This is what I would like to do for you at your wedding! Leica wedding photography images using a 1950s design Leica M3 film camera (and other Leica cameras plus a Hasselblad). If couples give me the time and showed interest these are the type of wedding photos I would like to do at every wedding (plus more outside wedding pictures when the weather is favourable!) 🙂

Wedding Venue – The Saxon Mill, Warwick UK
Sarah and Mike’s Wedding was my second Saxon Mill wedding and it was great to be back. The building has great character and even better surroundings with the views across the River Avon to Guys Cliffe. The day actually started in the morning at Chesford Grange Hotel for Sarah’s bridal preparation photos. From there we moved onto the Saxon Mill for the wedding ceremony that was held upstairs. It was not a huge wedding so the room worked well for the number of guests. After the ceremony we did group photos and wedding portraits outside then back upstairs to sit down to eat for the wedding breakfast, speeches and cake cutting. My day finished after the first dance and it was then time to pack up and drive…

Wedding Venue – Eaton Hotel, Birmingham UK
I started the day with Mat and his guests at The Bell pub in Harborne next door to the church. Sian met us at the church then after the wedding ceremony we did the group photos then moved on to Eaton Hotel on the Hagley Road for the wedding breakfast and evening guests arriving.
Here is a selection of photos from the wedding day. The couple opted for digital wedding photography and I had planned to do some additional medium format film photography but we didn’t get chance due to time constraints.
Digital Photos – Leica M9 + Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.0 at f1 for most of the day (including all group photos at 50f1)(excluding some 21mm f2.8 + 28mm f2 wide angle photos…

Wedding Venue – Highnam Court, Gloucestershire
It was my second visit to Highnam in Gloucestershire as I was there last year for Paul and Deb’s wedding. Deb’s was one of Sam’s bridesmaids so you may recognise her! We had the wedding ceremony at Highnam Church then moved across the field to Highnam Court for the rest of the day.
Here are a selection of photos from Sam and Chris’s wedding day. The couple opted for a mixture of digital wedding photography and medium format film photography.
Digital Photos – Leica M9 + Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.0 at f1 was used for most of the day (including all group photos at f1)(excluding some 21mmf2.8 & 28mmf2 wide angle lens shots, some 90mmf2 Summicron photos for the speeches and the 75mmf2 Cron photos for detail images).
Film Photography – 1980s Fujica GS645 medium format folding film camera + 120 Fuji Pro 400H film (lab developed and scanned with an Epson v600 scanner)
Venue for Engagement Shoot: Coombe Abbey Hotel, Coventry + Coventry Studio
Pre-wedding engagement photography a using a Leica M9 camera. You may recognise Maria from past Flickr photos I have shared as she has modelled for me before. Maria asked if I could do a black and white studio photography shoot for her and Dior who recently got engaged. I agreed but recommended we also did an outside location shoot too as that is where the Leica Noctilux 50mm f1.0 v2 lens really comes into it’s own. With that all agreed we did a part one and part two shoot, with the first being in the studio and getting Dior used to the camera and the second at the popular Coventry wedding venue, Coombe Abbey Hotel as it is only down the road from them.
Alexa and Rich opted for a mix of film photography and digital photography for their wedding day. Here are a selection of the film photos taken at Hatton Hall, Warwickshire wedding venue using my 1950s Leica M2 loaded with 35mm Kodak Portra film. I used a Leica Summilux ASPH 50mm f1.4 lens for most of the day. Lens used is marked on each photo.
(These photos were also shared as part of the “Wedding: Alexa & Rich” blog post however as they were tucked away at the bottom I thought I better re post to make them more findable).
