I’m so excited to share this wedding.
Above is a slideshow of all the images, set to one of my favourite songs that I instantly thought of whilst editing these images.
If you’re not a Darlene Love fan (shame on you), you can view the images the old fashioned way below.
As you’ve probably noticed, I found it very difficult to narrow down my favourites for this post. There were just too many images that I loved and had to share.
Firstly, MC Motors has to go down as the coolest venue in London. Not only are Joyce and Jackie fabulous to work with, but the decor and props littered around the place are to die for. What girl doesn’t go weak at the knees for a mural of Clark Gable or Warren Beatty. There was a relaxed film theme to the proceedings, from the titles on the board outside through to the cinema tickets that took you to your seat. Richard and Sonali had even had one printed for me, and as a film nut I found this a little too overwhelming..
As dedicated vegetarians, Richard and Sonali did away with traditional wedding cuisine and guests enjoyed sumptuous platters of Gujarati food. It was incredible, and as a carnivore myself, I didn’t even notice the lack of a chicken breast or fillet of salmon. Delicious.
Music was brilliantly thought out, with The Basin Street Brawlers creating the perfect atmosphere during the drinks reception, before Wedding Smashers started the evening dancing with a medley of ’50s/’60s hits. Always my favourite wedding DJs, they didn’t disappoint.
A huge thank you goes to Sonali and Richard, not only for booking me in the first place, but for having total confidence in my ability to capture their celebration whilst seven months pregnant. To you both, a heartfelt thank you for giving me the creative freedom to photograph your wedding as I saw it. I hope you love the pictures as much as I do, and that they bring back many happy memories of such a beautiful day.
To guests ~ full image gallery coming soon.
