A couple of weeks ago, I met with Claire and Paul who are getting married at the Fitzleroi Barn in West Sussex next month.
As I usually do with ‘my’ couples, I went to check the venue with them. We had a look at the Registry Office where the ceremony will be held and we went to check the Barn together. This place looks beautiful ! We also had a look around to find a nice spot for their portraits shots on their Big Day.
I know that sometimes my couples choose to go for the Documentary photography style to go away from the usual staged portraits images but I like to do those “Getting to Know You” sessions ! It enables me to spend some times with the couple and see how we get along and how they react in front of the camera. On the Wedding Day, I will mainly shoot in an non intrusive way with the “Odd” staged family and couple portraits here and there though.
It was nice to chat with Claire and Paul and have a little look at the British country side. One more month to go before their Wedding Day !
I have always wanted to do a 50′s bridal inspiration shot. When I saw Delphine Manivet‘s dresses. One of them looked very 50′s to me and I thought that it was the perfect opportunity to try to set up a 50′s styled shoot. I used one dress by Delphine and one from Honeypie Boutique. I also sourced some Vintage Jewelry from Vintage&Lovely, hair pieces and cards from Sibo Designs… Wookie Flowers supplied lovely bouquets and Amelia George baked a fruit cake for me.
The pictures have been taken at the Bloombury Bowling Lanes. Have a look at some pictures below.

This is the second selection of my wedding inspiration shoot at the Kenton in Hackney. This time I had lovely cakes by Amelia George, flowers by Wookie Flowers and dresses by Delphine Manivet again. Even Jarvis (the dog) stepped in for some shoots.
Perhaps, you remember Wanyu & Robin’s wedding two months ago at the Carlton Mitre Hotel in Hampton Court ? I met with them again last month in order to give them their wedding prints and we did a quick photo session close to Russell Square Gardens…
