Forgive me, but I literally almost wet myself when I saw these shots from the hottest, newest photographer on the block, Emma Case – and can you believe it, this is only her first official ‘Emma Case wedding’! (I’ve featured a wedding she shot for a friend before she decided to pursue it full time.) I got a very excitable email from the lady herself this morning and I couldn’t wait to get home to share these right away.
“Well, here it is, my very first, official, didn’t know the couple before, professional, as ‘Emma Case Photography’ wedding!” She began.
“Christie contacted me back in November and straight away I knew just how ace she was. Not only did she mention fake moustaches and knee-sliding as part of the wedding plan but she was funny and honest and completely on my wavelength. We emailed back and forth in a ‘know each other already’ type of way and by the time me and Pete were driving up to Devon on the 30th January I was a little nervous but so excited to finally meet her (we didn’t get the chance beforehand) and her soon to be husband… the Berninator!
The wedding was held at the most amazing Huntsham Court… oh man the bathroom in the bridal suite was AMAZING, oh and the library… and the… well you can see for yourselves, the whole house is stunning!
Emma & Mattias’ urban & gritty engagement session in Hackney Wick (the East End of London) have inspired me no end. I not only love the rough ‘n ready, graffiti style shots (which are fast becoming a bit of a McNeil signature) but the wonderful heart shots send my heart a-flutter. I asked David how this images came about and he told me that as they were wondering down the street, looking for locations, they came across a warehouse where a Valentines night was being set up. They asked nicely if they would use their heart covered wall as a backdrop and the lovely people said yes. Aren’t the results fabulous?

This cute West London engagement shoot delighted me ever so much as I work very near here – in fact I drive past the modern building featured in some of the shots everyday and think how much nicer it looks than the studios where I work…and aren’t Sarah-Jane & Mitul just adorable?I thought my American readers in particular would love the old buildings in some of the other shoots… here in the UK we’re used to old churches and the terraced houses…very quintessentially English huh?
After swooning over all the vintage gorgeousness at The Designer Wedding show yesterday (full blog post including photographs and links to my favourite exhibitors soon!) when the awesome UK photographer Ian Johnson sent me this stunner of an art deco wedding I jumped at the chance to feature it as soon a physically possible…you can see why, right?
Richard & Sarah, a movie producer and an actress, were always old movie lovers so it was natural to then to bring this theme into their day. The wedding took place at Waters Edge Resort in Westbrook, Connecticut and even though the plan was for the wedding to be a sunset one, it actually ended up being bathed in moonlight. Sarah wore a vintage dress and her Grandmother’s veil.
