Joanna + Andy

Joanna + Andy

I’d been impatiently waiting for this wedding ever since Joanna enquired. The ceremony and reception were held in an urban, graffiti drawn warehouse space in Hackney called Swan Wharf which looked super cool and perfect for a London wedding… and it...
Claudia + Adrian

Claudia + Adrian

Claudia had got in touch and it was only after a few emails that we realised we knew each other from a few years back when we both worked in French Connection as students, oh how the time flies! The ceremony and reception were held at the amazing Trinity Buoy...
5 awesome urban wedding venues in London

5 awesome urban wedding venues in London

One of the great things about being a wedding photographer is being able to visit so many amazing venues. Whether it’s in the country side or the city, a spacious hall or a cosy east end boozer, it never disappoints. Choosing a venue is hard, probably the...
Abi + Ollie

Abi + Ollie

Abi + Ollie had a wonderful country wedding in the Gloucestershire countryside – in Abi’s family home’s grounds no less! Rustic in parts, every detail was well-thought through and beautiful. Shooting it was a pleasure....
Jamie + Pierre

Jamie + Pierre

Early this year, on a slightly grey February day, I had the huge pleasure of shooting the engagement shoot of these two bright things on Hampstead Heath. They’ve since been married in San Francisco – one of my all time favourite places in the world. Perfect....
Daniel + Lewis

Daniel + Lewis

Daniel and Lewis had a beautifully simple wedding day with the ceremony at midday followed by a stroll around the grounds of York House in Richmond. Choosing to keep the guest list low, only two close friends were invited to the day, so I count myself very lucky to...
Hattie + Peter

Hattie + Peter

Upwaltham Barns is becoming one of our firm favourite venues. We had the pleasure of shooting Hattie + Peter’s wedding there in March – with Spring in the air, champagne in the glasses and everyone suited and booted (Hattie in a gorgeous Jesus Piero gown), it...
India + Nick

India + Nick

This English country garden wedding is full of the biggest laughs you’ve ever seen – from ceremony to speeches to the first dance, it was a giggle-fest, start to finish. Held at the Olde Bell in Hurley, Berkshire, India and Nick hosted a wonderful easy-going...
Jo + Mikey

Jo + Mikey

Mikey started his wedding day with dip in Hampstead Heath Men’s Pond with a group of his best mates and family – an activity I had never photographed before! Luckily the sun was shining and everyone seemed game enough to plunge in the cold water. The rest of the...
Cat + Oli

Cat + Oli

After a fun engagement shoot in Paris last January, I was looking forward to seeing Cat and Oli again on their wedding day. Upwaltham Barns is becoming a favourite venue of mine – this was my third wedding there, and as a family-run business they really know how to...
Our year in pictures – 2015

Our year in pictures – 2015

It’s been a year of firsts for Story + Colour – first engagement shoot in Paris, first Indian wedding, first wedding abroad in Cyprus, first trip to… Peckham. This little dream we had about owning our own business three years ago has really come to life and...
Victoria + Adam

Victoria + Adam

It’s really exciting when someone asks for an engagement shoot in a part of London I’ve not had time to explore. When Victoria and Adam suggested their home borough of Peckham, I jumped at the chance, and was not disappointed. Vibrant and eclectic, we...
Jessica + Sandeep

Jessica + Sandeep

After Jessica and Sandeep’s English countryside civil ceremony on the Monday, I was really excited to see them again and shoot their Indian wedding at Merriscourt in the Cotswolds just a few days later – my first ever Indian wedding. I was looking forward to...
Jo + Mikey

Jo + Mikey

A highlight about shooting in the summer, is being able to do engagement shoots after the working day as the sun starts to fall across the city. The warm, hazy days produce beautiful light and warm glowing backdrops for my favourite kind of pictures. Jo + Mikey chose...
Helen + James

Helen + James

The rain is pouring down outside. The guests are arriving and running from their cars into the pub entrance below. I’m watching from a bedroom window with Helen and her bridesmaids. There are a few worried looks but Helen is perfectly calm, she’s getting...
Kali + Thom

Kali + Thom

If an engagement shoot is any measure of the wedding then Kali and Thom’s wedding was going to be fantastic. With a 1920’s theme and set in the Farringdon’s Artisan restaurant and bar it wasn’t going to disappoint. After Kali and Thom had made...
Louise + Matt

Louise + Matt

Louise and Matt got married in Stoke Newington Town Hall, with the celebrations held in the unofficial reception venue, The Londesborough pub, just minutes down the road. It was a lovely intimate day with a super relaxed atmosphere. Louise and Matt were great fun and...
Kali + Thom

Kali + Thom

It was cloudy and on the brink of rain when I met Kali and Thom but that wasn’t going to stop us. After all it is January in England – it’s not like we weren’t expecting it. We made our way through Greenwich Park and up to the Meantime Museum, where...
Cat + Oli

Cat + Oli

For me as a photographer, shooting an engagement shoot in Paris is a big deal and a definite high point in the life of Story and Colour. Unfortunately, my only experience of Paris is from at least 12 years ago, so we took our lead from Cat and Oli who had already...
Katie + Arber

Katie + Arber

Set in the beautiful Gate Street Barn with the sun shining I could tell this would be a great wedding. Hearing the wedding ideas on their engagement shoot a few months back, I was excited to see how things had panned out. I knew Arber was a comic book fan (sorry,...
Emma + Tom

Emma + Tom

2014 has been an epic year at Story + Colour and I couldn’t think of a better way to end it than with Emma and Tom’s beautiful barn wedding at Upwaltham Barn. Going through these photos I can’t help but smile, it was such a happy day, everything was...
Courtenay + Rob

Courtenay + Rob

It was only when walking up to the poppy filled moats of the tower that I realised I have never been here before. Anyone who reads newspapers, watched the news or been anywhere near social media would have seen the sensation that is the poppy display and here it was,...
Clare + Gareth

Clare + Gareth

Clare and Gareth’s was one of those weddings that has been a while in the making – it was one of my first bookings just after I started out and also one that I was most looking forward to. I’d met Clare and Gareth for a quick drink to discuss the day and...
Lydia + Andrew

Lydia + Andrew

After shooting their engagement shoot, it was a understatement to say I was looking forward to Lydia and Andrew’s wedding… and they didn’t disappoint! The day was a vintage inspired trip back in time. The attention to detail was exhausting: from...
Golnaz + Russell

Golnaz + Russell

I’d been looking forward to this wedding since I shot Russell and Golnaz’s engagement shoot at The Grove Hotel a few months back. Firstly, The Grove Hotel is just amazing, the grounds are stunning and it’s the prefect venue for a wedding. Secondly,...
Julie + Patrick

Julie + Patrick

As a photographer you really are spoilt for choice when you’re shooting down on the London’s Southbank, you could spin around blindfolded and still get an interesting photo. The only thing that would make it better is a couple like Julie and Patrick, so in...
Courtenay + Rob

Courtenay + Rob

Courtenay and Rob are soon to be moving abroad so wanted their engagement shoot to be something they could look back on to remind them of their time in London. Thankfully, due to this amazing weather we’re having, their memories will be of a glorious evening...
Emma + Tom

Emma + Tom

Hayling Island has all the hallmarks of an old English beach town, miles of sand, rustic little beach huts, an ice cream parlour and well… the sea! So when Emma and Tom suggested it for their engagement shoot I immediately rushed home and booked my train ticket,...
Jessica + Tom

Jessica + Tom

I do love a London wedding (apart from it meaning I have a short journey to work!), I also get to see the places I’ve lived and worked all my life from a completely different perspective, and getting to experience this with people like Jessica and Tom make it...
Golnaz + Russell

Golnaz + Russell

Golnaz and Russell are getting married at the stunning Grove hotel in outer North London, so what better place to have the engagement shoot than… the Grove Hotel! Apart from the lush surrounding landscapes, it also has a beautiful walled garden, a volleyball...
Rachel + Chris

Rachel + Chris

We’ve known Rachel and Chris for a quite a few years now and it was pleasure to be asked to shoot their intimate Horsham wedding. I am of course a professional and acted accordingly but I was also under strict instructions to enjoy myself and make sure I had at...
Lydia + Andrew

Lydia + Andrew

I knew after meeting Lydia and Andrew that their engagement shoot would be something special. It was decided that we would visit Alexandra Palace (which I’ve never been to before but can now highly recommend for a relaxing day out), where they would go for a...
Marta + Fabrice

Marta + Fabrice

So last Saturday was beautifully sunny… and also incredibly wet – typical English weather! But I like to see it more as a challenge than a problem and walking along London’s Southbank there’s never a shortage of places to take shelter: trees,...
Laura + Chris

Laura + Chris

Camden is home to some of the best urban backdrops in London, which was perfect for my shoot with Laura and Chris. We wandered over the canal, through the market and up into the famous Hawley Arms pub (once frequented by the late Amy Winehouse) for a halftime rest....
Katie + Chi

Katie + Chi

Brighton is one of those beautiful places that was made to be captured on film… or in this case, pixels. It has that nostalgic, English seaside vibe about it, that retro style that just works in a photo. I’m sitting in the Coho Cafe preparing for the shoot...
Chloe + Matt

Chloe + Matt

Back in Summer last year I shot Chloe and Matt’s urban engagement shoot in Shoreditch, we had such a great day and I really loved working with them, so I obviously couldn’t wait for their wedding in early 2014! I had the opportunity to shoot with both Matt...
Jessie + Huw

Jessie + Huw

It’s the 31st December 2013, New Year’s Eve, a night of drinking, dancing and new beginnings and what better way to celebrate than to marry your best friend… and that’s just what Jessie and Huw are doing. The whole wedding, from ceremony to...
Chloe + Matt

Chloe + Matt

Chloe and Matt chose Shoreditch for their engagement shoot, which posed a bit of  problem for me… which locations to use? There’s just too many! We met in the Albion cafe (which has the biggest croissants I’ve ever seen!), where Chloe and Matt...
Amy + Ben

Amy + Ben

I shot Ben and Amy’s engagement shoot earlier this year in Columbia Road Market in London which was great fun, so had been looking forward to the wedding with much anticipation. What I love about these two is how completely natural they are in front of the...
Michael + Andrew

Michael + Andrew

Here’s where we prove you can still have a beautiful, meaningful day celebrating love and friendship, while blowing tradition out of the water. Michael and Andrew decided to opt out of some of the conventional elements you might come across at a wedding, and the...
Amy + Ben

Amy + Ben

Ben and Amy are unbelievably sweet and completely in love – two things that make my job easier! We headed down to a bustling Columbia Road flower market one sunny (and momentarily rainy – it is England after all) Sunday afternoon to take some snaps of this...
Chris + Luna

Chris + Luna

After Chris proposed to Luna in her native Chile, they planned their wedding in true London style. With Marylebone Town Hall and Nolia’s 11 jazz club on the Thames as venues, and a Routemaster bus with stop off in Regent’s Park rose garden thrown in...
Eleonora + Alessandro

Eleonora + Alessandro

Eleonora and Alessandro are the perfect couple – they giggle, they whisper to each other in Italian and they like to snuggle – shooting their engagement shoot has been one of my favourite to date. Such an easy couple to photograph, they had so much fun and...
China + Lesley

China + Lesley

China and Lesley are into the sixties – in a big way. Their highly-coloured and patterned outfits looked stunning amongst south London’s Cannizaro Park’s natural landscape and it made for a fun day out with the...
Tom + Hayley

Tom + Hayley

Tom is my friend’s brother, I’ve known him for a long time and more recently, Hayley too. Working in London they decided to get married in Islington Town Hall and then head down to the Thames for their reception and boat party! The wedding was a joy to...
