Orleans House Gallery wedding

 

Sophie and Sean chose to hold their intimate wedding in Twickenham at Orleans House Gallery. This octagonal baroque room has ornate high ceilings and is flooded with light. I loved how this place, nestled away in woodland by the River Thames, feels like something from a fairytale. It is an oasis of calm in the city, you would never know you were in London. And yet it has the understated chic London vibe that suited this couple down to the ground.

 

Happy wife, happy life!

 

After the ceremony, the couple shared a relaxed champagne reception with their guests outside Orleans House Gallery. Sophie could not stop smiling and laughing, the joy was just radiating out of her and it was infectious. It was obvious that everyone was having such a great time. And what a Goddess Sophie looked in her Justin Alexander fishtail gown! I love that Sophie wore her hair down with a long tulle veil that kept catching the breeze.

We wandered just out of the grounds to the river for their couples portraits. I think the backdrop of The Thames and the London streets gives these photographs an authentic sense of place. This is the city where they met and fell in love and it mattered that this was reflected in their wedding photographs.

 

Kew Gardens Wedding

 

I hopped onto their red Routemaster bus with the newlyweds to their reception near Kew Gardens.

The laid back atmosphere of the Kew Gardens Hotel suited the day perfectly. The charming walled garden area made for a classic London wedding backdrop for the wedding breakfast. There were hints of gold, pink and lush green throughout, which has got to be one of my favourite wedding colour schemes. It’s modern and fresh but also so feminine and romantic.

Thank you to Helen for assisting me on the day. After the speeches, we left them to continue the party into the night.

What a fabulous London wedding! Click on this link to see another Kew Gardens wedding on my blog. I can’t wait for my next. Are you planning a wedding in Twickenham or Richmond and looking for a fine art documentary wedding photographer? Let’s talk.

 

Tell me all about your wedding plans!

Callow Hall Wedding

 

Callow Hall in Ashbourne, Derbyshire is a luxury wedding venue that I love to photograph. The grand house, elegant gardens with breathtaking views and a light filled marquee set the scene for a fabulous wedding. The staff are so well managed and attentive that every detail is looked after and I have always been made to feel welcome here.

Wendy and Simon invited their best friends and family from all around the world to join them here for their wedding. I met Wendy at the country house as she was getting ready with her best friends. Wendy’s father’s face as his daughter walked down the stairs as a bride for the first time was a picture. As the vicar said during the ceremony, this day had been a long time coming. I loved Wendy’s glamorous updo and how her beautiful dress flattered her petite frame, doesn’t she look fabulous?

The couple exchanged vows in a touching church ceremony at St Mary’s in Mappleton, just down the road from their venue. The church’s architecture is different from anything else I’ve seen in this country. The sleek lines and simplicity of the design reminded me of churches abroad. After some family portraits and confetti outside, everyone made their way back up the hill to the garden for drinks. A string trio provided the background music to the champagne reception that followed.

As the guests were seated in the marquee, I spent a few moments with the newlyweds taking some intimate and relaxed wedding portraits of them together. I love this time in the day to find some pretty light. The couple then made their entrance inside for speeches, dinner and dancing.

This was a truly wonderful day. Wendy and Simon were wonderful clients and being part of their wedding was an honour. This is what Simon said about why they had chosen me to capture their day:

 

“One of the things I loved about the examples I’ve seen from your portfolio is your talent in capturing the vibrancy and detail of the occasion”

 

I’m delighted that you love these photographs, Wendy and Simon!

Hartington Hall Wedding

Suzy and her partner Nobin hosted a Hartington Hall in the Peak District, Derbyshire. They chose an outdoor wedding ceremony and a garden reception followed by dinner and dancing into the evening in the beautiful Elizabethan hall. These are some of my favourites from their day.

Weekend House Party Weddings

 

What a beautifully simple and elegant celebration. I loved the warm and uplifting family atmosphere that comes about when you take over a wedding venue for the weekend. Weekend house party weddings are great, aren’t they? Everyone can relax, take time to rest after their journey. There is no rushing on the morning of the wedding because you’re just a few steps away from where it will all happen and no worrying about getting a taxi home. Perhaps the best bit is to be able to recover slowly, together, the day after the big party, sharing brunch before returning home.

 

Hartington Hall wedding

 

Suzy and Nobin love the Peak District so much they travelled down from Manchester to host their wedding weekend here. The backdrop of the rugged stone walls sheltering fields of sheep and the predictable chug of tractors passing by all added to the atmosphere. This was a day for children to run around, for laughter and reflection, for friendships and families to come together.

Suzy looked beautiful in her vintage style short wedding dress and glamorous big waves in her hair. I love this look, don’t you? The touches of red were carried through to the rest of the bridal party.

“We’ve just seen our wedding pictures by Lucy and we are so pleased with them. We really cannot recommend you enough!”

 

If you’re planning a weekend Hartington Hall wedding, I’d love to take your photographs. Take a look at my Investment page for more information. You can also drop me an email to get a copy of my brochure.
