My favourite New Yorker in London

A few weeks ago was London fashion week and Christina from Troprouge took the opportunity to visit the UK for the first time. We hung out one afternoon around Shoreditch and I couldn’t resist taking some pictures!

Stunning Spanish hotel wedding

Last month we headed to Pamplona for a few nights to photograph our first wedding in Spain. Biarritz couple, Renaud & Sandra, along with their friends and family had taken over the oh so elegant Muga de Beloso hotel for 3 days of exquisite food & wine, romance and lots of fun! Below is a sneak peek at the images we captured along the way.

Wedding – La Garde-Freinet

One of the highlights of this year so far was the weekend we spent in La Garde-Freinet, 15km north of Saint-Tropez on the Côte D’Azur, shooting a stunning wedding organised by Paris based planners Les Tetes Chercheuses. A romantic church service at the local chapel was followed by celebrations long long into the night back at the bride’s family estate. A delicious brunch was served the following morning on the terrace, where there was plenty of rosé wine from the domain to sooth aching heads and everyone dressed fittingly in white under the bright sunshine. For now, we just have some shots of the details and décor to share with you. Stay tuned for more.

Engagement Shoot – Provence

Back in June we spent two weeks in the stunning Lubéron valley shooting some gorgeous weddings and generally enjoying a taste of the Provençal lifestyle. During this time we had the privilege of photographing LiPing & John who had come all the way from Singapore in search of the perfect backdrop for their engagement photos. Below is just a sample of some of the stunning locations we found for their shoot. Of course with it being the ideal time of year, we couldn’t resist a quick foray into the lavender fields at sunset!

You can see a larger selection of photographs from this shoot on Style Me Pretty today.

Wedding – Burgh Island Hotel

A few weeks ago we were privileged enough to shoot the intimate wedding of Hayley & John at Burgh Island Hotel, Devon. This exclusive 1930′s art deco hotel famed as the setting for Agatha Christie’s ‘And Then There Were None’ was an interesting and unusual venue for us to shoot at. The retro but still oh so chic surroundings made for a refreshing change. A short but sweet ceremony & signing of the register in the Captain’s room was followed by Champagne afternoon tea, delicious cocktails in the bar and dinner. Here are a few shots to give you a taster.

A weekend in Suffolk

Last weekend we spent a few nights in an ancient thatched cottage in the Suffolk countryside. We couldn’t have been more lucky with the weather, which actually allowed us to enjoy a picnic on the pebble beach in the classic English coastal town of Aldeburgh. The fresh pots of crab, prawns and cockles bought directly from the fisherman’s hut were delicious. Sunny visits to Rendlesham Forest & Flatford Mill where Constable was inspired to create the famous painting, The Hay Wain were also highlights.

Published in New Zealand Weddings Magazine

This month, thanks to one of our clients, we have our photography featured in New Zealand Weddings Magazine. Renowned wine maker Tamra and her husband Simon, who also works in the wine industry, were married in Italy this summer. They chose the hill-top village of Barbaresco set in the heart of the famous wine producing region, Piemonte after getting engaged there a year previously. It was a beautiful day filled with all the romance you’d expect from a small destination wedding in this part of the world… and the wine wasn’t bad either! Tamra & Simon had produced their own special white wine for the occassion, a 2012 Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc that went down a treat in the heat of the afternoon. Special vintages that had sentimental significance to them were also chosen to match each of the 6 courses of Italian fare. Below is a glimpse of the article produced by the magazine as well as a few shots from their big day.

Children Photography

Kids are always an integral part of any wedding day, so we endeavour to take great shots of all the little ones at each and every wedding we photograph.

However, we are now offering photo shoots specifically for children outside of the wedding day. Not keen on the idea of the polished, over-styled or formal photographs of kids that might normally be taken at a family photo studio, we much prefer the idea of photographing your children comfortably enjoying themselves in their natural environment. That might be at home, in the garden, down at the beach or out at the local park with you and the rest of the family.

If you are interested in us capturing some beautiful, pure & timeless photographs of your children please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We are London based for the majority of the year where we are familiar with plenty of great spots in the North, South, East & West, but are always willing to travel further afield if necessary. Photo sessions can be arranged for any time of year and start from as little as £200!

Below is a small sample of the kind of images Morgane has been capturing.
