Documentary Wedding Photographer London

November 17, 2019

I've been workings as a documentary wedding photographer in London for many years so I wanted to share some candid wedding photos. It's the type of wedding photography I enjoy the most both on the day and later when looking through the photos. I'm not sure why wedding photography isn't always shot in this natural way. Maybe, because in the past, photographers had much less freedom and had to stage their shots to make sure they came out right. Today's candid wedding photography is the best way of capturing the day. Most of the couples I talk to don't like posed shots and prefer that we mainly document their day and capture the mood and atmosphere.

Natural Wedding photos

Sometimes, the best wedding photos are the ones you don't plan.

You might notice the Weddings by Odi logo on some of the photos. That's because I also have a separate website dedicated purely to documentary wedding photography. Check it out to for more wedding galleries.

Some candid wedding moments in Islington's Unity Hall.

Most of the weddings I photograph are in Islington and North London. I'm based in the area and know the ceremony and reception venues well.

Some of the most authentic wedding photos are when people aren't watching.

I took this at a wedding in Hammersmith a few years back. I think I had to hold the camera in the air and shoot down do get above the crowd. Lucky aim!

Most ceremony venues allow me to take photos of the actual signing. Some places, mostly outside London are a bit more strict and ask that I do a "fake signing". The one in the shot is real and was taken in Islington Town Hall.

Photographing wedding dances can be challenging but it's good fun and worth the effort.
