Dewsall court wedding

Amie + Jam's Relaxed Dewsall Court Wedding.

Amie + Jam's laid back Dewsall Court wedding began with the guys playing pool whilst the girls were just upstairs getting ready. There were these amazing requests between the two floors, like when I had to go upstairs to ask the girls for nail clippers. "Why?" the girls asked...apparently Jam wanted to do his nails but it turned out they were also used to cut some loose thread from the men's suit crotches.

The ceremony was beautifully decorated with Botanics throughout the glass barn as we went out for portraits. Before long, the real party got started as Deckheds blasted out some killer non-cheese nostalgia which became the soundtrack for beer pong whilst other guests sat around campfires + ate under the stars.

My favourite kinds of weddings are the ones when you can just take pictures whilst minesweeping the tables with my couple...hence I have earned the title of "Minesweeping Legend" haha.

I am also super proud to one of Dewsall Court's officially recommended wedding suppliers. I absolutely loved this place + would love the chance to come back + make awesome photos.

Sophie + James

Ettington Park Wedding

Sophie + James’ Ettington Park wedding ceremony was held outdoors, in the ruins of an old church in one of Britains ‘most haunted’ buildings. I wasn’t even scared. 

Sophie and James’ grandtastical Ettington Park wedding was in Alderminster, Stratford-upon-Avon. They had their ceremony on the grounds of the venue, which was great, because having everything in one venue meant more time for drinks. They chose Ettington Park, because it’s where they always wanted to have their wedding and they just love it there. It was such a relaxed wedding, which meant I had loads of freedom to approach the wedding as a guest. I love shooting weddings at Ettington Park, because the grounds are so varied and the photo ops are endless.

Ettington Park Wedding

Sophie got ready at her parents home called the “Bridle cottage” (how kind of appropriate is that?!) She got ready with her whole bridal squad, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. “Team Bride” kept Sophie calm as they all crammed into her childhood bedroom to help her get ready. Sophie + her dad then jumped into a fancy wedding car to the ceremony.

Outdoor Wedding Ceremony

The wedding itself was an intimate outdoor ceremony in the ruins of an old chapel in the grounds of Ettington Park. It was such a personal ceremony. Sophie + James seemed totally relaxed throughout + so happy to have all their family + friends around them.

The most fun part of the day was heading out for portraits, because Sophie + James love to laugh at each other + it was hilarious to hear their witty little stories. They also had a DIY photobooth during the party – it was so much fun! I didn’t actually know there was a photobooth until I spotted guests with random masks + costumes on the dancefloor (which made for some interesting photos).

Wedding Photographer West Midlands

Sophie + James got in touch with me back in 2016 and their enquiry really intrigued me. They said they wanted a fun photographer, and I really liked that they love cats as much as me. Sophie told me all about her cat which is ACTUALLY called Rio Purdinand, which might be fave cat name of all time.

Sophie and James’s wedding had such a fun atmosphere and everyone was there to have a great time. Here’s their awesome wedding!

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

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.

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.

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
