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.

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

So + Fabian – A London Pub Wedding

Islington Town Hall + London Pub Wedding.

So + Fabian’s relaxed London pub wedding started at home where So was met by her family + friends before heading to their ceremony at Islington Town Hall. After a short but sweet ceremony, all the guests made the short walk over to The Draper’s Arms to hang out + eat some amazing pub grub. There were a few awesome speeches + the sun blazed through the large open windows of the pub throughout which meant I had some really nice light to play with. Happy photographer! Most weddings I photograph have two venues (a ceremony venue + wedding reception) but not So + Fab! They’re SO FAB (not even sorry)! We all jumped in London cabs + headed to another cool London pub – The Blacksmith + Toffee Maker in Finsbury. The Blacksmith + The Toffee Maker is a trendy London pub with an emphasis on typically gourmet London food. Everyone sat outside + bathed in the warm September sunshine, talking the night away.

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.

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

Charlotte + Dan | Curradine Barns Wedding

Curradine Barns Wedding.

Charlotte and Dan’s Curradine Barns wedding setting was a modern barn in Shrawley, West Midlands. It was such a fun day and even the weather played ball!

Charlotte got ready at Curradine Barns with her bridal squad, and the atmosphere was so calm. The ceremony was an intimate affair in the barn. The awesome beams of the barn framed the ceremony perfectly + Dan even managed to hold it together without crying. The reception was in the barn at the venue. They chose Curradine Barns because it has so many options and they just love it there. It was a fun wedding, which incorporated all sorts of quirky DIY elements. I love shooting Curradine Barns weddings because the surroundings are absolutely amazing. There’s such a variety of spots for photos within a 2 minute radius of the barn so I can get a really nice range of portraits.

They had a drinks reception in the afternoon, and a photobooth in the evening. Not just any live music but music by the one + only.Elton (kind of) John! They decorated the venue with so many quirky DIY features and tealights, because it’s so cosy.

The funniest part of the day was when the one + only Elton (kind of) John stepped up to play the night away, because he looked exactly like Elton + played a bunch of Elton bangers throughout the night. They also had a Doughnut tower cake, a popcorn machine + oven baked pizza during the party – it was so much fun!

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.
