You may have seen Gemma Reynolds’ work in Conde Nast “Brides” Magazine earlier this year (she was the Central London Wedding Photographer in their May/June 09 directory, and has been asked back for Jan/Feb 2010). She has also recently been asked by British Vogue to be in their top 12 recommended wedding photographers for Dec 09 issue so its not only me that is her loving her very talented and creative work. Check out these pics below which show examples of her work….
A few words from Gemma herself on these photos and her work….
“I photographed some beautiful Vintage Brides at “Preston Court” in Canterbury. It is such a stunning venue and really enabled the brides to just feel free and at ease, as it should be. Wedding photography is a lot of fun and I really enjoy having the chance to bring out the best in people. Some of the venue’s in the photographs also include The Tythe Barn in Bicester, The Dorchester London, and The Harbour Heights in Sandbanks”
“As well as photographing Weddings, I also use a beautiful studio in central London W1 and have a very strong team of make-up artists at hand. Here I offer brides the chance to have photographs taken before their wedding as a wonderful gift for their loved one, or even just for them! Some of my girls have given it to ‘him’ on the Wedding night, and others saved it right up to the honeymoon. It can be done in what ever style you wish. We can use wedding lingerie, or ‘his’ comfy shirt with your favourite stiletto’s? Whichever ever era you adore too. These can be put together to form a little black photograph album in a cute little black suitcase. I call it the book of ‘I Love You’s’ ”
“After your wedding day, brides can also come back to the studio, or we can venture to a location of your choice, and do a ‘fashion style’ shoot in your wedding dress. This is a great opportunity to really get the best out of that incredible dress. These can make wonderful additions to your final wedding album or a one off framed portrait for your home. This shoot does not have to be just for the bride, as you may prefer to have the groom present too, and even close family and bridesmaids.”

I love this Vintage Wedding shoot for Lindsay Fleming’s new 20′s inspired wedding dress collection shot by Mark of Archibald Photography (he just won an award for one of the pics from this shoot which I featured in my round up of wedding blogs last week)
(There is actually an updated version of this post with many more photos for inspiration to have a look at 1920′s inspired wedding dresses )
Lindsay Fleming are award winning designers normally highly regarded for their celtic wedding dress designs. However Lindsay Fleming have just launched something totally different -their new vintage inspired wedding dress collection is called ‘All That Jazz’. The thrilling care free period of the roaring 20s provide the inspiration for Lindsay Fleming’s new collection and I think it’s going to create a huge buzz.
1920's wedding style shoot - shot by Archibald Photography
Photography all by Archibald Photography – award winning photographers based in Scotland
Lauren Tempany modelled the creations and House for an Art Lover in Glasgow was used to provide an authentic backdrop. Baba-C Designs created some 20s inspired headpieces especially for the shoot which looked amazing too, whilst Authentic 20s makeup was by Ainsley M and hair was by Volume Hair.
What a fantastic shoot – its clear that there were lots of talented people involved and the photos are just gorgeous. I can see these dresses are going to be so popular with all the brides that are loving their vintage inspired weddings.
Thanks Mark for sharing these with us – if you are loving the look of his work then do make sure that you check out their Archibald Photography blog where there are loads more examples of his wedding photos. You can also see the shot that recently won him Gold at the SWPP monthly competition from this fashion shoot.
Clearly the team at Archibald Photography had a great time on this wedding shoot
“What a blast we all had on this project. My aim was to create a classic art deco feel to these images and give them a relaxed vintage atmosphere. The dresses by Lindsay Fleming are so classy and elegant and I wanted the photographs to reflect that. It’s always lovely to work with talented people who are 100% into what they do. These images simply reflect a very very beautiful range of dresses. On the day the photography was kept very spontaneous and fun. I like to incorporate this in my fashion work as I think a bored looking model won’t do any product justice. We all had such fun and a great laugh that I can’t wait to shoot the next range of dresses! Hurry up and get designing Grace!”
Let me know your thoughts on this collection – would love to hear from any brides to be that are going vintage and where you get your dress from.
I think that these wedding photos are just absolutely gorgeous. The backdrop is perfect for this couture bridal shoot with all dresses from the designer Kosibah (and all photos taken by the very talented Sarah Louise Johnson). It makes me want to get married all over again…..
