Wedding // a cinema ceremony at the Duke of Yorks, Brighton

When I met Lee & Amy for their consultation they said 'I'm afraid we won't be as cool as your other couples'. Errrrr... hello! Their wedding was immense - a ceremony in one of my favourite venues - the Duke of York's cinema, one of the oldest cinema's in the country. And then they had a reception at The Basement which is an art and theatre venue in Brighton. They told me they had just fallen in love with the exposed brickwork and basement feel. I could see why!

I think it's fair to say this is one of the most difficult weddings I've shot lighting wise as their wedding was in November and both venues had little natural light and a lot of red (any photographer will tell you that's tough!) but I'm really happy with the end set of images!

Amy's dress is from Ghost, isn't it incredible?!

[Wedding] A Vietnamese Wedding With Photos at Hatfield Forest and Docklands Reception

There's so much I could say about this wedding, and there were so more images I could post. It was absolutely amazing and every bit as epic as it looks. The day started with a morning tea ceremony at Thuy's parents house in Harlow, this included many customs including the swapping of gifts, a wine toasting and lighting of incense. I must admit this was all new to me and I found it so amazing to watch - it was so emotional! Thuy's family were clearly so proud of her.

After all the morning festivities me and Thuy headed to her house for her bridal preps before heading to Bishops Stortford for a catholic ceremony. This was the first catholic ceremony I'd photographed, Thuy warned me it would be long, especially as her family had added some Vietnamese twists to the service (even the bishop - I hope I got that right! - said he had never conducted a service like that before) but I was really pleased for it, it gave me a little time to breathe and just be creative with the ceremony shots.

Stuart, Thuy and me had a little eventful ride through Hatfield forest to do some couples photos on the way from Essex to Docklands! We think they're worth it though.

Their reception was at Yi-Ban, which is a restaurant at Docklands. I was loving watch Stuart get more and more errr... tipsy with each new cognac while they were doing the table toasting! It's a custom for Thuy and Stuart to visit each table and to be given some advice on a successful relationship at each one. Loved it!

As I said, I tried to get the images down to as little as possible, but wanted to give you as much of the story of their day as possible. I want to say a massive thank you to Thuy and Stuart for entrusting me with their day - I know it was an extremely important day for them and t was the first I'd shot like it!

Wedding // A beautiful rainy city winter wedding in Wandsworth and a reception in a London Leon

I shot my last wedding of the year last Saturday and this week I've mostly been editing and reflecting on what an incredible year it's been. I'll be doing a blog post before the years out but in the meantime I want to share this amazing wedding with you. I have so many weddings to blog from this year. But this winter wedding is possibly the one I'm most proud of - the light was tough, it rained all day but I couldn't be happier with this set of images. I think what makes them is Ebba's amazing smile. It didn't come off her face all day and her happiness is infectious! Just looking at these images makes my heart sing.

This is my favourite type of wedding - no expensive frills, down to earth and a couple just so clearly in love.

Despite the rain hammering down, Ebba insisted we all get the 37 from their flat to Wandsworth Town Hall. She was an absolute picture on the bus in the dress her and her mum made (yep, you heard that right!), her red heels and her mile wide red lipped grin - I loved her for it, she looked like a movie star! Ebba is Swedish so it's not customary for her to not see her groom beforehand so her and John spent the morning together - I say that, Ebba got pampered while John went out for sandwiches and sushi!

They were married in the amazing council room at Wandsworth Town Hall - a huge red room with a high ceiling and circular seating. A hired bus took them and their guests to a Leon restaurant in St Pauls - I love Leon so this got a massive thumbs up from me. Not only do they do amazing wholesome food the buildings are so airy with their exposed brickwork and light walls.

Popcorn kept the guests happy before their amazing feast was served, throughout which there were speeches from pretty much everyone - a Swedish tradition!

Massive congratulations to Ebba & John and hats off to you for pouring yourselves into your day, resulting in an absolutely amazing wedding x
