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 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!

Gypsy bride’s Graphistudio wedding album

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

When a couple first see their wedding photos, they invariably want them all.  After all its the story of their day, and all their special people.  Some may want all the posed pictures, or others the natural ones , but the first time they whittle their initial choice down, there could still be too many to make a beautiful wedding album. This particular bride choice loads of group shots then after receiving the album decided she wanted a second one – just for herself – without all the little copies of a hundred and one groups.  Some pages are the same but here is the full version as she ordered it.

Storybook wedding pictures at Woodlands Hotel in Leeds

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

The  Woodlands wedding venue in Leeds is great for medium-sized family weddings, and has grounds for outdoor wedding photography as well as plenty of space inside, including a conservatory and permanent marquee.  We have photographed a few weddings there over the years.

storybook wedding pictures at Coco Ocean in the Gambia

View of one of the swimming pools at Coco Ocean hotel in the Gambia - pages 2-3 in storybook design, taken the day before the wedding

The bride and groom contacted me when researching their wedding, after coming across photos that I had shot at previous couple’s wedding in the Gambia.  I also will be returning to The Gambia in  early Spring 2014 to photograph a Gambian wedding for another couple.

Their chosen wedding venue – Coco Ocean Hotel  –   is this magnificent luxury hotel in the Gambia in West Africa.  The couple themselves are based in the UK, but have family connections to The Gambia, so it was the perfect choice for them.  I stayed a full week, so was able to capture their cultural wedding ceremony – based on traditions in Sierra Leone – as well as general pics of themselves around the hotel prior to the actual legal ceremony in their private Royal Suite by their private pool, followed by a religious church-style ceremony outside by another huge swimming pool next to the sea.

This combined wedding and honeymoon, is a popular solution for many couples, particularly for those with family connections abroad, as it guarantees lovely weather, and a fabulous location for the wedding pictures.  In this case it also made it easier for their family and friends who live in Sierra Leone to travel  to a nearby country within Africa.  By booking Reel Life Photos for their wedding they also were able to get the quality of storybook album their wedding deserved.  Hope you enjoy looking, as there are many lovely portraits of all their special people, and unusually for my brides and grooms, I was given complete creative freedom, not only to create the design, but also to choose the images I knew they would like.  Most couples spend hours choosing, but they trusted me to choose for them, which was wonderful.

Amazing food and culinary delights at Coco Ocean. Just a shame I had to leave to catch a plane that evening on the last Thomas Cook flight out of the Gambia before the rainy season started, and also to photograph another wedding in the UK the very next day!

Night has fallen so I grab the bride and groom before the dessert course and take pictures of them within the delightful geometric designs of the contemporary architecture.

With the whole day being behind schedule after the Gambian registrar arrived one hour late, the daylight hours vanished so night time pictures of the bride and groom were the only solution.

London wedding storybook album

The cover of Tihitna and Patrick's storybook wedding album at Regents Park in London

Tihitna and Patrick travelled across London to meet us at the place where we were staying, when we were down in London for another African wedding. They are a lovely couple so we soon agreed to video and photograph their wedding which was to be held at St. Aloysius Church in London followed by the reception at Double Tree by Hilton West End.  Our lovely bride and groom then invited us to stay at their place, as we are based in West Yorkshire, so perfect!

It was a bright and sunny day on 22 September, as you will see in the following pictures which the couple have chosen to use in their album.  We usually have more photos of the guests and natural pics, but every couple are different, so happy to design something to suit them .

Paula and Wayne approached me before they had even secured their preferred wedding venue – the Lakeside Restaurant at Ponderosa in Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire.  They were over the moon when they managed to get not only  the church on the date they wanted – the 16 June, but also their chosen wedding venue and  ideal wedding photographer for their lively personalities!  These images below are all wedding pictures they chose to have in their storybook wedding album which will be printed in Italy by Graphistudio.
