Kirsty and Guy

Kirsty and Guy are a couple who got the heart of their day just right. Family, being together, familiar haunts and good food was the essence of the day. It was full of warmth and super relaxed. Kirsty and Guy live opposite Clapham Common which has the vibe of a village in a city. They love it so much they wanted their portraits in all their favourite places on their high street. We all hopped onto red buses to zip us over to the Garden Museum for more feasting in the heart of London, just across the waters from Big Ben.

Nadia and Jack

Nadia and Jack know how to host a party. With long informal tables for their reception, the atmosphere and connection between the guests was palpable. When the backdrop to a wedding is the Painting Gallery in Greenwich, words should just be quiet and slip out the back door....

Rehnuma and Faraaz

This was an emotionally charged day.  In our couple's culture, tradition has it that the bride shows deep mourning at leaving her parent's household.

But this goes beyond showing tradition, the connection between Rehnuma and her mother was authentic and deeply touching. In between the tears though there was jocular festivity, with the groom parading in his car and having to push, shove and barter his way past a roped barrier and the gaggle of relatives to get to his awaiting bride.

I loved the day with its moments of quiet and reflection and the noise of joyful bravado.

 

Joanne and Weng-Chin

Joanne and Weng-Chin are a super sweet couple from Malaysia who were quick to burst in hearty laughter. They had their wedding at Holme Pierre Pont in Nottingham with friends and family from near and afar.
