So much fun!  Think I shot over a thousand pictures at this wedding , so its been really hard just to select a few.  We were SO lucky with the weather as a sunny winter wedding on first of January is certainly not guaranteed!  If you are having an exciting wedding – anywhere in the world – get in touch with Elaine to see if we can also make your day! It doesn’t have to be a Great Gatsby wedding, but fun and laughter makes for fascinating, mainly natural wedding pictures .

Storybook album design from a church wedding in Leeds, West Yorkshire

Storybook album design from a wedding in Leeds - Oakwood Churh and The Village Hotel South Leeds

Storybook album design from wedding pictures in taken in Leeds – The front cover.

This lovely couple found some of the many wedding pictures I’ve taken on Reel Life Photos  on Facebook Page. They love photos so I was delighted to be their wedding photographer, and to have the opportunity to share their special day.  So much fun an laughter  – from them and all their wedding guests!  They were so keen, they came to see me almost straight after their wedding, as couldn’t wait to see their pictures!   They initially chose 650 favourites, which they would have loved to have had include in their wedding album, but gradually whittled them down to a more manageable 127 images.  I then added a few back in to use as backgrounds to make the story of their day more complete.

The church minister wouldn’t allow me to take photos from the from of the church as I normally do, but with my long lens from the organ loft at the rear, I still managed to get a few basic shots, though not the facial expressions I had hoped to capture.  The church warden put on a feast of tastefully arranged chocolate biscuits on every table in the church hall afterwards, at her own expense too, so can see the couple are much -loved here.

Coco Ocean wedding pictures in the Gambia – storybook

Coco Ocean beach wedding in Gambia

Storybook cover

This romantic couple met in The Gambia and kept in touch for 5 or 6 years before getting married at Coco Ocean Hotel in The Gambia, Christmas 2015.  I was lucky enough to be their wedding photographer, the 5th wedding I have photographed  in the Gambia since 2010.   The image above is the one they chose to be on the cover of their wedding album.  The bride really likes black and white wedding pictures, and this was the groom’s favourite photo from their wedding day at  Ocean hotel and Spa in Kololi.  I love beach weddings and this wedding venue in particular!
