Emily & Stef – Married!

Emily & Stef are some of our best friends.

Some of you reading this will know Emily already as she’s a well known wedding photographer herself, even appearing on Channel 5 recently.

Many of you might know Stef too. He’s a self-confessed ideas man. His motto is “create something every day”, usually something that combines technology and design.

They have three gorgeous kids together. You may remember this little shoot we did when they had just two children.

They were married in a simple register office ceremony on a rainy Thursday morning in June and I was honoured to be asked to photograph the wedding for them. Later that day, after a great lunch in St Albans, we met up again in London for some portraits on the South Bank along with fellow photographers (and lovely people), Owen & Charis. The day was rounded off nicely with dinner and drinks at our new favourite London hotel, Shoreditch House.

Two days later Emily & Stef  had their second (and main) wedding celebration in Sussex. This was a humanist wedding ceremony, my favourite kind but sadly not legal in England. Yet. The day was photographed by one of my favourite photographers, Polly Alexandre, meaning Evelyne & I could attend as guests. We never even took our cameras! Their wedding was perfect. Good times were had by all and we’re so happy we got to be a part of such a fantastic celebration.

Here are a few of my fave images from the first day. Make sure you check out the video at the end!! 🙂

Ok… so you may have seen a video we made of our trip to Devon on THIS POST recently.

Actually, I can’t take any credit for the video. It was all Evelyne‘s handywork. She doesn’t pretend to be a fully fledged videographer at all, but enjoys making videos with our Canon 5DMkII cameras and then editing them in iMovie before sharing them with friends and family. Emily & Stef obviously think she’s pretty good as they asked if she’d be up for making a little video clip from their wedding. Evelyne said she would… and then worried that it wouldn’t be good enough!

Check out Evelyne’s finished video clip here. I reckon she did an amazing job 🙂

Massive congrats to Emily & Stef. Their wedding was unique, fun, beautiful, romantic, kinda windy at times, and we enjoyed every minute of it!

  15. Hey
    Your pictures are beautiful! I am a contortionist looking for a photographer to take some original photos of me doing contortion. I’m not sure exactly where yet, need an unusual idea.
