London Wedding Photography - St Stephens Church in Hampstead
It was wonderful to return to St Stephens Church in Hampstead to capture the wedding of Ellie and Sam a couple of months ago. I started the day meeting up with Ellie at the York & Albany opposite Regents Park. She had reserved a lovely room which offered enough space for makeup, hair , bridesmaid, parents ... oh, and the photographer ! Working very candidly I was able to capture some lovely moments during the bridal preparations.
It was then a quick dash in an uber up to St Stephens Church to meet up with Sam and the wedding party ahead of the emotional ceremony. To say the weather was inclement would have been an understatement, however it did nothing to dampen the spirits of the happy couple and guests. Sam is a toy designer (yes I know, very cool) and his work and that of his best man was on display with a very original cake topper depicting the happy couple.When you get the chance take a look at Sam's website to get a glimpse into his creative world.
Despite most of my work being candid and unposed, I often suggest to couples that they spend a little time together alone just to take the day in and reflect on the occasion. This 'couple time' is perfect for a few images of the couple together and despite the awful weather (my cameras are weather sealed unlike me) I was able to pop outside, grab some shelter in the cloisters of the church and capture some lovely, relaxed images of the happy couple.
After the wedding breakfast there were three emotional speeches from Ellie's father, Sam and his best man Nick. It was then full steam ahead into the party, preceded by a re-scheduled confetti arch as by this stage the rain had eased. An extremely well choreographed first dance rounded the coverage off. Congratulations to Ellie and Sam for organising a wonderful wedding day and for being such great sports when it came to embracing the awful weather !

Well this made a change for this summer, a wet wedding !!! We have been blessed some amazing weather this year but the heavens opened for Katie and Josh's lovely Longstowe Hall Wedding. But did the happy couple let the weather dampen their spirits ..... not in the slightest !!!! I always get asked the question by prospective clients, "what happens if it rains " ? My stock answer is always the same, EMBRACE IT ! and this is exactly what Katie and Josh did. Whatever the weather, Longstowe Hall always looks amazing and today was no exception. The lawns looked lush and the borders were spectacular. Here's a little feedback from the newly-weds :
"David did such a wonderful job capturing our wedding day. He was a pleasure to deal with in the lead up to our wedding and on the day, dealing with the rainy weather easily and finding several solutions for us so that we could still have some outdoor pictures. He was inobtrusive and captured some lovely natural shots which have turned out to be our favourites. We are so pleased with our wedding pictures and really will treasure them forever, we are so pleased we chose David as our wedding photographer."
Such lovely feedback from an amazing couple.
