Rik Pennington Meet The Wedding Suppliers

Meet Wedding Photographer – Rik Pennington

In this episode of Meet The Wedding Suppliers we chat with Rik Pennington, a London based wedding photographer who travels all around the world shooting weddings.

With a background in graphic design, Rik tells us how this has influenced his image style and composition, and how he prioritises clean and simple images that tell stories for the couples he works with.  

Rik and I start by discussing the importance of wedding planning and how suppliers work with couples to create a plan for the wedding day. Rik discusses a brilliant wedding we shot together on a stunning island venue called Osea Island. Osea is an exclusive luxury island Wedding resort, but whilst the venue is stunning, the island location demands thorough planning by those organising the wedding. Logistics are an important consideration when planning a wedding and Rik discusses how wedding planning with his couples is one of the most important aspects of planning ahead of the wedding. 

Here is a film from the Wedding Rik and I shot together on Osea Island. Taken from philipsmithvisuals.co.uk.

Rik began his career as a graphic designer before moving into garden photography. As is often the case, his first wedding was for a friend but it was Rik’s research into wedding photography in the lead up to his first shoot that opened his eyes to credible wedding photography. 

Rik shoots many weddings each year in France and we discuss the difference between a London city wedding and a wedding in a French vineyard during this episode and we reflect back on a London wedding Rik and I both worked at where Rik shot this stunning image –
