Northampton Wedding Photographer – Erinna & Rob’s Wedding Story

Wedding Stories

Northampton Wedding Photography

When Erinna & Rob asked me to be the wedding photographer for their wedding up in Northampton, I was absolutely thrilled. I had known Rob since we were both about 5 or 6 years old but I hadn’t seen him in about 10 years or so. So not only was it a great privilege to document their wedding day but it also meant I got to catch up with a number of (not so) old faces from the past.

Waltham Abbey Essex Wedding – Annique & Lee

Wedding Stories

The Street Photography Wedding Photographer

As a street photography wedding photographer, Annique and Lee’s wedding day in Waltham Abbey, Essex, was a fantastic day for unobtrusively capturing some great candid and natural moments. My street photography approach to weddings really does allow me to document the emotions, the humour and the real stories that happen when a couple can simply concentrate on their day – and this really was the case with this Waltham Abbey wedding in Essex.

Street Photography Wedding Photographer

Some street photography in London's Trafalgar Square, taken by multiple award winning London wedding photographer Darren Lehane

Street photography taken in London’s Trafalgar Square, back in April when I hooked up with groom-to-be Nathan for some street photography fun.

Being Tanya and Nathan’s documentary wedding photographer, at their wedding at the Barns at Hunsbury in Northampton, came about as a result of my wedding photography.  Unbeknown to me, Nathan had been following my personal street photography from afar.

In one of those funny quirks of fate that life sometimes throws up, he mentioned my street photography to a fellow work colleague who turned out to be my uncle. Long story short, as a result a few messages passed between myself, uncle and Nathan and before I knew it I was booked to shoot Tanya and Nathan’s wedding at the wonderful Barns at Hunsbury – but not before I’d hooked with Nathan to shoot some street photography one Saturday in London.

Wedding Morning Preparations

The Barns at Hunsbury Wedding Photography Northamptonshire

As usual I arrived early on the wedding morning at Tanya and Nathan’s home in Northampton.  As anyone who follows me regularly, I love this part of the day. Everyone is still relaxed so there’s plenty of laughter and fun but, of course, apprehension for the day ahead can start increasing, leading to nerves and sometimes a few tears. Tanya’s bridal preparations were no exception. It was slightly unusual in that I had never met Tanya ahead of the day itself. However, I think it would be fair to say that we really clicked and definitely had a good few laughs together about things. I think it helps that I carry my sense of humour through a wedding day, it keeps people more relaxed.

It was the first time I have shot a wedding at the Barns at Hunsbury. It’s in a lovely setting with a really rural feel without being out in the middle of the countryside somewhere. So it’s no surprise that it’s considered one of the best wedding venues in Northampton.

As I expected the wedding ceremony was full of laughs. Tanya looked gorgeous in her dress and even Nathan scrubbed up well and I definitely loved the brown tweed jackets!

It’s Just How Kids Are

The Barns at Hunsbury Wedding Photography Northamptonshire

I love weddings full of kids! Maybe I’m being selfish, but as a documentary wedding photography I love all the crazy fun, spontaneous moments and a suit emotions they can create on the day. It’s these kind of moments that make great photos for a couple’s wedding story.  So with plenty of kids at Tanya and Nathan’s wedding it was such a fun and enjoyable wedding to cover and a real one to remember!

Gipsy Hill London Wedding Photographer – Cynthia & Julian

Wedding Stories

A South London Wedding Story

As a London wedding photographer – and a south London one at that – it made a nice change to be shooting a wedding literally on my doorstep. I’ve known Cynthia for a few years now, so I was delighted and thrilled when she asked me to photograph her wedding at Christ Church in Gipsy Hill, Lambeth.

Cynthia’s roots are firmly Caribbean, with her family hailing from the island of Barbados. Julian, on the other hand, is of Polish extract via south London, so it was a wedding with a real mix of cultures.

Both Cynthia and Julian were getting ready together, at their home by Norwood Park – along with all of Cynthia’s children, grandchildren, brothers and other family members! So the preparations were crazy, hectic and chaotic…but all in fun and enjoyable way.  Given my natural wedding photography approach it was fantastic to be able to blend into the background and document so many fun and emotional moments.

Christ Church Gipsy Hill Wedding Photography

The wedding ceremony took place in the modern Anglican Christ Church in Gipsy Hill.  The ceremony was led by the Reverend Jonathan Croucher.  I do have to admit it was the first wedding I’ve ever photographed where the groom was late getting to the church. Still, it didn’t matter too much, as Cynthia herself was almost 45 minutes late arriving – but that only added to the fun and hectic nature of the day.

The service was relaxed and happy, with plenty of sunlight flooding in through the high glass windows of the Church’s modern architecture. Of course, with lots of children amongst the guests, there were plenty of candid moments and natural emotions to capture with my photojournalistic wedding photography.

Tears, Laughter & Funky Dance Moves

The evening reception took place in the St Margaret Clitherow church hall, just a short drive away in Gipsy Hill.  Throughout the speeches and formal dances there were some real outpourings of emotion – showing just how loved and special the couple were.  This then gave way to the evening disco, where things got significantly more funky and upbeat – there were even some choreographed group dances. Again this was perfect for photojournalistic wedding photography and ensuring Cynthia and Julian got a wedding story they can enjoy and share for decades to come!

It was definitely a wedding that was fun and a pleasure to document,  I’m sure you’ll agree, the small number of selected wedding photos, here and below, show just how fun the wedding day was.

Littleton House Wedding Photography – Shepperton Studios, Surrey

Wedding Stories

When Chloe and Dan told me they were getting married at a film studio I thought they were joking. I mean it’s only celebs and Hollywood A listers who would be so extravagant, surely?  But Littleton House is a Surrey wedding venue that is set within the Shepperton Studios, itself part of the renowned Pinewood film studios.

A 17th century manor house set within the hangers of a film studio is certainly one of the more unique and unusual wedding venues I have ever had the pleasure to shoot at…but it’s that uniqueness that makes it one of the best Surrey wedding venues.

Ashford Bridal Preparations

Littleton House Surrey Wedding Photography

As usual I turned up at Dan and Chloe’s home in Ashford, Surrey a couple of hours before the wedding ceremony at Littleton House, in order to document the bridal preparations. It would be fair to say it was one of the more relaxed bridal preparations I’ve captured, with plenty of smiles and laughs – although there were a few tears that flowed once Chloe got into her beautiful wedding dress.

A Different Perspective

Littleton House Surrey Wedding Photography

It was then just a short drive over to Shepperton, for the main part of the wedding day at Littleton House, where Dan and his groomsmen had already arrived. One of the great things about the venue is the chance to shoot down from an upper floor, directly above where the wedding ceremony takes place – and of course as wedding photographer I took full advantage of that.

A Walk Through The Woods

Littleton House Surrey Wedding Photography

Another lovely thing about Littleton House for wedding photography is the opportunity to take some portraits in a small woods, beside a stream, just at the back of the studios. This was perfect to get some more formal portraits of the happy couple, before returning back to the main house for the meal, speeches and evening wedding reception.

A Unique Surrey Wedding Venue

Littleton House Surrey Wedding Photography

As a wedding photojournalist a wedding a Littleton House provides so many opprtunities to capture all the natural emotions and genuine moments that make up the wedding story, against such a fantastic and unique Surrey wedding venue.

Wedding Fun & The Damage Done

Littleton House Surrey Wedding Photography

And, despite the fact I managed to smash the electronic viewfinder on one of my Olympus OMD EM5 camera bodies and chipped the glass of my Olympus Pro 7-14mm zoom lens during the day, it was a fanastic day at such a great wedding venue in Surrey.

I hope you enjoy a small selection of the wedding photography from their day and please do feel free to share across social media.

Spurs, Kids and Losing One’s Head – Amy & Mark’s Wedding Story

Wedding Stories

Dodmoor House, Northamptonshire Wedding Photography

Travelling up to Northamptonshire for Amy and Mark’s wedding at Dodmoor House, I knew a few things. I knew the wedding was going to very child friendly, but that was fine – as I’ve said before I think kids make some of the best photo opportunities at wedding. I knew there was likely to be some emotional tears and a lot of laughs.

Dodmoor House Wedding Photography Northamptonshire

But the one thing I wasn’t quite expecting was a wedding with a Tottenham Hotspur FC theme throughout. The colours for the day were predominantly blue and white (to match Spurs’ team colours), tables named after Spurs players, a street sign for the Spurs stadium, White Hart Lane, on the head table and even Amy wearing a Tottenham Hotspur garter beneath her wedding dress!  Being a West Ham United fan myself – who share a fierce rivalry with Spurs – it was an extra challenge for me!  Then again, I managed to get through a previous wedding with a lot of Millwall fans in one piece (Millwall are West Ham’s closest rivals!) – so I was used to keeping my head down and getting on with it. After all, that’s part of being a wedding photojournalist!

Dodmoor House Wedding Photography Northamptonshire

Amy is a proud mum to Mikey and also a child minder, so she was very keen that I captured a lot of photos of the kids throughout the wedding day. Of course, kids are less bothered about cameras being pointed at them than us adults, so they always offer loads of great moments and emotions for a wedding photojournalist to document.

So whether it playing hide and seek, showing of their football skills and techniques, being flung around the dancefloor or just standing there looking cute and innocent I certainly managed to capture a lot of striking children images.

Dodmoor House Wedding Photography Northamptonshire

The other funny re-occurring theme of Amy and Mark’s wedding was the number of times I took photos of friends or relatives seeming losing their heads up inside Amy’s beautiful wedding dress. Of course, this was all about some delicate and technical adjustments that were required, ahem, behind the scenes, but this did present some amusing and humorous photo opportunities, which may have not always been fully appreciated at the time…but I’m sure all can see the funny side now.

Dodmoor House Wedding Photography Northamptonshire

Of course, the wedding was full of the usual emotions – from excited laughter through to some touching and tearful moments.  This was all set against the beautiful backdrop of Dodmoor House in rural Northamptonshire. It really is a lovely wedding venue with its converted farm barns ideal for an intimate wedding.

Charlene and David’s Wedding Story

I should start off by apologising for having not posted here for a while.  This has been a result of being so busy with weddings, pre-wedding shoots and a short break in Budapest. Anyway, I hope to make amends with a few posts over the next few days.

Back at the beginning of April I had the absolute pleasure of shooting Charlene and David’s wedding photography at the Holy Ghost Roman Catholic Church in Luton, Bedfordshire.

Charlene David Holy Ghost Luton Wedding

The bridal preparations took place at a friend’s house and Charlene was positively glowing and radiant with excitement and anticipation for the big day ahead. Given my wedding reportage approach I love this part of the day for the whole range of emotions and moments it can throw up. There was a slight incident with the zip of a bridesmaid’s dress that just simply wouldn’t do up despite everyone tugging at or applying vaseline, etc.  Eventually the dress was done up…but it had resulted in the bridal party getting to the Holy Ghost quite late…as is the bride’s prerogative.

David, who is originally from Dublin in Ireland, was waiting patiently at the church oblivious to all the drama with “zipgate”.  Surrounded by family and friends, most who had traveled over from Ireland (and slightly farther afield), he was the personification of a calm, relaxed groom.

Charlene David Holy Ghost Luton Wedding

Being a Catholic service, the marriage ceremony was longer than most but definitely demonstrated the seriousness of love and marriage.  Once Charlene and David were happily announced as man and wife it was off to a local park in Luton for a small number of portraits, before we then headed back to the Holy Ghost Church Hall for the wedding reception and evening entertainment.

Given the large contingent of Irish guests I think it would be a fair reflection to say the wedding reception was celebrated with much fun, laughter and vigour!  It was a lovely wedding day all round, which is no surprise given that Charlene and David are such a lovely couple.

Jodi & Simon’s Wonderful Wedding Story in the heart of the Capital City

I’d really been looking forward to Jodi and Simon’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency Churchill in Portman Square, London. When we had met originally it was clear from the very outset that they both “got” and wanted a documentary wedding photography approach to capture all the real moments and  genuine emotions of their unique wedding story. They were very relaxed about portraits and group shots – the important thing for them was documenting their wedding day as it unfolded naturally.  This was all music to my ears, as telling a wedding story is central to all I do, so I couldn’t wait to get started.

And what a wedding story it was.  Even looking back now, I am amazed how much they packed into their day – it’s no secret that I ended up with more photos from their wedding than any other I have shot.  Jodi is from a Jewish family, and whilst not strictly a Jewish wedding, the day was full of fun, laughter and, of course, much love that did follow some of the sequences of a Jewish wedding. Without doubt it packed in lots of emotion and intensity and allowed me to capture, what one may think of as, more traditional Jewish wedding photography.

The Hyatt Regency Churchill, just off of Oxford Street,  is certainly a lavish wedding venue, with big beautiful rooms for the pre-wedding preparations right through to a glitzy dancefloor for the evening, complete with a big cabaret band to entertain the guests.

It was a fantastic day throughout and I really do hope you enjoy some of he small selection of photos that follow, from this wonderful wedding story.

Northamptonshire Wedding Photography – Lois & Dan

Wedding Stories

Another older wedding I am catching up on posting to my website.  This one is from Lois and Dan’s wedding St Luke Church in Kislingbury, Northamptonshire and then for the wedding reception at the Village Institute in Upper Harlestone, Northamptonshire back in 2014.

What was lovely about being the wedding photographer for Lois and Dan, is that I lived next door to Lois’ mum Fiona and auntie Ginny for a few years when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I then reconnected with Ginny about 40 years later via Facebook who then recommended me to Lois and Dan. A year after their wedding, I also went on to shoot Lois’ brother Phil’s wedding to Emily in 2015. It was so lovely to carry on such a connection with the family after all this time.

Whilst I documented Lois getting ready at home in Kislingbury, my second photographer was with Dan whilst he got ready at a hotel in the nearby village of Harpole, also in Northamptonshire.

It was a beautiful September day and the church of St Luke in Kislingbury is an absolutely stunning location for a traditional English village church wedding.  The reception was held at the equally gorgeous Village Institute in nearby Harlestone – itself a listed art deco building which had so much charm and character.  There were traditional garden games for the children, a bar in a retro VW camper van and some great evening entertainment by a young fold band in the evening.

So it was a lovely wedding all round and quite special for me personally given the connections. I hope you like the small number of selected photos from their St Luke and Village Institute wedding in Harlestone, Northamptonshire.
