Stephy & Matthew live in Hong Kong and contacted me to ask if I would photograph them here in the UK, before they get married in Hong Kong next June. Unfortunately Matthew’s Grandparents will not be able to travel to Hong Kong next year, so the pre-wedding shoot was a mix of couple shots for Stephy & Matthew and some images of them with Matthew’s Grandparents, to try & replicate some of the shots, which will be missing on their wedding day.
We met at the Methodist Church in Goring, which had been kindly rented to us for a few hours. Stephy surprised me by appearing in her beautiful wedding dress, so we really did have a mini dress rehearsal for the day itself.
For the second part of the styled shoot, we headed to Goring Beach, so Stephy could seek out her first UK beach hut and see the full glory of the sunny UK seaside. We aptly ended the session in the grounds where Matthew’s Grandparents live.
I was lucky enough to meet Georgina and Chris at a wedding fair in Brighton West Sussex and was delighted to get the chance to work with them!
I knew photographing Georgina and Chris was going to be a joy, as it was so clear that they were incredibly excited about their day and genuinely smitten with each other, which I knew would make for some really natural, beautiful photographs.
The pre wedding shoot took place in the same location as the ceremony would be held, at St Mary's Church in Horsham, West Sussex. The church holds fond memories for me personally, which makes it a really special venue.
The 12th century church is set in a quiet, picturesque location at the far end of the causeway and is the oldest building in the town. Inside the church is spectacular and holds some modern twists amongst some of the ancient interior.
The photographic shoot was a chance to set the scene, to test the likely light, outside on the day and for Georgina and Chris to have some less formal photographs, which they could use as invites for their Sussex wedding.
I love the colours and obvious love between Chris & Georgina, which all came together in the shots. Her are a few from the day.
I absolutely loved this shoot because Jack and Leony were so nervous beforehand but totally lost themselves in the moment. They have a great story and a wonderful energy together and I hope the images really capture this. The session took place at Boxhill, Surrey on a lovely autumn afternoon.
Weddings & Dreams Bridal Show @ the Waterfront Hotel, Brighton
Special creations by Jane hosted the Waterfront Hotel Weddings & Dreams Bridal show. It was a great opportunity for me to get to network with other professional and friendly exhibitors, as well as lovely brides to be!
Special Creations and Claire from Creative Creation also came together to organise a fashion catwalk show to launch a new range of pre-loved wedding dresses. East Sussex Dance choreographed a stunning catwalk show, with the ever fabulous Lipstick & Gunpowder providing make up and hair styling make overs! Thanks also to Lucy from Lucibelle Tiaras, who provided the .... Tiaras!
Here are a few photographs of the catwalk show and various exhibitors stands. I have tried to tag everyone pictured but might have missed someone. Please feel free to give me a nudge! If you would like a copy of any of the images please get in touch.
Located in historic Windsor, Beaumont Estate is definitely majestic; set in 40 acres of wonderful grounds. The 14th century chapel really sets this venue apart and certainly gave Kavita and James' wedding an extra wow factor.
On the day, the great British springtime rolled us a rainy grey day, so we were pretty much kept under roof and away from the grounds. The weather was unfortunate but in no way stopped the radiance of the occasion, with Kavita and James showing off smiles and sunshine of their own. It was a massive privilege to be able to capture the show of love between them. I hope the images reflect this love and their obvious intimacy. Being part of the day was a real pleasure. I loved listening to guests speak so fondly of Kavita and James, the story of their coming together and the journey so far and I know that the road ahead is going to be a good one.
On the 10th February 2016, Daren Baker Photography came together with professional wedding specialists to create a unique bridal photography shoot for the Waterfront Hotel, Brighton. Gemma Coulton (pictured) had good reason to be the bride on the wedding styled photographic shoot. On Gemma's actual wedding day, her young son fell through the stairway on his way to the ceremony and needless to say the wedding day was disrupted. Despite managing to rush though the ceremony, most of the wedding day was spent in the local hospital, so not quite what was planned on their special day.
The styled shoot meant Gemma could be treated to a make up makeover by Felicity Le Prevost and hair styling by Lipstick & Gunpowder a boutique salon in the South Lanes of Brighton.
Venue styling was created and perfectly executed by Special Creations by Jane.
