Francesca & Andy – London Engagement Shoot

On a perfect late spring day towards the end of last month Christian and I set off on a trip to London to meet up with a very cute couple – Francesca and Andy, whose wedding we are looking forward to shooting at the same time next year!  Francesca had chosen two beautiful settings for the shoot – starting with Kenwood House gardens (where thanks to our terrible start to the spring and summer weather, the azaleas were still in beautifully vibrant bloom) and Temple.  Everything about the day was a complete treat!  From getting to know this charming and very photogenic couple, to spending time in these picturesque locations, and finally to being able to shoot the whole affair entirely on medium format film to bring out all the amazing colours – nothing could have been better!  For the film buffs among you these were all shot on Fuji 400H film with our much loved Contax 645 cameras…developed and scanned by us aka UK Film Lab.  Thanks Francesca and Andy for a wonderful day, and we hope you enjoy looking at the photographs as much as we enjoyed taking them!

Jenna & Rob | Hertfordshire Engagement Photography

A few weeks ago we travelled down to Hertfordshire to meet Jenna and Rob for the first time, and to do their engagement shoot….they’re getting married in just a few weeks and I can’t believe how quickly it’s come around! There are many things to love about this shoot….early spring light, such a happy couple, yellow Hunter wellies, and overall just a lovely colour palette. We had a lot of fun and it was a real pleasure to spend time with Jenna and Rob…see you both in a few weeks!

Medium Format Film Photography | Christian Ward Photography

As some will know, we’ve been shooting more medium format film recently. As well as film being part of our new venture, One Experience which you can find at we’ve been shooting some creative projects. We were pretty pleased to have one of our film shots published on The FIND Lab’s blog…The FIND Lab is the amazing lab we use for all our film processing. This is the shot they featured…

Imperial War Museum Wedding | Manchester Museum | Lindsey & David

Back in October we travelled over to Manchester to shoot Lindsey and David’s wedding. The venues were really venues with a difference…the ceremony was at the Manchester Museum, complete with T-Rex, and the reception was at the Imperial War Museum North. The Imperial War Museum made such an atmospheric reception venue with its lighting and unique museum displays, and we loved Lindsey and David’s idea to project classic films such as Casablanca onto a wall throughout. An amazing wedding and an amazing couple- take a look at the whole story below. Thanks again to Annabel from Love My Dress for featuring this great wedding!
