East London Wedding Photographer - Shoreditch Alternative Wedding Photography

The couples who hire me as their wedding photographer usually do so for two reasons. The first one is that they want something unconventional and a bit different and the second one is for my unobtrusive approach and the natural looking pictures which result from it.  As an alternative documentary wedding photographer I capture the day as it unfolds and I try my best to be as unobtrusive as possible. I do not use a flash as it would interfere with my inconspicuous approach but also with the aesthetic that I like. However this choice can prove quite challenging at times – especially when it comes to capturing dancing!


When I was booked to photograph the following alternative wedding in East London, I was warned that the after dinner party would take place in a low-lit cellar cocktail bar near Shoreditch. I was up for the challenge and I was not disappointed! The Worship Street Whistling Shop is the darkest place I have ever shot a wedding at! Its candle-lit Victorian atmosphere and the jazz band hired for the occasion were perfect for this intimate unconventional wedding. Pushing my camera to its limits allowed me to capture the mood of the place. I am aware that this moody high-contrast photography style is not to everyone’s taste however to me retaining the general atmosphere of a place is as important as the subject of the picture. Similarly shadow is as important as light in my style of alternative wedding photography.

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