Jo & Jeremy | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

London Wedding Photographer
I travelled out to Kent for Jo & Jeremy's beautiful wedding in June. Jo is just like her ma, so sparkly and vivacious and it was lovely to see them together before we headed to the church.

Lindsey & Tim | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

~
Lindsey & Tim live and were married in June in Covent Garden, London. I loved their sense of style and clearly how important their families were to them both on their wedding day.

Michelle & Luca | Chloe Browne: Wedding photographer in Tuscany

~
Michelle & Luca live in the US, where they met and fell utterly in love. Michelle is Malaysian-Italian and Luca, un bel Pratese-Italian. They make such a sweet couple and it is so lovely to see how he makes her sparkle-so pretty and happy. 
With the Italian-connection, they chose to have a beautiful wedding reception at La Limonaia, in Prato, Italy. I literally gasped in amazement as I walked through the gates into the villa-I couldn't stop beaming at just how simply beautiful everything was.

British Journal of Photography ~ July Issue

~
This time last week, I had just come home from a day spent at Unveiled, an event held by the British Journal of Photography in association with Wedding magazine and Hasselblad. The event was aimed at wedding photographers in the UK; those established and aspiring.

I was thrilled to be asked by the BJP to speak about my experience in the wedding photography industry and to stand up alongside Kat of the infamous RocknRoll bride, to talk about how I began Caught the Light.

Carey & James | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

~
Carey and James are a lovely, down-to-earth couple who got married in the first week in June. They held their reception at the very stylish Anchor Inn in the very quaint Hampshire, out in the English countryside. I have never been to such a fantastic pub in all of my life and I'm not proud to admit that I've visited a fair few. We had such beautiful weather that everyone was in the highest of spirits, which really made for quite the perfect day.

Philippa & James ~ engaged | Chloe Browne : London Wedding Photographer

p~

I met Philippa and James a few months ago, to talk about their wedding in July. Philippa is one of the most stylish people I have ever met; she's so poised and cool, she's the kind of girl you imagine characters in films being based on. For their engagement session, they took me to the beautiful hidden gem that is Petersham Nurseries in Richmond and waited patiently for me to calm down and refocus on them-there were so many pretty things to look at!

Lois & Steve | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

~
I could not believe how beautiful a venue Little Hermitage was, when I turned up on on a dazzling April morning, to photograph Lois & Steve's wedding. An old Georgian house is a very lovely place to get married, with a great big green garden and a beautiful room to get ready in. With a glass or two of champagne, of course.

Hannah & Tom ~ engaged | Chloe Browne: London Wedding photographer

~
Hannah & Tom are a very lovely couple who I met for a chat about their wedding at the beginning of the year. Hannah loves and is also studying theatre, so we decided to go for a bit of a walk around London's theatre district, after a little balancing act in St James' park.

Cape Town, South Africa | Chloe Browne : London Wedding Photographer

~
A couple of months ago, we went to Cape Town, for Richard & Sanchia's wedding and decided to make a really good holiday of it.

On our first day, we rushed down to a beach bar to have cocktails in the setting sun with the very lovely Emma Norén and her handsome Ricky

Emma & Ricky Cape Town
This is my first photo taken with her beautiful Rolleiflex-there's something sweet about taking a photographer's photo. Emma photographed our wedding last year and for that, I adore her.

A Quick Look~Lois & Steve: Chloe Browne | London Wedding Photographer

Here is a very quick sneak peek of Lois & Steve, from their April wedding at Little Hermitage, in Kent. It was a beautifully hot day (remember those, England?) and the venue, Georgian and amazing.

Kristina & Baljit | Chloe Browne : Wedding Photographer in Denmark

~
When I arrived on the tiny island of Samsø in Denmark for Kristina & Baljit's wedding, I knew it was going to be something different. They chose a very intimate venue with family and just a handful of friends each. I have never seen two different cultures, talk and laugh as if they've known each other forever. I've posted more on the people for this wedding; as that's really what it was all about.

Kristina & Baljit wanted to have some photos taken before their ceremony began, so we drove around for a while, stopping off wherever we liked. It was so good to be unhurried and I think we got some lovely portraits along the way. I honestly could photograph you two as long as I live. You are so beautiful.

Sharon & Rich ~ Engaged | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

-
A few weeks ago, I met up with the very lovely Sharon & Rich for their engagement session in Clapham. It's always nice to be able to photograph clients in an area that means something to them, so it was good to have a wander around the town they call home. 

Sharon&Rich-2

Sharon has the most beautiful vintage engagement ring; it's huge and perfectly unique. Rarely do I get ring envy, but I was absolutely green with this one.

A Quick Look~Kristina & Baljit: Chloe Browne | London Wedding Photographer


Here is just a very sneak peek at Baljit & Kristina's Danish Island wedding earlier this month. I don't usually like to share photos before couples have had chance to see them first, but with the sun blazing today in London, I really couldn't resist (forgive me Kristina!)

Jazelyn & Darren ~ Engaged | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer



Jazelyn & Darren make a very cute couple. He's English and she's American and they live in a very cool part of London-Westbourne Grove. When Jazelyn sent me a message about having an engagement session, I was very excited as I knew they'd want to head to the infamous Portobello Road. They were such great fun to photograph and I'm dying to find out where they choose to have their wedding. They're trying to decide between Europe & the USA... Barcelona gets my vote, Darren.

Albums & Discs: Chloe Browne | London Wedding Photographer

~
I try to be a wedding photographer that I myself would hire. So, when I put together packages I take into consideration what creative brides may like and what they might like to organise themselves. I provide high-resolution images on disc to all of my couples, so they're able to print and share their photos as they wish, with the option to buy custom-designed albums if they would like them too. The majority of my clients prefer to organise their own albums, being artists, designers or just those who love a good rummage through Paperchase.

After much hunting and sampling, I finally came across a book company that I really liked. They allow me complete flexibility in album layout and design and provide a simple, matte, digitally-printed album on fine art paper, with a really beautiful texture.

Sanchia & Richard ~ Cape Town | Chloe Browne: Wedding Photographer in Cape Town


I met Sanchia three years ago, working as a hairdresser in Camden. She was the first hairdresser to tell me that my thick and unruly hair was actually beautiful and instantly, we were friends. Together, Sanchia & Richard are a truly fantastic couple; large-hearted, vivacious and very, very stylish, so I was priviledged to photograph their intimate garden ceremony in Cape Town, South Africa whilst there on holiday last month.

Here are all of my favourites, get ready for a gargantuan post:

Lia & Gerald | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

I
I photographed Lia & Gerald's wedding exactly one month ago at the chic Haymarket Hotel in London, so it's about time really that I shared their full post.

Lia was so elegant in her sophisticated dress and vintage jewelery and was such a pleasure to photograph with those beautiful smiling eyes. Gerald's dapper suit perfectly matched his debonair swagger-he looked to me as if he had just wandered out of the Rat Pack.

I loved each and every one of the twelve hours I spent at this wedding-thank you for choosing me to share it with you. Here are a few of my favourites.

Leaving on a Jet Plane... Chloe Browne | London Wedding Photographer


I've had two brides this week ask about Super8 film and talk about lomography, so I thought it fitting to post some of my holiday Holga film. She's a tempremental beast of a plastic camera who loves to leak in light, but I love her. She was in fact, my wedding day gift, so here are a few from my honeymoon roll: Paris & Cuba.

Lia & Gerald ~ A Sneak Peek: Chloe Browne | London Wedding Photographer


Just a quick sneak peek of Lia & Gerald's wedding on Saturday at the ever-so-London Haymarket Hotel. I had to steal them outside and away from the crowd for a couple of minutes, before they got hauled back inside for the party.

Coffee at the Salusbury | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

When I lived in Queens Park, the Salusbury Deli was my favourite café. It had local photography on the walls, secret benches out the back and amazing melanzane alla parmigiana.

It had changed a bit since I last had breakfast there-sat with my husband the day before we left for our wedding last year. There are now cool lights, tables sprawled with newspapers and walls full of eclectic frames.

Meet Tallulah | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer


Usually, I'd gush about how much I loved photographing this little one, but I don't want to bore you. She's a real cute head and these are a few of my favourite photos of my friends' beautiful little girl, Miss Tallulah.

Bath and Abroad | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer

Since my last wedding of 2009, I've had a little time on my hands to do things that get reserved for the quieter time of the year. I've visited family and photographed babies, sat in cafés all afternoon catching up with books and good friends and even managed to spend a night out of London.

I had never been all that bothered with a trip to Bath. It seemed to me that the Roman baths would be a little bit underwhelming, considering I spent eighteen months riding past the Colosseo twice a week in la cittá eterna, eating cacio e pepe and trying my hardest to learn Romanesco. But, when my husband suggested escaping London for a night at the end of last year, Bath seemed as good a place as any considering all the travel I would be doing this year.

Bath

Not only are the Roman baths absolutely amazing for their history and the story behind their rediscovery, but they actually still work to some extent, channeling hot water up from the earth to steam up your glasses if you lean too close.

We also came across this little gem tucked away from the high street. I can't claim to be a vintage vixen, but I sometimes think I was definitely born in the wrong era. 

Bath

Look at the shine on these! 

Bath

The next few weeks are relatively quiet ones for me; catching up on admin and meeting more summer brides, before I gear up for my first wedding of the year in March. There's time for a few days in South Africa before I'll be back to work in Denmark and then Italy the following month with a few English weddings to photograph in between. Then it's onwards to Switzerland for what I am sure is going to be a wedding full of amazing ambience, details and internationality in July.

I am so fortunate to have met so many destination couples this year; it's such an exciting one for travel. I really can't wait.

Katherine & Paul ~ engaged | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer



I met Katherine & Paul at the Pavillion Cafe in Victoria Park, East London, on a bright and (still) frosty Sunday morning.

We sat down and spoke about how they met and what things they have planned for their April wedding.

Then when we were frozen, we headed for brunch over to one of my favourite streets, Columbia Road, for hot chocolate and some window shopping.

Katherine & Paul are such a lovely couple and I'm so glad to have had a few quick minutes outside with them on such a beautiful and fresh day. They're getting married in Cambridgeshire but unfortunately, I'm not covering their wedding as I'll be in Denmark photographing a tiny island wedding instead. It's a bitter-sweet life.

You remind me a little of Michelle Pfeiffer, Katherine-Paul's a very lucky man.

A little bit of blogland | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer


I had both the lovely Emily at Once Wed and the incredibly cool Kat at RockNRollBride both write beautiful features on my most recent wedding. I will admit that I thought this would be a popular one when I spoke to Ella about Sam's suit and pried some details from her about that dress. I didn't know though, that she was going to look as amazing as she did, nor that there would be a surprise song during the wedding...

OnceWedTryAgain


It's always excellent when I have my work featured, but to have a double post between the US and the UK was really exciting. I know a lot of my ideal brides look to Once Wed for inspiration, as do I as a photographer, so it's been great to organise meets with a whole new audience. I have an exceptionally busy next few weeks on my hands!

RNRBfeatured

If you missed Ella & Sam's posts online, you can still catch up with Once Wed and RockNRoll Bride too.

Thank you both, for your beautiful posts.

Ella & Sam | Chloe Browne: London Wedding Photographer


You might recognise this bride from a wedding I photographed in September for her sister, with the red shoes. It turns out that style runs in the family...

I don't think I could write enough to explain how special it really was. Not only was Sam the most besotted groom, he laughed and joked all day in his bow tie and floral shirt, whilst Ella beamed and grinned and looked amazing at their very emotional English Heritage wedding in Greenwich. It was then off to the local wine vaults for a secret dinner, decked out with candles and hand-chosen gifts for everyone.

Such beautiful people, such beautiful details, such a beautiful day. Thank you both so much for letting me record it for you; it was an absolute honour.
