Aynhoe Park Wedding

Aynhoe Park Wedding

Nehal and Justin – Part 1

Nehal and Justin are the nicest couple. We met a couple of years ago and this wedding was always going to be a bit different! Spread over 2 days with day 1 being more a traditional wedding (although Aynhoe is not a traditional venue!). Day 2 was a Hindu wedding which will be featured very soon. I was so welcomed when I got there in the morning and everyone was very relaxed. It took no time at all to find somewhere interesting to hang the wedding dress before Nehal got ready for the ceremony at theOxford Oratory which is a hidden gem of a church. After the ceremony, we all went to a zoo which has animals for the film industry. It was a bit surreal to see guest with monkeys on them and penguins wandering around. I love the shot of Nehal ‘high fiving’ a lion! Very few of the guests knew that the evening reception was at Aynhoe Park. Its a stunning venue that is full of so many item. From stuffed polar bears with hats to lifesize airfix sets of sports cars! With the excellent evening meal over, the band kept everyone dancing all night. I am sure some didnt sleep before day 2!

Michaela and Liam are such busy people. I have no idea how they planned their wedding with such limited time. I even met them separately as they were never available on the same day. With many guests flying in, they wanted a relaxed wedding and the Gherkin gave them a great venue with amazing views. As the ceremony was not until 7pm, I organised a ‘first look’ where the two of them would see each other before the ceremony. This meant they got more time together on the day and actually walked to the Gherkin together. The atmosphere at the Gherkin was fantastic. Everyone loved the views and the ceremony had some lovely touches with each of them having their own entrance. After the wedding breakfast, the band got everyone on the dance floor all night. Here are a few images from their day.

Claire gill - Fantastic photos Sean. Your fisheye lens really comes into it’s own with architecture like that. The images look so sharp, just like the building.

Lel Hurst - What an incredible wedding, the first look pictures are fabulous and sunset from the gherkin is simply spectacular!

Riverdale Barn Wedding Photographer

Phil and Kerrys wedding at Riverdale Barn was a fantastic day. From the moment I got to Kerry in the morning, you could tell everyone was looking forward to a great day. Kerry had lots of friends and family around her when she got into her dress as well. Phil and Kerry’s daughter led the bridal processional which was a lovely touch. The weather tried to turn but we managed to avoid the big downpour during the couple shots.

Phil was more nervous than most grooms before the speeches. In addition to having to deliver a speech in front of all his family and friends, he also had the surprise of buying Kerry a car which he gave her the keys of at the end of the speeches. He looked so relieved once they were over. The first dance was lovely as they included their daughter as well. After which everyone joined in and had a great night.

Here is a sneak peek of their day.

Hampton Court Palace Wedding

Hampton Court Palace Wedding

Leona and James are a fantastic couple. I actually only met them 3 days before the wedding and knew immediately that it would be a fun wedding. It was such a sunny day and Hampton Court Palace was the perfect venue. Leona got ready across the road with lots of family, friends, bridesmaids and flower girls to help. There was a real air of excitement.  It was quite a site to see Leona and the whole entourage cross the road and walk down the main path to the Palace.

The ceremony was held in the The Little Banqueting House which has an amazing roof. The ceremony was full of laughter and tears in equal measures. Both James and Leona seemed incredibly happy. After the ceremony, there was a drinks reception in the walled garden followed by a tour of the palace for the guests. The relaxed atmosphere continued into the evening as the formal dinner was replaced with an outdoor hog roast and speeches on the lawn. 

The first dance was sung by Leona’s friend which was a lovely touch and the evening continued with guests singing with the pianist. Here is a small selection of images from their wedding. Feel free to comment, share, etc.

Middle Temple Wedding

Middle Temple Wedding

Gemma and Bernard had an amazing wedding at Middle Temple which is one of the grandest settings I have shot in! Gemma got ready just around the corner on Fleet Street and walked to the venue which turned a few heads! In addition to Gemma, Bern also got to walk down the aisle which was a nice touch! As was the ‘Do I love you’ excerpt from Fiddler on The Roof as one of the readings!

The weather was perfect for the afternoon drinks on the lawn and everyone quickly relaxed. At the start of the wedding breakfast, Gemma and Bern entered the room to Heavy D and the Boys which got everyone up on their feet! This was followed just after the starters with the first dance followed by half an hours dancing before the main course. After the speeches, we managed to capture a few images as the sun was setting. This was before the dancing continued including both of them being hoisted up on chairs!

Here is a small selection of images from the day.

Wedding at Pembroke Lodge

Wedding at Pembroke Lodge

I first Met Ben and Sen at one of my favourite weddings a couple of years ago and I was really looking forward to their day. Pembroke Lodge is a great wedding venue for many reasons and once again it didn’t disappoint. Senlika got ready at the Petersham Hotel which is just by the river in Richmond. She was ready really early which gave us a little extra time to get some portraits of her looking amazing. The wedding in the Belvedere was lovely with readings in both English and French. The weather was very much on our side and the champagne flowed during the cocktail hour. The food as always at Pembroke Lodge was fantastic and the friends and family seemed to be loving the day. Ben and Sen visited everyone at the tables which is a lovely thing to do.

This is the first time that I have had not only the bride and groom do a speech together but it was also written to rhyme. Not only that but they only prepared it a couple of days before the wedding! The first dance had been practised for a while but was a surprise for their guests. I just had to make sure I was in the right place for the dip! The dance floor was full all night with the Best Man Olivier on the decks.

Here is a selection of their wedding images.
