A King's Lynn Wedding | UK Wedding Photographer | Celine Chaplin

I know, I know, I know... it's taken forever to get this pair up, but I can assure you it's been worth the wait!
Ami and Aido, my two dear friends from my uni days got married on Friday 13th August! Friday the 13th??? I know, but despite the date, the day itself was beautiful if a little rainy and the couple had all their lovely friends and family around them. It was such an honour to be invited to photograph their day.

I hope you like them!

Wedding Sneak Peek

I had such lovely memories when I was going through these pics from Ami and Aido's wedding, and I just had to post one...

love it!

Low Light In The Crypt | St.Pauls Cathedral | Celine Chaplin Wedding Photographer

I recently went to St.Pauls for a look around in preparation for the wedding of Annis and Dom, who will be having their ceremony in the OBE Chapel.
I'm so excited about their wedding.

Having been to St.Pauls to watch the Ballet, Organ recitals and the afternoon choir I saw it in a totally different light on this visit - rather than a tourist destination it is a vibrant and busy place of worship. It must be amazing to get married there. Unfortunately for me, my parents don't hold OBEs so I can't get married there but I do get to photograph a beautiful couple so all is good :)

I literally can't wait!

Tart at 40 Winks

I had the pleasure of photographing the very wonderful Tart at 40 WiNKS on the 24th July. 40 WiNKS is the home and hotel owned by a fine gentleman who goes by the name of David Carter.
Upon my arrival he didn't believe my photographer status as he said I looked much too glamourous to be a photographer... He's a real charming gent and made everyone at ease and welcomed us into his home as if we were long lost friends.
Running proceedings and helping his guests settle into the magical atmostphere were the wonderful Naomi of Vintage Secret and Fleur de Guerre who writes the fabulous Diary of a Vintage Girl and who shared her expertise in living a very vintage lifestyle.

Rock and Roll Couple | Celine Chaplin | London Wedding Photographer

I couldn't wait to get these pictures edited for the blog, so much so that I put a sneak peek up last week..
And here they finally are, the very cool Kate and Mike, who's wedding reception in London's Piccadilly was a feast of fun and frolics.

They were way too cool for school, and have just moved out to LA, they both work for a record label and they're even living at the same apartments that Nirvana stayed in when they recorded Nevermind!

We got the chance to escape their Wedding reception/leaving party to go over to Piccadilly Circus and have a bit of fun walking around the bustling streets... They were so natural together and I think they enjoyed the time, especially when tourists kept saying 'Congratulations' to them! How sweet!

I hope you like the pics!

Gorgeous Album Bags From Liberty

I like to think of myself as a bit of a frustrated seamstress kind of gal and love to knock a little something up on my sewing machine now and then.

Julie and Mark | Celine Chaplin | London Wedding Photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing the gorgeous wedding of Julie and Mark recently. It still feels like yesterday that it happened, but alas their big day was over three weeks ago. It's taken me a while to pick some photos because there's just so many lovely images but I've chosen a few to share with you!

Julie was so relaxed during the day and had the most gorgeous dress and she had these amazing shoes with pink soles that she had sent over from the states especially! Mark was a very cool cat in his shades - who could blame him when the sun was shining so brightly! They were so in love- you could just tell from the way they said their vows to each other to when they danced their first dance! I was so honoured to be involved in their day.

So here's some images from their wedding, don't worry Julie... you'll be seeing these first!

Rayleigh Windmill

Here's some pictures from the last bank holiday, 'oh sun, where have you gone?'
It feels as though spring was but a mere memory and it's now reverted back to winter again... I hope the sun and the warmer weather come back soon!

Bank Holiday Break

Having two bank holidays in May is a real treat and when we normally have time to escape the confines of London City we always try to make a run for it!
These pics are from the lovely kitchen of Jessica and Richard who we spent some time with last weekend. They have the most gorgeous cottage that dates back from way back when Rayleigh windmill was operational.
Anyway having been a city dweller for well over two years now I yearn for the space and the time to make a home a real home and I just couldn't resist in taking these pictures of their gorgeous kitchen...
Love that they have a million eggs!

Springtime Fun

I'm so pleased to show you some lovely pictures from a recent shoot with my good friends Ami and Aido and their gorgeous daughter Arwen.
Ami and Aido are getting married this August and I can't wait to be a part of their wedding celebrations having known them since my university days! (many years ago, god i'm getting old!!!)
We took advantage of a sunny sunday afternoon up on Blackheath. It was the day of the London marathon and we were worried it would be packed with runners but luckily we got there after the race had started. And even better that all the trees were blossoming too!
Ami said she's always loved springtime and had loved the idea of a wedding amidst all the blossoms of the trees so I was pleased when we found a patch in Greenwich Park full of trees in blossom.
I photographed Arwen when she was just a little cherubic baby and I can't believe how quickly time flies! She's just over three now and she's a proper little person! As soon as I arrived she was checking through my bag and picking up my brolly! So inquisitive!
Along with running through the daffodils in the park and after the little dogs in the park she helped me take a few pics of mummy and daddy...
I absolutely love that Ami and Arwen had matching blossoms in their hair too... like little fairies of the forest.
I had so much fun taking these photos and am really looking forward to their wedding!

Dr Sketchy at The RVT

I photograph a wonderful night out about once a month for Clare-Marie who runs the Dr Sketchy...
It's life drawing with a difference, hosted by Dusty Limits the king of underground cabaret and it is always a sell out.
Take a look at some of my pictures from the last Dr Sketchy and if you're interested in coming along visit their lovely website here

Hectic Few Days

It's Monday and the end of four manic days of running about like some kind of mental girl and I'm now able to relax, chill and reflect upon my latest shoots and start the long editing process!
I spent most of my time traveling between London to Essex, back to London and then to Surrey, then to Brighton and back to Surrey and then finally back to my home in London with just enough time to catch a glimpse of the marathon runners around Canary Wharf.... Argh!

So after a few cups of tea with my lovely new Teapot from Liberty (pictures coming soon) I will be able to share with you some lovely pics and my latest escapades!

Here's a couple of photos from yesterday with the lovely Adriano and Ami who are getting married in August and they brought along their beautiful and might I add very cheeky 3 year old daughter Arwen. She was so much fun and had us running around after her all afternoon!
