WEDDINGS

The grandeur of Greenwich, the history of the city, the open spaces of kew - London is a fabulous place to get married and we are lucky to have photographed many weddings across this wonderful city.
We know just how to capture those amazing backdrops - while still keeping you centre stage. Here are some of our favourite spots:
 
GREENWICH
Riverside location, maritime history and magnificent buildings, Greenwich has everything you need for a city wedding. We are approved photographers for the Trafalgar Tavern. With breath-taking views in the Nelson Rooms from the 02 to Canary Wharf and the Shard, this wedding venue is impressive!

CITY OF LONDON
London’s historic centre is not just about business – it also boasts some fantastic wedding venues from the classic to the contemporary. We love to photograph weddings here – and as it’s our home patch we know just where to take those perfect shots.

KEW GARDENS
Beautiful Kew is one of our favourite places – and we’ve sought out all the best spots for beautiful wedding photographs, whatever the season.

THE SWAN AT THE GLOBE
We are so honoured to be approved photographers for The Swan at the Globe. Located at the iconic Shakespeare’s Globe theatre on the South Bank with its views across to St Paul's Cathedral and the City Of London, it really is an incredible wedding venue.

WE LOVE LONDON!

"James and Kerrie were a pleasure to have as our wedding photographers - they were friendly and helpful throughout and great communicating. They went out of their way to ensure we were happy from start to finish. It was fantastic to have 2 photographers on the day t"o give different perspectives that we wouldn't have had with most photographers.

They are both passionate about their work and we have lots of fantastic photos of our big day and a beautiful photobook to treasure. We highly recommend James and Kerrie as they go from strength to strength in photography to capture your special moments.

Rob & Sarah"

"Fantastic! So glad we chose James and Kerrie...super friendly and made us both feel so comfortable. Even though it rained on the day of our engagement shoot, they still managed to get some great shots. Cannot wait to see the photos and for James and Kellie to capture special moments on our day!! Highly recommend!

Louisa & Lee"

"Absolutely incredible wedding photographers - from the moment we met them they made us feel at ease and relaxed and got us even more excited for the big day when we had our final meeting. Their passion and enthusiasm for photography and weddings really shines through.
On the day, James and Kerrie were superb; insuring we got all the photos we wanted as well as being subtle, polite and friendly throughout the day - it felt like having two extra friends with us! It was also lovely that they were a husband and wife team as they had great chemistry between them which added to us feeling happy and relaxed when we had our couple photos. 
Everyone commented, even long after they had gone, what great photographers and friendly people they were. We cannot thank them enough for the beautiful sneak peak shots we have received and simply cannot wait to receive the rest! 

Many, many thanks,

Sarah and Simon"

"Amazing Amazing Amazing!! 
No words to describe how wonderful this duo really is. They help you relax for the camera, are very friendly, professional and amazingly talented.

They definitely know how to get that perfect shot. Can't thank them enough for making it super-special for us.
We would totally recommend James & Kerrie over and over.

ENGAGMENT SHOOT
£250

An engagement or pre-wedding shoot is the perfect way to get some amazing images of yourselves as a couple in a relaxed and enjoyable session. 

It is not only a good way to get to know us and how we work, it is also a great way for our couples to get comfortable in front of the camera! Because let’s be honest, most of us tense up when a camera is pointed our way. So we walk our couples through the process to help them feel relaxed, give them a few tips on their posture, and most importantly, make the experience fun!

As a London bride, we would recommend using the backdrop of the City of London or Greenwich Park for your shoot, or even iconic Tower Bridge. We are local photographers to these areas so we know the best places to take you (and how to avoid the crowds).  

- An engagement shoot lasts 1 hour 30 minutes.

- 2 photographers, James & Kerrie on your shoot.

- Choice of either Greenwich Park, Tower Bridge or the City of London.

- 25 images uploaded in colour on to a private online gallery for you to download. 

Its a great way to get to know how we work and what to expect on your wedding day so you both feel relaxed and enjoy the day!

Who get’s married on a Tuesday? School teachers, that’s who!! Sarah & Simon wanted to say ‘I do’ as soon as they broke up for their summer break, and that’s just what they did!! 

The bride got ready at The Mitre in the heart of Greenwich, London. Along with her three bridesmaids, they listened to music and enjoyed a glass of bubbly whilst chatting about the day ahead. The sun was shining, and as Sarah stepped into her wedding dress, everybody was taken back at how beautiful she looked!! This Justin Alexander dress was made for her!

The groom got ready at home, he wanted a photo with his groomsmen overlooking London before heading to St Alfege Church to wait for his bride. As the bride walked down the aisle, James ran up stairs to capture the true glory of this impressive Church.

After a very touching ceremony, everybody headed outside for the confetti throwing. Even a few schoolchildren from Sarah & Simons school turned up to wish them well!

The route master bus arrived and took everyone to the Trafalgar Tavern ready for the evening celebrations. The Nelson rooms at the Trafalgar Tavern were adorned with beautiful flowers, the guests were seated and everyone was treated to a delicious meal. 

Just after the speeches were made, the most beautiful sunset was happening outside by the Old Royal Naval College so we whisked the newlyweds outside for some amazing couple shots! Oh it was magical!! They headed back inside to cut their wedding cake, then took to the dance floor for that all important first dance as husband and wife.

It was Autumn 2014 when we first met Annie & George in Victoria Park in London. We spent a few hours photographing them as they laughed and chatted, you could tell these two were just made for each other!
Fast forward to January 2016, we received an email from Annie & George telling us they were getting married and asked us if would we photograph their day!! It was to be held at Kew Gardens in June 2017, we couldn’t have said yes any faster!

On the morning of the wedding day, Annie got ready with her five bridesmaids at the Coach & Horses on Kew Green. The bridesmaids poured champagne and toasted the bride, there was laughter and a very relaxed atmosphere which set the precedent for the day ahead. The bouquets arrived, oh they were so pretty! As the bride stepped into her Suzanne Neville dress, everyone in the room, including Kerrie, gasped! She looked so beautiful! 

Annie & George's favourite film is Love Actually, as we were leaving for the ceremony, Thomas Brodie-Sangster who played Sam in the film, was having a drink at the bar with friends!! One of the bridesmaids asked him if he would mind having a photo with Annie, and he kindly agreed! Annie was over the moon!

Just down the road at The Kew Gardens Hotel, the groom was adding the finishing touches to his speech. George then made his way to Kew Gardens after enjoying a relaxed drink wth his groomsmen. 

The ceremony was held in Cambridge Cottage, adorned with flowers and the piano playing, the bride made her way down the aisle on the arm of Dad. As the registrar performed the service, Annie & George smiled and laughed, the look of love on their faces was enough to melt anyone's heart. We all headed outside for a bubble confetti shot! Then we where whisked away in a Kew Gardens buggy with the newlyweds to capture some amazing portrait shots of them around the Gardens & waterlily house.

Back at Cambridge Cottage, the speeches were made, delicious food was served and the drinks flowed. The wedding Coordinator Sophie made sure everybody was looked after. The tables looked so elegant with jars full of wild flowers.
The grooms mum made their wedding cake. And what a grand job she did! The bride & groom cut the wedding cake then took to the dance floor for their first dance before asking everybody to join in with them. 
Just as the sun was setting, we asked the bride & groom if they wanted a few last photos around Kew Gardens, as we headed outside, a rainbow appeared!! It was so magical! And what a lovely end to a perfect day.
