Outdoor Lake District wedding - Emma and Ollie

The Lake District has always been one of my favourite places to visit on holiday. And whenever I get a wedding enquiry for the Lakes I always think about the stunning scenery and peaceful settings the area has to offer… a photographers dream.

Emma + Ollie got married in the colourful gardens at Another Place hotel and spa, on the shores of Ullswater. The venue was just as amazing as I was hoping for!

When it comes to fitness I think these two wrote the book. They are both insanely fit. Emma went for a swim in the lake at 8am on the morning of her wedding… and Ollie and the lads went off to the nearest Park Run. Plus, as I was heading to the venue to photograph the girls going for their refreshing dip in the water I drove past Emma running towards me on the road… getting in a few miles under her feet before getting married!

The beautiful ceremony was conducted by a friend, and included some very emotional readings, and a great sing-a-long to “Are you ready for love?” by Elton John.

After some mingling and being congratulated by all their family and friends we made our way down to the lake some portraits in the glorious sunshine. It was then back up the hill to the yurt where the speeches and wedding breakfast were held, before making their way back into the main building and partying the night away with another friend helping out on DJ duty, and a band providing the music for a fun-packed and lively dancefloor. Seriously, I could go on and on with words about how gorgeous this day was… but its easier just to let you scroll down and see for yourself. Make sure you’ve got a good 30-60 minutes free before you dive in though.

Emma + Ollie, thanks for having me along for the day to document your wedding day as it so beautifully unfolded in front of me. You were both such a joy to spend the day with, and totally embraced my relaxed and chilled-out approach to photographing weddings. I hope you and your families enjoy these fun and natural images I captured for many years to come.

London pub wedding photography - Lordship Pub - Nat and James

“Wow. Just... just WOW.

We have just had our wedding photos back from Ed, and they have surpassed every hope we had for them. They're not only brilliantly shot (I mean, Ed, please take EVERY photo of me for the rest of my life), but they're a full documentary memory of the day. Every little detail is captured, and he's somehow managed to snap the exact personality of each and every guest. They're absolutely incredible.

Ed will make you feel so at ease, you'll barely notice that he's there - except you do want to notice him, as he's such a great guy you'll feel like he's one of your invited guests. He worked tirelessly, still shooting things he loved the look of even as he was packing up to leave. That's how much Ed cares about your day. He'll make you feel like yours is the most important shoot he's ever done, and you'll LOVE the results.

As a side note, we did our wedding on quite a modest budget by wedding madness standard, but prioritised the photography as something worth spending money on. You never get a second chance to capture it right.

If you feel similarly, Ed is 100% the man for the job.” - Nat + James

3 days of wedding fun in London and Barcelona - Poppy and Karim

FUN FUN FUN! That pretty much sums up the 3 days I spent shooting this wedding. Poppy + Karim are the nicest couple EVER! So chilled-out, loved-up, and totally made for each other. The love they have for each other (and their friends) is immense. They said they just wanted to have a great party with all their friends and family, and boy did they do that!

I could easily write a hell of a lot about this wedding, and also about this fantastic couple… but seeing as its probably the biggest wedding blog I’ve ever put together I’ll just shut up now, and let you scroll away, and be jealous that you weren’t invited to this stunning trio of weddings.

// HERE’S THE VERY LOVELY GOOGLE REVIEW POPPY+KARIM LEFT FOR ME //

We are so in love with Ed Godden. Booking him as your wedding photographer will be the absolute best decision that you make.


Ed is an unmatched and killer combination of incredibly talented, hard-working and an amazing eye behind the camera, together with being the most relaxed, kind and hilarious person.

The quality of his work - the colour, movement, vibrancy, wit and emotion - speaks for itself. We couldn’t be more delighted with the photos. On top of that he is a total pleasure to be with: friendly and warm, and able to put you completely at ease in front of the camera. It really is like hanging out with a mate. In another review someone said that it was like having a “super-talented best friend with ninja and mind-reading skills” – that is spot on! He is also very professional: he’s totally on top of all organisation and very trustworthy in that respect.

Ed kindly photographed not one, not two, but three events for us: he was equally as brilliant when it was just five of us cruising around Hackney, making jokes and stopping for beers, as he was when somehow capturing every nuanced moment of two 120-person-strong parties in Barcelona.

If you’re looking for formal family portraits or anything super traditional, someone else might be better for you. But if you’re after achingly cool, individual and hilarious photos of your human pyramid at 4am on the dancefloor, there is no one better. (Shout out to Ed’s incredible stamina for taking brilliant quality photos right through to when the venue finally threw us out!)

I won’t ruin the surprise for future clients, but the surprise pressies he throws in to the finished package are a lovely touch. My advice: book him now, and the more that you are relaxed and trust Ed to get on with doing his thing, the better!

The icing on the cake is that some of our best friends have now booked Ed for their wedding too (they actually made the booking at 3am on the dancefloor at our wedding, they were so impressed with him!) – so we get to hang out with him again in a few months’ time. See you in the human pyramid, Ed!
