London Wedding Photographer

feel-good photography for your London wedding

Call me biased, but as a London wedding photographer, I believe that there’s no better place in the world to get married.

However, regardless of whether you celebrate saying “I do” with a sightseeing cruise down the Thames, an extravagant party in Chelsea or an intimate celebration on London’s Southbank, it’s important that you feel relaxed, confident and comfortable in front of the camera. No iconic London backdrop can distract from uncomfortable grimaces and cheesy posing.

This is where I come in. For a long time, I hated having my own photograph taken (I still do on bad hair days). So, I totally understand that you might be feeling a bit apprehensive about how you and your fiancé are captured throughout your London wedding day.   

Let me assure you that, you do not need to be supermodels to love how you look in your wedding photographs. Nor do you need to spend hours trying to perfect elaborate and awkward poses. With me, your London wedding is photographed beautifully whilst you remain firmly in your comfort zone.

No stress. No cheese. No cliches.

As a result, your gallery of wedding images will capture all of the unscripted magical moments your special day will undoubtedly feature; from your nervous smiles as you walk down the aisle, and the “We did it!” grins as you are showered in confetti, to the epic dance moves your wedding guests will unleash after those heartfelt and hilarious speeches.

My wedding photography promise to you

 Regardless of whether you are planning a low-key London wedding, a laughter-filled LGBTQ+ celebration, a wonderfully unique UK wedding or are a couple who goes gooey inside when viewing those delightful destination nuptials (I travel to wherever my couples need me to be), my goal is simple…

Creating wedding photography with the ‘Wow’ factor, whilst ensuring loved-up London couples like you, feel 100% comfortable in your own skin.

wedding PHOTOGRAPHY WITHOUT THE STRESS

London is a city made for romantic photoshoots, and when you book me as your wedding photographer, there’s no time limit on how long we spend together capturing portraits of you as a newlywed couple. If you can’t decide between having stylish, editorial photographs taken alongside the modern architecture of Canary Wharf or the decaying decadence of St Dunstan in the East, let’s simply hail a black cab and shoot at both locations.

I also fully understand that it may take some time for you and your loved one to fully relax in front of the camera, so a walk and talk to get to know each other and settle those nerves is always a feature of my shoots. A chilled stroll through a London park or via a bustling city borough provides ample opportunity to build a connection that’s far deeper than just photographer and client.

By the time I’ve connected my lens to my camera body and dialled in my aperture settings, I will have taken the time to listen to your concerns and understand any insecurities you have.  You’ll leave your wedding or engagement shoot feeling fabulously confident and delighted that you’ve found a photographer you can be yourself with.

PHOTOGRAPHING LOVE IN LONDON

Whilst I now live in sunny Chelmsford, London is not only where I shoot the majority of my weddings but also where I spend most of my days off. I love perusing new exhibitions at The National Portrait Gallery, meeting up with friends for some yoga on Hampstead Heath and enjoying dinner and a show with my partner in London’s West End.  In fact, I met my partner in Soho 13 years ago and we’ve been blissfully in love ever since, so London will always hold a special place in my heart.

What is always evident on my jaunts into the capital, is how beautifully diverse the city is and how much freedom couples have to express themselves and their love for one another. This freedom to live and love authentically is exactly what I celebrate in my work as your wedding photographer.

There will never be any pressure to look or act in a way that does not feel natural to you. Want to be photographed in front of the London Eye but really aren’t the hand-holding type? Not a problem. Dreaming of a romantic photoshoot in Richmond Park but aren’t the kissing on camera kind? Absolutely no pressure from me.

Whether you’re planning on exchanging rings in a religious-led ceremony in St. Paul’s Cathedral or looking to swap self-written vows at Islington Town Hall, your comfort is as important to me as my creativity. Once I’ve taken the time to really get to know you both, eradicate any worries, and set expectations for your London-based wedding shoot, we can then work collaboratively to capture those joy-infused photographs.

Perhaps I’ll slow down my shutter speed so that your photos show you frozen in time, as commuters and London red buses blur around you. Maybe I will photograph you casually strolling down Mayfair as tourists and Londoners alike, pause to admire your newlywed glow.

Both on your pre-wedding shoot and on your wedding day itself, I guarantee that you’ll have images that encapsulate your true personalities, whilst also showcasing your favourite London locations.

The wonderfully diverse city of London fully embraces individuality and so do I. Never will I ask you to be anything other than 100% yourselves.

London offers an unrivalled choice of wedding venues. You can exchange rings in front of breath-taking skyline views at the top of modern landmarks such as the Shard and the Gherkin or choose to share your first kiss surrounded by the stunning natural scenery of Kew Gardens’ glasshouse conservatory.

After something grittier and more historic? Asylum Chapel might just be the Grade ii listed space you are looking for. Alternatively, follow in the footsteps of Liam Gallagher, Paul McCartney and Claudia Winkleman by hosting your London ceremony at Old Marylebone Town Hall.

Regardless of your choice of wedding venue, I’ll be there to photograph each moment faithfully and authentically. What does that mean? It means that on the day, I’ll take a predominately reportage / documentary approach; photographing events as they unfold naturally and only intervening when quickly composing the group shots or setting up my off-camera flash for some nighttime portraits.

It also means that when editing your images, I won’t lazily cover them with generic and faddy filters or tacky photoshop actions. After all, if you’ve spent the last 18 months finding bridesmaids dresses in the perfect shade of blue, why would you then want me to edit your images so heavily that they look a totally different shade in your wedding photographs?

I can guarantee that your photos will be sensitively enhanced, fully rendered and optimised for use both online and in print, whilst still accurately depicting all of the vibrant colours, real emotions and diverse personalities your London wedding day will be filled with.

Reasons to Relax

You'll have the wedding photos that mean most to you

Even some of London’s best wedding photographers can get bogged down by kit and technical jargon and can end up treating your wedding as a fashion shoot.

They can be more interested in being an award-winning photographer, than taking the time to find out which images will resonate most with you on your wedding day.

Being a wedding photographer for me is not about winning awards. It’s all about winning your trust and creating photography that makes your souls light up and that will make your hearts glow for years to come.

you'll never have to leave your comfort zone

I’m not the type of wedding photographer who will force you to step outside of your comfort zone just to get a ‘thrilling’ shot. Neither will I make you try to live up to unrealistic standards, or conventional ideas about how you ‘should’ look or feel on your wedding day.

So whether you’re a London couple who love the camera, or  a pair for whom the thought of professional photography fills you with dread, please relax.

All you have to do is be 100% yourselves; because, quite frankly, you’re awesome just as you are.

YOU'LL HAVE A HELPING HAND THROUGHOUT YOUR WEDDING JOURNEY

When you choose me as your London wedding photographer, I’ll shower you with gifts and advice and I will always be at the end of a phone or email should you have a wedding planning wobble! 

You’ll receive a free copy of my wedding planning book which is packed with friendly advice about all aspects of planning your London wedding. 

You’ll also receive a welcome pack with helpful timelines, checklists and handy tips to take all the stress out of wedding planning. It’s my way of thanking you for putting your trust in me and helps to ensure you have the most stress-free experience possible. 

YOU CAN ASK ME FOR WEDDING SUPPLIER RECOMMENDATIONS

In my quest to be the best wedding photographer there is, I present a fortnightly podcast called ‘Your Individual Wedding.

Each episode features a range of trusted London wedding suppliers sharing their tips to help couples just like you to plan the special day you both dream of.

So if you’re still searching for that perfect videographer, can’t find that awesome celebrant, or need inspiration for your bridal dress or wedding outfit, simply subscribe to the podcast.

Wedding photographers are one of the few suppliers that get to see the whole wedding journey, and therefore I get to know which London suppliers will also help to make your day magical.  I can guarantee that if they’ve been on the podcast, they’re worth checking out.

FABULOUS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY WHATEVER THE WEATHER

When your London wedding day arrives, I’ll turn up equipped not only with my full photography kit (including spare camera bodies, lenses, batteries and memory cards), but also my ‘Peace of Mind’ pack.

It’s filled with useful items to help provide peace of mind on your special day, so you can concentrate on enjoying every second; from the preparations to the first dance.

Have the beautiful bridesmaid bouquets and glorious table centrepieces triggered your hayfever? Not a problem, I’ve got tissues and allergen tablets.  Had one too many glasses of champagne at the post-ceremony drinks reception? Relax, I’ve some got painkillers for you.

I make it my mission to ensure you have the most stress-free and fun-filled wedding day possible.

I’ll even supply clear umbrellas and wellies if the good old London weather isn’t looking good. If that happens then please don’t worry, it’s a wonderful opportunity to have fun and get really creative! Come rain or shine, I’ve got your back.

Having spent three years at college in London, intensively studying (and being critiqued on my own) photography, wedding-specific challenges such as low light, bad weather or limited time only result in me raising my game and producing something truly magical.

London also has endless locations for shooting in and / or sheltering from less than ideal conditions. How about warming up with a cuddle in a classic red telphone box, or getting arty with some portraits on the underground?

Good old London eh? Even when it is wet it is still wonderful!

So whether you’re based in London, or live further afield (destination weddings are also always something I’m happy to be part of), contact me now to get that ball rolling on creating memories of your (guaranteed to be) incredible wedding day.

Oh, by the way; I do a little happy dance when your message hits my inbox and always get back to enquiries within 24 hours.

The reason for this super speedy response is not just because I pride myself on being a London wedding photographer with exceptional customer service, it’s also because I’m genuinely excited about meeting new couples and finding out about their plans (some might call it being nosey)!

You are one click away from making my day (and from me making yours super special too).
