Wedding at Northbrook Park

BellissimaPhoto Surrey Wedding Photographer Leave a Comment

Last year Liam and Lauren got in touch with me to enquire as to my availability to shoot their wedding at Northbrook Park. Having shot there numerous times before and the fact I really enjoy working there meant it was great to be available. It’s a difficult venue to beat on a nice sunny day and being in the countryside, offers a real sense of peacefulness in beautiful surroundings.

I arrived nice and early with my assistant and kicked off photographing Lauren’s bridal preparation. Always looking to push my images, I am happy to say that one of the getting ready shots below is one of my all-time favourites!

Soon enough it was time for the ceremony is the Vine Room, after which we made our way outside for some group photos and then onto a quick couple shoot before joining everyone for the drinks reception, which included some croquet on the lawn.

The Orangery was beautifully decorated as always and everyone sat down to a delicious afternoon tea and some of the funniest speeches I have heard in a good while! Liam’s speech was especially entertaining and had everyone in stitches. I had to stop myself laughing too loud!

It was really a lovely laid back day and after the cake cutting, first dance and capturing photos of people having fun on the dancefloor is wrapped up another highly enjoyable wedding at this venue, with a very nice couple!

Engagement Shoot in Cardiff

BellissimaPhoto Cardiff Wedding Photography Leave a Comment

When Darshika and Himesh booked me for their upcoming Hindu and Civil wedding, they were very keen to have an engagement shoot in Cardiff. I had never been to Cardiff and I had heard that it is lovely, so we pencilled that in! A few weeks ago we met up in a slightly cool but sunny Cardiff and spent a good few hours wandering about, taking photos and having a good chat about the wedding plans.

It really is a beautiful city and we took a nice stroll through Bute Park, stopping for photos as and when. Time flew by and we slowly meandered our way back into the city for a very delicious lunch. I am now a Wok to Walk convert and wish they would open up more restaurants!

We then headed out to Caerphilly Castle where we made it just before closing time, but we had enough time to get a great series of shots, both inside and outside the 13th century castle, before wrapping things up.

Now, after their engagement shoot in Cardiff, I am really looking forward to the Civil and Hindu wedding coming up with this fantastic couple!

Funke & Olivier’s Northbrook Park Wedding

BellissimaPhoto Surrey Wedding Photographer Leave a Comment

I have shot plenty of weddings at Northbrook Park and regard it as one of my favourite venues. So needless to say I was delighted to be available to shoot Funke and Olivier’s Northbrook Park wedding! The interesting thing about shooting weddings at Northbrook Park is that each one is very different. That may sound obvious, but the people, the decorations and the array of weddings I have shot there, ranging from Hindu weddings, to Muslim weddings and English weddings means each one is beautiful and unique for its own reasons.

What really amazed me on the day was Funke and Olivier’s amazing taste and attention to detail in terms of styling! I have included some pictures showing this below, but you must take a look at the wedding cake picture! Well, it’s not merely a cake, but a beautiful cake on a very large table with all sorts of other delicious treats too! The pastel coloured flowers were everywhere and combined with a gorgeous looking and very nice couple meant I had a fabulous time capturing their special day.

All in all it was a fabulous day and we got to do two short couple shoots, listen to some moving speeches and enjoy some fabulous food. It was a real pleasure working with Funke and Olivier!

London Wedding Photography at Kew Gardens

Eman and Rupert got in touch with me last year regarding shooting their wedding at Kew Gardens. As a London wedding photographer I get to shoot at all sorts of venues in and around London, but Kew Gardens is right up there on my list of favourites, not to mention the fact that it is about a ten minute drive from my home!

We met up a couple of months earlier for an engagement shoot in Central London and to have a good chat about the big day in more detail. It’s always great to get to know each other before the wedding day and to get some lovely romantic pictures.

Soon enough the big day arrived and I made my way over to Kensington for Eman’s bridal preparation coverage. I love walking in to all the buzz and excitement during this part of the day. I usually start off photographing all the details then just document things as they unfold. Time flew by and before I knew it I hopped into my car and raced down the A4 to Kew Gardens which was just a short drive away.

Eman and Rupert’s ceremony took place in the beautiful Nash Conservatory – a stunning building with loads and loads of lovely natural light. After a ceremony which included some touching readings, we all made our way outside onto the lawn for the drinks reception. Thankfully we didn’t have to use the wet weather indoor option, the Princess of Wales Conservatory, which in fairness is pretty good as well!

We then hopped on the provided golf buggy and whizzed about for a couple shoot. With Kew being as massive as it is we didn’t venture too far but still managed to get a fantastic variety of pictures before returning to the drinks reception.

The reception was held in the Orangery and as always, it looked amazing. After all the guests had found their seats, Eman and Rupert entered to rapturous applause before settling down for a delicious meal. What followed were some highly entertaining speeches, cake cutting and the first dance. One of the reasons they booked me for their wedding photography, was to have some dramatic night time couple portraits. This is always a great way to end coverage of a wedding! I do a quick scout about and come up with a few concepts, then invite the couple outside for a quick ten minute session. Very well worth the effort!

That wrapped up another thoroughly enjoyable wedding at Kew.

I met Catherine to back in 2013 for a chat about her and Simon’s Horniman Museum wedding photography requirements. The Horniman Museum, in Forest Hill,  is one of those London wedding venues I have always wanted to shoot at and I was really excited when they decided to book me as they are a brilliant couple and I could foresee it being a fantastic wedding.

Catherine and Simon are very keen pub goers, so we did a pub themed engagement shoot just down the road from the wedding venue in their local pub. That was really cool and we got in there as they opened up one sunny Saturday morning. That shoot should appear in a blog post as well sometime, but I cannot guarantee when! I have some catching up to do, to put it mildly!
Roll on to the wedding day and I went over to Catherine and Simon’s house to photograph her getting ready. Being Australian, she had a lot of family and friends come all the over to the UK which was brilliant.

What was quite hilarious is the fact that the wedding was held in a glass house on the hottest day of the year in 2014! The glass house being the beautiful Horniman Conservatory. After the ceremony we all made out way over to the Pavilion for canapes and a drinks reception. We then slipped away for 15 minutes or so for a quick couple shoot before it was time to return to the conservatory for the reception and for me to consume more vast quantities of water. The gorgeous looking layered cheese cake fought gallantly against the heat and emerged triumphant, just!
There were some really touching speeches filled with emotion and laughs. Although I am always working away like a beaver, I do listen intently to the speeches as not only does it give me an indication of a possible moment about to happen in a reaction or a look, a smile or a tear, but they’re pretty much always highly entertaining and enjoyable.

After devouring more water and a roast lamb dinner, we managed to slip away for five minutes to the top of the hill for a few quick sunset shots before returning for the first dance and partying into the night.

It was one of my favourite weddings of 2014 in a really beautiful venue with a brilliant couple – what more can I ask for!
