Olympus Wedding Experience at The Savoy London


At the beginning of November I was delighted to be involved in a wonderful event put together by Olympus UK. They had asked John Nassari, an excellent photographer and PR stablemate of mine at Propose PR, to be an Olympus Ambassador

Along with John, a group of other talented photographers and bloggers were invited to take part in the Olympus Wedding Experience at The Savoy. The beautiful River Room was dressed as a wedding reception, with sumptuous tables full of linen, glassware, china and candles. We were delighted to be involved and created a floral centre piece for the team to photograph

The professionals were able to try out Olympus’ new flagship camera, the OM-D E-M1 and the bloggers were let loose with the Olympus Pen Lite E-PL7

The photos from the day have started to appear on several blogs (So Your Getting Married for a start) and I found it really fascinating to see the differences between the photographers’ varying styles and it made me realise just how difficult it must be for couples choosing their wedding photographer. So I thought it might be useful to show here a few shots of the same subject, taken by different photographers with their own unique take but all with the same uniting camera … let me know what you think

First up is Kate Nielen. Kate is a fabulous fine art photographer specialising in weddings and portraiture but she also does a stunning job with bumps and babies, making me wish I had little ones again for her to capture. Kate has a very soft touch and captured the table, flowers and happy couple beautifully


Okay, better late than never … next up on this Olympus Wedding Experience round up is Laura Babb. Another very talented and well respected photographer based in London but travelling to cover weddings and events all over the world – I’ve been lucky enough to work with her several times and can report amazing work!
