Wedding photographers in Foots Cray Meadows pre wed shoot

Last week we were out for a pre wedding shoot on a glorious summers day with our lovely couple Dan and Lisa, this time to an area close to Lisa's family home, the relaxing and pleasant Foots Cray Meadows, Sidcup. Kent.

Taking in woodland, meadows, lush green river banks and the Five Arches Bridge this was a delightful pre cursor to the wedding day a week later at St Paul's Church, Four Elms and the delightful Hever Castle Golf Club, a short distance down the road from one of our favourite Kent wedding venues Hever Castle.

We look forward to publishing Dan and Lisa's wedding day photographs in a few weeks time.

Surrey wedding photographers in Hindhead

Two weeks ago took us to the village of Hindehead, the highest village in Surrey, for the relaxed and beautiful wedding of David and Siobhan.

Officially married the day before at Guildford Register Office, today they were re-enacting the service on a more personal note with family and close friends out in the open air of David's parent's delightful garden.

A lovely couple enjoying an informal and relaxed service on a beautiful day in stunning surroundings.

We wish them our best wishes for their imminent baby.

Woodlands Park Hotel bouquet wedding photography

Early yesterday morning I popped in to see Emma our busy local wedding and event florist and owner of Emma's Floral Designs.

She had just finished making a number of beautiful Rose wedding bouquets and wanted some quick photographs of them before she whisked them off to the grand Woodlands Park Hotel in Cobham.

Once again, some wonderfully beautiful flower displays from Emma for a Surrey wedding venue that oozes old Victorian splendour.

Wedding photographers at Hallmark Hotel Purley

It's the middle of July and the wedding season is in full swing and this afternoon we are with Neetay and Thalia for their combined Greek and Indian wedding ceremony at The Hallmark Hotel Croydon, a Surrey venue we have worked at when it was known as the Aerodrome Hotel.

Our bubbly and friendly couple had only just come back from Australia where they had a small wedding ceremony in the Royal Botanical Gardens in Sydney and today it was a blessing in front of Thalia's close family.

The Greek part of the ceremony includes the crowning of the Bride and Groom with head wreaths (known as 'stefana'), which are then joined by a white ribbon. The Indian part involves them walking around the table (which would usually be a fire) seven times whilst seven vows are read out.

After a few relaxed family wedding photographs on the steps we walked up to the adjacent Airport House for some more wedding pictures outside this once famous airport (Amy Johnson became the first woman to fly solo from here to Australia in 1930 and her plane can be seen today in the Science Museum) and then by the de Havilland Heron airplane, a small 1950s propeller-driven British airliner.

Neetay and Thalia were great to work with and we look forward to seeing them tomorrow evening for their wedding reception at Shirley Park Golf Club.

Merton Register Office Morden Park House wedding photography

Following on from Robert and Helen's pre wedding photo session in Coombe Wood Gardens it was time for the Big Day itself which was a beautifully relaxed and friendly affair at one of our favourite Surrey wedding venues, the lovely Merton Register Office in Morden Park House.

After the group wedding pictures and a romantic walk in Morden Park, it was off by Double Decker bus to the wedding reception held in the fine function room at the welcoming Brewers Inn down in Wandsworth. We left the happy couple after the wedding speeches and after they had indulged in a number of celebratory shots.

Cheers and good health to you both Robert and Helen, you make a lovely couple.
