Just one pic from our latest unusual wedding abroad - in Iceland! This picture was taken towards the end of the Canadian couple's wedding day, by the Blue Lagoon: bitterly cold though! They were almost as blue as the lagoon but determined to get the pics they wanted!
Below is a confetti picture from a summer wedding this year at the Olympic Lagoon in Cyprus, in Paphos: so much fun! A very different environment though as you can imagine. - sun, sand and sea.
Below is a whole slideshow of photos from a Nigerian English couple's wedding inside Dewsbury Town Hall. You get to see how much fun natural wedding pictures can be for the guests, as they don't have to stop what they are doing! It was a winter wedding so the couple chose to stay inside in the warm.
We love fun weddings anywhere in the world - this is one is also from the above couple's wedding in Cyprus at the Olympic Lagoon in Paphos, taken indoors, as we walked towards their evening wedding reception.
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. We photograph and video all kinds of weddings, unusual and traditional. Whatever your culture or background or religion, am sure you can appreciate the beauty and diversity of the wedding images on our site - spread over several pages - and hopefully imagine yourself here too, assuming you are a bride or groom to be!
This photo montage of wedding pictures below shows 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 Ethiopian 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 as well as all over the UK.
