Wandsworth Town Hall Wedding {Cecily & Dottie}

I’m always really inspired by the Art Deco architecture of Wandsworth Town Hall, and the Grand Chamber is the cherry on top of this architectural gem. It’s the perfect place for a London wedding with a bit of art deco style.

I had the pleasure of meeting Cecily and Dottie when I photographed their friends wedding a couple of years again. And now getting to know them over the course of planning their own wedding was delightful. I loved the colourful and personal touches they made for their wedding, from the rainbow confetti and to the brightly coloured flowers.

After their wedding ceremony at Wandsworth Town Hall, we took a vintage Red London Bus and headed to The Antelope Pub, in Tooting, South London. The Antelope had a really fantastic private hire room with really beautiful light and loads of character and charm.

A London “Trash the Dress” Session

Doing a “Trash the Dress” Session or a “Couples Session” outside of the day you actually get married can be really useful. There’s less stress than a normal wedding, and we can plan the session around weather and light. There’s less concern about timeline or any smudges on your clothes.

Cem and Kathleen wanted to book a session announce their marriage. They were traveling through London and wanted to take the chance to have a take some photos to commemorate them getting married.

For their session, we started just after sunrise on Tower Bridge and then moved through some of my favourite spots in London. They were keen to have a few of the “big statement backgrounds” but also quaint London streets with a little bit of history.

I had a blast photographing this session and I really loved getting to know them both. They were such fantastic people and really interesting to chat with over our session.

“Kari absolutely blew past my expectations, the pictures she took of me and my wife are true treasures that we will be looking at for a life time. She was incredibly professional, efficient and great at keeping our spirits up for 4 straight hours! When I say that these are the best pictures of me and my wife I have ever seen, I truly mean it! Would recommend Kari in a heart beat, so very thankful we found her.” -Cem

An Intimate Wedding at Islington Town Hall {Heather & Hillyer}

Heather and Hillyer wanted a small wedding.  Nothing too over the top and nothing too fancy.   The Georgia natives have been living in London the last couple of years, and knew it was the perfect place to tie the knot.

Their only wedding guests were their parents who flew over from the States and two close friends.  Even though there was only a handful of wedding guests, they still wanted to have their ceremony in the stunning Council Chamber of Islington Town Hall.

After they made everything legal and had some confetti thrown at them, we headed on the streets of Islington for some photos.  We timed the photos perfectly, we had stunning light while were outside, and then as soon as we popped into pub where they were going to have their evening drinks, the heavens opened up and it started to pour.

From talking to Heather and Hillyer, you could tell they weren’t fussed with having a big wedding, but they didn’t want to lose out on the chance of having wedding photos.  I was so incredibly touched with how important photography was to them, and I’m honoured that they had me there to be apart of this intimate London wedding.

A Summer Wedding at Micheal Hall School {Sinead and Giacomo}

I really loved shooting this wedding.  There was loads of stunning light, great backdrops and beautiful people.  I loved that they made so many personal touches and really understood what is at the heart of a wedding.

It first started with the hotel in the morning, the incredible Gravetye Manor.  Gravetye Manor has a lot of connections to Sinead’s family, and even Sinead herself had spent years working in the hotel.

It was then on to the Micheal Hall School.  This building holds a lot of memories to Sinead as well.  She spent many years on the grounds of the school studying and making friends for life.  Many of those friends were there at the wedding and revisiting their old school and reliving memories.

After the outdoor ceremony, they headed to the tipi marquee for the meal.  The tipi on the school grounds was a perfect set up for the wedding day, plenty of space for dinner.  On the tables, they had placed tiny jars of olive oil, grown on Giacomo’s family land in Sicily.

Sinead and Giacomo- Thank you very much for having me and my second shooter, Irene, along to photograph your incredible day.  It was an honour to be there!

Wedding on Heaven Farm Uckfield, East Sussex {Oliver & Emma}

There couldn’t be a better name for this wedding venue then Heaven Farm.  A peaceful spot nestled between a lake, a forest and a field.  It was even once voted one of England’s most beautiful farms. Emma and Oliver couldn’t have picked a better spot for their wedding.

Heaven Farm, in East Sussex, was a perfect spot for an outdoor wedding.  It had a lovely spot that allowed them to get legally married outside and a really lovely spot a tipi.  Emma and Oliver completely lucked out on the weather as well, you couldn’t of asked for a more perfect day.

Although Oliver and Emma come from different backgrounds, one from a farm and the other from the city.  They both love the same things, they love festivals and music and spending time with their friends.   The most important thing for Oliver and Emma are their children.  Their children were such an important part of the day as well.

As the sun started to set over the field of Heaven Farm, we headed out for a quick set of pictures with that that glorious golden light.  It didn’t take long to get a crackin’ set!

Oliver and Emma- Thank you so much for having me be apart of your wedding.  It was so much fun putting your wedding albums together and reliving the day!  You both, your friends and your family were such a lovely set of people and I loved photographing the whole thing!
