Finally - a Red London Routemaster Bus to photograph by Simon Cardwell

I've always wanted to photograph a red London Routemaster Bus. 

I lived & worked in London for 12 years & never had a wedding job that included one. In my early years in the capital these original buses were still in use & I would regularly clamber up the stairs to the upper deck (not an easy feat for someone 6' 4" tall). 

Ironically the bus number 73 (on this bus) was one of the routes I regularly used for years, which was a nice personal touch. 

So with all that in mind I was surprised to find one at a wedding in Newton Aycliffe (not far from where I now live in my hometown of Darlington). The couple had not mentioned it in advance so it was a great surprise. 

I tried to get as many different photographs with the bus as I could. Some inside, some outside, some with the bridal party & some with just the bride & groom. 

Here they are I hope you like them:

Wedding Photography on Saltburn Pier & sea front by Simon Cardwell

As I've mentioned before, sometimes I don't have long to get the photos I need on the day. It is often a case of a small window of time to get as many shots as you can. 

On this occasion we found ourselves on Saltburn Pier on a cold November day. 

I work at the Spa Hotel in Saltburn a couple of times a year but up until now I have not had a couple that have requested to go to the sea front & pier for photographs. 

So I was pleased on this occasion when the bride & groom asked me to go down there for photographs. 

Here are my favourites from on the day:

Wedding Photography in a rural church & farm by Simon Cardwell

Today I would like to show you some photographs from the first wedding I photographed in 2018.

Taking place on a rurally located church meant the mud & damp ground was a factor but also presented some interesting photographs. 

Here is a selection of the ceremony (before & immediately after) only. I think there are some very unique pictures here that I don't often get the chance to take:
