One of our recent weddings was at the beautiful Chiswick House in London. The Grooms large Italian family perfectly matched the Italian inspired architecture.
We set up a unique group shot utilising the large pillars at the front of the house. We also made good use of the large gardens and grand interior of the house for the bride and grooms shoot. The small details of the whole wedding really came together to create some stunning photographs!
Our other Wedding on 7th June was at the beautiful Runnymede Hotel and Spa situated right on the Thames. We all got to enjoy fantastic weather on the river banks and the ushers had some fun threatening to throw the groom into the river!
The bride and groom were really up for trying something different and trekked out of the hotel into some nearby long grass for some really lovely shots, despite the grooms (and my) hay fever!
One of our weddings on 7th June 2008 was at the beautiful Aldermaston Manor, Berkshire. The couples theme was ‘British’. This included arriving in a vintage Morris Minor, a cake made completely of cupcakes topped with a Union Jack flag and all this hosted in a classic English country house.
The cupcakes were a big hit (I know I loved mine – thanks Claire!), even though one of them managed to get all over the grooms face by the end of the evening!
As a surprise for the dad’s 60th birthday, this family came down from London to do a shoot. We started off with some really casual relaxed family poses, but then the daughter really wanted to try out some dancing photos! They turned out brilliant – got some great laughs and great poses out of them.
Right at the end the son wanted to do a couple of model shots – as he’d been working on his abs! The dad, also wanted to get in on these and do a couple of Samuel L Jackson poses with his kangol hat!
This was one of those weddings that we knew would be something different from the beginning! Lisa and Jez had hired out a luxury villa in Ibiza for their friends and family to come and celebrate their special day with them.
It was great fun to photograph – so many beautiful locations and backdrops, and one of the rare opportunities Hannah and I get to shoot a wedding together. It was a really busy day with lots of running around – climbing on the villa roof and avoiding the pool!
The whole day had a really chilled out, relaxed feel and the photos definitely show what a great time everyone had. We were so excited about the images we had edited half of the wedding by the time we flew back the next day!
