West London wedding photography – a purple themed wedding at Royal Berkshire Hotel, featuring butterflies, natural contemporary portraits and a Photo booth…

The doors opened to a house filled with people, all of them in a wonderful mood and ready for this stormy morning to slowly break in to a sunny day – and become one of the most important days in Luke and Emma’s lives. Suddenly I just felt such a thrill about capturing this wedding. Smiles and enthusiasm where just everywhere, and I felt like – actually I could just keep photographing til the next day really.:)

The ceremony was held at the very same church where Emma’s own parents had got married many years ago! At the beautiful Saint Bartholomews church in Nettlebed.

Then we all hit the road for their countryside reception at Royal Berkshire Hotel just outside Ascot. Emma and Luke had some really beautiful decor and theme arranged for their day – the cake was almost like a little fairytale, and the Photo booth was a real hit. And I know that this will be hard to believe – but even the sun came out to join the party!

I thought their idea was fantastic… to bring Emma’s parent’s wedding portrait from the very same church and recreate it! And it’s quite amazing to see how some things have changed and some things have kept exactly the same through time…

London wedding photographer Chelsea – Kings Road Town hall and Marriott Hotel in Grosvenor Square… with a romantic surprise!

In the run up for the queen’s recent jubilee and blessed with beautiful weather, Paul and Karen celebrated their big day in central London. As a photographer I had lots of emotions to capture as tears and chuckles kept chasing each other throughout their heartfelt ceremony. And as Karen thought that her day couldn’t get any better, Paul had a surprise for her.

The day started with picking up the groom from the Chelsea Potter pub and head to Chelsea town hall…

Karen was expecting to haul a cab to head for their reception at Mariott Hotel in Grosvenor Square. But Paul thought not.

He had secretly arranged with a completely different and by far more romantic transport…

Cute as a button – A button themed wedding from Hampshire, All Saints and Basingstoke Golf Club

A couple of Saturdays ago – yeah you all remember that Saturday when the sun came out and we had a day of amazing summer – on that Saturday I had the privilege to capture a wedding in the cutest little village outside Basingstoke. Helen and Michael are lucky to have a really sweet, small and very old church almost on their doorstep. Old Saints church in Dummer echoes with Medieval history, and really woke up my photography nerve!

After their ceremony and portraits, we headed for their reception at Basingstoke Golf Club, where the couple had arranged with the cutest, personal details around their function room. They had so many personal touches, but I just have to mention how much I loved their button theme, which followed from the bridal and bridesmaid – bouquets, that Helen had designed with a specialist company, on to the buttonholes and to their super- cool cupcakes.

Helen & Michael, here’s your pre view chapter…
