The Refinery Wedding Photography in London

Hampton Court Palace and The Refinery Wedding Photography

Mike and Selina's Chinese English wedding took place between two incredible venues and fused the colour and energy of a Hong Kong wedding with the elegance of an English ceremony and was an incredible blend of the two cultures.

The day began with Hong Kong style gatecrashing games in which the groom and his entourage must pass a series of playfully humiliating games in order to prove that he is worthy to gain access to the bride. These games included eating and drinking some ingenious concoctions as well as passing various items between each other using different body parts. Gatecrashing always leads to some amazing reactions and is so much fun to photograph.

Following the gatecrashing, the families took part in some traditional Chinese tea ceremonies before heading to the Little Banqueting house at Hampton Court Palace for the wedding ceremony and bride and groom photography portraits.

The wedding reception took place at The Refinery in New Street Square London and was filled with lots of laughter...especially when the groom and his best men re-enacted the three way dance scene from the movie Romy & Michele's High School reunion step for step. This was followed by an incredible performance from musician Kelly Barnes who kept the party going long into the night.

Here are a few images from this Chinese style English wedding at Hampton Court Palace and The Refinery.

East Sussex Wedding Photography at Buxted Park

Buxted Park Hotel in East Sussex is a beautifully luxurious hotel set in stunning parkland that made an incredible backdrop for Rob and Poppy's wedding.

The day started with both Rob and Poppy getting ready in the Buxted Park Mansion before their stunning outdoor ceremony on the hotel lawn. The whole day was so much fun and the couple are extremely lucky to be surrounded by such a great group of friends and family that made the day so special.

Rob and Poppy added so many great touches to the day including an incredible performance by some singing waiters that had everybody up on their feet and a chrome camper van photo booth that was a great hit with all the guests.

The wedding day fell on one of the most beautiful summer days and we were lucky enough to be treated to a spectacular sunset that allowed us to get some great couple portraits in amazing light.

Ritz Hotel London Wedding Photography

Pakistani Wedding Photography at the Ritz in London

The Ritz Hotel in Piccadilly, London is one of the most iconic and luxurious hotels in the world and was the perfect setting for Jibraun and Sonya's Pakistani wedding celebration. Following a stunning pre wedding South Asian Mehndi at the Sheraton Grand in Park Lane, the wedding event itself was another incredible event.

The day began with the bride and groom getting ready in the lovely suites at the Ritz and as the couple are from Los Angeles in the USA they held an American style first look in front of the Ritz before heading in for a beautifully emotional ceremony.

The wedding reception was held between the Marie Antoinette and Music room which are both incredibly luxurious entertaining spaces and an incredible setting for this South Asian wedding celebration.

After dinner there was plenty of dancing and fun followed by an emotional Rukhsati send off as family send the bride off to her new life. 

Here are a few images from this beautiful Pakistani wedding at the Ritz in London and you can check out some images from the pre wedding Mehndi here.

Pre Wedding Photography at the Park Lane Sheraton London

Pakistani Pre Wedding Mehndi Photography in London

Jibraun and Sonya's Pakistani wedding in London was a truly international event and began with an incredible opening event at the Park Lane Sheraton Grand in London.

This incredible American couple are based in sunny Los Angeles, California and travelled over to London to celebrate their wedding in the UK with friends and family from around the world. The day before their main wedding event at the Ritz in London, the Mehndi Raat at the Sheraton was the perfect way to begin these celebrations.

Before the Mehndi event, we spent the afternoon exploring London and capturing some beautiful wedding portraits around some of London's iconic landmarks such as Big Ben, Westminster, Hyde Park and the surrounding areas before the Mehndi Raat began.

The Mehndi started with some Rasms blessings followed by traditional bhangra dancing with lots of energy and colour and it was a fantastic start to this beautifully international wedding.

Here are a few images from this South Asian pre wedding event at the Park Lane Sheraton in Piccadilly.

Peak District National Park Pre Wedding Photography

Pre Wedding Photography in the Peak District National Park

UK countryside pre wedding photography is always incredible and the Peak District National Park in Derbyshire is one of the most stunning locations in all of England and was a perfect setting for the second part to Ken and Claudia's engagement shoot.

Following a beautiful central London pre wedding session in the busy city we met up again a couple of days later to explore the dramatic scenery of the Peak District and we were blessed with the most incredible weather which started with some very dark and dramatic skies which cleared to leave us with a stunning sunset.

The day began around Ramshaw Rocks with some steep climbs to reach the best spots before we headed down into Gradbach and the River Dane for some beautiful tree lined scenery and ended up at the Roaches for some more climbing and breathtaking views as the sun set.

Ken and Claudia were so much fun to work with and threw themselves into the long hikes and difficult terrain (especially in a wedding dress) to hunt for the perfect backdrops.

Thanks again to Lu at Hair and Makeup by Lu for her great work and company throughout the day. Here are a few images from this pre wedding adventure shoot in the Peak District National Park and you can click here to see the London pre wedding photography session with this beautiful couple.

About the location: The Peak District National Park is located in central England in the Derbyshire area and offers breathtaking views, dramatic scenery and incredible limestone valleys. The Peak District is famous for its steep valleys and gritstone ridges and is the perfect setting for a UK countryside pre wedding shoot. Areas such as Dovedale, Lathkill Dale, Pennine Way, Ramshaw Rocks and the Roaches makes this one of the best English National Parks for engagement photography and pre wedding shoots for couples travelling from Hong Kong, Singapore, China and the rest of Asia.
