This picture is from a recent Eritrean bride and Jamaican groom's wedding photoshoot all round London. You can see more on our Facebook page. We had a lovely Iraqi couple's wedding straight after in Manchester, so only a few pictures on so far...
** I'll be photographing a wedding in Cuba, in Havana, in December, so may not be very quick to respond to messages now. (Lucky me escaping the cold for a bit!) I'll be back before Christmas though, as have several Asian weddings then, in Bradford, Leicester, Dewsbury and Burnley.
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. Out of respect to my Asian wedding clients I can usually only show details online, rather than faces, but on this occasion my Eritrean bride and Jamaican groom had their photoshoot in front of a crowd in London! Whatever your culture or background, and sure you can appreciate the beauty of these wedding images, and hopefully imagine yourself here too, assuming you are a bride or groom to be!
These wedding pictures show how much fun unposed, natural, wedding photography can be. This style is also known as documentary or reportage wedding photography. Most people though as soon as they spot my lens pointing at them, immediately start putting on a smile and posing for the camera, so I have to use a long lens and be very quick to get the shots before they notice me!
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!
