5.10 am - Fleet Rail Station, heading to London Waterloo... too early, isn't it? Well, sometimes when you want to achieve something different you've got to suffer. Actually, Elaine and I had a fun conversation about Spanish and Chinese sayings... It was raining, cold and windy in London but, as we said if you want to be pretty you've got to suffer... just a little bit. Anyway, we got what we were looking for: London was empty.
The rain stopped and the sun began to rise behind some light clouds. The perfect setting for their engagement session.
And that's all by now, because this is just a sneak peek, so if you want to know more you've got to wait a little. However, you can enjoy some of the pictures we took while I upload the completed post on my blog.
WHEN LOVE MEETS THE RIVER THAMES: Gemma and Craig chose Marlow as the location for their engagement session because you guessed it, it is a very special place for them. They have spent a lot of time walking the beautiful and rich meadows you can find there and of course alongside the stunning River Thames.
NOTHING LIKE A PRINTED PHOTOGRAPH: I always reiterate that a digital photograph has nothing to do with a printed one… you have only to see the faces of my couples when they open their Queensberry Album for the first time. There’s something about printed photos that resonate with our souls, with our conscience…
BEAUTIFUL WEDDING IN THE COUNTRYSIDE: The day began at “The Swan Hotel”, in Bibury where the Bride was getting ready for the big day. When I arrived I saw what I love so so much: a lot of emotion and nerves form the Bride, her mother and all the family and members who were with her helping with everything.
ENGAGEMENT AT VIRGINIA WATER LAKE ROYAL PARK. If there’s a location that I love to visit again and again that’s Virginia Water Lake. And when you go there with excellent company you can’t ask for more. Amanda & Evan love Virginia Water too, they enjoyed lots of good walks there with their dogs so they thought it would be the perfect location for their engagement photos and I couldn’t agree more!

The online Private Area is the place where you will find everything you need for your wedding photography and the easiest way to access all the information, galleries, albums etc…
LUXLIFE WEDDING AWARDS - MANU MENDOZA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY So, this happened! I’ve been awarded “Most Innovative Wedding Photographer 2019” by LuxLife Wedding Awards.
A VINEYARD, A TIPI AND A LOT OF LOVE… Wilhelmina and Megan first met at college and quickly became the best of friends. Through their friendship, they grew closer and found themselves having feelings of more than friendship towards each other. They spent a couple of years keeping this private but they both knew their feelings were
GEMMA + CRAIG, THE WEDDING AT FROYLE PARK, HAMPSHIRE - LAST WEDDING OF 2018
We did say goodbye to 2018 and what better way than celebrating a wedding! And this one was even more special, because Gemma & Craig decided to get married on the 29th of December because they had their first date on the same date in 2014… cute, right?!
This time I was honoured to photograph a truly beautiful wedding at one of my all time favourite wedding venues in Hampshire: The Elvetham, located between Fleet and Hartley Wintney. If you’ve been there before I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Those huge gardens and the main house with multiple gorgeous rooms full of character… without a doubt The Elvetham is the perfect wedding venue.
ROMANTIC ESCAPE DURING SUNSET TO A BEAUTIFUL FOREST NEAR MARLBOROUGH. Wilhelmina and Megan used to have walks together in Savernake Forest and the beginning of their relationship and they decided to choose that particular location for their engagement photos…
