Columbia rd flower market

Columbia rd flower market on a May summers day. The combination of heady scents, the sounds of musicians busking, the chaotic rhythm of the crowds moving back and forth, the east Londoners shouting their wares and the hustle and bustle of trendsters and expectant tourists is certainly a wonderful attack on all of the senses!

Kate Braithwaite Millinery

Kate Braithwaite MillinerA few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing a fashion/editorial photo shoot with Kate (pictured in the above photo) and her wonderfully stylish fedora hats. It took place in the stately Leadenhall market in London, the perfect spot for that classic English look. The models were great (very beautiful!) and we also had Ocho her fabulous dog in some of the photos too.

Hermione McCosh Photography London Engagement

A London Engagement

Kerron & Niki braved a cold day in January to explore the Dickensian centre of London. We started at Leadenhill market before wending our way through the little passages to the roof top café Madison overlooking St Paul’s cathedral to warm up. We ended the shoot as the lamps were being lit in Postman’s park famously used in the film Closer, we even found Alice Ayres!

Je suis Charlie, London

Today I wanted to take a moment to remember the horror of last week in Paris. Yesterday in Trafalgar Square thousands turned out to pay their respects and remember those who lost their lives. People held up pens, banners with the slogan Je suis Charlie or cartoons from the Charlie Hebdo magazine. The French national anthem, the Marseillaise was to be heard quietly being sung.  What often happens far away on the other side of the world has suddenly come closer to home and what was shown yesterday was solidarity and support from many different people from all types of cultures and religions.

Hermione McCosh Photography Weddings 2014

Wedding couples of 2014

A simply wonderful year of weddings that I want to relive with each individual couple whose wedding I was lucky enough to photograph in 2014.

I moved back to England in May and started with Camilla & Rohan’s wedding in Cheshire. On an English summer day in the middle of the middle of the countryside. I arrived early and spent the morning capturing the wonderful moments from dogs running around the garden to last moment decorations. Then of course the hair, make up and gorgeous dresses. They left the church in style on a red tractor and trailer. The reception was in a beautiful marquee on the lawn and the flowers were done by Rohan’s brother from Pinstripes & Peonies. See more photos of their wedding here.Hermione McCosh Photography - Camilla & Rohan wedding-Cheshire

Dave & Clare were married at the Inn on the Lake in the Lake District. An intimate midweek wedding including a boat ride around the lake Ullswater. There was the most wonderful tree in the garden that has to be one of my favouite spots to have photographed a couple. More photos of their wedding to be found earlier on my blog.Hermione McCosh Photography-Dave&Clare Wedding-Inn on the Lake- Cumbria

The summer continued with a Cumbrian wedding on midsummers day in the beautiful little church in Warcop. The bride walked through the fields from her house, followed by her bridesmaids in blue down to the church. The reception continued with tea in the garden, champagne and then in the evening country dancing & Asian inspired food. The flowers were done by the wonderfully talented Caro Dickinsen.

I then headed up to Scotland at the end of June for a wedding in Edinburgh which included a walk on the hills, a dog as the maid of honour, scottish reeling and of course lots of bagpipe playing! Scotland has tremendous light including black skies with rays of sunshine coming through, it definitely made for some inspiring moments.Hermione McCosh Photography

Charlie & Isobel

Lauriane & Emilie were married at the end of august just outside of Paris. Gay marriage has only recently become legal in France so it really was a special day for them both as well as an historical moment. They were like two nymphs in a garden and I felt like I was on a Vogue fashion shoot rather than a wedding. The day was very relaxed with as many children running around as adults enjoying themselves, there was a live band, delicious food and a photo studio. The DIY creations were exceptional!

The beginning of September brought me to Hampshire and I discovered a part of England I had never been to before. Roz was a fantastically relaxed bride doing all the bridesmaids hair before doing her own too! At sunset we caught the golden light up on a hill nearby with wonderful rolling countryside all around. The wedding was filled with music, laughter and fun. More photos here.Hermione McCosh Photography Hampshire wedding UKHermione McCosh Photography Hampshire wedding UK

Roz & Christopher

A Chilean and English wedding in Wales. I met Hattie & Corcho initially in Kensington Gardens to do some engagement photos and I knew their wedding was going to rememberable. They are a wonderfully fun and happy couple and it was a pleasure to be there. I particularly loved all of the paraffin lamps dotted around in the trees, very romantic! They now live in Chile and are about to put on a second wedding over there.Hermione McCosh Wedding Photography Hattie & Corcho Chepstow Wales Hermione McCosh Wedding Photography Hattie & Corcho Chepstow Wales Hermione McCosh Wedding Photography Hattie & Corcho Chepstow Wales

Back to France for a Parisian wedding at the end of September. The service was in the 5th arrondissement in the beautiful church of Saint-Médard. We then went on to the reception in the park Buttes de Chaumont. Again it was a wonderful mix of cultures as James is from Canada and Edith is French, my bilingual skills were needed! I also want to mention Edith’s dress which was beautifully made by Stephanie Wolff.Hermione McCosh Photography-2 Hermione McCosh Photography-3 Hermione McCosh Photography-4

My year finished just before Christmas with Fraser and Helen’s wedding in London. They were married in Mayfair and had the reception in Kings cross St Pancras. It felt strange being there and not getting a Eurostar!

Fraser & Helen

It has been the most wonderful year with so many beautiful brides and dashing grooms. I feel very lucky to do what I do. London is an exciting new city to live in and I look forward to the weddings already booked (and of course the un booked as well) that are happening in 2015.

 

 

Hermione McCosh Photography- London engagement shoot

A London engagement shoot

I was initially contacted by Charlotte’s brother who wanted to offer his sister and her fiancé Scott an engagement shoot as a present to celebrate. We met in a wonderful house in St John’s Wood on rather a cold winter morning. We started inside in a wonderfully bright room with windows at both ends before venturing into the garden for one or two outside moments. They will be married next year in the south of France which I think will be definitely somewhat warmer! Charlotte in fact designs wedding dresses and I can only imagine how fabulous it is to be able to make your very own dress.
