Islington Town Hall Wedding – London Wedding Photographer

Hugh & Katie’s Islington Town Hall Wedding was a quaint and beautiful affair that I had the pleasure to photograph back in August.

The day started off at the infamous Islington Town Hall before heading to Camden Lock for the reception on a canal barge. It was such a wonderful day and the unique setting of the canal barge made the day even more special for Hugh & Katie.

Hugh who is a Software Engineer and Katie, an editor, met at University in Bristol. Katie moved in with Hugh’s friends and started to listen to his show on the Student radio station. Love blossomed and a couple of years later, Hugh proposed at the same pub back in Bristol, that they have there first date.

“We wanted our wedding to be casual and for everyone to feel comfortable, which is why there was no dress code and the venues were quite informal”

They chose Islington Town Hall and My Fair Lady Canal boats, from the world famous Camden lock, as when they used to live in Islington they love walking from Islington Town Hall down to the canal having a long stroll down to their favourite local pub Craft Beer Co, and it was great choice as it was everything they wanted out of the venues.

“Jay was incredibly friendly and helpful throughout – making sure we weren’t too nervous and staying as long as he needed to capture the day. We’re so happy with the photographs, as were our guests. We would definitely recommend Jay to anyone”

I just loved the feeling of this Islington Town Hall wedding and everyone made me feel so welcome, plus with the sun shining it was a perfect Summer Wedding. Thank you to Hugh, Katie, & guests it was a pleasure to capture you at your Islington Town Hall Wedding.

London Maternity Portrait Photography – Sarah’s Battersea Park Maternity Shoot

At the time of writing this, Sarah has given birth to a beautiful baby girl called Genevieve. I want to send the biggest congratulations and I am so glad we got a chance to do your London Maternity Photography session and you received the images in time before your wonderful bundle of joy enter the world xxx

London Maternity Photography Shoot at Battersea Park with Sarah

It was such a pleasure to photograph Sarah for her London Maternity Photography session on a beautiful sunny day in Battersea Park South West London. With the River Thames running past the park with views of Chelsea Bridge to the East and Albert Bridge to the West, it is such a picturesque place to have a Photo Shoot. 

Sarah got in contact with me when she was 38 weeks, so it was literally a couple of weeks before her baby girl was due. We decided to meet by the Peace Pagoda next to the River, on a gorgeous summer day in May, where we could get stunning shots of Chelsea Embankment and the Bridges as backdrops. Also, the Peace Pagoda is such an iconic place in Battersea Park alongside the Zoo and bandstand that we had to get images with Sarah there.

The morning was gorgeous; the sun was shining with a cool breeze and it was just a perfect peaceful day for a London Maternity Photography session. We started out taking portraits next to the River changing the view from Chelsea Bridge, Albert Bridge and Chelsea Embankment. We then move a small garden with the Peace Pagoda in the background, before then moving to the Peace Pagoda itself.

We chatted quite a lot through the session, finding out that she had two other girls, move from USA 8 years ago with her husband and, also was in the middle of moving house!

We moved the session towards the centre of Battersea Park taking in the long grass and some of the other beauties in the park including Russell Page Garden.

After a quick outfit change we went to the famous Bandstand for a few iconic images and then finally ending the session next to the Fountains (which decided to stop when we wanted them in the background)

It was such a pleasurable photoshoot and look forward to doing more of these sessions in the future.

Below is some of my favourite images from Sarah’s London Maternity Photography session.

Fine Art & Contemporary Wedding Photography – My Lake District Trip

Beautiful scenery of The Lake District from my iPhone 6S

So a couple of weekends ago, if you don’t know, I made my first ever trip to The Lake District. I was there to photograph a wedding of Claire & JJ with one of the most talented wedding photographer of his generation, Alex Beckett of Alex Beckett Photography. If you haven’t checked his work out yet, make sure you do after looking at mine 😉

Anyway, enough about Alex, back to my trip to gorgeous county of Cumbria.

I cannot speak enough about how amazing this part of the country is;  the stunning rolling hills, the beautiful lakes and the peaceful way of life was just breathtaking and something I hope my personal and work life will take me back in the near future.

I thought I would share some of my images I took on my phone of the scenery and hopefully I will share some of my images from the wedding.

Enjoy

Game of Thrones Bridal Shoot

Winter might not be coming, but this Bridal Shoot will get you in the mood for the new series of Game of Thrones

Depending on how much you are fan of Game of Thrones you have only have wait a few hours or just under 24 hours before watching the most anticipated new series of this thrilling TV Show. The HBO series has everything that makes it one of the best shows made for TV, in my mind and quite a few others, I believe.

So it was fitting that the very popular wedding blog, “Want That Wedding”, decided to share a Bridal shoot that I was honoured to plan and photographed last summer. I won’t go into too much details as Sonia Collett from Want That Wedding wrote up a great piece, and you can also read what Erin Balfour the styling co-ordinator & joint planner of this Bridal shoot and myself had to say about planning it.

Please click on the link, even if you are not a Game of Thrones fan, because you will love it. From the stunning dresses provided by Heart Aflutter Bridal, the amazing creative hair styling from Love Hair by Louise to the breathtaking cake from French made. All this set-up in the spectacular venue of Blackfriars in Gloucester.

 

Just a few images from the day, but more on the blog from Want That Wedding.
