Camden Market


Camden Market


Arguably North London’s most vibrant place, Camden Market is a veritable haven for beautiful imagery. From the beauty of the lock and the iconic market sign painted over a railway bridge, to the authentic punks, alternative fashions and the treasure troves of colour – the market stalls themselves. It’s a great place for portrait photography, street style and the food market makes it an awesome spot to capture great images of enviable food.


Highgate Wood

Highgate Wood


This is a great place if you’re into nature photography. The dense woodland means the area is bursting with animals, beautiful trees and interesting lighting effects. Perfect for spring, the woods also look incredible in autumn and of course, when it snows. If you get the chance, why not make a project out of it and track the changing of the seasons as your photography skills grow and develop?

If you’re planning your wedding right now, we bet you’re looking for the top wedding photography tips for brides and grooms. Your wedding photos are probably the most important memento of your big day, so it’s important to make the most of hiring a photographer.

Our first tip is to hire a professional photographer. You want to make sure you’re getting the best photos of your wedding, without having to worry that someone is taking photos. In short, you shouldn’t be trusting your wedding photography to your cousins or grandparents, as you won’t get high-quality shots from them.

For this pro post, we consulted a Bidvine pro, Adrian Cottrell of Peterborough Wedding Photographers, to learn more about his top wedding photography tips for couples. We’ve also scattered in some Bidvine tips to make sure you get the most advice possible!

Top Wedding Photography Tips for Couples

Here are a few practical wedding photography tips to help couples get the best from their professional photographer.


Choose a photogenic venue.

Try to choose a venue where your outside images will shine – for example, a churchyard full of gravestones will make your images look like something out of The Munsters!

Think of possible locations for photography when you select your wedding venue. If it doesn’t have any (like the above), then move on.


How long will you need us for?

You might like to have a photographer around for ‘ten hours or more’ (as seen on some quotes!). But, remember that photographers are human and that they need breaks too. Plan carefully where and when you need your photographer and you will use his time effectively and get the best pictures.

While La La Land may not have won Best Picture at this year’s Oscars, City of Stars did win Best Original Song! We think that City of Stars is the perfect addition to any wedding playlist, especially if you and your beau can learn the dance routines!



2. Shape of You – Ed Sheeran

3. Can’t Stop the Feeling! – Justin Timberlake

It’s pretty inevitable that a pop song from an animated movie becomes one of the top wedding songs each year. A few years ago it was Everything is Awesome from The Lego Movie, and this year it’s Can’t Stop the Feeling! from Trolls. Play this song at your wedding and allow Justin Timberlake to bring some high energy music to your dancing!



4. Mercy – Shawn Mendes

If you want to take a break from higher energy music, this Shawn Mendes tune is perfect. It’s a romantic song that will give your guests a chance to relax and sway to the music.
