The new website is up with updated galleries and a more contemporary look and feel. Head over there this way…
Here are a few of my faves from Rebecca and Al (aka Smiler)’s recent wedding in Wiltshire. I met up with Al and his many (I think I lost count at 13!) ushers in the wee village of West Overton before heading to Rebecca’s family farm where she was getting ready.
Rain and gale force winds didn’t seem to be that much of a bother to anyone. If anything, it made the atmosphere in the church and later on in the marquee that much more cozy!
The next picture was taken by Chaiyasith Junjuerdee (aka “Oat”), one of Bangkok’s premier wedding photographers. He couldn’t get over the complete and total fun he had! I’m thrilled to have Oat join me at weddings throughout 2011.
One by Oat:
After a proper roasting from the best man, Rebecca and Al hit the dancefloor where Fake Tan rocked the house all night.
Another one of Oat’s:
I always love it when I get the chance to meet up with past couples, especially ones as lovely as Al’s sister, Annabel and her husband Ali, who had an equally fab wedding in Kent last year. Those Merrisons sure know how to throw a party!
Covered Occasions did a fantastic job providing the marquee for the day, especially considering what was going on outside!
Lucy and Rob had a modern, urban wedding in London’s Notting Hill. After tying the knot at Westminster Register Office we headed to 20th Century Theatre, right in the heart of Portobello Market, stopping en route for a few pictures nearby.
Rob is wondering why he’s walking down the aisle holding the flowers…
I always get excited when couples tell me they’re having a ceilidh and it’s guaranteed to get everyone on their feet in the evening.
Welcome to 2011 and my brand new blog.
On to the first wedding of the year…
Americans Helen and Patrick held their wedding one mild day in January at The Harte and Garter in Windsor. I should correct myself as Helen’s very much an English lass so it was fitting to bring families from both sides of the pond together. We spent some time before the ceremony walking around the historic centre and it was a good thing we did as the weather quickly reverted to…well…no points on guessing what that was. I really loved Helen and Patrick’s laid-back, practical style which is very much in keeping with so many of the previous couples I’ve photographed. Here are a few faves:
This is my favourite photograph of the day. It’s not technically perfect and initially I was about to bin it but there is something about it that I can’t put my finger on. It kind of reminds me of a previous era, like a picture of your grandparents just after they got married. Definitely my cup of tea.
