Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey

Wedding and Engagement Shoot

The arbour at Nonsuch Mansion

Because I’ve had my busiest summer since I started wedding photography my usual practise of blogging each wedding within a few days of the event has had to be put on hold. However this does mean that I can now blog one or two weddings along with the couple’s engagement shoot.

Here we have Rebecca and Ben who chose to marry at Nonsuch Mansion in Surrey. The wedding venue is set in hundreds of acres of parkland and the mansion itself has a completely different feel when not set up for a wedding. Because of this it makes an obvious location for an engagement shoot if the couple is also going to marry there.

I thought it might be a nice idea to create a set of diptychs that contrast the couple on their engagement shoot with images from the wedding captured in similar locations in and around Nonsuch Mansion.

The final photograph below is a (pseudo) selfie that I took of the bride and groom with all of their guests.

Diamond Wedding at the Belvedere Restaurant

Anniversary lunch in Holland Park

Here are a few photographs from a Diamond wedding celebration at the Belvedere restaurant in Holland Park. The happy couple, along with their family and friends enjoyed exclusive use of the Belvedere which is an excellent venue for parties, weddings and celebrations.

There were around 90 guests made up of several generation of family and friends. Whilst the adults were seated in the main dining area downstairs, a special table was set upstairs on the Belvedere’s mezzanine floor to accommodate the children.

You can see from these photographs how photogenic the venue is with its Art Deco interior offering a sympathetic backdrop for the contemporary art that is hung there. Although most of my work here is capturing the Belvedere as a wedding venue it also makes an elegant location for other celebrations too.

Emi & Sho Engagement Shoot in London

Regents Park Engagement Shoot

Here are some images from an engagement shoot in London that I photographed earlier this summer. Emi and Sho are Japanese ex-pats working here in London and for their engagement shoot they really wanted to have photographs taken around their neighbourhood near Regents Park. As you can see it was a gloriously sunny day in London and

The couple were married the next month at Nonsuch Mansion and you can see some of the wonderful photographs from that day here.
