Mary & Will’s Bingham hotel wedding was immensely fun to be a part of, They took over the Bingham Hotel in Richmond. It’s a lovely boutique hotel in a Georgian townhouse (With lovely bow windows, as I was informed by Will’s dad!) on the banks of the Thames – I’d not shot a wedding here before, so it was a nice treat! I love photographing weddings in Surrey, there’s so many awesome venues, so I’m always discovering something new!
Mary & Will (& their family & friends!) are unbelievably friendly, chilled out, relaxed & so easy to get along with, so it was alot of fun to be a part of their day. They also know how to let their hair down in mega fashion, as you’ll see from the dancing…
Their wedding took place in late November at 4pm – so a proper winter wedding to give my low light photography skills a workout – but was a lot of fun!
For the photographers out there, these images were the first set I’ve processed with VSCO, it produces a slightly different look to my images, & I’m still trying to find a rhythm with it, but it’s a nice way of working & fits into my workflow er… splendidly! As good a word as any, better than some in fact.
Helen & Adam got married at the fantastic St Michaels Manor a lovely hotel in At. Albans, The weather was lovely for a few minutes here & there – but not so good the rest of the time, but the rain couldn’t dampen the spirits of anyone.
I love weddings that all take place in the same location, not having to travel between multiple venues always seems to make the day more relaxed (for me as well as the guests!) – although after having spent the day with Helen, Adam & their friends & families, I couldn’t imagine it being anything but a relaxed, fun day, regardless of the backdrop!
Weston house weddings are great, not only is it a really nice venue, but it’s only twenty minutes drive from my house =) Wiston House wasn’t the star of the show this day though, that honour went to Lucinda, our lovely bride & Malcolm – our ultra cool groom. why is he so cool you say? he wore batman cufflinks. enough said.
Lucinda is the kind of bride thats been planning her wedding since she was a little girl, She’d picked out her church from an early age & sang with the choir, to make sure they were up to spec for the ceremony (they were!)
It’s genuinely been a pleasure to be their photographer – from their pre wedding photography session earlier this year, to sharing their wedding day – It’s been great getting to know them, so it’s my pleasure to share these photos =)
The day started in Shoreham, at Lucinda’s parent house:
(but don’t worry Anne (lucinda’s mum), I’ve kept the curler photos to a minimum =) It was a fabulous look though…)
Karen & Adam had their wedding in September at Horsted Place, in Sussex – I met Karen & Adam through their friends Amanda & Glenn, whose wedding I shot last year, So I knew what sort of crowd to expect at their wedding – I’m not sure I’ve ever met such a lovely, lively, fun, crazy ( & totally fabulous!) bunch! So I went into K&A’s wedding with certain expectations; expectations that were totally, completely & utterly surpassed!
I had my buddy SJP shooting with me & as always, it was brilliant to work with him. Thanks to Karen & Adam for having us along for the ride =)
