A Greenwich Yacht Club Wedding {Russell & Lucy}

Planning to get married in 2020 has turned into a bit of a challenge, to say the least.  Lucy and Russell watched Lucy and Russell didn’t want to wait any longer to get married. So even though there were still loads of restrictions to their wedding, including face masks and social distancing, Lucy and Russell were absolutely excited that they could go ahead with their wedding on their original wedding date.

Lucy still arrived in style on an incredible union jack boat after a trip up and down the Thames. They then had their wedding at the fantastic Greenwich Yacht Club in London. It’s nestled right on the river Thames, just a stone’s throw away from the 02.  They have two venue spaces, one that sits right over the river, and a second smaller one that overlooks the boatyard.  The Greenwich Yacht Club was great for wedding photography, with big stunning windows letting loads of fantastic light during their ceremony to having such an unusual backdrop with the boatyard and the yacht club itself.

Even though I was only apart of Lucy and Russells wedding day for a short amount of time, I had a fantastic time with them and their family and friends.  Thank you so much for having me be apart of wedding!

A Summer Wedding at Trinity College Cambridge Wedding {Maria & Suli}

One of my favourite things about England is the hidden magic that lies behind some of its walls.  Cambridge and Oxford, in particular, are amazing at having hidden architectural gems just hidden away.  Small wooden doors nestled in large stone walls, that open up into incredible colleges that feel like a movie set.  You can, if you time it right, tour these colleges.  But more often then not it seems, these buildings are closed to the public.

Places like Trinity College in Cambridge are still working colleges and they are still being used for the purpose they were built for, even 450 years later. In order to get married at Trinity College Cambridge, you usually need to have a connection to the school.  In the case of Maria and Suli, this is because it’s Suli’s alma mater. Suli loved attended Trinity College, and to be able to bring all of his friends and family back for his wedding was incredibly special.

I loved shooting this wedding, from the magical architectural backdrop to being able to see two families, from opposite sides of the world come together. Maria and Suli- Thank you again for having me be apart of your incredible day, it was definitely one of my favourite weddings of 2019.

A Rainy October Wedding at the Round Chapel in Hackney {Callum & Sophia}

The weather on the day of Callum and Sophia’s wedding was less than ideal.  It was cold, windy and raining sideways, pretty typical for an English wedding in October.

If you’re planning a wedding where you fear the weather might be your friend, it’s best to take a page out of Sophia and Callum’s book.  Pick a venue that has as much room inside as possible, and bonus points if it’s architecturally interesting as well as having space.   So even though the heavens were opening up, you wouldn’t know it from how amazing the party was on the inside.

A big shout out to the wedding coordinator for this wedding, Ann Nicholas and her team, who were fantastic to work with.

An Autumn Wedding at South Farm {Lucy & Jonathan}

Jonathan and Lucy met on a cruise ship when they were both on family holidays and just barely teenagers.  Jonathan recalls Lucy stopping to watch him sing Whitney Houston’s “extremely well”, for a 13-year-old as Jonathan puts it.

They became fast friends exploring the cruise ship together but had trouble keeping contact in the days before Facebook and WhatsApp.  Years later, Jonathan found lucy’s number when he was preparing to move to London for drama school and now many years later, they now live in London with their dog, Mabel.

On the hunt for an eco-friendly wedding venue, they found South Farm. If you’re not familiar with South Farm, it’s a family-run venue that incredibly eco-friendly and even produces a lot of their own produce that’s served at weddings.  Between their farmhouse, barns and gardens, there’s loads of space to work with.  They also fell in love with the outdoor ceremony space that South Farm has.  And even though they were having an October wedding, they were determined to have their ceremony outside.

If some of the guests and wedding party look familiar, Jonathan is one of the creators of “The Play that Goes Wrong” and a collection of other plays as apart of Mischief Theatre, which has now been expanded to the “The Goes Wrong Show” which is now on BBC 1.  It was amazing to see how incredibly tight-knit the entire cast is and how absolutely hilarious they are in real life and I had an absolute blast shooting this wedding.

A big thank you to Lucy and Jonathan and everyone who was at the wedding for making me feel incredibly welcome and a part of the team.
