Hi If you’re reading this it’s likely that you’re searching for a wedding photographer for your wedding day at The Gherkin ( great choice in venue by the way ).. needless to say I’m so glad you found me, if you have the time why not stay and take a look around at some of my work, you can visit my portfolio HERE, or even see some real weddings HERE I’m pretty confident you can find many reasons to choose us to photograph your wedding day at The Gherkin.
My name is David, I am an award winning destination wedding photographer who loves the fun, atmosphere and the all round celebration of weddings, I offer a unique contemporary way of photographing a wedding, I often appeal to the non-traditionalist, stylish yet contemporary couple. Based in Newcastle upon Tyne ,England, I capture weddings all across the UK, and around Europe and the globe.
I’m so very passionate about my work , I find inspiration in all places and love to use any available light to by advantage and use additional light for the more creative image. I have had the pleasure of photographing at the The Gherkin on a few occasions, the style and elegance lends itself to classic wedding photography.
I take pleasure in playing an integral role in two people joining in marriage but I’m a firm believer in the fact that a wedding is so much more than exchanging words and work to capture every emotion felt and each special moment, translating the true joy of the day through contemporary imagery.
Where ever you are in the world, I’d love to be part of it.. I look forward to hear from you.
30 St Mary Axe (known previously as the Swiss Re Building), informally known as The Gherkin, is a commercial skyscraper in London’s primary financial district, the City of London. It was completed in December 2003 and opened in April 2004. With 41 floors, it is 180 metres (591 ft) tall and stands on the former sites of the Baltic Exchange and Chamber of Shipping, which were extensively damaged in 1992 in the Baltic Exchange bombing by a device placed by the Provisional IRA in St Mary Axe, a narrow street leading north from Leadenhall Street.
After plans to build the 92-story Millennium Tower were dropped, 30 St Mary Axe was designed by Norman Foster and Arup Group. It was erected by Skanska; construction started in 2001.
The building has become a recognisable landmark of London, and it is one of the city’s most widely recognised examples of contemporary architecture.
