What more could you want than to shoot an awesome Aussie couple in Berlin?
Merren and Chris moved to Berlin for an 'adventure', which was supposed to last a year or two. Three+ years later, and with the addition of little Hayley to the fam, they seem to have settled into the Berlin life for good.
Merren and Chris wanted to show off their Berlin life to all their friends and family, and took guests on a tour of the city by through venue hops and walking routes. It was super thoughtful and full of unique and quirky touches (cue mini schnaps bottle favors).
There was a sweet pre-ceremony reveal at Museum Island, where bike tour guide Merren often takes visitors. Merren's colleages from Fat Tire bike tours even dropped some bikes down for a photo opp! We then headed to the absolutely stunning Clärchen’s Ballhaus Spiegelsaal (aka Hall of Mirrors), for a heartfelt ceremony, including ballad vows! A walk down to a local Späti for beer and pretzels followed, and then a short trip on the Ubahn took guests to the reception at Schönwetter beer garden.
Merren and Chris's happiness was overflowing and contagious, and made for the most amazing day! We are so lucky to have been a part of it!
Sunshine, glorious florals, and classic English styling in Oxfordshire.
What more could a photographer want?
Well, I was lucky enough to shoot Anisha and Arun's intimate wedding ceremony at the Old Swan Minister Mill as my first U.K. wedding earlier this year and it was nothing short of stunning.
Anisha reached out to me shortly after moving to Oxford asking me to cover her special day that was only to be attended by close family and friends; a special affair that required a candid and discrete approach across the afternoon.
Honestly, I could not have wanted for a more picture perfect couple who executed classic style in such an honest and down-to-earth manner. Just two people in absolute love celebrating it with a sincere gathering of wonderful people in a picture perfect setting.
Much love to you awesome folk!
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.
WHAT A BLAST!
From start to finish, Anna & Chris created one of the most memorable and fun weddings I've ever had the pleasure of being a part of. They won me over even more by feeding me a deluxe meal, not once, but twice! Yep, it's that simple with me.
Having spent a few occasions getting to know Anna & Chris before their big day (engagement session here) I knew they'd just have an amazing vibe to their wedding - chilled, full of smiles, food, and oh so much love! The elegant and stylish simplicity of their attire, the jovial loving bounce they had for each other all day, and an absolutely blistering first dance! It truly was the perfect balance of organised and footloose fun. I cannot thank them enough for having me capture it all!
Much love and one big ol' blog post of joyful images,
Shout out to the fine venue folk at The Farm Cafe for being on point and keeping me well hydrated!
