East London Wedding // Shawn & Rachael

Weddings

Shawn and Rachael’s East London wedding was a non-stop whirlwind of events, and we’re not quite sure how it all got squeezed into 8 hours! We first met Shawn and Rachael at a wedding fair last September where they happened to be walking past and came to take a look (i.e bag a glass of free champagne). They were a super friendly couple, and so excited to be planning their wedding day together, we hit it off and they booked an engagement session to boot!  Shawn and Rachael met working at a summer kids camp a few years ago ‘where Rachel fell for my awesome guitar playing skills and Aussie accent’ said Shawn.

We really felt like we journeyed with Shawn and Rachel, from their engagement session with us, to their first dance – it was an amazing ride to have been a part of and we felt honoured to capture it. We always encourage getting to know our couples as much as possible before their big day as it really helps them warm up in front of the camera and we end up feeling more like friends rather than just a couple of crazy paps!

Shawn and Rachel decided on an East London Wedding, where their local church is based – Christ Church Spitalfields. It’s an iconic building just opposite the famous Spitalfields market with an amazing naturally lit interior that made our hearts swell (photographers will get what we mean). After all the tears of joy and hurricane of confetti, they held a quick mini reception inside the church before we hijacked them for their couple portraits around the city. What we loved about these guys was that they were up for anything, basically walking across Millennium Bridge in their wedding getup didn’t phase them – but London is that kind of a place,  you can do anything and it’s just kind of normal. Their main reception was at The Stationer’s Hall, one of the City’s original Livery Halls. It was a gorgeous traditional venue with a feeling of grandeur to it, and the secret garden at the back was incredible, apparently it has the oldest tree in London planted in it – how’s that for a fun fact. These guys ate, laughed, cried and danced the rest of the night away, so take a look and enjoy this East London wedding ride!

A Most Curious Wedding Fair London 2017
We were seriously overexcited when Becky and Cat (co-founders of A Most Curious Wedding Fair) got in touch to ask us to photograph the London show this year. For those of you who don't know, A Most Curious Wedding Fair is for all the cool brides and grooms out there, who want to bring a creative, stylish and alternative edge to their day. Held at the Old Truman Brewery in the hipster haven that is Brick Lane (not far from our own doorstep) you'll find no polished glamour here, it's free spirited rock 'n' roll all the way, and we loved it. A Most Curious Wedding Fair is the biggest and most forward-thinking of its kind in London. Becky and Ca ...

Froyle Park Wedding // Kavita & Amrik
Dan and I had attended a traditional Indian wedding as guests before and I remember thinking how brilliant it would be to actually photograph one. Kavita and Amrik's Froyle Park wedding in December did not disappoint us! It was a cultural explosion of emotion, colour and energy like we had never seen before. With back-to-back ceremonies and traditions on the schedule, 3 bridal outfit changes and 200+ guests, this was not for the faint hearted to capture. Kavita and Amrik chose to have a rustic winter wedding just before Christmas at the beautiful Froyle Park in Hampshire. This historical manor house dates back to 1620 and is surrounded by 80 ...

Ilaria and Derek // Borgotaro Wedding
My excitement shoots through the roof when we get to photograph a Borgotaro wedding. Not just because I spent my summers growing up there, and everything reminds me of being carefree, but I love a good catch up with my Italian family. There is nowhere quite like the humble beauty of this town and its panoramic backdrops. Nestled in a valley surrounded by the luscious green Italian Apennines, it has all the epic scenery you could wish for when shooting a wedding, and here we were for Ilaria and Derek's. Ready to roll. They'd been together for the best part of a decade and made the decision to marry in a church where many a family member had al ...
