2018 Wedding Photography Highlights

UK Leica Wedding Photographer – 2018 Weddings

For 2018 I was booked as the official wedding photographer by five different couples. All five events were UK weddings, dotted around England. Here are a few highlights from those special days until I get chance to post more images!

Chris & Annie

Berkshire wedding – Tylney Hall Hotel

Ridge Lane, Rotherwick, Hook RG27 9AZ

Chris and Annie were to get married with their family and friends at the beautiful Tylney Hall hotel. Chris is a fellow Leica photographer so appreciated the cameras and lenses I use for my work! They opted for colour digital photographs (+ B&W edits).

Leanne & Ciaran

Hilton Hotel Coventry Wedding

Paradise Way, Walsgrave on Sowe, Coventry CV2 2ST

Leanne and Ciaran’s wedding was the only local wedding booking I had for 2018. I often have bookings in the south of the UK so it was a nice change to have a wedding just down the road!

Sveta & Drew

Stratford-upon-Avon wedding – Best Western Grosvenor Hotel

Warwick Road, Stratford-Upon-Avon, CV37 6YT

Sveta and Drew requested my discounted black and white digital photography package. B&W wedding photos are my personal favourite so I offer this service at a lower cost! (Contact me for more details). In addition to digital photos taken with the Leica cameras they also requested some colour film photography too. (I will try to share more film images in a seperate post).

Adam & Becky

South Farm Royston Wedding (Hertfordshire)

Fen Road, Shingay-cum-Wendy, Royston SG8 0HR

Adam and Becky booked me for a mix of both colour digital photography with Leica cameras and some film photography with analogue cameras. The best of both! We were in conversation for I think two years prior to the wedding and I think this was ultimate example of the more you put into something the more you reap the rewards afterwards.

John & Reema

Last April (2017) I was invited to photograph John and Reema’s Hindu wedding at Hengrave Hall in Bury Saint Edmunds.  John is my ‘little’ (youngest) brother so it was a family wedding with me attending as both a guest and the primary wedding photographer.  We had already done the English wedding ceremony part at the registry office in London so this was the wedding part two!  Hengrave Hall is a stunning wedding venue but quite a distance from Coventry.  We all travelled from John and Reema’s home in London to Bury Saint Edmunds for a weekend of fun and for the Hindu wedding ceremony.

I used to photograph more Indian weddings than English weddings in the past, both Sikh and Hindu weddings.  (This was before I moved to Leica so a few years ago now).  Coventry had a large Indian population and I was working as a primary wedding photographer for a few different wedding photographers in the Indian community and also as a wedding videographer as part of an Asian wedding cinematography team using my Nikon D800 camera at the time for video.  Since moving to Leica cameras I think my wedding style has become more suited to English weddings (white weddings) as I like to photograph a lot in black and white.  Black and white weddings are my preferred style in most situations given the chance and also for model photography much of my work is B&W photography).  I also use traditional film cameras and feel the look seems to suit the white wedding dress better, regardless of whether I am using colour film or black and white film.

For John and Reema’s wedding there was going to be lots of colour so every photo was taken in colour.  I used two digitial Leica M cameras, the Leica M240 with wide lenses and a Leica M8 with the Leica Summilux 50mm f1.4 ASPH lens.  I found the wedding a lot of fun but equally very difficult to photograph.  The lighting was not ideal for a lot of the day with a lot of colour cast inside and me needing to be in three places at once much of the time, as a guest and as the main wedding photographer so it was difficult to setup off cameras lights.   That said really enjoyed the day, and seeing family and friends and John and Reema liked their wedding photos.  I feel I could have done a far better job if I shot it all again but I guess that is how we improve!  Below are a few sample images from John and Reema’s wedding.

Thanks

Thanks John and Reema for such an awesome day! Great memories. 🙂 xx
