Unposed, Real + Fun Wedding Photography

50 Fun Wedding Photos

This is a compilation of fun wedding photos from the last few years. “Fun” is a loose term I give to images that make me laugh along with the people in the photo or laugh at the story behind it. For me (personally) – I get the most creative fulfilment from shooting images that have an ‘energy’ to them. I don’t get particularly excited about photos that are just “pretty” – I like to shoot images that tell a story or really exaggerate an element of a persons personality. I shoot wide angle almost exclusively which forces me to be involved in the day rather than perving on it from the other side of the room.

Here are some photos for you to look at instead of doing whatever you should be doing.

Rachael + Mark | The Oyster Shed Wedding.

Stoke Newington Town Hall + The Oyster Shed Wedding

rachael + mark got married at stoke newington town hall before heading to their oyster shed wedding, in central london. we travelled around on a red london bus, stopping at some london landmarks on the day and then chilled out on the thames with everyone before food was served. then the absolute megastar arrived. his name is barkley + he basically hung around for some group shots…peed up a tree…and left. total legend.

later on, rachael + mark took a stroll down the thames with me for some portraits. the shard looked down over us all day, so we couldn’t avoid a few shots with london’s favourite glass iceberg but some of my favourites are actually some of the more simple portraits. rachael + mark fully trusted what i do + after meeting them in brixton a few weeks earlier for their engagement session – they were totally themselves in front of camera…which is my fave. they were also super patient with my undying love of concrete + walls.

Claire + Tom

Woodland Weddings, Tring

claire + tom chose woodland weddings (tring) as their unique outdoor wedding venue. it’s pretty rare that i get to photograph an outdoor wedding ceremony but super fun when i do. outdoor ceremonies obviously get all the awesome natural light, which usually totally dies the minute you go inside a church or town hall. the whole day was in one part of the wood, so nobody had to worry about moving from venue to venue. a few guests even camped over night!

planning an outdoor wedding in the UK can be kinda risky…presuming you’re not a big fan of rain. so claire + tom did have *some* shelter in the form of an amazing tipi with cascading fairy lights + a freakin’ huge light up “OMG” sign. oh…and there was a swing! need i say anymore?

“Chris captured the whole essence of our day, the fun, the laughter and the love. When we got our photos back, we were both saying “how did he get that photo, I don’t remember him being there!”. He was so discreet, but then when he did interact with our guests, everyone loved him and felt really comfortable with him. After he got all the group shots, he just hung out with our guests and caught some hilarious moments from the speeches right through to the impromptu dance offs and silent disco. This guy has a unique gift for capturing emotion and we are so grateful we found such an incredible photographer.” – Claire and Tom

Anne + Jeff – Wedding Photographer, Nice

Wedding Photographer Nice, France

This was one of my first times as a wedding photographer in Nice + guess what? It was Nice. Sorry.

But seriously it was actually pretty nice. Anne + Jeff planned the day with the help of the super talented girls at Rock My Love, who created a beautiful blush pink French chateux garden wedding to host all of Anne + Jeff’s favourite people from around the world.

I also got to have one of my favourite wedding side kicks (Destination wedding videographer) along for the ride…+ by “ride”…I mean that Leanne is a fantastic driver + she was definitely didn’t almost kill us both with her stunt driving skills.

I love to travel + see new places that are totally new to me. It’s what excites me the absolute most about being a destination wedding photographer. Wedding photographers in Nice are spoilt by this beautiful golden light, lushious rolling countryside + cobbled little back streets, which totally fascinated me once I’d finished eating all of the food. I’d absolutely LOVE an excuse to photograph a wedding here again, so if you’re planning a wedding in the South of France, please do get in touch.

“Browsing through lists of high end wedding photographers in Nice left me nothing but frustrated…I had already seen hundreds of beautiful pictures but not one of them was really personal and true! Up until I decided to look a little further and spotted Chris’ work online. It was “un vrai coup de coeur”.

So even before having found the venue, caterer or a dress, Jeff and I arranged for a skype call with Chris in order to talk details.

We got along just perfectly, things were uncomplicated, fun and I knew, there was no way another photographer was given the job. If I had to describe Chris’ pictures in only a few words, I’d say they capture the moment.

Every time we look at them, we can see that people were having an awesome time that day, they laughed, and cried and danced and celebrated. We wanted to remember every second of this incredibly beautiful day. Even though we couldn’t be in different places at the same time, we didn’t want to miss any second of happiness …or drunken shenanigans for that matter. And Chris did it – he rocked (and still rocks)!”

– Anne + Jeff

Shoreditch Wedding Photographer | Village Underground

Village Underground Wedding, Shoreditch.

This Village Underground Wedding has to be one of favourites of all time.

Weddings can be chaos. They were full of people operating on full capacity, in rooms full to capacity + that can kinda freak me out. So when Jess + Jay said “just do your thing”… I was able to just let me eyes do their thing + let everything just flow.

The Village Underground is one of my all time favourite venues anywhere in the world + it inspires me like crazy every time I get to shoot there. If you’re getting married there anytime soon, please take me with you – my soul needs that place.
