Here is a collection of some wedding photography I have been doing over the last years. Have a look to get some inspiration for your own wedding! You will also you get a good feeling of my photography style, I am often described as a reportage wedding photographer or documentary wedding photographer. Most of the wedding have been taking place in London, but I have also done wedding photography on the English country side as well as abroad. Have a look at the beautiful winter wedding between Piero & Rita in Verona. Or check out some of my favourite vintage weddings, one of them got featured in Style me pretty earlier this year.

Pub wedding venues London | Modern wedding photographer London story

Pub wedding London

This is pub wedding venues London story, a modern and contemporary wedding day. The ceremony was in Wandsworth and the reception in Clapham Junction.

Pub wedding london

It was not actually a wedding, as the couple got married abroad before. It was a wedding blessing ceremony. The couple decided to celebrate their wedding in the Church with the relatives and friends of London and the UK. So, basically they were already legally married, therefore there were no legal effects involved.

After the ceremony, we moved to the Roundhouse pub to celebrate. The pub is in Clapham Junction, precisely in 2 North Side Wandsworth Common, SW18 2SS, just in case you wish to visit it.

Let’s begin this modern and joyful wedding blessing story

The getting ready

The getting ready was in a house in Wandsworth, with many relatives and friends of the couple. It was clearly not formal at all, but rather open, friendly and joyful.

Let’s have a look at the dress. I liked it for two reasons. First, it was a modern style green dress. Second, it was very simple, a true minimalist wedding dress.

Joy and laugh was definitely the leitmotiv of this wedding blessing celebration. The bride, actually, the wife, worn a green modern wedding dress, Her sister and best friends helped her for the hairdressing

The weather was incredible, with a shiny sun all day long.

Of curse, with such a great mood throughout the whole morning, the preparation went just smooth and fine. Everyone relaxed like it was a normal Sunday morning lunch with the family and friends.

Walking to the church

The church was in Wandsworth, really close to the couple family house. Therefore we walked to it, together with family and friends. After all, it was an amazing sunny day.

Of course, during the walk, we had some time for some photos of the bride and her friends and family.

The Church

Finally, here we are, at the church for the wedding blessing ceremony.

Finally, the Roundhouse pub

What about the pub wedding venues in London? It is the topic of this blog post, so let’s have a look at this pub.

Contemporary London wedding photography story, with a small and intimate back garden reception

Back garden wedding reception

This contemporary London wedding photography story is about a couple who decided on a small, intimate and layback wedding. The most amazing thing was absolutely the idea to have the reception in their back garden.

You will see throughout this wedding how many little things you can do to transform your back garden in a beautiful and cosy place.

Let’s begin.

The getting ready

While I was getting to the bride and groom house, the very first thing I saw was her dress hanging on the window. Such a great way to begin the wedding day. First, it put me straight away into the wedding day mood. Second, I was sure to be in the right place 🙂

Contemporary London wedding photography

As we begin looking at the wedding dress from the street, let’s have a look at it. In detail, it was definitely an outstanding, elegant and contemporary piece of art.

London wedding photoraphy

The first thing to remember when a wedding photographer gets into the bride and groom house is to take a photo of the environment. It is important to realize that only at the very beginning of the day you might have calm.

For instance, would have been impossible to take these photos late in the morning. First, things get messy. Second, getting ready starts to need your full attention. Third, can be more people around as friends and family joining the bride. In this case, for example, I really loved the wedding bouquet and flowers in the water pot in the toilet. This was exactly what I found when arrived, with my jacket still on. Their position was great with a perfect feeling of wait.

Finally, let’s meet the bride!!

London wedding photography

The getting ready was smooth and easy. Everyone was happy and relaxed. There was no rush and no tension, just exitement and joy. It was a really perfect morning!

The garden

Of course, among the so many lovely things about this wedding, a special mention is for the bride and groom idea to celebrate the wedding day in their home back garden. Before we go on with this London wedding photography, let’s have a sneak peek at the garden setup.

The decorated the back garden fences with many printed photos of themselves. Then, there was a table for drinks, whereas the food was kept inside, as you will see later.

Let’s get back to the getting ready. There is the moment when the mother of the bride and the father of the bride see their daughter with the weddign dress for the first time. Certainly, one of the most emotional moment of the getting ready, and of course, wedding photography speaking, one of the most important to take photos of.

Back to the geting ready

Here, the mother of the bride admiring her daughter.

Let’s get back to wedding preparation. It was still morning, and a lot of things to do left…

london wedding photography

Not to mention, the father of the bride. He was so proud!

…and of course, it was a bit emotional for the bride too 😉

Just few things left before complete the wedding preparation. A photo of the wedding bouquet and the wedding shoes.

Here we are, finally the bride wearing the wedding shoes, the very last thing to do before we can say “we are ready”.

Bridal portraits

Finally the getting ready was over, but it was a bit early. As I said, the whole preparation was smooth and relaxed, with no rush. Everything was very well orginized but without getting crazy with the morning scheduling. At the end, we used this little time before the driver came for some family photos and, of course, some portrait of the bride.

Especially when there is nice weather, and of course a beautiful wedding bouquet, must be remembered to take some photos of the bouquet. This, of course, is a really nice set of photos, very common in the very well known “fine art wedding photography” field. But, most of all, it will remind the bride how lovely it was in the many years to come.

By the way, about the bouquet photos, this was definitely my favourite. I really like her position and the gesture of this moment. Of course, it is a black and white wedding photo too, which can not miss from wedding photos, but alway to aware not to exaggerate with them. In fact, in my opinion, bright and colour photos are the most important things, and we can take a black and white photo only every now and then, to not lower the mood of the photos.

London wedding photography

Let’s end this London wedding photography morning preparation with the last photo of the bouquet. Here the bride and her best friend in the background, a perfect combination indeed.

The ceremony

We went to church with a classic wedding car. As a tradition, everyone was already there waiting for us. Actually, almost. We had to do one more round around the church with the car because some of the guests were still entering the church. But I have to say, it happens quite often!

The ceremony was nice and traditional, in a very beautiful church, the St. Anne’s Church in Wandsworth.

And finally here we are, the very new husband and wife! The ceremony was over, and, most important, everything was perfect!

The transports to the Chez Bruce reataurant for the wedding lunch

After the ceremony we went to the Chez Bruce restaurant, in Wandsworth common. The wedding guests moved by the classic weddin double-deck bus, whereas the couple and I went there by the same wedding car. It is nice to see the same photo the the bride and her dad, and then, an hour after, the bride and her husband.

The Wandsworth Common park

Before entering the restaurant we took some time for a few photos in the Wandsword common park.

In the park there was also a lovely pond, which of course suited very well for a few wedding portraits.

Of course, there was not only the couple. There were most of the wedding guests outside the restaurant for some drinks, and enjoy the sunshine.

Surely, It is not a ladybird, but let’s say it is a good luck anyway.

The wedding lunch

The wedding lunch was as much relaxed as the whole day was. There were nice speeches as well, of course.

In fact, these were absolutely the most emotional moments of the whole weddign day.

But as all the wedding lunch, also this ended with happiness, joy and a lot of toast!

After the ceremony – The confetti

We met a little white hairy friend just outside the restaurant, and of course the bride fell in love with him.

This London wedding photography story of course continued after the wedding Lunch. As we saw, we met that lovely doggy, and then we moved to the same park we were before for the confetti photos…

and of course the tossing of the bouquet!

She was the winner by the way!!

It is time to come back home for the second part of the day. The back garden wedding reception. The bride and groom joined the other wedding guests on the double-deck wedding bus to come back home, as the wedding car had already left. Of course, It was a nice and funny journey.

Back home to back garden wedding reception

Here we are, back home!

London wedding photographer

The couple decided to keep all the food inside, and the drinks on the table outside. In the following photos there are fo sure many ideas in case you wish to go for a back garden wedding reception. You don’t need much, a good amount of fantasy, a small band for some live music, and, of course, a back garden!

The view of the back garde wedding reception from the second floor.

The cake cutting. The bride and groom decided for a deliciuos cheese wedding cake.

With some photos of the party and wedding nusic band, here we are, at the end of this day.

I hope you enjoyed this contemporary London wedding photography story. Contemporary wedding is only one of several ways to identify and categorize a modern wedding photographer. There are many more of course. Let’s think about “documentary wedding photographer”, “photojournalist wedding photographer”. There is even the most popular “alternative wedding photographer”, or the beautiful “fine art wedding”, etc. Of course, these are some of the many ideas about weddings, all legit. However, there is only one thing when we talk about being a wedding photographer: to be able to be true in the way you tell the story of the couple.

Dartmouth House Wedding story | London wedding photographer

Dartmouth House Wedding story | London wedding photographer

The Dartmouth House is a very famous and popular wedding venue. I consider myself a very lucky London wedding photographer, being able to shoot several weddings in this beautiful location.

This wedding story is about one of those days, in the heart of Mayfair, London.

Dartmouth House wedding story – The getting ready

First of all, let’s meet the bride. She got ready at the Chesterfield Mayfair, the next-door Hotel. The Hotel is actually connected to the Dartmouth House from an internal door, so the bride can go in without being seen by the guests.

The bride and the make-up artist.

The bride is a really elegant person and, of course, her wedding dress was a beautiful, elegant and refined dress, with an amazing and exquisitely fabric.

Then, she opted for a pair of elegant flat shoes.

When the bride was almost finished with the getting ready, after wearing the dress, the mother got a bit emotional, she hugged her before let her wear the veil.

Getting ready.

Finally, the bride is ready and really happy!

and of course, there is time for some photos.

Bride portrait

Not to mention when the father of the bride saw her dauther ready to get married.

As I mentioned before, from the Chesterfield Mayfair hotel and the Dartmouth House there is an internal door. Through this door, the bride can go to the ceremony room without see any guest and, of course, the groom. That door takes into this room, where the bride and the bridesmaids are just waiting for the call to enter the ceremony room.

Then, the bride got the call, it’s time to go!

There is so much about the bride entering the ceremony room, from the bridesmaids got emotional to the proudness of the father of the bride. But, above all, the best was the happiness of the bride.

Finally, the confetti!

and then, time to drink and relax!

Wedding photographer London | A story of a destination fine art wedding

Wedding photographer London

Wedding photographer London | This is the second part of a wedding story we spoke about my last blog. The couple tied the knot at the St. Bartholomew’s Church in Barbican and then celebrated at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair.

However, that story was not over. The couple flew to Taiwan a few days after to keep going to the celebration, and I had the privilege to be their photographer for that event as well.

Here is the story

The dining room at the Sheraton Grand Taipei Hotel

After the wedding in London, the couple moved to Taipei for a banquet at the Sheraton Grand Taipei Hotel. This is the dining room at the Hotel.

The big Print of the wedding at the Connaught outside the dining room at the Sheraton
That is to say, It has been an incredible experience, as I had to select and edit the best photos within 2 days, and send them to the couple via email, to let them print the photos and use them for the destination wedding. Basically, they printed the best one 2×1 meter and hanged on the wall of the Sheraton Grand Taipei Hotel, to help the guests find their dining room for the wedding banquet.

The wedding dresses | wedding photographer London
Even though the bride kept her wedding dress from the wedding in London at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, she also had another wedding dress. So, on the left, you can see a  typical Taiwanese wedding dress the bride chose for the banquet.

The bride

Once again, let’s meet the bride getting ready at the Sheraton Hotel.

The bride getting ready
Just between the Sheraton Hotel and the dining room, there are few private rooms where the bride got ready, helped by the hairdresser and some relatives. 

Black and White photo of the bride checking at the mirar
Even though there are not so many black and white photos, here the bride checking herself in the mirror. 

The groom suit
While the bride was getting ready, I also moved to the groom place, who was getting ready at the very same hotel. A photo of his suit.

The groom

Wedding photographer London | A story of a destination fine art wedding | The groom having breakfast
Of course, he was had a bit more time to enjoy some breakfast, as the groom preparation is way quicker the bride getting ready.

The wedding tie
Obviously, I took some photos around, keeping an eye on the wedding details, like the tie. 

The thank you cards with the photo of the London wedding at The Connaught
Finally, some more of the wedding photos I took at the wedding in London, at the Connaught Hotel and at St. Bartholomew’s Church. The bride and the goom printed the best, as I said before, and used as thank you cards as well.

The groom preparation for the wedding
Again, we are back to the groom room. The breakfast is done, time to get ready, and of course, there is some tension for this very important day. 

Wedding photographer London | A story of a destination fine art wedding | Wedding tiara
At the same time, the bride preparation is almost done. We can admire here the wedding tiara she has chosen for the day.

The groom ready for the wedding
Then again, the groom is almost ready as well, just the time for the last check and whish to himself the best of luck for this very important day.

The bride explaining how she wants the tiara and the veil
After having tried the tiara, is time to final adjustment. As we said before, the bride will be wearing two different dresses for this event. Therefore, as a first wedding dress, she chose the one she had worn at the wedding in London.  

Wedding photographer London | The wedding veil
Obviously, with the same beautiful wedding veil.

Black and white bride photo | Wedding photographer London
Finally, it is time to go. I took this photo from the preparation room, and really liked the way the bride is waiting in the corridor. I spoke about how much I do love symmetry, even in wedding photographs, in the previous blog post about the story of their wedding in London the week before.

Wedding photographer London Part 2 | The ceremony

The happy bride looking at the dining room photo
As can be seen, the bride was really happy about the main bog photo outside the Sheraton Hotel dining room. She didn’t see that photo before, as she was busy in the changing room getting ready, meanwhile, the photo was hanged on the wall. 

The wedding dress and the shoes
Besides the wedding dress, the bride kept also the same wedding shoes of the previous ceremony in London. 

A little wedding Guest hold by her father
Here we go, the ceremony is going to begin and the guests are coming. 

The photo of the wedding in London are shown at the banquet reception the week after
So, the photo I took at the wedding in London at the Connaught the week before, were used

First – for the main photo outside the dining room

Second – for the thank-you cards

Third – to be shown during the dinner in a few screens in the dining room.


Finally, after all this preparation, the bride and the groom enter the dining room where all the guests were waiting for them. 


First, they said hello to the guests.

The bride and the groom at the wedding banquet
And then, they enjoyed the banquet meal.

Then, as said before, the bride changed her wedding dress with another one, a typical Taiwanese wedding dress.

And of course, the groom was waiting for the bride. 


Here we are, the second entering the dining room with the new wedding dress.

Even though it was a quite formal ceremony, the kids found time and space to play as well.

Wedding photographer London | A Fine art wedding story at the Connaught Hotel and St. Bartholomew Church

Wedding photographer London – As a photographer, it has been a great experience and deep pleasure to take the photos of this fine art wedding in the heart of Mayfair, London.  The getting ready and the wedding reception was at the  Connaught Hotel and the ceremony at St. Bartholomew Church.

In addition, the couple had a second ceremony the week after in Taiwan, to celebrate their great step with the bride’s relatives as well. This has been incredible as I had to edit the few best photos the day after and send them over to the bride and groom, now actually the husband and wife.

Having sent the best photos by the next Monday, I gave the change to the bride and groom to print them and use for the celebration in Taiwan, as you will see in the next wedding blog

Then, on the next Thursday, I flew to Taiwan to attend the ceremony in Taipei. It was a traditional Taiwanese wedding banquet, very formal and really interesting. I would say a unique experience.

But for now, let’s enjoy this London wedding story

After that, straight away at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, London. I just went to the bride room, where there were her sister and her niece as well. The room was messy, of course, a lot of things to do in so little time and with so much pressure and excitement.

Fine art Wedding photographer London | Connaught Hotel | St. Bartholomew Church
Besides, the bride niece was so adorable, she played a lot on the big bed whereas her mum and auntie were getting ready.

Wedding photograher London

As a wedding photographer, I have the luck to be part of some very special days, such as this incredible vintage, quirky and alternative wedding nearby London, at the St. barnabas Centre, where the leitmotiv was their love for the VW Campervan, and their french bulldog as well.

Wedding photographer London | The getting ready

Thank you cards

Let’s start with this small selection of wedding congratulations cards.

The bride and the groom love two things above all the others, the French Bulldog and the vintage VW Campervan, and it will be pretty clear through the upcoming photos!

The wedding dress | Wedding photographer London

During the getting ready it’s paramount to take some good photos of the wedding dress before it is worn by the bride. The style of this wedding dress reflects very much the vintage and alternative style of the bride and the groom.
