We feature the gorgeous wedding of Laura and Tom today captured by wedding photographer Edward Thomas Photography.
Do tell us about the couple:
Laura and Tom are a gorgeous young vibrant couple full of energy and enthusiasm. They meet each other at University at a party in their 2nd year and instantly fell in love. I first meet them about 2 months before the wedding to have a chat and we connected very well and I knew it would be a couple that I could work with easily as we formed an instant bond and relationship, which is very important.
Please tell us a little bit about the day and how it went:
It was a fantastic day and we were very lucky with the English weather! The venue was brilliant, at the Hilton Brighton Metrople hotel. Laura was a little late for the wedding after getting stuck in traffic, so it was a first for me having to suddenly adapt to some needed changes to the day’s events. The family were fantastic fun and Laura and Tom both looked stunning and showed so much love for each other. After the ceremony and more formal family shots I took Laura and Tom off for 30 mins to the local park to get some more intimate and fun shots. They both changed into some more casual and comfortable clothes to create the pictures that they wanted. We then all returned to the venue to enjoy the party and drinks reception. It was a long day but such a pleasure to meet and photograph this lovely beautiful couple.
Do tell us a little bit about yourself:
I am a Brighton based wedding photographer who covers the entire region on Sussex and London. I am a very friendly and engaging photographer that gets on well with people from most backgrounds. I was originally inspired to become a photographer after the death of my late brother to cancer, back in 2009, which changed my entire perspective of life. I enjoy capturing the natural beauty and emotions of people and the world around us and enjoy exhibiting these fine details in my work.
How would you describe your photography style?
A mixed style of documentary and more modern creative elegance. I engage well with both the couple and the family and I feel this shines through on my photography. I like to tell a magical love story of the day in pictorial form and capture the beauty and essence of the type of people I am photographing. Each wedding is unique to the personalities of the people and I try to portray this in the most fitting way to capture the essence of who they are.
What did you love about the day?
It’s always special to capture someones special day and document the emotions of all the people that are so important to it! Laura and Tom’s wedding was fun and full of laughter. I loved the energy of this young couple and found that extra special from a personal view point.
