At the end of July Helena and I sped down the M1 for the much anticipated wedding of Alex and Joe; this wedding had been on my radar for months, needless to say – it did not disappoint; I’ve known Alex through her family for many years, sometimes she used to wait outside reception class with all the Mums to pick up her little sister! I was delighted when she asked me to shoot her and Joe’s wedding. So much thought and planning had gone into their wedding day and it showed. Alexandra and Joe combined their considerable skills with those of Hannah from All Things Borrowed to produce one of the most eclectic yet fabulous marquee interiors I have ever seen. It gave off such a relaxed vibe which was what Alex and Joe had wanted …a party atmosphere in which to celebrate their 10 years together.
For me, the visual highlight was the interior of the little church, with it’s ancient soft pink murals on the walls; it almost felt as though we were inside a rural Tuscan church as opposed to one in the Cotswolds. Seeing emotions being expressed is beautiful and in the end all a photographer can do is capture, to the very best of their ability, what is happening around them, so from the antics of Joe’s Groomsmen, to the dignified and moving service, through to the tears and laughter during the speeches, it was an absolute pleasure to capture it all.
