Should you polish your wedding? An odd question, I know – but think with me for a moment. In these days of Instagramming our lives and sharing only the carefully planned, tidy, and perfect sides of ourselves I kind of miss seeing photos that make me feel something. A gorgeous line of bridesmaids, a pristine wedding gown or a messy bouquet are all glorious to see on insta… but amongst all the wedding pretty, I love seeing a photo which will make me laugh out loud, scroll back up for another look or even identify with the people in the frame. And that has to be a real, spontaneous, unpolished wedding photograph.
It’s why I’m such a big fan of York Place Studios. They’re not about the pretty details – they capture the story of your day in the most fascinating compositions. They’re the wedding photographers most wedding photographers would choose to photograph their day. They shoot with real expertise and a flash of humour. They’re brilliant; their brides and grooms LOVE them – and they keep my little wedding blogging feet firmly on the ground.
Here’s gorgeous Chelsea and Antony – a fabulous couple full of love and fun – and their family and friends having what definitely looks to be their best day ever. The venue is London’s Morden Hall, the images are all by documentary wedding photographers York Place Studios. Look carefully. Watch out for the little moments. They’re all there, beautifully composed, and they’re exactly what I love to see on wedding blogs.

We absolutely love the work of Dom & Liam at York Place Studios. They photographed our wedding from start to finish at Morden Hall (London) in July this year.
We have had so many comments on our wedding photos – people just absolutely love the style. They managed to capture all the happiness, joy and laughter of the entire day.
Not only that but they made us and all our guests feel so comfortable – they literally blended in and worked their magic.
We highly recommend their work – you won’t regret booking them! ~ Chelsea & Antony
“The glorious thing about wedding photography (in fact photography in general) is that you can give the same camera to a bunch of photographers with exactly the same opportunities – same venue, same light, same set of people and they will produce a completely different set of images with a completely unique story, composition and approach. For us, we look for character, clean and clever composition, a certain rawness and real feeling to the image, humour, connections and a truth of the people and of life. Chelsea and Antony’s wedding at Morden Hall in London was a treasure trove of those moments; from the minute we arrived in the morning to the end of the night it was an absolute delight.” ~ Dom & Liam, York Place Studios
