HADAR & DAN // ISLINGTON TOWN HALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY BY DOM & LIAM
These words are the kind of adjectives that we hope people will think of when they see our photography. Whilst we have found over the years that our images don’t necessarily attract a certain kind of wedding, our work certainly seems to appeal to a particular kind of couple. One thing is clear: our brides and grooms first and foremost are passionate about photography.
Sometimes that’s because they are photographers themselves (from weddings to street or even to landscapes!) Often it is their hobby or they feel an affinity for it due to working in a creative field. Sometimes they just love a certain type of imagery without even really knowing anything about it because they simply have an eye for the type of composition and moments they love. The wonderful thing about this is that the result is the most diverse range of weddings you could possibly imagine taking place all over the world from Krakow to Yorkshire with weddings in castles, teepees, post offices(!), hotels, barns, mansions, village halls, railway stations and a particular favourite of ours, pub weddings.
CITY WEDDINGS AND STREET STYLE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY – THE PERFECT MATCH
It would be difficult to argue against streety, layered, ‘multiple stories in one shot’ wedding photography being a natural fit with London pub weddings. We absolutely love the challenge of creating our style in any awesome environment we find ourselves in but there is no doubt that Hadar and Dan’s wedding at Islington Town Hall and The Island Queen Islington was a perfect match for us and our style. From the first message received from this ace couple “We love your photos and couldn’t direct or produce anything quite so special” we knew that we were going to get along famously and that our non-directive, candid style was going to be the perfect fit for us all.
The wedding spanned some of the coolest parts of London on the hottest day of the summer. Firstly the ceremony took place at one of our favourite spots – The Islington Town Hall before we took a quick detour to Primrose Hill for a beautiful and almost spontaneous Jewish ceremony in front of the London skyline before finally the vintage routemaster bus took us on to The Island Queen pub.
In conclusion it was almost impossible to pick our favourite moments but here are just a few. Nothing staged. Nothing posed. Just real moments.
