Bea & Duncan’s Barbican Engagement

February 21, 2014  |  Love Shoots, Lovely Couples, UK Weddings  |  5 Comments

London = Home

It is also home to a million chicken shops, actually it is scary how many chicken shops there are; we think it may be some soylent green shenanigans.  Given the horse meat saga… it might be pigeons?  Come on, where did the pigeons really go after they were banished from Trafalgar Square?  Makes you think doesn’t it?

However, London is home to some pretty beautiful locations – now throw in some beautiful soon-to-be-married people and of course we are going to get supper happy.  So, this shoot is at the gorgeous Barbican (it’s the ultimate hide and seek location and had Saddam and Osama been there we truly doubt that either of the pair would have been caught);

But, one pair who did get caught – with no trial or execution – are the lovely and in love Bea and Duncan, who have been shot (no pun we swear that is not a run on from that Osama comment) by Maureen Du Preez, in this fantastic brutalist architecture. Your fun nerd fact of the day is that it was built post war 1960’s and 70’s.

These images were captured before the St Jude storms, however if this couple can make brutalist architecture and rain look good, we’ll think they’ll weather anything… and on that pun we will let go and let shutter candy begin!

The Notting Hill Love Engagement of Katie & Jerry

The Notting Hill Love Engagement of Katie & Jerry

January 28, 2014  |  Lovely Couples, Real weddings, UK Weddings  |  1 Comment

This is a short and sweet one – bigger than a little person, but longer than a leprechaun – however we have some gorgeous bright, and sun splashed images from the lens of the one and only Babb Photo – and we are hoping that like a snake charmer these slices of summer might encourage the sun to keep his hat on for a bit longer.

The couple are the lovely and in love Katie and Jerry, and there rather awesome town wedding will be in the next edition of the magazine (yup we are crazy enough to make number 3!).

Laura shared: A super cool couple. A boiling hot day with blazing sunshine. Seeking shade under a tree. Sunglasses on. Sunglasses off. Sunglasses on again. Cupcakes at The Hummingbird Bakery.  Catching up on Katie and Jerry’s wedding plans.  Gritty, urban backdrops mixed in with quirky, pastel houses and the antique shops of Portobello.  Crossing over the railway bridge to shoot in front of Trellick Tower, the iconic brutalist building designed by architect Erno Goldfinger.

For now you can delight in some Notting Hill (better than the Hugh Grant version we tells you!) except we aren’t following floats or blowing whistles at a soundclash, it is a love carnival only.

Let the candy of the shutter begin!

The Eclectic Leopard Print Wedding of Sharon & Paul feat. Elvis

The Eclectic Leopard Print Wedding of Sharon & Paul feat. Elvis

December 13, 2013  |  Love Shoots, Real weddings, UK Weddings  |  3 Comments

Almost every day we get an email saying that someone has a wedding with a bouncy castle, Elvis, with leopard print. We jest; when we saw the pictures first time around our jaw unhinged itself, did the Macarena, followed by the Harlem shake on the table and then reattached itself.  True story.

This wedding has a megaphone and pretty much scream how much character it has.  Just the way that we like it and by the time you throw in the fantastic photography of lens Queen Maureen Du Preez.

Maureen shared: Sharon & Paul were married at Devonshire Terrace in London, a rather stunning venue in the City just down the road from their home. They had a very alternative, quirky wedding; a total reflection of the couple who are into all sorts of interesting activities! Highlights of the day included; Elvis, a bouncy castle & lots of leopard print. Needless to say, I had a lot of fun photographing their big day.

Get your tea and let’s get to rubbernecking at the beautiful day of Sy and Ollie. With much aplomb (and bags of style!) they have pulled off an 80’s inspired wedding and there isn’t a cocktail stick with cheese or pineapple in sight, but a glass of babycham would be a nice to knock back whilst drooling over these.

The beautiful bride, Sy-Anne recently won the Stylist of the Year Award at The Midlands Fashion Awards.  The venue was a purposely chose football club function room for this bold, bodacious and brilliant wedding Solihull.

Let’s Hail Mary and Amen how amazing this wedding is – if ever  a wedding deserved a soundtrack then we think that you should get your ear buds in if you are at work and play some Billy Idol – it’s truly  a nice day for a white wedding.

Let shutter candy awesomeness begin!
