For your engagement, wedding or honeymoon shooting you can choose one million of places around the world, but hardly you will find any as beautiful and unique as Split in Croatia. Many of couples around the world recognized it and engaged us to take their photographs exactly under the shadows of the historical palace or under the sun in Split.
This French couple has decided to tie the knot on the other side of the planet: they flew from South of France to Auckland, New Zealand. They had just contacted me, the photographer, and the celebrant to make their vows official. On the way, they have picked up the landlord of the lovely place they were staying at in Piha (West Auckland) and the celebrant assistant as their witnesses.
It truly was a delightful, unique and original wedding and for sure very intimate: without any guests!
England has some amazing wedding venues with a lot of tradition, and Sherborne Abbey in Dorset is just one of those venues. It’s in the county of Dorset in the South of England, and the Abbey has been a place of worship since AD 705. Such an amazing building to photograph a wedding in, and it can be a bot overwhelming. Whenever I find myself photographing in these kinds of places, it’s good to remember that it’s all about the people and the relationships. Using the impressive building and surroundings as a scene setter, it’s important not to get drawn away from the things that matter – the people!
Although I’m based in Hertfordshire and London, I do get commissioned to photograph weddings all over the UK and some destination weddings too. I’ve photographed a couple of fine venues in the South West, including Maunsel House and the Symondsbury Estate, but this was my first time at Sherborne Abbey. Before I photographed there, I met Laura and her sister at Holbrook House Hotel for some preparation photos. They were getting ready on their own, and it made for some lovely intimate pictures of the two sisters.
The Abbey did not disappoint as far as providing such a splendid background for this wonderful wedding.
Don’t’ be afraid of a wedding in the rain!
Even under these weather conditions, the atmosphere of the wedding is unique…it makes almost everything more magical!
Anastacia & Vladimir have chosen to get married in Villa del Balbianello , wonderful location on Lake Como.
Many smiles and emotion in this marriage.
A big thank you to Tamara & Mike for choosing me as their Bali beach wedding photographer.
Tamara had contacted me many months before her wedding day. I am very proud that she had set her eyes on me as her Bali wedding photographer even before she had a venue, a wedding planner. She was very specific that stunning beach with blue ocean and void of crowds would be the setting she and Mike wanted to have their Bali beach wedding.
Beach weddings in Bali can be challenging. Fortunately, Tamara found the perfect location. Please see their wedding photographs in the following.
Thank you so much !!
