Last week I photographed Sally and Ed who have recently got engaged. We based the shoot in old Southampton, using some of the known historical land marks and buildings as a backdrop. Below are some of my highlights from the shoot. Enjoy!
We’ve got one more wedding shoot as 2012 draws to a close. But there’s still a few more wedding highlights to blog from what has been a fantastic year! This beautiful image was taken just over two weeks ago at Lauren and Brett’s wedding.
Today’s final post is taken from Kelly and Euan’s winter wedding at Lainston House in Winchester, Hampshire. It’s one of my favourite venues, and easily one of the finest in the area. They were married just last weekend. Huge congratulations to them both! I couldn’t decide between two images, so I’ve uploaded both for their sneak peek. The image above was taken on the grand drive looking up the house, how cool is that old Ford Zephyr!? The shot below is a simply magical! Want to know how I did it?
A month ago Jamie and Dani were married at Woodlands Lodge in the New Forest. I achieved the effect in this photo by looking through the golden leaves of a nearby tree. It made the moment even more intimate.
The third sneak peek was taken at Emily and Rich’s wedding at Horton Heaths East Horton Golf Club. We spent about 10 minutes out on the greens and nearby lake. I loved this one with the sun just peeping over the golden tree tops.
I’ve got four fab wedding highlights to upload today all taken in the last five weeks. The first is taken from Sue and Dave’s wedding at Audleys Wood Hotel in Basingstoke, Hampshire. I hadn’t planned on the sudden gust of wind, but it introduced a completely new dynamic to the shot with Sue’s veil blowing across. I loved it so much I’ve chosen it for their sneak peek.
Hello to all my blog fans out there, it’s been a while since my last post (about a month I think). I’ve got some great updates going live throughout the day today. To kick things off here’s the long awaited third part of Heidi and Stuarts UK and Vietnamese wedding highlights. Part three showcases the wedding celebration in Hanoi, Vietnam. The morning preparations began in the hotel. After which we then headed to a local temple. The architecture was stunning! Here I captured a number of group photos. Abbey Road? All the ladies present who were in traditional dress. The wedding celebration was back at the hotel, where they enjoyed speeches, food and good company. Take a look at part 1 and part 2.
On the 6th October Jen and Lee ‘tied the knot’ at the East Close hotel in Christchurch. There were so many highlights for me at this wedding. It was a genuine pleasure to be their photographer, they were so much fun to work with! Again it was very difficult to select one image for the sneak peek. This was one of my favs from day, but please do check back soon for plenty more gorgeous photos from this wedding. I’ve added the image again (this is how it’s meant to look). I’m having a slight issue with compression on the website header image.
Almost three weeks ago now (where does the time go?!) was the wedding of my cousin Jessica and Lawrence. You may remember their pre-wedding shoot preview blogged back in July this year. They’re reception was at Rookesbury Park, Wickham. What a gorgeous venue! It’s always nice to be asked to photograph for friends and family, I somehow felt a little extra pressure but thoroughly enjoyed the day. Above is my chosen sneak peek highlight, it was so hard to pick out just one so I’ve added a second below. I look forward to showing you all some more soon.
Two weeks ago I uploaded a selection of images from Stuart and Heidi’s UK wedding, at the Larmer Tree Gardens from earlier this year. A month after the UK wedding we flew out to Vietnam for a second celebration. The first half of the trip was a three day cruise in Ha Long Bay. It’s one of the World Heritage Site’s and seven natural wonders of the world – it was breathtaking! The bay features thousands of limestone karsts and isles in various sizes and shapes. On the last day of the cruise at sun down I took some photos of the newlyweds on the traditional looking Vietnamese ‘junk’ cruise ship. Here are some of my highlights (I was shooting from another boat to get the first few photos): We then left the ship, and got a small boat to one of the limestone islands with it’s own beach. It was an incredible experience for me. I’m so grateful to them both for the opportunity to photograph such a unique and beautiful wedding celebration. Part 3 is still to follow – Hanoi.
