Charlotte + Ryan – London Wedding Photographer

Thames Chase Barn, London Wedding Photographer.

hello. these are some pictures that i made at charlotte and ryan’s london wedding at thames chase barn. you can use your eyes to look at them or you can just close your eyes and imagine the best wedding party ever for the next minute or so. whatever you prefer.

once the ceremony stuff was over, we then headed to thames chase barn and we went STRAIGHT into the party. there was casual grub available but everyone came to party and it was so fun to be part of a wedding that just skips to the most fun part of the day/night…at like…3pm. i love relaxed weddings and documenting candid portraits of guests just being themselves and having fun. these guys gave me the creative freedom to do just that. huge thanks to charlotte and ryan for that and for making me feel like a mate with a camera, rather than the “official photographer”

“Our photographer, legend and all round great guy, was Chris Barber. We got talking through Instagram and Ryan and I both fell in love with his style, how fun and not awkward his couples looked. This was something we both felt strongly about, we didn’t want typical “stand and smile” type wedding photos of yesteryear to remember the day by, we really wanted to see the fun and happiness of our guests and ourselves and Chris captured that so perfectly.” – charlotte

Hannah + Picky | Pub Wedding, Alderminster

Relaxed, Pub Wedding.

I photographed Hannah’s sisters wedding a few years back at the amazing Cripps Stone Barn so I already recognised loads of faces + knew it was gonna such a fun pub wedding in countryside. I love catching up with families I’ve met before at weddings – it’s like bumping into a bunch of old friends + getting to party with them all over again. This time it was Hannah + Picky’s turn. These guys made me feel like such an important part of the day + gave me total free creative reign to do whatever I like (literally the best thing you can say to any wedding photographer). They wanted laid back, fun wedding photography so I was able to get involved like any of the guests + photograph everyone just enjoying themselves + having a great time. Anyway…check this out… I literally got invited to go to the pub for a wedding. I took some photos + I didn’t even have to pay them to say this…

 

“Where do you even start with Chris Barber!? Argue with myself to decide what’s better… him or his photos! Chris you are simply amazing! We could not have asked for a nicer, more talented person to capture our wedding day, and my goodness did you capture everything about our day perfectly. We cannot get enough of our wedding photos, and pre wedding shoot pics. Everything has been beyond our wildest dreams. Can we get married again just so we can hang out with you again!? Thanks so much Chris!

Lots of love, The Picks”

Ria + Jordan | Town Hall Hotel, London Wedding

Town Hall Hotel Wedding.

this is ria + jordan. they got married at one of my favourite venues in london – the town hall hotel. it’s such a quirky venue with loads of cool wood panels upstairs + around the old court room. the reception areas are full of unique details + alternative decor, so plenty of stuff to keep my eyes busy.

jordan is really good at being funny + ria is a wedding photographer. i mean… ria’s funny as well but it’s important to note that she’s a wedding photographer because i am also a wedding photographer so that’s…like… a thing because it should feel like a lot of pressure but it doesn’t because i know how to use the word because a lot + because i hate starting new sentences.

here’s some photos, just because.

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.

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

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

Asylum + London Pub Wedding.

I love a good Asylum wedding. The venue – not the mental institution…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!”

Fay + Chris
