Planes, Trains & Automobiles
December 6, 2009
Bea & Thomas flew from the UK to Germany with their photographers David & Klaus for a photo shoot to remember! David explains…
I took these images of Bea and Thomas with my photo partner, Klaus, in a dockyard and the whole idea was just to surprise the gorgeous couple (who did great even with zero modelling experience) with the surroundings. They had no idea where we were taking them (“bbb…but this isn’t the way to the airport!”) but by the time we cracked open the Champagne and set up the gear they were loving every bit of it.
We had photographed their traditional wedding the week before and as they were such great people we thought we’d throw in a trash the dress shoot as a freebie present (not that we do this every wedding!). and they jumped at the chance. We chose a great sunny day and Klaus found a fantastic location (even the security guard thought it was pretty cool – and didn’t eject us) and we all had a fun few hours trying out different poses
Thanks to David for sharing this wonderful session

Second Time Lucky – David & Ingrid’s Redo Portraits
September 15, 2010
"David, an Aussie living in London, met Norwegian Ingrid on a trip to Norway through friends" photographer Ed began. "They hit it off straight away and had a long distance relationship for a while until Ingrid decided to move over to London. They both share a passion for music. Dave is a guitarist and music director and Ingrid is still studying, but sings. One thing led to another and they got married in July 2008 in Ingrid's home town Stavanger, in Norway. It was a fantastic wedding with people from London, Norway and Australia. However, one thing went badly wrong... their photographer lost their entire set of photos (their photographer was not me by the way!) due to a hard disk issue. Ingrid was naturally devastated!"
Oh I Do Like to be Beside the Seaside
April 17, 2010
Whenever the sun shines in London about 80% of the population speculate going to the beach and Brighton is usually the first port of call. It's quirky, it's quaint, it's nostalgic, it's hilariously British and it has a killer night life! So when it came for Charlie & Ross to have their 'Cherish the Dress' wedding shoot, where better to descend then this wonderful beach location!? The couple actually got married in December so they thought the juxtapositionof having some lovely, warming, outdoor shots would be absolutely perfecto.
Love on a Steam Train: Sarah & Gareth
July 22, 2013
It's not everyday you get to see a wedding on a steam train so I'm super excited to share Sarah and Gareth's fun wedding with you today. "Our wedding was randomly retro, vaguely vintage and a bit of a mish-mash adventure!" began the bride. "I grew up going on steam trains as a treat as my Grandpa was a big fan! So I was straight on the blower to The Great Central Railway as soon as we got engaged. We were lucky enough to be able to hire a fancypants Pullman rake, which is a bit 'Orient Express' - my Grandpa would be proud!"

Gena and Lea were married on the beach in front of The Shoosh Club in Brighton. They wanted a fun and relaxed wedding and so after lunch and milkshakes at JB's Diner they booked the VIP area of the club for their after party! Neither venues needed decorating and he whole thing was cost effective and chilled out for the couple and their guests.

A Colourful Festival Wedding at Ridge Farm: Layla & Dan
August 24, 2012
Layla & Daniel were married in Rusper, Sussex in St Mary Magdalene's Church, followed by a festival style wedding at Ridge Farm. I've featured weddings at this iconic wedding venue before - why so iconic you ask? Well the farm has a recording studio where Oasis, Queen (Bohemian Rhapsody was written here!) Roxy Music, Thin Lizzie, Black Sabbath and many many others have recorded albums! AHHHMAZING.
"The wedding was all personalised by me & Dan", wrote Layla, "including the wine glasses, the moustaches & lips, the heart decor, the table plan & numbers, the 'LOVE' sign and the bunting. We had a two-day wedding. From the start we knew we didn’t want everything to be over with in just one day! Ridge Farm was the PERFECT venue as we were able to hire it exclusively from Friday to Monday which meant our parents, brothers & sisters, bridesmaids and best men could share the whole time with us. We also had some friends of ours camping on the grounds. Friday was set-up day, with everyone mucking in; Saturday was the wedding; and on Sunday we had about 100 of our guests returning for a Hog Roast, DJ’s and dancing till the wee hours!"
Comic Book & Superhero Wedding: Holly & Anthony
November 26, 2012
Happy Monday you lovely little critters - have I got a wedding to start this week off with a bang or what!?
Unusually I was actually submitted this wedding by the groom and via twitter because his gorgeous bride, Holly, was nervous about doing so. Er, girl, are you KIDDING me?! I'm dying over your wedding. The comic book, superhero and geek chic radness is just too good. This is one of those weddings that I genuinely wish I'd been invited to!
