We share the wedding day of Sylvia and Andrew who got married and has their reception at The Ned in London. Their day was captured by Corina Oghina.
About the couple:
I met Sylvia and Andrew a few months before their wedding and loved how fun and relaxed they were about everything. We had some drinks and chatted about their plans and we all knew we’re going to have fun and enjoy their day! They were both a bit concerned about being in front of the camera, however as soon as I explained my relaxed and natural way of working all worries were out the window.
A little bit about the day and how it went:
We started the day with a small ceremony at the Southwark Register office with only the bride and groom and 3 guests. It was truly beautiful and intimate. Afterwards we moved to The Ned in central London and enjoyed a very chill bridal prep. Everything ran smoothly and it was a joy to be around so many smiling faces and fun kids. We had a caricaturist, an educational show for kids and some great dance moves later in the evening.
Do tell us a little bit about yourself:
I’m a wedding photographer based in Brighton, adventuring all over for my photography. I’ve always had a soft spot for photography and true life stories, loving people just being themselves and enjoying life as it is. I think this is what brought me to wedding photography: having the privilege to capture one amazingly intense and fun day, surrounded by happy faces and incredible life stories.
How would you describe your photography style?
My photography style is fun, relaxed, fuss free, with a pinch of quiet moments. I’m not there to make everybody look perfect, I’m there to capture all the little moments, the meaningful looks, the tears of joy and the couple having the best time with their family and friends!
What did you love about the day?
I loved how intimate and lovely the whole day felt. I felt like being a part of the family and we celebrated together. It was great to see that Sylvia and Andrew really trusted me and allowed me to work effortlessly to capture their day as amazing as it was.
What advice would you give to couples planning their wedding day?
I have only one advice that I give my couples and it sounds like a cliche but honestly is that simple: Be yourself, enjoy yourself, love freely and have a blast! Don’t worry about your wedding photography – that is my job 🙂
A testimonial from my couple:
“We met with a couple of photographers during our search and we knew after our first meeting with Corina that she is who we wanted to work with.
Neither of us are particularly comfortable in front of a camera, and overly staged photos was something we wanted to avoid. Corina really put our minds at ease with her suggestions, ideas and overall manner. Her candid ‘in the moment’ photography style is exactly we were looking for. She was super organised before the day and on the actual day she zoomed around in the background capturing moments as they happened. She stayed with us till the end of the evening, ensuring she recorded the entire day. Our photos are amazing and they will always be treasured. Oh and they were delivered exactly when she said they would be! We would not hesitate to recommend her.” Sylvia and Andrew
