There are some amazing buildings in London. Not all of them are suited to having weddings in them,
but if you know the right people then they can sprinkle on some magic dust and turn the ordinary
into the extraordinary. One such person is all round superstar Penny from Tigerlily Weddings - http://www.tigerlilyweddings.co.uk/ - turned a former chapel in East London into the most amazing
place for Amy and Joe to get married. The detail was amazing, right down to the personalised
homemade Jam used as a table plan, to the festoon lighting and the bunting, and the antique
cups and saucers. Days like this make photography a dream, everywhere you looked, everything
looked great. Thanks Penny. Here are a few pictures as a taster, and there are plenty more to come....
One of the golden rules of photography is to avoid having things growing out of peoples heads. Well try
that when shooting at Cliff Barns in Norfolk. At this amazing venue, there are horns and heads everywhere
on the walls, and after a while trying not to give Nicola and Will a full set of antlers, i just gave up and
went with the flow. Horns all round....
what does one wear to a wedding so as not to clash with the bride? well at anna and charles' wedding
recently, charles nigerian family wore traditional dress (as did they too in the evening) and they
looked amazing. the colours and the patterns were spectacular, and certainly made a change from
the usual attire. now, would a suit made from some of these fabrics look the business...?
The other week we shot a great wedding in France, a humanist ceremony on a field, complete with a
homemade stage and mini campsite. It was like a small festival ("WedFest" suggested the best man).
After about 2 months of wall to wall sunshine in SW France, the morning of the wedding was wet. Very
wet, and decision had to made wether to move everything indoors. Well luckily everyone decided to
hell with the weather (in the only way us Brits do) and everyone carried on regardless. It was a fantastic
day, and made the more memorable because of the weather, and the music, and the location. Check
out the rest of the shoot here...
Thank you Adeline and Scott for a fantastic weekend, summed up by someone who shouted out on the
day before the wedding "This is the best wedding I have ever been to, and we have not even had it yet...."!
Take two super cool parents and add one happy wee boy and a trombone and two top hats and a
skeleton and five animal masks and some old ventilation tubing and mix it in an old town hall now
used as an artists residence, and you have all the ingredients for a happy day with plenty of laughs
in the east end. And we did not even get around to wearing the clown costume. Thank you Loolie,
Pete and Woody, so much fun.
Adeline and Scott are getting married in France next month and we created a very short film to
announce that they are getting married. Both are very into music and we came up with the idea
of them dancing in an old village hall. You can see the results under 'we move'.
The music is by 'the sunbeat revival'. Check it out on http://www.thesunbeatrevival.com/
