Amy and Matt had their informal wedding at the fab Stoke Newington Town Hall with a reception at Clapton Country Club in London last summer. I love London weddings - there are so many awesome venues for a fun and relaxed day. Clapton Country Club is one of my faves!
Bek and Tim got married on chilly but beautiful Spring day in Dublin. Yes folks, I got to go to the land of Guinness, and a place special in my heart since it’s where most of my family hail from - Ireland! I love pub weddings, and a proper Irish pub like the Storehouse was an amazing setting. In the heart of Temple Bar with beautiful brickwork, and colourful graffiti back drops a-plenty on it’s neighbouring streets. I danced my socks off and laughed a lot too, it was so much fun.
I love shooting in London, and the industrial setting of Clapton Country Club is probably one of my fave places for party fun times. With a late 4pm ceremony in November that meant it got dark quickly and the party started sooner, going on until well past 1am because Phil bribed the band to stay later (legend). Being fans of good food, music, coffee and beer it was basically my own wonderland too and I was so glad I was there till the not so bitter end (unless you count the beer, the best of ways of course).
Tim & Bec are eloping to Ireland next year and since we all hail from Birmingham we met up last week for a pre wedding photography shoot (and some beers). I bloomin' love shooting in Digbeth and it's ace for a few drinks too! Tim and Bec love hanging out and going to gigs in Digbeth so it was the obvious choice for an engagement shoot.
People often ask me what I LOVE to photograph most, and honestly my answer is always the same: people. They are why photographing weddings is the best thing ever to me, there's so much to shoot and no two are the same, even at the same venue. I love all weddings, no matter what kind. That said, I do have a wedding bucket list of sorts - here's a few off the top of my head. . .
