Russell Watson Wedding | Hello! Magazine

Celebrity Destination Wedding Photographer Feature.

Today is an exciting day in the Simpson household, I can officially call myself a “Celebrity Wedding photographer” as my recent photographic covarge of Russell Watson’s destination wedding has been published in HELLO! the international celebrity magazine. It’s a dream come true! I’ve always wanted to call myself a HELLO! magazine wedding photographer!

Last month I jetted out to Benhavis, Marbella in Spain to exclusively photograph the destination wedding of the UK’s biggest selling classical artist Russell ‘the voice’ Watson and his beautiful bride Louise Harris in what Hello! called a “Fairytail wedding album.”

In a world exclusive, HELLO! magazine features an impressive 11 page spread of photography by myself – Wes Simpson Weddings; The fearure artical reveals how the acclaimed singer Russell Watson and his bride held their wedding in the enchanting mountain village of Benahavís in Spain.

In a truly uplifting story that acompanies my pictures, Russell Watson, known as The People’s Tenor, describes seeing his bride for the first time as “a combination of love, happiness and pride.”

The exclusive article written by Pam Francis for HELLO! showcases the day perfectly with information on Louise’s wedding gown designed by Ronald Joyce, and the excitement of designer bespoke shoes from Jimmy Choo, together with descriptions of emotion that the day brought from sharing it with close family and friends.

To see my hard work printed in a national celebrity magazine such as Hello! is such a fantastic feeling, it’s like a footballer having the chance to play at Wembley. Add to that, the experience of working with one truly happy couple, the accolade of Hello! calling my work a “Fairy-tail wedding album” and spending a week in a beautiful glamours destination such as Marbella… well it dosen’t get much better than that.

Russell and Louise gave me so much trust and freedom in my approach to capturing their day, due to this I was able to produced a strong mix of classic and documentary style images with a logical narrative, photos that perfectly compliment the wedding day and showcase a mix of tender moments with a WOW factor.
