A couple of weeks ago I had the wonderful commission to shoot the bridal fashion show and marketing images for the organisers of Bluewater wedding fair. The wedding fair in Glow, Bluewater – featuring some of the most sought after wedding industry suppliers of the South East, was heaving with couples on the lookout for everything from bridal ware and rings, to cakes, photography, venues, transport, decor – and everything else that a couple might want to have for their day.

The spring bridal show in Glow offered a fantastic insight in to the 2013 bridal fashion, delivered with some really entertaining choreography. Jazzy, playful dance- inspired choreography that generated smiles from the crowd, was intervened with class and elegance – all choreographed by Vicki Jackson in conjunction with Xcite – perfectly portraying the current bridal trends of rich and vibrant colours, vintage details and dreamy textures.

About this season’s trends in bridal fashion:

” This season’s highlights include beautiful lace, short hemlines, jewel necklines and exciting developments in colour – whether rich and vibrant or more subdued, all kinds of hues are featured on the catwalks. While full and frothy skirts are still (and will always be) in fashion, more fitted and ladylike styles are also emerging in a style reminiscent of Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy. There is also lots of romance with dreamy textures, soft layering and vintage inspired details.”

Next Bluewater wedding fair and bridal fashion show in Glow: 20 – 22 September 2013

What do you give a person who looooves photographs – for an engagement gift…? How about an engagement shoot! Emma really loves photography, so her sister definitely got it right with this engagement present! As Emma shows me around their flat filled with photographs and we chat away about their pre wedding photography and their destination wedding in South of Europe, I realize what an honor it is to photograph a couple – when knowing that some of my images might end up inside the glass – top of a table or become part of a breakfast tray!

Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot around Chelsea…. And yes these are just a few. They where so easy to photograph – if they where nervous, I couldn’t tell – so it was a struggle to not choose them all!

(Oh and love those T – shirts!)

After exploring a couple of parks around Chelsea and Battersea, we headed to the area of South Kensington where they first met. And I’ve gotta say that the name of one of the side streets just couldn’t have been more fitting for a first meet!

The other week I met up for an engagement shoot with this gorgeous couple, who are getting ready for their Christmas wedding in South Africa. They wanted lots of fun shots for their wedding – invitation web site and had a list prepared with shots that they wanted – Loving it when I get a brief with lots of ideas for an engagement shoot. We had a really fun afternoon strolling around East London and Shoreditch, experimenting with different fun shots, creating images with photojournalism in the style around this grittier part of London…

This is a pretty neat idea hey… to involve a prop in the shoot, on to which the couple can add text in the computer!
