What could be more fun than a powder paint fight?!? Environmentally friendly powder paint I have to say! Otilia and Adrian wanted their engagement photoshoot taken in a Scots Pine tree forest, if this was anything to go by, photographing their wedding next year should be interesting, looking forward to it!
Sofia and Angjelin were married at Beach Blanket Babylon, an great little venue in Notting Hill. The day was filled with emotion, but I’ll let the pictures tell the story!
The lush African forests of Karen, South West Nairobi, provided the most stunning backdrop for John and Katie’s outdoor wedding, where most interestingly, the movie Out of Africa was set. In the picturesque grounds of Katie’s family home, the wedding celebrations took place under a gorgeous marquee, and despite the continual rain in the days beforehand, the skies cleared and we had perfect weather from beginning to end. With tiny twinkling lights beautiful flashes of green and orange throughout, and a scattering of original, personal touches everywhere, this wedding was lovely to photograph.
Karen has some amazing spots for both classic and fun wedding photographs. We discovered clearings between beautifully tall, overhanging trees, gorgeous country roads awash with raw African red soil, and even a fun, quirky Nairobi bus stop! The perfect opportunities for a wedding photographer to capture some memorable shots for the happy couple!
I have many amazing memories photographing this beautiful wedding, from the hearty welcome, to the friendly guests, and of course being able to spend the day capturing special moments for the bride and groom. One memory I would like to erase however is when I came face-to-face with a gecko in my room! They terrify me, fortunately for me though, (but unfortunately for the gecko), it met a sorry and soggy end after being flushed, rather hastily, down the toilet!
Wow, this wedding was memorable for so many reasons! When Elizabeth and Andrea contacted me about their plans for their wedding I knew it was going to be something special. They were married in the idyllic Italian town of Ravello, which is found on the stunning Amalfi Coast. The wedding took place at Villa Cimbrone within a magnificent park, beautifully located between the town and the Mediterranean Sea. Villa Cimbrone dates back to the 11th century, and is a historical site with an assortment of enchanting botanical gardens. With rustic Italian charm and detailed features, the picturesque setting provided the most stunning location for Andrea and Elizabeth’s wedding.
Following the ceremony, the bridal party all boarded a boat for a ride to the neighbouring town of Positano. Both Ravello and Positano looked picture-perfect from the sea! Against a backdrop of romantic coastal towns and high scenic mountains, we captured some truly amazing shots.
The wedding breakfast took place overlooking the rugged Amalfi coastline, and as the sun started setting, friends and family danced their way late into the night. When the music faded and guests could dance no more, twinkling candle lanterns gently lit the way home.
The Amalfi Coast provided the most perfect location to capture beautiful wedding memories. Though I have shot weddings in nearby Positano, this was my first time to beautiful Ravello. With guests travelling from the US, Europe and beyond, this was certainly a fun and memorable celebration. As a European wedding photographer, it is an awesome privilege to be able to travel to such wonderful locations, and be part of such an important day…but it’s the people who make it special and this wedding was no exception! I wish I could shoot this wedding all over again :)
A single frame from Katie and John’s wedding in Kenya. I will have more to share on this wedding later but wanted to give you a taste now. I hope “you like” ;)
