This year is proving more than tricky to arrange engagement photo shoots, the weather has been so unpredictable! This was the third time I believe we had tried and thank goodness the weather gods were looking down on us.
Ruth and Richard are holding they're wedding reception at Chiddingstone Castle in Kent following a church wedding. This is a stunning venue that offers lots of photographic possibilities. We decided it would also be a great location for the pre wedding shoot.
What a day! Mountains Country House is located in Hildenborough, Kent. It proved to be a stunning wedding venue and the perfect place for Ryan and Sarah to get married.
Port Lympne Safari Park is not only a stunning wedding venue, it's a fully operational safari park! This has to up there with the best for offering bride and grooms a truly unique wedding day. The park is part of the Aspinall Foundation, located near Romney Marsh in Kent and offers a beutiful grade II listed mansion and gardens. The views are panoramic and stunning to say the least.
What better way to celebrate you birthday than to hire a huge last house in Goudhurst, Kent and invite you nearest and dearest for a weekend long party!! Thats exactly what Sarah done, and what a night it was. It was a fancy dress party and the theme was the letter 'S'.
I photographed Joe and Celia's wedding in April last year but we never got a chance to do the pre wedding shoot due to rubbish english weather!
This was my first time meeting Peter and Alex so we started at the coffee shop in Scotney castle to discuss ideas, likes and dislikes. After a good natter we set off into the grounds to take some photos.
The wedding was held at a local church with the reception at the Royal Berkshire Hotel. The weather stayed dry for us if a little cold.
The styling for the photos was modern, clean and timeless.
Very exciting! Next month will see Stephen and I shooting a wedding at the Royal Berkshire Hotel in Ascot. This will be the first time I have shot there and to say I am looking forward to it is an understatment! This Queen Anne mansion is a truly grand building that will set the scene for what I am sure will be a fantastic wedding.
Boreham House is located in Chelmsford, Essex. In the years I have been a wedding photographer I don't think I have seen a more stunning driveway at any wedding venue! The lake that leads your eye to the front of the main building seems to go on forever.
The High Rocks Hotel in Tunbridge Wells, Kent is a very popular wedding venue and being only 25 minutes from my house makes bookings there very welcomed! Last summer saw us shooting 3 weddings there over two consecutive weekends, we really did feel like part of the furniture! To my knowledge this is the only wedding venue in Kent that you can arrive to by a steam train!
Joe and Celia were married at St Julians Club in Sevenoaks, Kent. I was not familiar with this venue until Joe and Celia contacted me but what a gem it is!
These photos were shot at St Lawrence Church in Chobham near Woking in Surrey. This had to be the hottest day of last year! It was sweltering!
Abby is a professional dancer and needed some photos for her portfolio. So after discussing it and looking at allot of images for inspiration we worked out our plan of attack.
Ben and Reshma tied the knot at Wandsworth Register office in London and held the wedding reception at their home also in Wandsworth. It was a real blend of culture with Reshma being indian and Ben american.
Neil and Gemma were married at Pinner Church in Middlesex with the reception being held at the Homestead, Harefield.
So when I was invited to join a trek in the sahara desert and also raise money for GOSH (Great Ormond Street Hospital) at the same time, I jumped at the chance! The mountains you can see in the photos are actually part of the Atlas mountain range, looking to your left and seeing snow capped mountains and to your right the blistering hot desert was surreal to say the least!
A winter christmas wedding at the Maidens Tower, Leeds Castle, Kent. Thats exactly what Stuart and Sarah decided to do after looking at lots of different wedding venues.
St Augustines Priory, Bilsington is nestled in the heart of the kent countryside near Ashford. A stunning wedding venue offering bride and grooms a beautiful venue and grounds to celebrate their big day.
Kings Place is located at 90 York Way in London, a stones throw from Kings Cross railway station. When Oliver and Jodie booked us to photograph their wedding there I was very curious to see what this central London wedding venue had to offer.
The Warren is a wedding venue I have not worked at before so when Sarah Jayne and Lance booked me as their wedding photographer I thought I would drive up to Bromley and take a look.
Leeds Castle is simply put, one stunning wedding venue! This was the first of two weddings I photographed there last year. The venue offers bride and grooms three buildings which are available for Weddings, The Gate House, The Maidens Tower and the Castle itself.
Making a speech at a wedding is a very daunting task for anyone.
When Tom Fletcher from McFly tied the know I suppose it was inevitable that there would have to be some singing involved. I for one though was blown away with the delivery of it and think it makes for one of the most entraining groom speeches I have ever heard!
You may or may not know but Christopher Martin Photography ran a competition last year for one lucky couple to win their wedding photography. 2012 was an amazing year for us and we wanted to give something back so to speak.
We had a fantastic response and after the voting had closed and the votes counted. The lucky winners were Ruth and Richard.
Rich and Hayley tied the knot at the Priory Church of Saint Bartholomew the Great adjacent to smithfield market in London. It is Londons oldest church with its history dating back to 1123. Quite a few hollywood stars have visited St Bartholomew's as its been used as a set for numerous movies, including Robin Hood, Sherlock Holmes and Four Wedding and a Funeral. This was my first time shooting a wedding here and will stay in my memory for a very long time.
Sticking to my new years resolution to get the website up to date with all the amazing weddings I have worked on throughout 2012, here is another for you!
