Naomi & Daniel

Naomi & Daniel - Photographs from their Worthing wedding

This was the first of my Worthing based weddings this year and first time photographing in the Worthing Chambers, with it’s fantastic high ceilings and high slim windows, allowing for some lovely light to fill the room. Naomi chose not to have getting ready shots, so it was straight to the ceremony where an emotional Daniel arrived, holding back tears of nerves and excitement in readiness for the unfolding. Naomi arrived shortly after with her Dad, oozing smiles and donning her stunning white wedding dress, accompanied with her beautiful bouquet of sunflowers.

Some couples hold back the emotion, keep it hidden in the English kind of way that we do but not Naomi & Daniel. The tears of joy and the sweet similes between them, especially during their wedding vowels, really showed off the love for us all to see. Lovely moments of embrace between them, which are shown here.

Following the ceremony, I drove Naomi & Daniel to the reception at the Thomas & Becket, for the guests to dine and drink in the company of the newly weds.

Here are a collection of images from the day.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You absolutely captured the love and happiness that was in abundance that day! X

Stephy & Matthew's pre wedding styled photography shoot

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.

Kavita & James Wedding at Windsor, 26th March 2016

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. 

Styled Bridal Shoot at the WaterFront Hotel, Brighton.

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.
