Portmeirion Wedding Photographer | Lindsey + Jon

Portmeirion wedding photographer Mathew Quake always enjoys capturing weddings at this unique, beautiful wedding venue on the coast of North Wales. It was a pleasure to capture Lindsey and Jon’s wedding in July, at Portmeirion, my favourite wedding venue. Although we had spoken on the phone we didn’t meet in person until the day before the wedding, when we had a chat about the order of the day in more detail. Whilst chatting we discovered that both Jon’s grandmother and my own were very good friends at one time, which was a lovely connection to have to the groom. They seemed very relaxed about the day and I appreciated their faith in me to capture lovely photographs of them during the day and at the best spots in Portmeirion Village. The wedding itself was conducted at St Johns church in Porthmadog, where an intimate service was held, followed with the wedding reception at Castell Deudraeth, part of the Portmeirion estate. On arrival at the castle, Lindsey, Jon and I went into the village for some softly directed photographs of them both at some of the best spots, finishing at the lovely Chinese inspired garden in the woodland, before heading back to join guests for a champagne reception. The whole day felt very relaxed, with the weather on our side and guests enjoying the beautiful surroundings, food and wine. I noticed that Lindsey and Jon held each other’s hand and shared a kiss often through the day, it was easy to see how close a bond they share and I couldn’t be happier for them. Very best wishes to the two of you for the future, please enjoy a sneak peek at your wedding day.

 

Century Club London Wedding Photographer | Helen + Dale

Photographs from Century Club London Wedding Photographer Mathew Quake, featuring Dale and Helen’s wedding. I met Dale and Helen in sunny Richmond to chat about their wedding day plans. I admired their relaxed approach to the day, they were very easy going, a lovely couple and well suited, I instantly liked them and was really happy they booked me. I started the day at The Reform Club, to capture Helen getting ready, then on to the Century Club itself to photograph the ceremony, complete with lots of beaming smiles and giggles from set bride and groom. During the drinks reception we took a few nice shots of Dale and Helen at the club itself, then a short walk through China Town, capturing a few candid shots in and amongst the hustle and bustle of London. The wedding breakfast was conducted on the roof terrance, one of the nicest spots for dinner in London. The speeches were probably the best I have witnessed at a wedding, especially the best man’s speech (Dale’s brother), what a legend of a performance and an awesome magic trick. One of the things I noticed most about Dale and Helen through the day was how much fun they had, they laugh and smile a lot, it’s infectious, lovely to see and be part of. Best wishes for the future to both of you.

Pembroke Lodge Richmond Wedding Photography | Danielle + John

Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park, was the reception venue for Danielle and John’s wedding.  I initially met them at the lodge earlier this year for a coffee and a chat about the big day and instantly warmed to them. The service was at nearby Saint Andrews Church, situated at the edge of the park. The service was lovely, with the newly married couple exiting the ceremony with a guard of honour, under an impressive archway of swords (and token umbrella), filling everyone with pride and joy. With the early sunset looming, we marched on to the park for bride and groom photos, snaps of friends and family, before the wedding breakfast and an eclectic mix of great speeches. As always, a really good crowd of guests, which made for some great moments to capture. Here are just a few shots from the day, best wishes to Danielle and John for the future.

The Berkeley Hotel Wedding Photography | Danielle and Jon

The Berkeley Hotel, (Knightsbridge), was the venue for Danielle and Jon’s wedding in London.  I was so pleased to get this booking because they were both such a nice couple and given their relaxed attitude towards the day I got a sense it was going to be great wedding. The service and reception was at the hotel itself, so everything could be captured in one place. Despite the rain we managed to get outside for a few photographs and it didn’t stop some nice outdoor moments, with the hotel as a backdrop, being captured. There was a really good crowd of guests, which made for some great moments to capture. Here are just a few shots from the day, best wishes to Danielle and Jon for the future.

St Paul’s Cathedral Wedding Photography | Heather + James

It’s an honor to be invited to any wedding at St Paul’s Cathedral, but it’s even more special when you get to photograph it all and be part of a great couple’s special day.  When Heather and James booked me over a year ago I was really looking forward to it. I thought they were a lovely couple , very relaxed about the whole thing, a great attitude towards planning their big day. Plus, they were getting married at one of the most famous cathedrals in the world and having their reception at one of my favorite little venues, Dartmouth House in Mayfair, happy days all round. The day started off at St Pauls, photographing guests arriving and spending a bit of time capturing the groom , best man and ushers. It was nice to see that a little crowd of onlookers had gathered to await Heather’s arrival, I thought that would be nice for her to see. After the service, we aimed for the steps at the front and gathered everyone for a huge group photo, which ended up looking great so I was pretty pleased about that. After family pics and capturing some nice shots of Heather and James, we headed to Dartmouth House for the reception, wedding breakfast and first dance before I departed. A thoroughly enjoyable day, here are a few highlights from different parts of the day. Enjoy!
