I didn’t get a chance to put up a complete post from Liz + Craig’s Brighton wedding a few months ago so wanted to show some extracts from their wedding album, complete with beach huts and an ice-cream seller.
This is their beach-themed cover with a summery feel.
This is Liz before she walked down the aisle at Brighton’s Hilton Hotel – these are two of Liz and Craig’s favourites listed for their album.
After their ceremony, Liz and Craig had hired a horse-drawn carriage to take them to their reception hotel further along the coast.
Their family and friends were a friendly, happy group, tucking into seaside favourites of fish and chips followed by cones of ice-cream outside, which was hugely popular with everyone.
Given that we had fine weather – not always a given – beach portraits with Liz and Craig finished off their album.
Yesterday was the Brighton wedding of Liz and Craig, who had engagement portraits last year on Brighton Pier. Â It was a thrill to work with them both again at their wedding ceremony at the Hilton Metropole in Brighton and later at another hotel further along the beachfront which involved fish and chips and an ice-cream seller. Â Here is a single image of the two of them exchanging their vows during their civil ceremony reflected in a mirror strip on the wall; the full blog post will be up in a week or two.
Every so often you get a couple or a bride who are really up for a bit of portrait time and magically everything comes together with finding good light as well as their hair, make-up and dress (I’m talking girls here). Tonight (well, last night – Saturday) was one of those times with Camilla at 51 Buckingham Gate. Â Just before I ended the evening, we were due to do some couple portraits and I found just the spot – at about the same time that Tarik headed outside for a smoke break. So Camilla and I had time to play with some of just her before he returned – and am so very glad that we did.
Claire and Sean came to London from their Surrey home with three of their friends to get married at Westminster Register office then have some wedding photos and champagne around the South Bank Centre. Â The joy of a midweek wedding is that places like the South Bank Centre are a little less busy and we were able to get some photographs near this summer’s installation of beach huts with just Claire and Sean that would not have been possible on a busy weekend. Â Here is just one from their wedding portrait session – the back of a beach hut as part of the South Bank Centre’s 50th anniversary of the Festival of Britain.
Jenny and Phil’s wedding today had them in fabulous outfits in keeping with their vintage clothing business – and we managed to find these doors as a background for some portraits just before they started their wedding breakfast. Â I’ll do a full post with lots more photographs from a fun-packed day when they are all edited.
