Best of Wedding Photography 2017

42 Amazing weddings all around the UK and even abroad, such an epic year of weddings!

Best of Wedding Photography 2017:  I sit here finalising this review of my 2017 wedding photography and I think back to the 42 weddings that it has been such a pleasure to be a part of. I think about all the amazing moments at each one, emotions, touching vows, crazy best man stories, awesome super funky dancing, it has all been so amazing.  My weddings this year have taken me all round the South of England, the Midlands, Yorkshire and even to Cassino in Italy.  I feel truly blessed to be part of each individual day, working through 2017 and photographing each and every one of my amazing couples special days has been yet another awesome year long whirlwind journey.

I would like to thank each and every one of my couples for trusting me to be their wedding photographer and allow me to be a big part of their wedding, showcasing their day in a series of unforgettable moments.  I’ve been treated extremely well at each wedding, with a variety of snacks offered with countless cuppa’s, lunch and importantly some very special and tasty cuisine during wedding breakfast.  I honestly don’t expect any of it, so thank you to everyone.

Choosing my selection of 2017 weddings has been so hard and I’ve been agonising over this set for a number of weeks. Every wedding I’ve photographed in 2017 is in here, however whittling down approx. 25,000 images delivered over 42 weddings has been so tough. I wish that I could have included more to show the world how amazing all you guys are.  A small selection of the images are showcased in this blog, however the full review is in the slideshow, so please sit back, turn the volume up LOUD and enjoy what has been such an amazing year. The bigger screen you can watch it on, the better!

I’m well on my way to my target of 40 weddings for 2018, however as I write this I do have room left even for a few key prime dates so if you enjoyed this slideshow and would like to talk to me about your own awesome wedding plans, please drop me a note using the contact form.  Thank you and a prosperous 2018 to everyone!

Ashridge House Wedding – Kim & Matthew

Ashridge House Wedding - Kim & Matthew

Ashridge House is such a beautiful setting for a wedding, I present Kim & Matthew’s wedding day!

Ashridge House Wedding – Kim & Matthew – Meeting Kim and Matthew a few weeks before their day to walk and talk our way around Ashridge House made my jaw drop.  Every time I come here and see how stunning this place is, I just get so excited about photographing a wedding here, such a beautiful beautiful place.  On the big day, arriving to meet Kim and her ‘entourage’, it was such a busy bride prep with makeup everywhere, bridesmaids face timing mum, sisters, daughters, lots of random stuff going on, and in the middle of it all, cool as a cucumber, Kim.

Matthew maybe wasn’t quite so calm, I think I could see some nerves as we got closer to W-hour, however when Kim arrived down the stairs in the Main Hall, Matthew’s smile just said it all. This was the start of a wonderful day, blessed with great weather and a super collection of family and guests, the whole day from beginning to end was just amazing.  During the afternoon we took a good walk around the grounds and also spent some time in the chapel for portraits, all to not only give the couple a nice set of memories as the newly weds, but also to have a little bit of time to themselves.

Thank you to Kim & Matthew for not only choosing me as their wedding photographer, also for looking after me during the day, and for these awesome reviews!

‘Marcus was first class start to finish, his professionalism was outstanding, passion for his work was amazing and he went above and beyond what we could have ever asked for. He was very organised, firmly but ever so politely (perfect balance) got people together and arranged them in group shots in a quick and fun manner. His photos are amazing and has captured the magic of the day.  Worth every penny we spent with him. If your after a genuine hard working professional photographer with a huge passion for his work then look no further than Marcus Charter Photography.’ Matthew

‘We have just received our photos and we love them. There are so many memories you managed to capture that will we be able to look back on forever. We cannot possibly thank you enough and would highly recommend you!!’ Kim

Congratulations guys!

Dodford Manor Wedding – Suz & Jay

Dodford Manor Wedding - Suz & Jay

With a beautiful sunset at the stunning Dodford Manor Wedding Venue

Dodford Manor Wedding – Suz & Jay – I have such fond memories of this epic wedding day.  No pretence, no showcasing, just an awesome couple getting married and looking to have much fun as possible whilst doing so.  It all started I’m told by Jay proposing to Suz whilst they were both up a tree, so when we were talking about this during one of our early meetings, I kind of got the idea that everything about this wedding would be just the sort of celebration I love to be a part of.

Memorable moments from the day include the bridesman, who could be heard ALL over the hotel during prep even though she was only in the groom prep room (it’s a big hotel as well), Suz’s mum who seem to love the camera a LOT, and of course the epic sunset which is always the dream signature shot at Dodford Manor.  Suz and Jay absolutely nailed this memory by running straight out after their dessert (still chewing), climbed over a fence and arrived bang on cue a little out of breath to capture the epic last bit of light. Top job guys!

Thank you guys for choosing me as your wedding photographer, you’ve sent me a few notes saying how much I helped you enjoy your day, I really appreciate that however you guys were awesome, you gave me the time and freedom just to let me work, letting me capture these wonderful memories.  It doubly means so much as Jay you worked previously as a wedding photographer and Suz works in the movie industry, I know you have an eye for detail. A massive congratulations to you guys and thanks to both for the reviews left!

‘Most amazing photographer ever!! I cannot recommend Marcus enough!’ – Suz

‘It wouldn’t have been anywhere near as great a day if you weren’t there. Honestly, I think you were amazing and helped us to enjoy our day so much!  Absolutely amazing photographer and amazing personality. You can’t ask for more!’ – Jay

A huge shout out to the boys at Silk and Satin weddings – VW Camper Hire, loads of fun and professional with it!

Oxford Pre Wedding – Jessica and Nathan

A different pre wedding shoot in Oxford with the awesome Jessica and Nathan

Oxford Pre Wedding – Jessica and Nathan got engaged in Oxford, so after being booked to shoot their wedding they also arranged to have their pre-wedding shoot in Oxford to provide them with some great memories, reliving this special time again.  Nathan asked Jess to marry him at the Trout Inn, so we started here and then moved on to Oxford City Centre for a good walk around the University area.  Lots of laughs as we walked around, with Jess continually prompting Nathan to stop pulling ‘that face’. Great times and can’t wait for their wedding in February.

Pre-wedding shoots for couples getting married mean so many different things.  For some it is a bit of posing practice before their big day, others it is a chance to start making their wedding ‘feel real’, maybe the images would be used for a ‘save the date’ invite and some have the images made in to a guest signing book for their big day, everyone has their own reasons.  Whether couples decide to have this photo shoot at a local beauty spot, at their venue, or somewhere a bit different, I’m always happy to explore different possibilities to make the shoot unique to each couple.

Halton House Wedding – Sam & Joe

The Wedding of Sam & Joe at the Stunning RAF Halton House officers Mess in Buckinghamshire

Halton House Wedding – Sam & Joe.  Samantha booked me to photograph her wedding to Joseph by finding me on Google, so to finally meet her at RAF Halton House on the day before her wedding was an absolute pleasure. Joseph however wasn’t around yet as he was flying in that evening.  Having photographed weddings at the Officers Mess and knowing that they generally host weddings with a military connection, I found out that Joseph is an officer in the RAF Regiment, but surprisingly also found that Samantha is an officer in the Merchant Navy, piloting large ships around the Indian Ocean!

Both bride and groom were getting ready at Halton House, with enough room to ensure that the wedding parties wouldn’t bump in to each other before the ceremony. The general agreement of the day was to keep the military dress to a minimum and as you’ll see from the photos below, Joseph had a little surprise for everyone during the speeches, which was pretty awesome.

This day was just insane all the way through, I was so thrilled to be at the Officers Mess which is such a beautiful venue inside and out, Samantha and Joseph with all their family and friends were having such a great day and the evening partying was just awesome.

A massive congratulations to Sam and Joe, such an amazing day, thank you for choosing me to be your wedding photographer.  Thank you also for the touching review!

‘Marcus was wonderful. We could not have found a more perfect photographer for our wedding. Extremely talented and professional with a great personality he was a big part of our day and such a pleasure to have!’
