Memorable Wedding in Richmond Park: Jeff & Matt

Jeff & Matt are two very special and unique people. Jeff is from Brazil and Matt is from the UK, and together they make very charming and handsome couple. As soon as you meet them their warm and friendly personalities make you feel instantly at ease.

For their venue Jeff and Matt chose the lovely Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. The beautiful simplicity of the lodge with the elegant touches they added created a perfect stage for the memorable and emotionally charged day. The ceremony and reception were full of excitement with loved ones from all over coming together to celebrate and honor them. Even some of Jeff’s relatives from Brazil were able to attend, including his sister and brother-in-law with their children.

After the ceremony we were fortunate to steal a moment for a quick walk through the park together. Not only were we able to capture some wonderful couples shots against the autumn background, but we even caught a glimpse of some very majestic looking deer!

Just before dinner, guests enjoyed a caipirinha - a nice touch and thoughtful nod to Jeff’s Brazilian heritage. As the night went on Jeff & Matt spent time laughing and playing with the many children in attendance while the Gillan Edgar Band played live music in the background.

Many old friends were in attendance and it was obvious by their speeches that these two leave a special mark on everyone they meet. There was so much love and support expressed, it was truly moving. I can’t say enough good things about this wedding, it was absolutely fantastic and I feel so lucky to have been a part of capturing these moments on film!

Traditional wedding in Christchurch: Katherin and Christian

The wedding season has finally started to wind down and there it is - my first quiet weekend!

And of course I couldn’t stay away from my laptop and quickly found myself going through this summer’s weddings and reliving all those moments again - sometimes funny, sometimes emotional, occasionally tiring (weddings on 3 consecutive days!) but always happy! Looking forward to blog all those beautiful weddings over the winter months to come!

And for now I’d like to post a few photos from the beautiful Christchurch wedding of Katherin and Chris.

Destination wedding photographer in Italy: Ksenia and Alex, Lago Maggiore

Wedding days; like any other day, are capable of delivering unexpected surprises—like rain. In some cases a change in the weather can provide unexpected beauty; the perfect lighting, and a wonderful memory that will stay with you forever. This was the case for Ksenia & Alex.

Ksenia and Alex took a change of weather in stride. Their easy-going and warm personalities allowed me to capture unique, soft portraits—even after getting caught under a downpour in their wedding outfits!

Truly, a little bit of rain could not steal the show from these two. Ksenia and Alex chose the magnificent setting of Lago Maggiore and its islands and the beautiful venue; Hotel des Iles Boromees, where Ernest Hemingway used to stay, was a perfect backdrop for their vows.

Emma and Lee wedding in Islington Town Hall

Emma and Lee were together for 11 years but the haven't really planned this wedding in advance - the thought of making their union official came suddenly just a few months before the big day! They were booking some holidays when the travel agent asked them if this is going to be their honeymoon - and they thought that it might as well be one! :)

After the initial excitement they realised that they need to arrange everything a very short notice, and the grim reality of London wedding industry is that the best venues and suppliers get fully booked really quickly.

However they were lucky and it all started coming together very soon - elegant and simple dress from Sanyukta Shrestha, dainty accessories from Ana Maria Bufnila - and the stunning flowers from Anna Collins completed the beautiful vision.

Emma and the girls got ready at the Town Hall hotel, from where we headed to Islington Town Hall for the ceremony. Emma and Lee decided to keep the ceremony intimate with just family - and it felt really cozy, personal, and special!  One of the most memorable moments was when Emma's granfather's wife, who couldn't come to the ceremony, just connected by Skype! It is truly extraordinary how technology can change people's lives these days and how close we can all be despite the challenges of geography!

After the ceremony we took some pictures in the nearby park as it was getting darker very quickly, and then joined the guests at the exquisite dinner reception by the candlelight at the Chamber room of the Town Hall Hotel.

It was very important for Emma and Lee to share their joy with all their friends, so the following Saturday they threw a big party at their new apartment, where I also popped by to take a few photographs.

It was truly a memorable day (or rather two days!) - a big thank you Emma and Lee for inviting me warmly into your circle of love and care! It was an honor and I look forward to what the future has in store for you both. Much Love x

Anna and Senya, Saint Petersburg

Anna and Senya were married last year and wanted to celebrate their anniversary in beautiful Saint Petersburg, their new home. They are such a creative couple with a real sense of beauty: Anna studies theatre management and Senya is a composer. It was a pleasure to go for a walk alongside the majestic canals and beautiful palaces, visit the stunning Lutheran church of Saint Peter and Paul and finally warm ourselves with a coffee and a traditional russian doughnut called "pyshka" in a small place that sells them since my childhood. If you ever come to Saint Petersburg, you have to try them!
