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

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.

London & Surrey Wedding Photography – New Fine Art Wedding Albums from Folio

London &  Surrey Wedding Photography – Contemporary Fine Art Wedding Albums 

 

As a London & Surrey Wedding Photography business, one of the best things I love to do is create lasting memories. Memories that look and feel every time you take out a Fine Art album from it packaging.

A few weeks ago, I finally got delivery of my new sample albums from Folio. Folio make the finest Fine Art albums right here in the UK and are handcrafted at each stage of the process. Now, I have been toying with the idea of finding new wedding album suppliers for a few months and once the final wedding of 2016 was finished I decided it was time to invest in new samples and go with the popular company Folio. As a Fine Art Wedding supplier in London & Surrey, I wanted someone whose style fitted  into my brand and knew how important an investment of a wedding album is to a couple.

When I am speaking to couples about Fine Art Wedding Albums, I always explain the comparison between images on your screen to having them on print, and in my opinion their isn’t any. It is great having the ability to share with family and friends with a touch of a button on a computer, but seeing your images on fine paper in a leather or linen bound album is so magical and a special feeling.

Have a look at my recent video on my new wedding sample albums and if you would like to discuss more about ordering an album, then please contact me.

Cork Ireland Wedding Photography- Sophie & Will’s Ballnatray Estate Fine Art Wedding

Sophie & Will’s Ballnatray Estate, Cork Ireland Wedding

I’ve being thinking of words that best describe Sophie & Will’s Cork Ireland Wedding. But before I do that, I will begin with a massive thank you to Amaris & Chad who made up the #mrts team (I came up with that name). It was an amazing four days of shooting at Ballynatray Estate on the outskirts of Cork and Waterford in Ireland. The guests at the wedding were so surprised that we had never worked together and that the three of us literally lived thousand miles from each other. We just flowed; knew where each other were in terms of taking shots, trusted and knew that each person would capture everything that was special on the day.

But it was more than us three, it was about the Sophie & Will and the rest of the wedding party over those days. From Day 1 to the last day, it was all about making us feel welcome. It was all about sharing in the joyous occasion whilst doing our job, and that is why I always say that it is probably the best job in the world for me. I just love working with couples, families and friends like this.

So what about the wedding day? Well, it started early and ended very late!! But not for one minute did I mind. My day started with the Groom and his Groom’s men at the Wood Cottage, where it was a pleasantly chilled and relaxed time. I would like to say that was the theme of the day, but I would be lying. This was calm before the storm, and in a good way. We laughed, we cried, we laughed some more and just generally had an incredible time. And I am just talking about the wedding day.

I will let the images tell the rest of the story…

London Fine Art Engagement Photography – Millie & Steven’s Proposal

I love a marriage proposal shoot, but this one involved an undercover mission to rival any!  This London Fine Art Engagement Photography shoot for Millie & Steven’s Proposal contained everything as if  it was from a romantic, and dramatic movie. But this was the real deal.

It all started when Steven got in touch on the day that he was going to propose with this creative plan about how and where he wanted to propose to the beautiful Millie.

Steven & Millie, who love to travel,  write a letter to each other whilst on their journey about their traveling experiences. So the plan was that Steven was going to write a letter about London, but with a twist. In this letter, Steven was going to ask Millie for her hand is marriage.

Fast forward to the evening of the special day; it started with Steven taking Millie out for dinner,  whilst I had the important assignment of picking up the extra special letter from their hotel. I was to place the letter on the steps of the statue of Eros in Piccadilly Circus, Central London. As legends go, it is said that if you propose under the statue on the stroke of midnight, it would bring you eternal luck in your marriage. So there I was at 11:30, in the pouring rain (and I mean it was pouring), setting myself up in the right position so that I wouldn’t be noticed by Millie taking pictures of her and also keeping an eye on the letter so that no one would accidentally pick it up.

Around 11:50, not knowing what Steven or Millie looked like, I noticed a couple approach the theatre next to the statue and pointing at it. I quickly understood that this was the couple, when they started to walk towards, and pointing at, the letter. I moved back into my “tourist taking pictures of the Billboards'” position and started shooting away, firstly capturing Millie reading the letter and then… Well, I will let my images tell the rest of the story.

Despite the pouring rain, which I think added to the drama, it was a moment not to be missed. To see Steven go down on one knee and the reaction of Millie was amazing. Congrats Millie & Steven, you make a wonderful couple xxx

Surrey Fine Art Wedding – Sophie & Lee’s Leatherhead & West Horsley Wedding

What was it about Sophie & Lee’s Surrey Fine Art wedding that made it one of the most special I have photographed? I believe it was that from the first time I spoke to Sophie, she was all about the photos. When a couple come to me and they talk about how important their photographs are and how much they want captured, I know that we are going to be a perfect fit.

After the initial chat to discuss their wedding ceremony at The Mansion in Leatherhead, Surrey, and then their reception at a converted barn in the village of West Horsley, Surrey, we met up at Newland Corner, just outside Guildford, Surrey for their Engagement Shoot which you can have a look at here. As you can see from the post, we hit it off straight away.

It was an early start at Sophie & Lee’s home in the lovely little village of Bramley, near Guildford, for bridal prep. It was a gorgeous morning and when I arrived to start documenting the day, I knew it was going to be a wonderful day. After the ceremony at The Mansion, Leatherhead, we moved to a quaint little pub, with its converted barn in the village of West Horsley, Surrey for their reception. I can truly say I had a great time, everyone was full of laughter, happiness and genuine love for the special couple. From the reaction and review from the couple; and also their friends & family, I definitely captured  that and I believe you will see it also in the pictures below…

 

Enjoy

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.

Manchester Fine Art Engagement Photography – Ammaarah & Hamza

Manchester Surprise Marriage Proposal – Hamza proposes to Ammaarah

I was contacted by Hamza, as he had planned a romantic shopping and dinner trip to Manchester for his beautiful girlfriend Ammaarah. But what she didnt know, was that he was also planning to surprise her with a marriage proposal at the famous Manchester restaurant Rosso over lunch.

We discussed the plan on how and where I would photograph them in the restaurant and also the signal for me when he was ready to pop the question. With the cake ordered that would hold the gorgeous ring, and the table booked, the day was set for a very romantic marriage proposal.

I arrived at the restaurant early to speak to the manager, who showed me where the couple will be seated and the best place at the bar for me to get the best angle to photograph the couple from, but would also be discreet enough that they wouldn’t see me before the big moment.

It was very exciting shooting this surprise wedding proposal, and when they brought out the cake with the ring, and when Ammaarah notice what was happening, the look on her face was priceless!!

After the special moment and Ammaarah saying yes, we took a short walk to Manchester City Centre for a quick couple shoot before I left Hamza & Ammaarah to continue with their celebration.

Congrats to Hamza & Ammaarah, they were such a great couple, I am so glad that I played a part in your precious moment and  got photograph this special day.

Wishing them all the luck in the world and look forward to the announcement of their wedding.
