Flashback to a couple of months ago – it’s a glorious summer’s day and I’m about to start second shooting for the mega talented Lisa Devlin (Lisa probably doesn’t need any introduction to anyone who knows even a little weeny bit about wedding photography in the UK! If you’re in any doubt, she’s currently the BJP’s wedding photographer of the year, and to say I jumped at the chance to work with her is a bit of an understatement).
While Lisa is on the other side of London photographing Caroline’s bridal prep, I’m in North London to get some shots on Lewis’ side. The flat is absolutely lovely and totally my cup of tea – muted greys and graphical patterns everywhere – and I know it’s going to be a good day for snapping away.
The ceremony is at, funnily enough, Burgh House in Hampstead- a venue I was to shoot in again a few weeks later. Guests are treated to one of the cutest Programme of Events I’ve ever seen.
It’s not long before Caroline arrives and she looks absolutely amazing in a dress she’s designed herself and a flower headpiece she made herself…that morning!
Guests are whisked away for the evening’s festivities by an old skool Routemaster bus…
and soon the party begins at 6 St Chad’s Place in King’s Cross. The bar is gorgeously decorated with loads of little homemade touches – at the end of the evening I’m trying to convince Caroline that she has a future in wedding styling! Oh, and did someone say an OREO WEDDING CAKE?!
Big congratulations to Caroline & Lewis and thank you so much to you guys and Lisa for having me along on the day. I really loved every minute of it, it was such a dream to photograph and I wish you guys all the happiness in the world.
