Samuel & Sophie - St Etheldreda and Middle Temple
 

If you haven’t heard of St Etheldreda’s Chapel, it is well worth a visit. Tucked away on Ely Place away from all the busy streets of Holborn Circus awaits this beautiful and breathtaking chapel with some of the best stained glass windows in London. It was the perfect place for Samuel and Sophie’s wedding. After a wonderful intimate ceremony the guests travelled together to the historic Middle Temple to enjoy some delicious food and drink. A few witty speeches accompanied by a glass of bubbly the bride and groom made their exit to depart on their honeymoon. Here are some of my personal favourites from their day.

“Oliver was our wedding photographer. He was extremely helpful from the outset and it was great to plan things with him. On the day he was discreet but friendly and got some excellent documentary as well as posed shots. We are really grateful to him for a beautiful record of our day. Would definitely recommend him - thank you Oliver!”

Pouya & Nadia - Islington Town Hall

Pouya and Nadia are just perfect for one another and I was thrilled to have been able to document their wedding day. With the groomsmen all suited and booted and their tasks finally completed a swift drink in the pub opposite Islington Town Hall was definitely in order. A small intimate ceremony with friends and family some of whom had travelled in from Sweden was held in the wonderful main room at the town hall.. Nadia & Pouya had written their own vows and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. A short journey down the road and we arrived at the reception in the heart of London’s Square Mile. The Clerkenwell and Social was an amazing venue with plenty of space to be able to dance and believe me this is something that these two definitely had planned. A funny speech about the bride sneaking out to go for a drink by borrowing her neighbours ladders was a personal highlight…

“Oliver photographed my wedding, I think you would be hard pressed to find a better photographer for an event than Oliver. Not only were the photos exceptional quality, original and perfectly documented our incredible day, the level of professionalism and going above and beyond before and after our wedding to ensure everything went smoothly was fantastic. Oliver is not only an artist but just a wonderful person to have capturing the most important of days. He deals very well with rambunctious groomsmen too!”

Brian & Louise - The Slaughters Manor House

A quintessential English summer wedding in the beautiful Cotswold village of Lower Slaughter was the perfect setting for Brian and Louise’s wedding day which was held in a stunning Cotswold stone Manor House.

After a drive through the local country lanes in a racing green vintage Morgan car, the groom and his best man were ready and nervously waited for the nuptials to begin.   

With their family and friends gathered to witness this intimate ceremony there were a few giggles along the way as Brian fluffed a word or two in excitement, but eventually the words ‘I do’ were said and celebrations could begin!

Confetti, canapés and champagne followed quickly and guests mingled on the perfectly landscaped gardens in front of The Manor House, with the day made more perfect thanks to the British summer weather holding up well!

All that was left was to do was cut the cake and dance the night away...

The Slaughters Manor House was the perfect venue for such a lovely couple to celebrate their love for one another-below are just some of my favourite captures from the day.
