Natasha and Emma • Northbrook Park • Farnham • Blossoms and Ribbons • Documentary Wedding Photography

Having been to Northbrook Park before, I knew it was a stunning venue and was so excited to be back there again for Natasha and Emma’s big day. 

I turned up as the guests were arriving and the venue looked stunning, the flowers were an absolute masterpiece and as I saw Natasha arriving and Emma walking down the aisle I knew that it was going to be a stunningly beautiful day. 

The ceremony was full of love and laughter - you could tell how much Natasha and Emma loved each other, it was obvious to see. Laughter rang through the conservatory throughout the service and tears followed as their personal vows were read. 

It was a gorgeous day weather wise too, slightly overcast, which people always think isn’t great but trust me when I say it’s the most flattering light you could have at a wedding, there is no harsh shadows and no squinting eyes - so flattering!

After the ceremony, I went for a short walk around the venue with Natasha and Emma, it’s so nice to take the couple away after they’ve said hello to their friends and family. You’re with people the whole day so it’s nice just to be with each other alone, especially in Northbrook Park as there are so many little areas and nooks that we can use and grab some really nice intimate moments together. I especially love the wood store at Northbrook Park - slightly odd, I know, but it gives such an interesting backdrop.

To get your seats in the reception you had to take a shot which I think is a fabulous idea getting the party started straightaway. It was clear to see the relationship between Natasha and Emma was built on fun and laughter, throughout the whole day they were giggling and making each other smile, it really was a stunning day with two stunning Bride’s at a stunning location, I wish them all the best in their future together, I know that they’ll be laughing together for a very long time.

Edmund and Anooshe • The Dorchester • Documentary Wedding Photography • London Wedding Photographer

This was the most lavish wedding celebration I have ever shot! Myself and my second shooter/lifesaver Katrina were armed with two cameras each for this event. The Bride and Groom were actually married the day before, but their celebrations had rolled into a 5 day event - we were shooting the Saturday Night. 500 guests rolled up to The Dorchester Hotel, Mayfair in the most beautiful cars and most beautiful outfits. The ballroom was decked out from head to toe, with beautiful flowers, candles and centrepieces. Lavish is a complete understatement.  The ballroom had its own technical crew for lighting, staging and sound. The amazing band were sound checking on stage next to the grand piano and massive tiered wedding cake. It really did blow my mind!

I always remember that in amongst all the decorations and beautiful venue, no matter how stunning or how glamorous, it’s still a wedding celebration and the main event were the Bride and Groom. We managed to get a first glimpse of them up in their room getting the final few details finished. Anooshe looked absolutely stunning, her original dress was beautiful, a dress very hard to forget! Edmond’s custom suit was gorgeous too (let’s not forget about the Groom!)

They were introduced to their guests on the stage as the curtains parted, food was served and speeches made in between courses. This happy couple had the honour of having a few VIP’s at their celebration, including the Prime Minister of Pakistan, and quite a few Bollywood stars! This of course made all their guests really get into the dancing after the meal! One star in particular led the festivities and got the whole room going, it was definitely a great party, and the best band I’ve ever seen (details below). I wish them the best in their married lives together, and hope that their party spirit always runs deep!
