this was bound to be a good party and it was kick started by a surprise appearance from Riverdance dancers displaying their incredible talent. Congratulations Wendy and Claire, it was great to be a part of your day and I know I made friends in the two of you! x
I loved this civil partnership wedding and I felt honoured to be asked to photograph Sally and Lucy’s big day. The girls bring humour and style to everything they do, and this was evident on their special day. With talented friends singing, playing instruments and reading, two very welcoming and happy families saw their daughters register their civil partnership. To top it off, the tables were turned on the brides in the evening as over 100 guests broke out into a flash mob – old and young joined in choreographed dance moves (all learnt from a video posted on the web by the bridesmaids) to Electric Dreams. Sally and Lucy – your reactions will never be forgotten! Congratulations lovely ladies x
Congratulations to Anna and Saibh on their civil partnership wedding day. We had a beautiful day in Wapping-on Thames where Anna and Saibh, joined by their gorgeous sons George and Sasha, enjoyed an amazing party in a fabulous marquee. There was a lovely family atmosphere at this wedding and it was an absolute pleasure to be part of their day – one of the highlights being a great display of Irish dancing from the couple for their first dance! Thanks to Jane Ferguson for second shooting with me, and producing some gorgeous photos of the kids.
Another beautiful civil partnership wedding to photograph in Brighton with Karen and Nat – complete with a gorgeous cream Bentley! Congratulations to the happy couple. Here are a few images from the big day. More to follow…
This was a fantastic civil partnership wedding to photography on the beautiful Monkey Island Hotel, in Bray. Leon and Iain chose to get married at the stunning Windsor Guild Hall before travelling on a boat down the Thames to Bray. The sunny and warm autumnal day provided fantastic light for some lovely classic wedding shots at this idyllic wedding venue. Leon and Iain thought of everything for their special day and being the party people they are, the evening entertainment was nothing short of spectacular (including a performance by Diva Fever and featuring the UK’s largest glitter ball!). It was an incredible day and I wish Leon and Iain a happy and long future together.
A great civil partnership wedding to photograph in Brighton. Local weddings are always special as you know the venue and surrounding area so well. And there’s nowhere better than the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Michael and Richard included close friends and family for an intimate ceremony held by the aptly named Terry Love in one of George IV’s ornate rooms. The couple looked fantastic in their flamboyant gold jackets and respective pink and orange shirts, caps and socks. The occasion even drew in a photojournalist from Sweden. The Royal Pavilion gardens also provide a great backdrop for some classic Brighton shots. Congratulations Michael and Richard, all the best for a long and happy future together.
