When I turned up in the morning to the Royal Automobile Club in order to photograph Kirsty’s bridal preparations, I quickly sent out a thought to the weather Gods, trying to persuade them to hold off the rain just for this day. The past weeks had seen an endless downfall of rain and just a few days earlier I had to photograph Kirsty and Luke’s pre wedding photos underneath an umbrella (which actually worked out quite well since they had a London themed wedding). The plans for the outdoor cocktail hour was looking shaky, but I can tell you, the sun was shining bright and warn the entire day – and not one drop of rain.Read More »
This very cool French-Caribbean couple are getting married this summer at the Notre Dame de France church on Leicester Square in London in two weeks time. It feels like yesterday when I met them in their flat in East London when there were still months to go! We originally planned their pre wedding session to take place a few weeks earlier, but when we showed up at the location near Bethnal Green it was pouring down with rain – typically London style. So instead we had a coffee and I had the privilege to hear the story of how they met and the romantic proposal Cindy never expected.Read More »
I can’t help myself, I just had to share these images from Ashley and Raymond’s wedding two days ago at the Marylebone Town Hall with a reception held at Beaufort House in Chelsea.

One important thing to remember as a wedding photographer, is that what you think is a beautiful and perfect image, might not be the image that your client prefers.Read More »
The future of my brand… What do I see in the future for Cecelina Photography? As a freelancer and the sole portrayer of your business, you often have to stop and think about where you are headed. My first years in building up a photography business I worked hard and sometimes lost sight of what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be. Now, I think I have a clear plan on what I want for Cecelina Photography (even though I realise that might change!) and myself.Read More »
This is a boho bridal photo shoot I organised a while ago, a little sneak peek to the images we created. I worked with an incredible team who put together the styling for the shoot we did on the roof tops of an East London studio. Our brief was boho bridal ad I wanted to shoot in a vintage style that still was quite modern. I have to hold on to the rest of the images for a little while as they might be published somewhere else, but as soon as I have the clear I will show you all the stunning images we took!Read More »
