Here comes a small, intimate wedding with lots to capture and featuring an editorial portrait session…. Imtiaz and Dorota decided to spoil them selves with two photographers on their day – with an extra long portrait session before their ceremony – a so called “First look” shoot. After capturing some of Dorota’s last touches, we went for a long walk in Holland Park before heading to Kensington and Chelsea register office. Dorota’s wishes for more experimental photography, left her and Imtiaz with experimental colour tints, together with photographs in classical black and white and more natural colours. Here are some shots that I took on their day…

There was something very striking and at the same time so natural about Dorota. She didn’t at all pose for these two shots – in fact she never really posed at all. In these two shots, she thought that she was waiting for me to set the camera up… but really my camera had already snapped up how she was blending in and becoming a part of the painting behind her.

Not everybody gets to celebrate their wedding twice.

Yeing – Lang and Roger decided to have an extra wedding reception a la chinese style, a month after their traditional western wedding. Friends and family of the bride flew in from the far east, to participate in a dinner reception at China Boulevard in Wandsworth, a large restaurant renowned for hosting Chinese wedding. Since they where technically already married, this was more of a dinner function – with a traditional chinese tea ceremony to bless their marriage!on, wedding photographer

 The China Boulevard restaurant even hosts a little dressing room where the bride can get changed on the day. Traditionally, the chinese bride wear three different dresses throughout the day, so a dressing room on the actual premisses comes in really handy!
