Weddings are the most wonderful of days; a tapestry of moments is woven together from the smiles, laughter and love of friends and family – and this is true no matter where you choose to marry. Rob and Michele chose a London city centre location for their day. They walked to the venue together (I’d love to see more couples doing this… I LOVE that nervous excitement can be shared!) and from that moment onwards the day is blissfully happy.

I loved photographing this city wedding in London: I always enjoy photographing the life, colours, grandeur and contrast of a city wedding. This wedding was so packed full of memorable moments, I loved that the grooms decided to walk to their venue together through the back streets of London to Westminster. It also allowed me to photograph their walk from a distance, as they shared some fun and intimate moments with the city as a backdrop.


When it comes to city chic weddings, I think Chester is one of the very best locations for its unique and charming character… and a stroll through the city is almost obligatory for your wedding album! Gorgeous Verity and Tom made the most of this super location with a 2 day wedding celebration: day 1 was an intimate ceremony and lunch with close family, and day 2 is coming up tomorrow!

I do love the idea of an intimate marriage followed by a party the day after… it sounds and looks perfect! I also love the idea of taking the pressure off the main wedding day by having a very personal ceremony first. Verity & Tom got married on a Friday at Chester registry office, followed by a lovely stroll down to the River Dee for some fun portraits with their family and friends and then lunch and drinks in the sunshine!

Rosie & Jon are amazing. Their relaxed city wedding is gorgeous: full of pretty details contrasting beautifully against the built up backdrop – and their reception venue is perfect.

Rosie’s dress is out of this world: she looks stunning and I was convinced she’d bought from one of our top designers… until she told me her mother made it for her – “My heart swells at the thought of how much love she put into that dress. It’s the most beautiful thing I’ve ever worn.

Rosie and Jon found most of their suppliers online, using wedding blogs and Pinterest for inspiration. Their photographer – lovely Jonny Donovan Photography – was one of the best online discoveries:


The gorgeous couple told me not only did they love their photographer, all of their guests did as well! And the images speak for themselves… I think they’re fabulous.

It’s movie time! Hannah and Joseph had a gorgeous, London-themed wedding with contemporary styling and beautiful details: I love so many things. The bouquet is divine; Hannah’s Claire Mischevani dress is exquisite; there are tube maps and big red buses, spectacular flowers and an impressive reception venue. Hannah’s also written a lovely wedding report for us and told me, “I know it is a massive cliche but our wedding day was the most incredible, memorable and happiest day of our lives. We couldn’t have wished for it to have been more perfect. With our closest friends and family l there to celebrate with us, it really was our perfect day.

The theme of the wedding was ‘London’. We had iconic London image themes throughout the day, tube map table plans, London buses to transport the guests from church to venue and oyster card holders as favours and of course it was based in London.
