“Seriously – the best photos we could ever have asked for! They are so special and brilliant. I have had so many people write to myself and Alastair and say how they are the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen. They capture the day so incredibly. My Grandma couldn’t make it on the day, and she has just been subjected to the whole slideshow and was left in tears. She really felt like she was part of it. Thank you so much!”

CELIA & ALASTAIR // PUMP HOUSE BATTERSEA PARK BY DOM & LIAM
Our “job” takes us to so many amazing locations throughout the UK and abroad and we are truly thankful that as international wedding photographers we have been so fortunate to see areas of the world both near and far that we may never have seen otherwise – hidden little gems and amazing exotic locations; our world truly is a wonderful sight. That being said though we don’t really care about where we shoot or how grand the event, our work is all about people and personality and however stunning the location or decoration, it’s the bride and groom, their family and friends that really make for a great wedding, everything else is secondary. By focussing first and foremost on personality and composition we hope to create images that would be equally as impactful if taken in an empty field on a cloudy day as in a fairytale palace garnished with the most spectacular decor.
As it happens Celia and Alastair’s wedding took place in an absolutely gorgeous location at Battersea Park for the ceremony and the Pump House Gallery for the reception. It was the hottest day that we shot this year and everything looked absolutely idyllic. As always though the people were most definitely the stars of the wedding, from the gold ninja page boy to the toy-tiger-wearing girl to of course our amazing bride who had two stunning wedding outfits: her stripy black and white dress and her real vintage stunner! With a relaxed atmosphere and crazy dance-floor, it’s fair to say this wedding was right up our street, thanks so much to our gorgeous couple for inviting us to be a part of it.
