Malta Wedding Photography – Jonny and Emma Part One

November 26, 2014

I meet hundreds of couples at wedding fairs every year, and you can’t help but get more excited or inspired by some wedding plans than others. So when Jonny and Emma told me they were just looking for a photographer for a few hours to capture their evening reception in Leeds, following an elopement to Malta a few weeks earlier, I only really had one question; “Who’s shooting your wedding in Malta?”

I can pretend to play it cool as some sort of international rock star photographer but the fact is I was really excited to get the call a few weeks later to discuss the feasibility of joining Jonny and Emma for my first destination wedding. I had bookings on the Friday and Saturday but there was a flight leaving Liverpool on the Sunday afternoon. This would give us Monday to meet up and discuss final preparations before the wedding on Tuesday. The next flight home was at 4am on Wednesday morning, which was a good job as it was Rache’s birthday on the Thursday!

The Monday evening also gave us the opportunity to shoot some pre-wedding portraits, as the sun set on the western coast of the island. Here are my favourites from the shoot:

While exploring the area around the hotel on the Monday before the shoot I spotted a photo printing shop and so was able to create a framed print, as a little wedding gift, which I left at the hotel before my early departure. Jonny and Emma dabble in a little ballroom dancing and so it made perfect sense to choose this particular image of them practising as the sun set.

Matlock Wedding Photography – Emma and Jamie

November 12, 2014

Some people like to put a lot of planning in to their wedding, then there’s Emma! She thought about so many details and pulled together such a great team of suppliers (many of them friends) to help her and Jamie create an entire weekend of wedding celebrations.

I remember Emma saying “I’m thinking about festoon lighting outside” and I was immediately buzzing about using them in the evening portraits. Without doubt it’s my favourite shot of the day and one of my favourites of the year. Here it is along with some other favourites from their day.
