Destination Wedding in PuroBeach Spain

Purobeach Wedding Photography at Laguna Beach Spain

Destination weddings are always incredible and Carl and Mel's destination wedding at Purobeach in Spain was off the charts! 

The ceremony took place on the beach at the stunning Purobeach resort at Laguna Village and the poolside reception was a huge part that went on all night and was topped of with some amazing fireworks overlooking the water.

Carl and Mel had thought of everything and the whole day was a visual and audio feast with live music from the Legal Aliens, DJ Tristan and electric violin and saxophone performances. The highlights of the day had to be the special vocal performance by one of their best friends which was followed by an incredible fireworks display.

The whole day was planned to perfection by wedding planner Louise Roper and here is a little taste of this destination wedding.

Destination Trash The Dress Wedding Photography in Florida

Post Wedding Session in Clearwater Florida

The day after Zach and Leanne's destination beach wedding in Clearwater Florida we hit the beach again for something quite exciting.

Despite the pressure of photographing a New York wedding photographers destination wedding, one of the advantages of the bride being a photographer herself is that Leanne was really keen to get something a little different for her wedding photographs.

We had talked about having a day after session to make the most of the beautiful Florida sunsets and this evolved into a trash the dress session ending with the waves crashing over the couple in their full wedding attire. Although strictly we did not 'trash the dress' it definitely needed a good clean after this session but it was definitely worth it.

We began the session at Zach and Leanne's stunning wedding night hotel with views out over the clearwater beach before heating over to the pier and then into the water for some fun. We had such a great time and Leanne understood completely that the wedding dress is something that you only get to wear once in a lifetime and wanted to make the most of this to get some amazing wedding photography images.

Here are a few photographs from this destination trash the dress session in Florida.

Clearwater Florida Destination Wedding Photography

It is always an honour to be asked to photograph a wedding and even more of an honour to be asked to fly thousands of miles to capture a destination wedding. When the bride who is asking you to capture her destination wedding is actually an amazing New York wedding photographer herself then it is truly flattering.

Zach and Leanne had first contacted me last year and asked me to fly over from London to capture their engagement photography in Venice, Italy and I had such an amazing time working with them there and I felt very privileged to be asked to photograph their wedding day for them in Clearwater Florida.

It was a wedding day that was full of big surprises and Leanne had carefully planned everything to make sure that Zach would be completely blown away. Zach is in the US military based in Italy and had flown over to Florida straight from Venice. Zach thought that it was going to be an intimate elopement with just the two of them and me but little did he know that Leanne had secretly arranged for both of their families to fly from New York to share the day with them.

Zach had not seen his family for 6 months and a surprise knock on the door as he was getting ready for the ceremony was the signal for an emotional reunion. The surprises kept on coming for Zach as Leanne had arranged for his grandmother to attend and present Zach's late grandfathers wedding ring for him just before the ring exchange. Finally Leanne had arranged a beautiful cruise for the wedding reception where they took their first dance as the sun was setting over the beautiful Clearwater horizon.

Here are a few images from this beautiful destination wedding. You can see the amazing 'Trash the Dress' session from the day after this amazing wedding here: Trash the Dress Wedding Session

Hong Kong Wedding Photography at Beas River Country Club

Beas River Country Club Wedding in Hong Kong

After working with Raphael and Emily for their destination pre wedding photography in the Yorkshire Dales, Edinburgh, Peak District and London I was honoured to be asked to fly over to Hong Kong to photograph their amazing wedding day at the Beas River Jockey Club in Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Hong Kong weddings are always incredible and full of colour, energy and lots of fun and this wedding was really off the scale! The day began at the brides parents house where the groom and his entourage must complete some fun (and mildly humiliating) games to gain access to the bride. These are always filled with fun and I love seeing just how far the bridesmaids are going to make the groom and groomsmen go to prove his love for the bride. There was blindfolded cake feeding, iced bath dexterity games and some very questionable fancy dress dancing.

Traditional Chinese tea ceremonies at the brides parents home and grooms parents home was followed by the wedding reception which was quite unique for a Hong Kong wedding. The outdoor reception took place at the Hong Kong Jockey Club at the stunning Beas River Country Club. The location was perfect for a wedding and we were able to take some wedding photographs with ponies which was a great experience.

The highlight of the evening was when Raphael took to the stage to sing Emily one of her favourite songs and there was hardly a dry eye in sight. Here are some images from this Hong Kong wedding.

Pre Wedding Photography in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Pre Wedding Photography

When Kandy and Eric contacted me from Hong Kong about working with them for their wedding photography in Iceland it was perfect timing. I was just packing to fly out to photograph a wedding over in Hong Kong and we were able to squeeze in a mini pre wedding session in Hong Kong whilst I was over there.

I was lucky enough to be there at the time of the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong and the incredible umbrella revolution which was being staged mainly in the Mong Kok and Central Hong Kong areas.

For the shoot itself, I know Hong Kong pretty well and suggested the Tsim Sha Tsui Museum of Art area which has some amazing architecture and so many great spots and we finished up by taking the ferry over to Central for a few more pre wedding photographs.

Here are a few images from this Hong Kong engagement session and a few from the very peaceful pro-democracy protests.
