I felt really lucky to get to photograph my good friends Abbie & Ben’s intimate ceremony day in London followed by a big party in Devon with lots of dancing. It’s wonderful to be able to help your friends document their wedding for them. Abbie & Ben are one of the coolest couple I know with bags of taste and are two of my favourite humans so I knew their wedding would be full of amazing details and nice touches and both days really didn’t disappoint.

I decided to shoot a lot of film, I shot 35mm on a Canon SLR and polaroids on a Polaroid 195 land camera as well as digital and also filmed a roll of 8mm to capture the dancing to a gypsy folk band at the Devon party.


London Ceremony
There was a bit of a Wes Anderson vibe to the London Ceremony, starting with the amazing Karma Kab ~ vintage Indian Ambassador car based on the Morris Oxford from the 1950’s that Ben had organised as a surprise to take Abbie, her bridesmaids and mum from their home to Hackney Town Hall for the ceremony. After a lovely little ceremony, confetti exit and a big group photo on the stairs the entire party walked through London Fields for more photos and then onto Cat & Mutton pub at Broadway Market for lunch. Cat & Mutton was full of interesting art that made a great backdrop for some portraits of the newlyweds.

Devon Party
A quick trip down the M5, past StoneHenge (the first time I’d seen it, smaller than you imagine but still cool) and on to Pt 2 of this awesome wedding! This was in many ways the main event with lots of friends and family all brought together to help celebrate with these two lovelies.

Lots of lovely details, including table plan’s marked by Abbie’s wooden laser cut animals from her job as an amazing artist. Brightly coloured balloons as far as the eye can see, a fancy dress box busting at the seams (I ended up in big shades and a pink sequined scarf busting moves to Run DMC), chocolate birds nest made by Abbie’s friend Great British Bake Off winner Frances Quinn and a gypsy folk band to get the party started, what a wedding!

~ 8mm Film of dancing
I filmed some of the gypsy dances on 8mm, different from my normal wedding films I make, this was just to capture this one part of the day (with a bit of smoke grenade action added at the end for good measure 🙂 As 8mm is silent I captured some of the ambient sound of the band and the chatter of the guests on my phone.
