Thank you again for your absolutely beautiful photos, we are so lucky to have found such a delightful and talented photographer to capture all of those lovely moments from our special day. We were so nervous about it, but our favourite part of the day was the ceremony at the Asylum, as it was so atmospheric and magical and your photos have just captured that so perfectly. It is so lovely to see everyone looking so happy, and you have managed to get such lovely shots of all the children, which we know is not an easy task!
It feels like a lifetime ago already, but each time we look at the pictures it all comes flooding back - and I still shed a tear every time I watch the lovely slideshow. The pictures are absolutely everything we hoped for and more, and we can't wait for the next opportunity to book you for another session!
These two - or should I say three - are such wonderful, kind, sensitive souls, I adored them from the moment we met on their Love Shoot at Greenwich Park, with their beautiful son Felix.
Luke and Lydia wanted to create a beautifully, intimate, family friendly day for their wedding - and they pulled it off completely. They got married at the stunningly evocative setting of the Asylum Chapel at Caroline Gardens in Peckham and then went onto the East Dulwich Tavern in East Dulwich. I love this area so much and it felt so good to be working in the place I used to called home - albeit 10 years ago!
The Asylum is beyond stunning. It has the most incredible light and muted blue grey colour palette. The light bounces around the walls and creates beautiful pockets of light - it's sublime.
After chilling out at The Asylum after the ceremony for an an hour or so, we moved on to one of my favourites pubs in London - the East Dulwich Tavern or EDT as it's affectionately known.. Luke and and Lydia had free run of the upstairs at the pub and used half of it as a creche and soft play area for all the children. One of the hardest things about weddings is keeping children entertained and they did it brilliantly - safe, in view of the adults and lots of fun toys to keep then happy.
Luke and Lydia asked guests to bring along cakes and desserts for the pudding offering and kindly asked three of the older children to judge their Bake Off inspired contest. And it remains one of my very favourites moments ever. The children were brilliant, they were so wonderful to watch - demanding, critical and so very knowledgeable... I'm not sure I would want my cakes judged by them! ;-)
I left after a few couple portraits and group shots with family and friends outside the pub next to the now famous street wall art by Conor Harrington and I grinned like a Cheshire Cat all the way home!
