St Mary's Church Wedding Photography

Gillian & Jamie’s wedding was simply amazing, staring from the early morning, when I started to take pictures at Gillian’s house during the bridal preparation, thought the wedding ceremony at the charming St Mary’s Catholic Church in Croydon, to the wedding reception at the luxury Hilton Hotel in Croydon, it have been a fantastic day rich of happiness, excitement and emotions; between the wedding ceremony and the wedding reception we went to take groups pictures and wedding formal pictures at the lovely Coombe Wood, one of the best garden in Croydon and South London, that features a wonderful background for all the weddings photos.

Lan and Jerome Traditional Vietnamese Wedding Photography

Lan and Jerome Traditional Vietnamese Wedding Photography ¦ Destination Wedding Photography

 

As an International Wedding Photographer, Lan and Jerome Vietnamese Wedding was very emotional for me, Lan is my lovely sister in Love and Jerome is a great friend, so taking pictures at their wedding was something special and unique. After taking theirs studio pre wedding photo shoot one week before, I took pictures at theirs wedding.

Vietnamese weddings are very charming an full of traditions, they consist of many different ceremonies running in different days.

As an Asian wedding photographer, few days  before the wedding the groom’s family visit the bride’s family, offering gifts to them and to officially ask permission to receive the bride.  This is a very colourful part of the ceremony as the families wear traditional Vietnamese dresses.

Few days later, on the morning of the day of the wedding, the groom’s family return to the bride’s home, giving them gift boxes covered by red clots , inside them there usually are fruits, cakes, food, fabrics and liquor. When the groom present the gifts to the bride’s family he have granted permission to finally meet the bride.

During the ceremony is always given respect to the ancestor altar, where the bride and the groom burn incense sticks, asking for blessing and permission to the ancestors.

A formal tea ceremony follow where the bride and the groom will serve tea to theirs parents and relatives, after that the groom’s mother will put jewellery piece on the bride for good fortune.

The procession move to the groom’s house then, where the bride and the groom will pray at the ancestors altar and they will meet the groom’s relatives.

After the ceremony at the groom’s house, all the bride’s and groom’s family and friends are invited to a larger reception, usually at an hotel. Lan and Jerome had theirs fantastic wedding reception  at Melia Hotel Hanoi, one of the most exclusive hotel in Vietnam. The dinner meal was simply fantastic, Lan and Jerome had many magic moments on the stage while singing, exchanging the wedding rings and cutting the cake, moments that I will never forget and you can admire in the picture in the photo gallery below.

Nguyet and Thang Surrey Pre Wedding Photography

Surrey Pre Wedding Photography

Surrey Pre Wedding Photography

As wedding photographer in London and Surrey i take many pre-wedding photo shoot in London, Surrey and all around England.

Nguyet and Thang Surrey Pre Wedding Photography session was taken in two different days, the first one in a beautiful location in Surrey and the second one in central London.

As an Asian wedding photographer, for the first day we went to take the pre wedding photography pictures at the St. Margaret’s Church Chipstead, one of the most charming and old church in Surrey, it was built probably around 1185 even if some part of it’s architecture came from and early period, this make thing i have been build of expanded from an existing building, probably a chapel. The main doorway is the original Norman built that shows incredible historical features.

The church was probably damage by fire around the 17th century and partially rebuilt in the 1855 and restored in the following years, since then, the exterior of the church have not been alterated and today we can admire it as one of the most charming church in Surrey.

During the  Surrey Pre Wedding Photography photo shoot at St Margaret’s Church in Chipstead, we were very happy it was a beautiful sunny day even if the photo shoot was taken in October.

I’m often asked if i use flashes during my outdoor photography sessions if it’s sunny, well, yes i do, not only flashes but i often use reflectors as the sun can create very harsh shadows, so, the use of flashes or reflectors help me a lot to balance the lighting and take more pleasant pictures.

I would like to thanks Mai for the fantastic Make-Up and Hairstyle she did on the bride. Continue reading and view the pictures
