Alternative wedding photography for couples who want something different from the ordinary

Most likely, you’ve landed on this page because you are looking for a London Wedding Photographer. That’s me, Elaine. An Architect-turned-Photographer who loves the city.

Hi, I’m Elaine – an urban designer and architect-turned-photographer offering creative wedding photography. Over the past few years, I have travelled all over the country and photographed some awesome weddings. I guess if you found me this way you searched for London Wedding Photographer – and I am one of those too.

Each time I visit London, I fall in love with it a little more. The architecture, the close-knit streets, the hustle and bustle and noise. As a Glasgow girl, there is something so familiar about London that just makes it feel like home. There is a sense of adventure visiting London, and who doesn’t love an adventure? I think the city is a wedding photographers dream! Jaw-dropping backdrops and graffiti filled side-streets. There are so many opportunities for awesome, creative wedding photography.

I’m sure you’ve heard more than enough about me. You are about to start out on your adventure! Congratulations on your engagement! Keep scrolling to find some of my favourite wedding photographs, and some helpful information about working with me as your London Wedding Photographer.

If you have any questions, no matter how serious, or silly you think they may be, please do get in touch!

My Approach

Allowing your day to happen the way you intended it to takes a very sensitive and unobtrusive approach. I guess you could call the way I work documentary or reportage. I like to hang back and capturing fleeting moments and stolen glances, the ones you probably didn’t realise you made. Your wedding photographs should be more than the dress, the cake and the creative touches you spent months preparing. They should evoke feelings that bring you back to your wedding day for years to come. I photograph your wedding just as it is. An honest documentation of everything from your dress hanging ready for you to slip on, the happy tears through the ceremony, right through to the air guitar on the dance floor when the party gets going.  I’ll be there making sure everything is captured, so no moments are forgotten.

I’ve photographed weddings all over the UK, including Bath, South Wales, Shropshire and would love to be your London Wedding Photographer, if you’ll take me along for the ride.

I have a free, regularly updated wedding planning guide to help you along in the lead up to your day, and gives you a little more information on the way I work.

What makes me tick.

I love laid-back weddings and specialise in weddings for couples who little something a bit different from the ordinary. Slightly quirky, somewhat creative, slightly alternative is my jam. I love weddings in unusual venues, old or new, country or city – I don’t mind so long as the venue has a bucketful of character! I would describe my style as creative or alternative, with a cinematic, fine-art feel. My heart skips a beat for soft window light, and I relish those overcast grey days where the light is magical.

Some of the London Wedding Venues I adore:

Caroline Gardens Chapel aka The Asylum in Peckham, SE15 2SQ
MC Motors Venue, E8 2DS
Union Club, Soho, W1D 4EQ
28 Portland Place, W1B
Bloomsbury House, WC1A 2RL

About you.

You’re laid-back and don’t mind ruffling a few feathers. You do things differently, rather than stick to the ordinary you’ve planned your wedding around things and details that make you scream with excitement, rather than bow down to ‘traditions’ or ‘the way things were planned in the past’. No hand-me-down tiaras here, thank you.

You shudder at the thought of posed photographs. You’d like your wedding photos to be a visual reminder of the emotions you experienced, rather than just how the day looked. Stiff group shots aren’t your priority.

You get excited about the little things. Your heart skips a beat at soft window light and those overcast grey days where the light is magical. You adore scouring fleamarkets, exploring new cities and laughing late into the night with friends over good pizza.

Sound familiar?

I can’t wait to get to know you.
