Introduce yourself…

Hi I’m Lex from Fleming Photo and I’ve never seen Lion King! Oh…and I’m a wedding photographer of an age that I definitely should have seen Lion King! Living in South London, I specialise in non-traditional, relaxed weddings mostly in London. 

What are a few of your favourite things? 

I love Wes Anderson films, Bill Murray quotes and hanging out with my miserable looking dog called Wednesday. Once you see her you’ll realise why she’s called Wednesday!

Tell us about where the magic happens – where’s your HQ?

So I’m born and bred in South London and then I recently made the move to the beautiful little fishing town called Leigh on Sea in Essex. But I still have a base in South London and split my time between the two

How and why did you start up your business?

So I’ve been a photographer since the age of 16! I worked mostly as a music photographer until around 10 years ago when I then got into fashion and portraiture. I kept being asked if I’d shoot friends’ weddings and finally in 2014 I did and never looked back! Once I realised that not all weddings have chair covers, the world of alternative weddings opened up to me and I adore my job now

What do you love most about your job?

I’m colour loving Wedding Photographer based in Hampshire who gets to shoot kick-ass love stories all over the UK and beyond AND It’s an absolute freaking dream come true. There’s nothing better than rocking up at an awesome wedding, capturing the joy, the love and the laughter of you and your amazing guests, then getting to work my technicolour editing magic on each individual photograph. 

I know your wedding will be one of the most magical days of your lives SO FAR, the party that sends you off into your biggest adventure together.

I am a firm believer that you should throw two fingers up at wedding traditions and create the a day that’s as unique as you are!!! I am definitely not your average wedding photographer – I’m a bit of a modern day hippie, a free spirit and a total nature lover. Eccentric people and excessive details are my thing, but what I love most in the world is… LOVE!

How adding embellishment can make your wedding outfit completely unique

Jan Knibbs at Atelier 19 Cheltenham…

“Your wedding day is the one day in your life when you can be completely unique and indulge your little idiosyncrasies. You may be having a themed wedding or you may just have a strong idea of what you want to wear but be struggling to find it. 

I specialise in couture embroidery and embellishment and won the Embroidery category in the British Bridal Awards. I create bespoke dresses with the emphasis on embroidery which are a bit quirky and individual at my little atelier in Cheltenham (Atelier 19) but obviously that comes at a price. A more economical possibility is to find a dress that you love the shape of either old or new and add some embellishment. As I use some of the same embroidery techniques as the top couture houses you can look like you’ve stepped off the page of Vogue at a fraction of the cost.

If you have ordered a dress online and on arrival you find it rather plain and not quite right, it can be embellished and added to to make it more ‘you’. Suzanne, whose wedding was featured here, had already bought a dress but when it arrived it was too short and to be honest a bit ordinary. Suzanne came to me not really knowing what she
