Adham and Haya's engagement party was at the beautiful London Sofitel St James and I couldn't resist photographing the couple outside the beautiful building. As this was taken late in the evening, it was already dark and on top of that, we had the typical London weather - rain.
That didn't stop us from setting up a flashlight behind the couple to achieve the dramatic lighting and use the rain to our advantage. The couple absolutely loved this image and it definitely has that wow factor, it’s always great to turn a rainy day into something beautiful.
This wedding portrait was shot during their wedding at Hedingham Castle here in Essex, UK. Hedingham Castle is arguably the best-preserved Norman keep in England. The castle fortifications and outbuildings were built around 1100, and they keep around 1140. However, the keep is the only major medieval structure that has survived, albeit less two turrets.
This was my first wedding of 2020 and due to Covid19, it's been my only wedding shot in 2020. This wedding was a real joy to photograph and I'm so pleased to be able to share a photograph from it with you all.
I shot this photograph on the grounds of Port Lympne Hotel (Kent, UK): a unique country manor with a history of hosting prestigious guests which include the legendary Colonel T.E. Lawrence (better known to some as Lawrence of Arabia) and Sir Winston Churchill. The photograph catches the newlyweds standing under an ancient horse-chestnut tree in the grounds of the manor, enjoying a moment of quiet calm away from their guests just a few minutes after they have made their wedding vows to one another.
Before Alyson and Garret skipped down the boat ramp, I set up a remote Nikon camera on the dock above them, with a panoramic lens. I only needed to click the remote button to capture how their spontaneous, loving choreography brought poetry to the fabulous Hudson River scene. Ironically, we captured these pre-sunset, engagement photos one year ago.
When the pandemic forced the cancellation of their early summer gala wedding, the couple replanned a beautiful, micro-affair at the Historic estate, Lyndhurst Mansion, perched in the rolling hills above the river. Their classy affair happened this past Sunday, making this Wedaward perfectly timed! Stay tuned for more highlights from their wedding on the Lyndhurst grounds.
