Saturday was simply a dream for a documentary wedding photographer! Sophie + James tied the knot at a beautiful local church and then partied the day and night away just a stone’s throw away in a marquee in the field next door. Not only are my couple gorgeous both inside and out, they were surrounded by so much love and joy from their friends and family… oh gawd, pass me the tissues again!! The day ran like clockwork thanks to awesome event planners Peri Peri, some of the most adorable children I’ve ever met increased all the smiles tenfold, the family dog attended and all in all it was a bloody good day! Here are some of my favourite moments… Enjoy!
Surrounded by family, friends, orange, pink and purple, Rachael + Louise tied the knot at The Barn at Redcoats on Saturday with a beautiful wedding ceremony and one heck of a party! As their documentary wedding photographer I was there to capture all the emotion, the fun and laughter… and let me tell you, there was a lot! Ooodles of giggles and grins had me smiling from ear to ear too – a definite perk of the job! Shooting lesbian wedding photography is a pleasure and a privilege and if I can help you (dear blog reader!) celebrate your love and make some awesome memories please do get in touch. To The Smirths, the hugest of congratulations to you both, here is just a snippet of your amazing wedding day and I wish you (and know you will have) a lifetime of happiness together xx
My goodness, it is such a privilege to shoot weddings! My clients are looking for relaxed, natural and unobtrusive wedding photography and one of my favourite styles of wedding to shoot are small, personal celebrations. Like this one when Caroline + James tied the knot in September at a beautiful Essex church and with an awesome party in their own back garden. They wanted intimate Essex wedding photography for their midweek wedding and I loved every minute I spent with them all. The styling was all down to the extremely talented Samantha Latham and I cannot wait to shoot one of her weddings again… so beautiful! Shout out to the beautiful cake from Avec Amis too 🙂 Caroline + James, I wish you a lifetime of happiness together. Lots of love, Elyse xx
Wowee, what a wedding day! Full of fun, family and friends, Anna + Jamie celebrated their marriage with a superb celebration at Rudding Park Hotel in Harrogate. They knew they wanted a documentary wedding photographer so they could relax and enjoy the day making real, amazing memories with all of their loved ones. Oh gawd, I’m tearing up just thinking about it!!! Here’s a little of what we all got up to…
Oooh I loved re-living this amazing wedding choosing my favourites for this blog post!! I have known Matt and Claire for many years and helping them make these wonderful memories was super-fun!! My lovely bride and groom were happy for me to do my natural, relaxed, documentary thang. They chose a dream venue for a barn wedding photographer – the beautiful Hazel Gap Barn. A light-drenched wedding breakfast room, forest and fields for epic bride and groom portraits, enough dance and seating space for all your guest’s needs! Perfection 🙂
Jack + Jean celebrated 60 amazing years of marriage aboard the awesome HQS Wellington on the River Thames surrounded by family, friends, water and a whole lotta love! There were certainly more images in their final gallery from this celebration than the one 60 years ago and it was my absolute privilege to be their anniversary party photographer. Here are some of my favourite shots from their special celebration!
When Caroline + Alan got in touch about Hampton Court House wedding photography, I got EXCITED! This venue is so beautiful – the perfect mixture of gorgeous grounds and beautiful architecture – stunning high ceilings and huge windows in the ceremony space, the opulent dining hall for a wonderful wedding breakfast feast and an amazing conservatory just perfect for dancing the night away! I met my bride and groom for a pre-wedding shoot in Borough Market and it made me so excited to see them again on their big day. Caroline got ready at the beautiful Petersham Hotel in Richmond before hot-footing it to Hampton Court House where Alan waited to tie the knot! Surrounded by family and friends and with some gorgeous sunshine to top things off nicely it was a day to remember always. Here are a few highlights from their awesome wedding day.
Adam + David got in touch looking for photography of their awesome same sex Jewish wedding at the beautiful Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green. And it was WONDERFUL! A day full of love, laughter and celebration to welcome the newlyweds into married life. From our morning stroll through Victoria Park to their gorgeous Chuppah service officiated by the awesome Rabbi Miriam Berger to the amazing speeches and finally the EPIC party, the day was an absolute dream for a gay wedding photographer. Here is a flavour of their wedding day in all it’s glory. Lots of love, guys, wishing you a lifetime of happiness, laughter and fun!!
Last year I got to shoot something pretty spectacular when Emily + Alex tied the knot in an incredible celebration on the beautiful island of Capri, Italy. WOW! Having worked with Emily in the past I was overjoyed to be trusted with her special day and asked to cover the wedding photography at the wonderful celebration she was planning. Firstly, the setting could not have been more stunning and the bride and groom matched it perfectly. Gorgeous people inside and out, it was an absolute pleasure to join them, their loving family and friends for their incredible wedding and my relaxed, documentary way, allowing the day to unfold and capturing all the fun, exactly as it happened. Take a peek at some of my favourites from this awesome day! xx
It was a very Good Friday for my lovely bride and groom Caroline + Charlie when they tied the knot at wedding venue Gaynes Park last year. Sharing in such special days as a wedding photographer is immense at the best of times but having shot weddings for Caroline’s two awesome sisters too, this one was even more awesome! A day full of sunshine and laughter, giggles, amazing speeches, hilarious kiddy-winks and dancing galore, the new Mr and Mrs Noakes celebrated their nuptials in the best way possible – surrounded by love and laughter. Wishing you the most wonderful future together. Just need to persuade their brother to hire me too when he ties the knot…!
