Hedsor House Wedding Photography Buckinghamshire

Buckinghamshire Winter Wedding Photography at Hedsor House in Taplow

Hedsor House in Taplow, Buckinghamshire is one of my all time favourite wedding venues and was an incredible location for Shakil and Thushara's fairytale winter wedding.

Shakil and Thushara took full advantage of this magnificent venue and had planned a fairytale day for this winter wedding. The day began in the bridal suite at Hedsor with Thushara, her friends and close family getting ready before the most romantic ceremony in the impressive Centre Hall at Hedsor House. A string quartet played for Thushara's entrance and the wedding ceremony was a very emotional one that ended with the couple exiting the ceremony to the E.T theme song!

After the ceremony, guests moved into the drawing room and boudoir for drinks and canapés and were created by a fairytale forest complete with a magic mirror and a fairytale tree to hang messages on. Jo and Juliet of JJ Occasions had done an amazing job of putting everything together and the details that helped to pull everything together were so well thought out.

The rest of the day lived up to the fairytale theme and included some very emotional speeches which were followed by a pretty epic first dance that culminated with a flash mob finale that signalled the start of the party and the talented Hot Shots performed an amazing set. Shakil and Thushara exited the wedding under a shower of sparklers and it was the perfect way to end this beautiful day.

Hedsor House is a stunning Georgian style mansion which is set beautifully in the Buckinghamshire hillside overlooking the River Thames and is an incredibly unique venue that offers so many opportunities for a perfectly one-off wedding day.

Orchard Hotel Wedding Photography Singapore

Singapore Wedding Photography at Orchard Hotel

After working with Zhi and Ivana for their pre wedding photography in the Cotswolds I was honoured when they asked me to fly over to Singapore for their wedding celebrations at the Orchard Hotel.

I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings and pre wedding photography in Singapore before and it is definitely one of my favourite cities in the world and I was excited to return there again to tell the story of Zhi and Ivana’s wedding day the Orchard Hotel.

The day began early with Ivana’s bridal preparations taking place at the Orchard Hotel before Zhi and his entourage arrived for the Singapore gatecrash ceremony and fetch the bride. The grooms gatecrash is a traditional and fun start to many weddings in Singapore and involves the groom completing a number of fun, humiliating and rather painful tasks to prove that he is worthy enough of gaining access to the bride. 

It is the bridesmaids task to devise all of the tests that the groom must take and Ivana’s bridesmaids were particularly cruel! Poor Zhi and the groomsmen were required to eat some incredibly spicy concoctions, spoonfuls of the cinnamon and some unmentionable drinks as well as solving complex maths problems. Only when all of these tasks were successfully completed was Zhi granted access to the bridal suite.

The wedding celebrations continued with a traditional tea ceremonies that took place at Zhi’s parents house before the entire bridal party made their way to Marina Barrage for some photographs with the bride and groom as well as the bridal party. Marina Barrage offers some of the most spectacular views over Marina Bay, Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands Hotel and was the perfect location for the bride and groom wedding photographs.

We then headed back to the hotel for the tea ceremonies with the bride's family and this was followed by the most incredible banquet at the Orchard Hotel.

Here are a few photographs from this international wedding in Singapore at the Orchard Hotel. You can also view a Singapore wedding at the Alkaff Mansion here as well as a pre-wedding photography shoot at Marina Bay.

UK Pre Wedding Photography in the Cotswolds

English Countryside Pre Wedding Photography in the Cotswolds

One of the best English countryside pre wedding photography locations must be the beautiful Cotswolds and Zhi and Ivana's engagement photography session was a fantastic couple of days.

The couple had flown over to the UK from Singapore and wanted to take their pre wedding photographs in the Cotswolds which is just a couple of hours from London and I had arranged the pre wedding itinerary so I was able to meet them at Heathrow airport before driving out to the Heythrop Park Hotel in Bibury which was the perfect base for a 2-day engagement shoot.

The Cotswolds is spread out over a number of English counties in the south central countryside that includes  Gloucestershire, Oxfordshire, Somerset, Warwickshire, Wiltshire and Worcestershire. The rolling hills and stunning historic villages makes the area one of the best pre wedding photography and engagement photography locations in England.

As the shoot was spread over a couple of days we were able to include many of the Cotswold highlights including Broadway Tower, Snowshill Village, Bourton on the Water, Snowshill Lavender Farm, Lower Slaughter and Bibury. The stone built houses and streams that run through some of the Cotswold villages creates unique backdrops that really compliment the countryside location.

Here are a few images from this Cotswolds pre wedding photography shoot.

Chris and Stacey's wedding took place at the beautiful Georgian manor hotel of Rudding Park in Harrogate North Yorkshire and was an amazing day from start to finish.

The bridal preparations started in the morning at the Mount Pleasant Hotel in Doncaster before the wedding ceremony at the beautiful St Mary's church in Tickhill in South Yorkshire. The church is a stunning 12th century grade I listed church built in local limestone and was an incredible location for this romantic wedding ceremony.
