Lekan and Grace – May 2010

About a year ago I photographed the wedding of Lekan and Grace. The ceremony took place at St Paul’s Church in Clapham and then moved on to the Memon Centre in Balham.

My day started off with a short bus ride from my flat in Stockwell to Grace’s parents’ house just of Clapham High street so that I could get some shots of Grace and her bridesmaids preparing for the day ahead:

I then headed on to the church in time for Grace’s arrival and entrance:

Due to some unfortunate weather, we had to rely on the back-up plan of taking formal group and couple photos in the church itself as opposed to some nearby gardens.

After the group shots were complete we all moved on to the Memon Centre:

First post, and a bit of a retrospective

I’m Will Strange and I’ve been photographing weddings for a good couple of years now. I’ve have the pleasure of shooting about 20 weddings in that time and have sampled almost as many cakes!

My preferred style of photography is the fly-on-the-wall style – I think the wedding mags call it ‘contemporary’ or ‘reportage’.  I strongly believe that capturing a wedding day in its entirety shouldn’t just be about the big events (first dance, ring exchange, formal photography etc) but also the more subtle nuances of the big day.

Here’s a little ‘best of’…
