Highlights From Some Destination Wedding Photography
I really enjoy being hired as a destination wedding photographer. Capturing moments of pure wonderfrom crashingwaves and starlit skies to iconic buildings steeped in history. And although I’m predominantlya London weddingphotographer, I have been fortunate enough to have shot at some spectacular destination weddings.
I was delighted to be asked to be the destination weddingphotographer for Stefanie and Avnish in gorgeousMalta. Some highlights from this stunningvenue were the outstandingphotos from landmarks includingCastello Zamittello in Mgarr and the ZebbugParish Church. The Church is a work of splendour dating back to 1632, while Castello Zamittello is a majestic castle built in the 17th Century.
This was one incredible destination wedding, and I felt one incrediblyfortunate destination weddingphotographer.
Nigeria maynot seem like the most obviousluxurydestination wedding, but it’s a hidden beautythat makes for a unique wedding experience. Nigeria is renowned as the cultural capital of Africa, and from the food to the exciting venues, it can make for a wonderful choice of wedding destination.
Switzerland brings about images of stunningnatural beautyand charmingold towns makingfor ideal weddingphotography. I was honoured to be the weddingphotographer for Gilyan and Dan who opted to get married in beautiful Zermatt.
While the entire weddingwas special, the backdropandpictureperfect skies enabled some reallysuperb photos to be captured. The ceremonywas held in the charmingGrand Hotel Zermatterhof, but before that we managed somegorgeous snaps atopthe Matterhorn mountains. See some moreSwitzerland destination wedding photography.
Hawaii surelyhas to rank as one of the most excitingand iconic exotic weddingdestinations(certainlyfrom a destination weddingphotographer’s perspective). I wasfortunate to find that out first hand when Staceyand Savas decided to hire me for their dream weddingin this beautiful location. The 12 lovelyguests made this one of the most relaxed, intimate and peaceful weddings I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot.
Thesewedding pictures from Hawaiitell their own storya sensational beach, a beautiful happy couple, and plenty of warm weather and smiling faces.
