Adriana and Liam were married at Highfield Church in Southampton on a wet Saturday in February. It was a lovely personal service, with prayers, readings and musical accompaniment from their friends and family during the service. After they were married everyone had tea and cake in the church before heading off to Romsey for the reception at Annie’s Tearooms in Kimbridge. The quaint restaurant and teashop was a cosy setting for drinks and dinner, decorated with pretty bunting and teapot table centres. After the funny and teary speeches, the tables were cleared aside and they celebrated into the evening with a Ceilidh. Here are some photos from their day…

Kirsty and Ben were married on the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus at the Aphrodite Hills Resort. Set on the rocky coastline overlooking the sea, the resort has a rugged unspoilt beach down a cliff, with views of the stunning sunset. The day after the wedding we went to the deserted beach for more portraits to really take advantage of the location. Kirsty was willing to get sandy and eventually soaking in her wedding dress, and we got some fun and romantic shots of the newly weds on the beach.
A Day After portrait session is an ideal way to really capture the beautiful setting and atmosphere of your wedding abroad at a more relaxed pace. There isn’t always a lot of time on the wedding day for photos, and that’s not really how you want to be spending a big part of your day. With less restrictions on time and location we can explore more locations with less limitations. You do not have to get wet or ‘Trash the Dress’, or even be in your wedding attire for the portraits. A Day After portrait session is included in my special destination wedding packages. Get in touch if you are getting married abroad and looking for a photographer email@example.com
According to legend, Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love, was born in the waves breaking on the coast of the beautiful Mediterranean island of Cyprus. A bit of legend, coupled with the sunny climate and beautiful setting, makes Cyprus a perfect location for a wedding. I love a wedding abroad, having had my own wedding in Italy, so when Kirsty & Ben asked me to photograph their Cyprus wedding I jumped at the chance.
They were married at Aphrodite Hills Resort on the outskirts of Paphos, a place where they had previously enjoyed holidays together with friends and family. The luxurious resort is set on the rocky coastline near to Petra Tou Rominou (Aphrodite’s Rock), surrounded by golf course and lush Mediterranean landscaping and overlooks the sparkling blue sea. A big group travelled from the UK for their wedding and it was a great place for everyone to enjoy a holiday. Jeff and I spent a few days out there exploring the Island and were welcomed to the group on the eve of the wedding with a traditional Cypriot Mezze in a hillside taverna.
The day of the wedding was a typical Cyprus scorcher, with clear blue skies and blazing sunshine. I joined Kirsty at her mum’s villa, for a relaxed morning getting ready with her family and the bridesmaids. The wedding was held on the terrace of the hotel and Kirsty and Ben were married in a beautiful open air ceremony. A relaxed drinks reception was held on the sunset terrace and as the sun slipped below the horizon the group transferred to the golf club, which was decorated with seashells, driftwood and lit by candles in hurricane lanterns. Everyone tucked into the amazing Mediterranean buffet, and danced under the stars on the warm summer evening.
One of the things I love the most about photographing weddings is that I get to meet some fun and lovely people. Ben & Kirsty were so welcoming to my husband and I, and we spent several days in their company celebrating with them and their closest friends and family in this beautiful place, and can see they are very much in love and so suited to each other. We really wish you guys the very best, and thank you for making ‘working’ so easy and enjoyable.
I am available to photograph destination weddings in Cyprus and other locations all over the world. If you are planning a wedding abroad, have a look at my special destination wedding packages, and get in touch to talk about your plans. firstname.lastname@example.org
Alison & Liam had a 50′s style rock n roll wedding at Botley Hill Farmhouse in Surrey. They are such a fun couple together, and they planned a wedding that was reflective of their personalities and alternative style. Alison was Marilyn Monroe’s cooler tattooed lookalike in her 50′s rockabilly wedding dress, accented with red dotty shoes and beads. Liam wore a mod style suit with a red gingham shirt and slick black waistcoat and tie.
The warm and personal ceremony was held at Croydon Town Hall with just close friends and family. The couple left in a vintage VW campervan, and we stopped en route for some portraits in the lovely afternoon sun. Arriving at Botley Hill Farmhouse, more guests were waiting to greet the newlyweds. The marquee in the pub garden was decorated with the rockabilly theme, with tables named after places along Route 66. Liam made an awesome replica gas pump which doubled as a card postbox. They had black and red cupcakes, with a day of the dead style skeleton cake topper. The table settings and favours were pin badges made with their own designs. After the wedding breakfast there were speeches by a whole host of friends and family, all with something funny but also something heartfelt to say to the happy couple. More guests arrived for the evening’s celebrations, and danced into the night with a disco of alternative classics (a refreshing change from Rihanna for someone who goes to too many wedding discos!) It was an absolute pleasure to be there for the wedding of two fun & happy people, so very meant for each other- congrats Liam & Alison! Here are some photos of their day…
Gemma and Andrew were married at the National Trust estate Hinton Ampner near Alresford this summer. It’s a grand old house, with beautiful flower gardens and formal hedges and lawns overlooking the most stunning views. Gemma had a busy morning with her troupe of 6 bridesmaids and family bustling to get ready for the wedding. She arrived at Hinton Ampner in a grand Rolls Royce, wearing an elegant lace dress, her bridesmaids in red. The emotional ceremony was held in the main hall of the country house, with personalised vows and readings. Afterwards guests enjoyed the sunny afternoon on the lawn looking out over the Hampshire countryside. The wedding had a loose Victorian theme, and Gemma & Andrew added lots of vintage touches to the decoration of the marquee, with a black, white and burgundy colour scheme. We had talked about their theme when we met up first, and it was cool that they managed to build the picture frame wall that we planned. Guests were able to grab a Victorian paper mask or top hat and pose for photos in the empty frames. Gemma and Andrew wanted a formal but fun feel to the day, and I think managed to pull off the elegance and occasion befitting the location, while enjoying a relaxed and happy wedding. Here are some photos from their day…
