Gay & Lesbian Wedding Photographer London - Alternative Wedding Photography

It has been two years since I photographed my first same sex wedding. It was a London lesbian wedding. I was very excited when I got an enquiry from this lovely alternative couple – it was my first tattooed bride too. I am still grateful to them for picking me even though I had never photographed a gay wedding before. 


To be honest I did not know what to expect – just like any other alternative wedding! So I just prepared the way I always do. It was going to be an Islington Town Hall wedding – I like shooting weddings there, it is a beautiful wedding venue in North London and it is quite close to where I live. It was the first time I would shoot a wedding in the Richmond Room though. The wedding reception was going to take place at The Drapers Arms in Islington, a photogenic wedding venue in North London with a vintage atmosphere, very close to Islington Town Hall. I went scouting these wedding venues and found a few interesting spots for some urban wedding portraits. 


I have shot three more same sex weddings in London since then and my approach is exactly the same as any other alternative wedding. I try to tell the story of the day by documenting whatever happens as creatively as I can and in an unobtrusive manner. When it comes to portraits, there is no difference for me between gay couples and straight couples. I let things unfold naturally and I encourage people to be themselves. What I am interested in when I shoot wedding portraits is the relationship and the interaction between two people more than just a static recollection of the day. 


Here is a selection of my favourite photos of the day. Enjoy! x
