Another awesome U.K. wedding wrapped up and also the smallest one I have had the absolute pleasure to capture!
Lara and Mark's day was a simple affair where they exchanged vows at the local Register Office in Hammersmith, which also just happens to be situated right near the river Thames. Their day was witnessed by two of their dear friends and the wonderful people who had me come along to capture it all, Sara and Tom. The ceremony was an absolute cracker of an affair with the two city officials and celebrants fighting to hold themselves back from dancing to the Motown music playlist that the wedding party had loaded up.
One of the great things about the U.K. are the ample pubs that even without a plan you can find, grab a drink or three in and have a great time. All of 100m away from the town hall was the gorgeous little pub known as The Dove that sits beside the river Thames. The champagne was popped and several pints of ale were drunk by all, which sparked everyone's enthusiasm to get dirty by walking into the low tide of the river for photos. Did we ruin our shoes in the muck? Sure did! Was it worth it? Well, look ahead and tell me what you think in the comments below. This truly was a celebration of love and true friendship.
Much love all you awesome folk!
Take note, grooms who think they can DIY at their wedding. If you're not prepared to custom build an altar and a tree-house for your big day, then you've got nothing on Joseph.
Liz and Joey's wedding was a perfect example of paying homage to young love, and creating a relaxed celebration centered around family, friends, and pets! Every wedding should have pets! Even if they break out of the fence frequently during inopportune times.
Set in the beautiful beach side suburb of Portalrlington where Liz and Joey grew up and got together as a couple, each part of their day was only ever a small walk or drive away, and the collection of classic Aussie muscle cars made each short trip a totally stylish blast! Perhaps one of the sweetest parts of the day though was returning to the street lamp that Liz and Joey got together underneath years before for a few quiet moments. So simple yet so significant. Love it!
My sincerest appreciations go out to Liz & Joey for having me capture such a wonderful, warm day in Australia. Every bride and groom could learn from these two about how to rock it in relaxed DIY style.

Well would you look at these two sweethearts.
Danika and Colin came all the way from their new home of Cambridge, England, in order to have a wonderfully unique DIY wedding in Danika's home city of Adelaide, A.K.A 'RAdelaide'.
From the get-go it was an 'all hands on deck' approach, with wedding members pitching in during the lead-up to their big day helping create decorations and even the wedding cake! This was all topped off with amazing sets of venues like Tin Cat Cafe, and among its surrounds the Rundle Street Art Project that gave us numerous unique backdrops for photos. SO much so, that we ended up shooting other couples and guests during some down time with various pieces.
Danika and Colin are two of the most genuine people you will ever meet and their love during the wedding was certainly contagious. They're two scientists with a flair for life and great, unique experiences, and their day was certainly an extension of that shared by everyone who attended. If you've never cried at a wedding before this was definitely the event that would crack the seal, again, and again.
It's not every day you get to shoot off to a wonderful city like Adelaide, Australia, for an awesome, hip engagement shoot. With the Adelaide Fringe Festival in full-swing, we were delighted to shoot in this amazing street art project called 'Little Rundele Street Art Project', which was only recently completed by this talented team.
As you can tell, Danika and Colin were clearly infatuated with each other in the lead up to their wedding day, and it made for an incredibly fun and lively shoot that was closed with a few cold beers!
