Laura + Harry – Santa Maria Di Castellabate Wedding

Santa Maria Di Castellabate Wedding.

Back in the summer I was invited to be part of Laura + Harry’s Castellabate wedding. This whole wedding was *stunning*. I’ve loved photographing destination weddings recently. There’s something so exciting about getting on a place + heading to a location that’s totally different to where I usually shoot. I love working with new types of light, completely different architecture + meeting people from different cultures. I always arrive at least a day in advance (because air travel) which means I usually get to meet + hang out with my couples friends + families before the wedding. Meeting everyone in advance makes it feel like I’m a genuine part of the day, rather than just the “official photographer” which builds trust + means that guests feel more at ease in front of camera. I genuinely consider this group of people as good friends + it’s sort of awesome that ‘job’ allows me to see exciting new places, meet awesome people + create photos that make people happy.

This was the third wedding I’ve photographed for this group of friends. It started back in 2016 when I shot Liam + Maria’s laid back pub wedding, followed by Ria + Jordan’s London Town Hall Hotel wedding in London before this total feast for the eyes.

Amber + Joni | The Gherkin Wedding, London

Gherkin Wedding, London.

When I heard about this Gherkin Wedding, I wasn’t crazy excited because I normally pick gherkins out. Then I stopped lolling at my own Dad jokes + realised it was actually a same sex wedding with bhangra music + indian food in one of the most iconic points in London. I told Amber + Joni to just sign me up + fully commit my entire soul to this thing already…

I was so honoured to be a part of this. Amber + Joni met up with me for an engagement session a few weeks before the wedding + they were the some of the most heart-felt, kind and interesting people I’ve ever met. I love meeting couples before the wedding, breaking down ‘walls’ + getting to know the real people behind the wedding. Weddings like this can be quite hectic because there’s so much awesomeness going on so it’s better to meet beforehand.

The Gherkin blew my mind. It’s obviously quite glass-y so I had all sorts of exciting light to play with + Amber + Joni gave me complete creative freedom to do whatever I fancied doing.

Here are some pixels I made using my eyes + other bits + bobs. But mainly my eyes. Definitely no gherkins.

Jon + Oli | Syon Park, London

A Syon Park Wedding.

Jon + Oli got married at the stunning Syon Park, London. There was a concrete cake, plants growing out of every corner and neon lights. Oh and co-ordinating Alexander McQueen suits. They basically planned my own fictitious wedding. To top it off, it was the first wedding I ever got to shoot with my partner, Alline, who’s inspired me so much this last year. She’s an awesome person + photographer so you should definitely check her out!

Syon Park is a wedding photographers dream. The huge glass dome ceiling feels like you’re shooting the whole thing outdoors. Except ‘outdoors’ kinda felt like being in a sci-fi nerds dream land. That might’ve had something to do with the actual freakin’ tardis on one side of the room and the series of 80’s film figurines as table centre pieces.

“Chris is awesome and his style of photography is awesome. He’s such a nice guy and a fun person to be around so he put everyone at ease. He was the photographer at our friend’s wedding a few years ago so we didn’t hesitate or bother looking for anyone else and just hoped he was available. Luckily he had a couple of dates free so we got in there quick. We will cherish our photos forever.” – Jon + Oli

“The Pearheads”

Wethele Manor Wedding

Wethele Manor is one of my favourite marquee wedding venues in the UK. I’ve been to Wethele Manor a few times now… hit the link if you’d like to see more Wethele Manor weddings

It’s surrounded by miles of countryside + the sun always seems to set perfectly over the fields. One of the things I get asked on the reg is “What makes an awesome wedding?” + Betty + Ed’s wedding defines my answer perfectly. It’s the people. Wethele Manor welcomes over 140 guests for this particular wedding. Every single person felt like they knew Betty + Ed their whole lives + every guest felt involved physically + emotionally with what was happening.

With wall to wall blue skies, they obviously had to have an outdoor wedding ceremony. They had some great readings, with friends playing music + a massive sing-a-long. I never realised how loud 140 people could sing?!?

The speeches were epic. Like…Proper amazing performances. Including an epic self-written rap from one of Betty’s 9 (!!!!) bridesmaids. Extra bonus points to Betty for also writing + delivering her speech. I enthusiastically salute any Bride that delivers her own speech…I can’t believe it’s 2018 + it’s still “unconventional” for the bride to speak but a Groom’s speech is totally “expected”.

I guess I should start by explaining the first photo. Betty’s maiden name is “Pearson” + Ed’s is “Whitehead” + I’ve been really enjoying their abbreviated name: “The Pearheads” so it would’ve been rude to not include a photo of them being a pair of…pears.

Becky + Jonny

Relaxed Curradine Barns Weddings.

For anyone who still doesn’t know… this guy really loves Curradine Barns. I love that you can just take a 5 minute walk around the venue + create such a varied collection of portraits using the local countryside + awesome characteristics of the Barn. The venue itself + the staff are all super relaxed + every guest always seems to be having the best time everytime I photograph a wedding at Curradine Barns.

 

“We have quite a few friends whom are photographers, family members were shocked when we chose not to use them. We of course adore their work, but cherish their friendship even more and wanted them to be a guest, have the day off and enjoy our wedding. I did however ask for recommendations, among a few names Chris Barber popped up. We are a bit socially awkward, stick us in front of a camera and well that just gets a bit worse. Chris manages to capture moments and personalities like no other I’ve seen. He made us feel so relaxed on the day, we’ve got some really beautiful photos to show for it – something I didn’t think we’d ever achieve considering how incredibly awkward we both normally are. I will also add that I’m pretty sure Chris has had some sort of ninja training, looking back at all the photos some of them we have no idea how he took them without us noticing!”

Amy + Chris – The Asylum, Peckham

The Asylum + London Pub Wedding.

Amy + Chris had an Asylum wedding in London. i like weddings that don’t really feel like weddings. like… i turn up + it’s just some girls getting ready. i pretend to understand shoes + dresses + make up + then i pretend not to die from hair spray inhalation. then we all go to this really cool place called the asylum, which sounds like a safe place i belong but it’s actually an awesome venue that has nothing to do with the treatment of mental illness (bonus). amy + chris say a few nice things to each other + then the magic registrar person waves a metaphorical wand + “TA DA!” they’re all married + stuff so we can continue with our lives. “continuing with our lives” is basically another way of saying “we go to get drunk + eat food”. so then we eat food, get drunk + then everyone sings oasis till the early hours.

it’s kinda strange but i love being part of it but not constructing, directing or even encouraging any part of it. i just get to be there with a camera for a face, being a professional ‘blender’.

 

“We love our wedding pics, there really are some great ones in there… And the gallery and USB you’ve provided has helped us relive the day over and over again! Thank you for being so easily available and easy to communicate with. Everyone was amazed at how busy you were and how you were everywhere on the day. Thank you again.”

Amy + Chris

Fay + Chris | London pub + Asylum Wedding.

London Pub + Asylum Wedding.

I absolutely an love Asylum wedding. The wedding venue – not the mental institute – obviously. Fay + Chris have genuinely looked *this* ecstatic about life each time that i’ve met them. i was worried that they might smile-combust during the wedding.

They didn’t smile-combust, though. ain’t nobody ready for two new experiences like that in one day.

 

Chris Barber is a brilliant guy and took the most awesome photos. Chris stayed with us all day and captured some blinding moments; it was so much fun looking through all the photos!”
