Weddings

Wedding photography

When two people meet and much time passes, the arrival of their big day, the day they both dreamed of, the day they both longed for and needed it can its highly charged, meaninful, and special.  This was one such day, Sophie and Sam were married at Datchworth Church, and had their reception at Coltsfoot retreat. They are two of the lovliest people, who just were meant to be a part of each others lives. I was truly touched by being the one to photograph their big day. In the lead up, Sophie shared secrets with me, and things they had planned. Sophies identical twin daughters looked adorable, and were just so excited that this day had come. I loved it, and feel like I was not just a photographer on this day. I feel like Ive made two new friends and that feels nice. Have a look at their lovely day...the day of their dreams.

I love photographing love and all that encompasses it. So to be asked to photograph this very special moment, by someone who clearly planned and wanted to make a special moment very memorable was an honour. We exchanged emails and the details and timings of this event were shared with me. Kyoto park is a pretty (and busy) little Japenese garden in Holland Park London. Full of peacocks, squirrels and lots of vibrant plants.  It was essential that I go un-noticed, this was a challenge, I picked a position and read a paper, whilst prentending to be interested in the other things happening in the park, not the real reason I had been booked to be there!  The photos were a big surprise, and Jess did not twig that Raj had arranged for me to be there. After she said YES!! I watched them take iphone photos of each other and offered to take their snap and email to them. (the last few photos on this blog post) Raj and Jess, I wish you both every happiness.

Vicky and Bob are such an amazing couple, they have an incredible talented group of family and friends who helped make this day fantastic. The AMAZING tents and the woodland bar and hippy shack were all made or supplied by people who shared their wedding day. So so many flowers tied around the tree in garlands and lining the way to the big 200 year oak underneath which Vicky and Bob exchanged their vows. Their friend Rob was a fantastic celebrant, who spoke eloquently and with real feelng and meaning and certainly looked the part too. Lovely, lovely people. It was a pleasure to meet everyone and share this superb day. Vicky wore a beautiful vintage dress and cape with garden floral crown and bouquet. The lights under the tree were amazing when darkness fell, it was truly a magical day. So take a peek at the day they dreamed of the love that helped pull it all together and the fun they had.
