Shriya & Sumit’s Wedding At Addington Palace

I photographed Sumit and Shriya’s wedding alongside my talented colleague Andy Rapkins recently.

Both Andy and I specialise in reportage wedding photography and whilst there were still a few obligatory group photographs on the wedding day, Sumit and Shriya really wanted the coverage to be documentary in style – quite a contrast to traditional asian wedding photography.

Asian weddings are absolutely ideal for documentary wedding photography as there is just so much going on – so much emotion, so many characters, so fast-paced.

I’m so pleased with our coverage. Shriya & Sumit were just incredible to work with. Here are just a few of my very favourites from the day.

Jason & Julie’s Wedding at Priston Mill in Bath

Wedding photography at Priston Mill Bath 001
I photographed Jason and Julie’s wedding recently in the stunning village of Priston on the outskirts of Bath.

Their church service took place at St Luke and Andrews which was swiftly followed by a very relaxed drinks reception in the tythe barn on the Priston Mill grounds – a superbly-run venue I’ve got to know very well over the last few years.

My coverage was, as always, documentary in style and this approach suited the wedding perfectly. Jason’s family had flown in from South Africa for the wedding and so it was the first time many of the couple’s relatives had met, some really nice moments to discreetly document.

Here are just a few of my very favorites from this delightful little wedding day.

In This Moment | It’s Time

A nervous few moments immediately before Nathalia walked to her ceremony in the chapel on the beautiful grounds of Babington House in Frome, Wiltshire.

I love the moment captured here but also the tones of this image are just stunning, it prints beautifully.

In This Moment | Take five

Karl and Orla’s wedding was just beautiful, I have so many images from their 2013 wedding which still have pride of place in my portfolio. For me though, this image is by far my favourite.

It was created during a ten minute ‘walk and talk’ halfway through the drinks reception – a simple process to help in the creation of exceptionally natural portraiture. For just a few moments Karl and Orla sat along the edge of the field, it was a particularly sunny, dry August that year so the conditions were ideal.

For me, this image represents what this stage of the day is about – taking a moment and spending a precious 5 to 10 minutes with each other before the second half of the day kicks off.

Love this.
