London wedding photography by ktb – fab, fun photos
Having photographed almost 200 weddings, its really hard to select representative images to show on a website. Every wedding I photograph is unique had has dozens of little stories and special moments. My portfolio is just a few examples of my natural and reportage style with an eye for moments, details, and humour at Asian, English, and Jewish weddings and civil partnerships. Just a few things you might hopefully notice in my work are laughs, brides looking natural, gorgeous and happy, flowers and colour as frames and backdrops and beautiful natural, ambient light.
What makes a better romantic setting than a tree full of cherry blossoms? March in London is an explosion of blossoms and flowers, and along with that first bit of proper sunshine after a long winter, I cannot think of a pretties setting for London wedding photography!
I loved this City cool wedding where the bride and groom and all their guests hopped a train to the riverside restaurant for the reception. Rather than spending loads of time on posed images, Hannah and Mike’s London wedding photography was taken in situ for real, laid back and fun shots of the day.
Bridal preparations are one of the most fun things for to photograph. There’s usually loads of time and a great atmosphere of excitement, drama and anticipation. That’s not to mention the amzing transformation of the bride into her gorgeous dress, hair and make-up. It’s my own personal version of a Hollywood makeover captured in the bride’s London wedding photography.
Confetti is just fun – need I say more???
faq’s on London wedding photography
I love London wedding photography because London is the best backdrop in the world. From green spaces everywhere to great streetscapes, historic buildings to modern architecture, London has it all. What more could you ask for from a city?
My top three choices for a civil ceremony in terms of great London wedding photography are Islington Town Hall, Chelsea Town Hall, Old Marylebone Town Hall / Westminster Register Office. All of these register offices are quite relaxed about allowing photography during the ceremony and have great steps out front for confetti.
You can’t control the weather, and rain is a fact of life in London wedding photography. Embrace it! Umbrellas make great props, give you somewhere natural to put your hands, and the soft light through clouds is very flattering.
My first tip for amazing London wedding photography is to relaxed and trust your photographer to capture natural, flattering images. I’m pretty observant, and I have lots of little tricks which help brides and groom look the best they’ve ever looked in photographs. If you want a preview here, remember to keep your weight on your back foot, don’t stand square to the camera and relax and have fun- you’ll look thinner, more relaxed and happier in 2 seconds.
Firstly, I am super friendly and always approach each wedding with unobtrusive observation to capture your real moments. I get told again and again that not only are the photographs gorgeous and capture the day as the couple had hoped, but that they were surprised that they enjoyed the experience despite not normally liking being photographed. In a nutshell – fab photos which were fun on the day.
