Pre-wedding Shoot at Pembroke Lodge

We headed back to Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park for Andrea and Mike’s pre-wedding shoot. The weather was overcast and the light flat, but we otherwise enjoyed a really good shoot with the couple.

Later in August, Andrea and Mike’s wedding is at Hampton Court House – which will be another first for us – and we are very much looking forward to photographing their day.

London Photo Shoot – Yoke and Edmund

On Sunday we were commissioned for a London photo shoot. Yoke and Edmund are from Singapore, but in London for a short holiday to celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary. Luckily, after a long run of heavy rain, the weekend was blessed with diffused sunshine.

We started in the early evening at Hyde Park. This is naturally a popular park, but it is worth persevering with the crowds because the area does offer beautiful versatility – especially in early Spring. The advantage of starting with Hyde park is that we were able to shoot some more natural shots to contrast with some of the later shooting, which needs to be more stylised. The 3rd shot in the gallery – using off-camera flash for a more fashion-like feel – was one of my favourites photographs of the London shoot.

We then moved on to Trafalgar Square (where it is impossible to avoid people in the background of the photographs!) and then Harrods. Yoke then changed into her second outfit – a stunning white dress.

The next destination for the photography was St Pauls Cathedral – where the light was beginning to get more dusky, and then Leadenhall Market (Sunday is a good day to catch the market empty; and we like the high ceiling, arches and tungsten lighting). Finally, after a another outfit change (a lovely gold dress), we finished at Albert Embankment to photograph the Houses of Parliament in the background.

We are often commissioned by couples from Singapore to do London photography shoots. Some couples are in London celebrating anniversaries, but many are looking to enjoy an extension to their wedding photography (either as a pre-shoot or during the honeymoon).  You can view details about Gary’s photography awards here.
