St Pauls Cathedral wedding photographer

Merchant Taylor Hall London wedding photography of Sophie and Alexander

Still holding onto this glorious summer weather, it was off to London to photograph the wedding of Sophie and Alexander. The wedding ceremony was held in the OBE Chapel of St Paul’s Cathedral and officiated by Alexander’s father, Bishop Bob Hardy. The OBE Chapel can be incredibly strict and formal but with Bob at the helm, the ceremony held all the grandeur and importance any wedding should have but with a informal side to it all as well. Alexander’s passion is music and the chapel was full to bursting with the incredible sounds of the choir, many of whom he has sung with over the years. We were lucky enough to get another couple of recitals from them (with Alexander joining in for the last session). St Paul’s Cathedral weddings are always a lot of fun – ceremony venues really don’t get much grander than this! The OBE Chapel offers an intimacy though, away from the crowds and gawkers. You do have to play a little bit of ‘dodge the tourists’ on the way out (and dodge the four man video team that the florist decided to send …but that’s another story!) After the ceremony it was a quick hop on a coach for a tour of London’s sights before arriving at Merchant Taylors Hall, London, another stunning venue in the heart of London.

The London livery halls never disappoint, steeped in grandeur and history and with great staff who look after everything seamlessly. For all this grandeur, you could easily assume that Sophie and Alexander were high falootin’ folk. But two more humble and straight forward people you are less likely to meet. Surgeons by trade (so we were expecting precision with the cake cut) Sophie has that unforced natural elegance and beauty that she is completely unaware of and Alexander has that strong, calm confidence you’d hope for in anyone who is about to take a scalpel to you! Well, after the ceremony he was calm and confident ..beforehand I think it was a little wobbly. No nerves on the dance floor, I’m glad to say. The DJ slipped from a waltz to Gangnam Style for their first dance which they both rose to the challenge.

Kate & Neil’s winter wedding at Pembroke Lodge

A pretty brisk February day for Kate & Neil’s winter wedding at Pembroke Lodge but some lovely low-lying winter sunshine made up for the chilly weather. It’s always a privilege to a part of someone’s wedding day but even more so when an old friend asks. I was at school with Neil a while back (far too long ago for comfort …!) Neil still has his cheeky chipmunk grin, great sense of humour and deep sense of integrity all of which showed in their wedding day; great friends and family but most of all the lovely Kate and their gorgeous little girl as a bridesmaid. Pembroke Lodge is a beautiful location with Richmond Park on one side and over looking the Thames on the other, quietly grand, wonderfully intimate and not over stated (as well as having some of the nicest and most professional staff which made everything so effortless).

Ravens Ait

Ravens Ait wedding photography | Just One

A surprisingly quiet and subdued moment for my choice of image for this week’s Just One from Claire and Ed’s wedding on Ravens Ait Island, London. A surprising choice because the day was all about the laughter, bold colours and so, so much fun. But I love this little moment between Claire and her father, off to one side just before they both walk down the aisle, incredibly touching. We always focus on how nervous a bride must be before the ceremony but it must also be an incredible range of emotions for the bride’s father as well. My little girl is only a toddler and I know I am only at the beginning of the journey of watching her grow up, it’s a long way off before I have to worry about this myself. That and giving away a daughter, I come from a Scottish heritage and we’re not well known for giving anything away! Anyway, here’s one of many of my favourite images from the day with plenty more to follow soon.

Ravens Ait wedding photography | Just One

Here’s one of my favourite images from Debi and Ian’s wedding on Ravens Ait, a London wedding venue on an island in the middle of the Thames. Debi and Ian brought some much needed sunshine over from Dubai which made for a superb reception on this stunning island. The wedding itself was in The Brompton Oratory which is an incredible space, hard to beat on sheer size and impressive beauty – of course, second only to Debi’s impressive beauty (had to get that line in!) Many more images to follow.

Syon Park wedding photographer | Just One

 Syon Park is a stunning London wedding venue and Gloria was no shrinking violet when it came to making the most of the backdrop! Gloria’s enthusiasm made being a Syon Park wedding photographer so much fun – timings went astray, we kept checking the rain clouds but none of that mattered as there was so much fun and laughter through out the day. Here’s one of my faourite shots from the day which perfect shows Gloria’s free spirit and the beautiful Long Gallery. Many more images to follow.

Marleybone wedding photography | Just One

Pheeee-yooo, what a scorcher! And I don’t just mean Sarah, the new Mrs Cussins. The weather in London this week has been incredible, beautifully sunny and hot. Now, I’m no fan of global warming and all that it involves but if it means we get the occasional glorious start to spring that this year has brought along, well, maybe I could be convinced otherwise! Marleybone wedding photography is one of my favourite registry offices to photograph in, long wood and marble paneled corridors and lovely registrars (a big bonus these days!) The steps are also iconic, the confetti shot against the grey/brown stone makes couples really stand out. Here’s one of my favourite images that stood out from the day. Many more to follow …as well as the blessing and wedding reception in Suffolk

Syon Park wedding photographer | Fiona + JB

What an amazing day – what an amazing place to be a Syon Park wedding photographer. Good weddings are all about chemistry and Fiona and JB have great chemistry. Really great chemistry! They were both determined to enjoy their wedding day at Syon Park but, and this is the sign of a good wedding, they were determined that everyone was going to as well. Fun, love and laughter and lots of it. Syon Park is an amazing backdrop as well, the main hall to get married in, the inner court yard for your reception all topped off with the evening in the stunning conservatory beautifully lit by Yes! Events. Being a Syon Park wedding photographer is always a joy but none more so when you have such a lovely couple to work with. You might notice as well that Fiona is quite keen on bubbles.

Syon House wedding photographer | Just One

Fiona and JB’s wedding at Syon House was an exercise in how to have fun – fun, loving and laid-back couple with fantastic friends and family, beautiful venue and plenty of champagne. What else could you want? Well, that blummin’ sunshine that we’ve been having no stop for the last month to shine for the reception for a start. Ho hum. Not to be and something that didn’t dampen the mood at all (just made this photographer a little annoyed, that’s all!) Here’s a couple of shots from the day – the first, not your usual romantic, fluffy couples shot but I just love this moment. Fiona had been on her feet all day and this was the first opportunity she had to sit down, unbidded JB started massaging her feet, now that’s love! The second shot is of the conservatory at Syon House, what an amazing building. Syon House wedding photographer. There’ll be more pics to follow soon.
