Wedding photography London UK | a very British wedding

Wedding photography London

Rob & Jennifer were married at Holy Trinity Church Long Newnton and then went onto Westonbirt House for their wedding reception. Westonbirt is an Elizabethan style manor house built in 1863 and designed by Lewis Vullimay, It has a sumptuous classical english style interior and is now used as a private boarding school but is available on select dates throughout the year for weddings.

Rob is a wedding photographer himself and I was flattered that he chose me as their wedding photographer. Jennifer’s dress was just fantastic and her flowing veil was brilliant for photographs in the wind!.

We use Folio Albums which are a fine art album made here in Britain and this is the layout of their album design. I hope you like it and if you are getting married here in the UK or anywhere in Europe or beyond we are available for destination weddings and would love to hear from you.

Alex & Jennie Wedding by Brett Harkness

We had so much fun on this wedding and produced some beautiful images. It was a very relaxed day with the wedding taking place a few miles away at St.Catherines Church in Chipping Campden. After a lovely service everyone made there way back to the venue where everyone relaxed on the law with drinks & canapes. After an hour or so we took some family pictures and then went for a walk with Alex & Jennie and the bridal party around the grounds for 20-30 mins. Here are some images from the day. We look forward to you both seeing the rest.

Iranian wedding in London

I seem to have got a bit of a cult following in London with young Iranian couples recently. Pegah & Hamed were getting married at a church in north London and wanted to have some very non traditional photos so I suggested the wedding party and I went for a walk around the area and we would see what we could come up with. I walked into an interior design shop with the bridal party and asked if we could use the shop for some impromptu photos and they said “sure no problem as long as we can have some of the photos!”.

A London wedding by Barrie Downie Studios

On Friday I photographed the wedding of Paolo and Laura at Newham town hall in London, they live a two minute walk from the town hall and wanted some quirky and unusual photos in and around the area. It was a pretty cold winters day in London but we found some great locations in the basement and the ballroom of the town hall. Laura was wearing her mothers wedding dress (her mother got married 37 years ago!).

Love black and white for the wedding photojournalism

I love the realism of natural light and the contrast of shades of white and black, I love photography and film scene, the story with images that convey emotion and authenticity; Here are some of my black and white image from recent in the last few weddings last year.

 These images represent my work and my wedding photojournalism
