More magazine coverage

One of my weddings from last summer is featured in the latest edition of Wedding Venues and Services magazine. I am particularly pleased with the spread because it is over two whole pages and my credit appears 3 times (sometimes the editors 'forget' altogether).

It is a wedding I remember well as the bride is 'in the business' herself; Caroline owns the Cakes 4 Fun shop in Putney.

The venue was Warren House near Kingston upon Thames and all the flowers were created by LK Lily.

Hartham Park

Friday's wedding was at Hartham Park in Wiltshire. This is the third time I have covered a wedding at this venue and the only downside is that the local Registrars allow NO photography during the ceremony. I think this is a real shame because the room we used has such a lot of natural light even on a gloomy day (which it certainly was). No matter, we still captured some lovely images.

The table flowers were supplied by Passion Floral Design and in the evening Katie and Nic catered for (almost) everybody by providing a chocolate fountain.
Wedding dress and belgian chocolate? Brave lady!

The highlight of the day for me, was the entertainment provided during the breakfast by The 3 Waiters: an act who start by attending the tables then eventually provide a comedy routine that includes some fine opera singing. They had all the guests fooled at first until it became obvious that these guys knew their stuff.

It rained... so what?

On Saturday I was in South East London to photograph the wedding of Hannah and Kevin. We managed to get into the church just before, as predicted, the heavens opened!

The ceremony was held at the wonderfully named Christ's Chapel of Alleyn's College of God's Gift in Dulwich (if you know the area it adjoins the Dulwich Picture Gallery).

Then it was onto the reception at Eltham Palace, a really unique venue and a 'must see' for anybody into Art Deco. The rain hammered down but the guests were happy enough inside, enjoying the decor and the Champagne.

Once everybody had been seated for the Wedding Breakfast I managed to 'borrow' the Bride and Groom for a couple of photos while they relaxed in the Palace's beautiful reception area.

The catering was handled with military precision by Jalapeno under the command of Charles Howard. Their multi-national team of Chefs and 'Butlers' made sure that everybody (including Photographers!) wanted for nothing.
