Dartmouth House Wedding – London Wedding Photographer

 Dartmouth House Wedding – Tina & Martin London Wedding

Tina & Martin’s Dartmouth House Wedding in the middle of Mayfair London, was an gorgeous affair from start to finish.

From the getting ready on Kings Road, Chelsea; the ceremony at Our Most Holy Redeemer & St. Thomas More Church, Chelsea; the ice-cream reception at a small little garden on Chelsea Embankment with a Taxi converted into a Ice-cream Van; the old Routemaster,  which ferried all the guest to Dartmouth House, Mayfair; then finally partying and sparklers the night away.

The day started for myself and my 2nd Photographer, Laura Martha, on the Kings Road, Chelsea with Tina getting ready with her ladies whilst Martin was a few streets away with his boys.

It was such a beautiful sunny morning and perfect light to capture Mel Kinsman, Make Up Extraordinaire, & Laura Anne create magic on the Hair for the bride and her bridesmaids. At the boys house, it was all about getting ready leisurely watching a bit of Australia Rules Football.

The ceremony took place at Our Most Holy Redeemer & St. Thomas More Church in Chelsea, which is a stunning church located between the stylish Kings Road and Chelsea Embankment on the River Thames.

With the magnificent backdrop of the church interior, with its grand pillars and stain glass windows, the Dartmouth House Wedding of Tina & Martin was going to be a wonderful affair.

After the ceremony, the wedding party walked to a small little garden next to Chelsea Embankment where a few group shots were taken, whilst The Ice Cream Cab served Ice cream from the top of the taxi.

Once the all ice-cream was eaten and the group photos taken, it was a hop onto the London Routemaster for the guest whilst Tina & Martin took a traditional London taxi to there Dartmouth House Wedding.

Arriving at Dartmouth House, Mayfair the guest were treated to an champagne reception before invited to seat down for 3 course wedding breakfast. During the meal we were entertained by speeches from Tina’s brother & Sister, Martin & finally one of the Best Men.

After the cake-cutting and partying, the wonderful day was ended with a sparklers send off for the couple.

It was such a wonderful day and wish Tina & Martin all the happiness in the world

Cody’s Bump to Baby – 14 weeks; The first shoot of the series.

It is such a pleasure to be able to offer Fine Art Maternity Photography and capture such a precious time in a woman’s life

I was very excited when I was approach by Cody to shoot her at different stages of her maternity. We scheduled the first of our Bump to Baby photo shoots together when Cody was 14 weeks. We felt this was good time as Cody’s bump was just started to show.

We decided to shoot at her beautiful flat that she shares with her husband near the beautiful Holland Park in London. It was a great choice as the weather on the 1st Day of February was amazing, it was a bright sunny afternoon which bask the flat with wonderful natural light, which fitted so well in the nature of the shoot.

Enjoy the images and look out for the next instalment coming sooner than you think…

Fulham Palace Editorial Photo Shoot

Fulham Palace Editorial Photo Shoot for To Have & To Hold Wedding Magazine

 

Aside from me being a Surrey Wedding & Portrait Photographer, I also love to do a lot of commercial work within the Wedding Industry in London and other areas.

After shooting The Luxury Wedding Show at the stunning Fulham Palace, I was approached by To Have & To Hold wedding magazine to shoot an editorial for their bi-monthly magazine, again at Fulham Palace.

The shoot was scheduled for a beautiful autumn day and we weren’t  disappointed. Even though it did rain a bit, it stopped in time for us to shoot in the wonderful courtyard.

I met up with Bridal Dress collection, Bellanovia who provided some of the most stunning dresses I have ever seen, and the exceptional Hair & Make up artist Sairah-J, who also a Henna artist.

Fulham Palace was great and allowed us the use of most of the majestic venue.  It was truly awe inspiring. I am sure that as a wedding venue, this place would just be jaw-dropping.

The theme of the shoot was about showcasing the beauty of the dresses, the spectacular Fulham Palace with it period features, the amazing attention to detail of Sairah J’s makeup,  in my style of Fine Art photography. And that is why Katie from To Have & To Hold contacted me for this particular shoot knowing that my mixture of stylish portraiture and  irresistible eye for details would complement everything on this shoot.

I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone at Fulham Palace, ‘To Have & To Hold’ magazine, Bellanovia Bridal Collection and Sairah-J, Hair & make-up Artist. This Fulham Palace Editorial Photo Shoot, It was a great success.
