Asian bride by the window at sunset 

Natural wedding pictures are usually the most expressive, but most couples also need a few posed photos to get the best out of them on their wedding day.  The one above is of an Asian bride by the window, lit by the gloriously warm gold light of the late afternoon winter sunshine at Davenport Green Hall in Cheshire. Whatever your culture or background, and sure you can appreciate the beauty of the light in this wedding image, and hopefully imagine yourself here too, assuming you are a bride to be!  The groom was wonderful as well, so I really enjoyed taking their pictures, and covering the whole wedding reception Walimah, so it was a shame they didn't find me for their actual ceremony the week before in London. We were already booked anyway, so it is a good idea to contact us early if you want Elaine and Jorge taking pictures and video at your wedding!

International wedding photography. The first row in the wedding pics above is of a beach wedding in the Seychelles. The second row shows a bride sitting on her bed in Pakistan, then a romantic kiss between the Egyptian groom and Ukrainian bride, then an Ethiopain and Ghanaian wedding in London of the throwing of the bouquet, then the black and white photo I call my Romeo and Juliet picture as they are so sweet,  then two cute kids at a wedding in Scotland, and a natural light picture of an Asian bride's Dupatta - or jewelled veil. The final row shows an unusual wedding in the Ice Hotel in Sweden, an exotic wedding at Cap Lazare in The Seychelles, and an Art Bedroom in The Ice Hotel. We just love taking photos or video at weddings abroad!
