Portobello Market is just bursting with quirky details so it was the perfect location for Ben & Iman’s engagement shoot.  I had such fun photographing them stealing a kiss amongst the crowds in the market and against the colourful hustle and bustle of stalls and pretty houses, before strolling in the peaceful greenery of the local gardens.  Early summer days in London are dreamy and romantic and it was such a joy working with Ben and Iman who are creative, delightful and full of sparkle.

Look out for letterpress invitations, photographs and DIY details at their gorgeous wedding – photos to follow….

Shoot locations: Portobello Road Market, Ladbroke Grove, The Spice Shopletterpress stall, Makan Café

Incidentally, this was also the day the Electric Cinema went up in flames. Ben & Iman had just set off home on the train and I headed back into the market to find fire engines blocking the road, the stalls cordoned off and helicopters swirling overhead. Crazy to see! Thankfully the cinema is back up and running now and has adorable two seater sofas in the back row for people wanting to snuggle up to watch a film (or for lady photographers who like to spread out) with a cocktail or two.  Perfect for a romantic night (and Valentine’s day!)
