[I] really love it when I am asked to photograph a wedding in London. London wedding photography always feels so edgy and interesting, and you can always find amazing urban backdrops for the portraits. This wedding, while short and sweet, is one of my absolute favourites because it was such a great opportunity to be creative with my photography.
On the 21st June 2016, I arrived at Islington Town Hall to photograph the wedding of Chloë and Amanda. What a fabulous afternoon it was! Chloë and Amanda had decided that they wanted a private wedding with just the two of them, so with only Chloë’s neighbour there to witness (and me doubling up as second witness and photographer!) they did just that.
It was just as romantic as it sounds.
We all sat in the beautiful entrance hall together nervously waiting to be called in. When it was our turn we walked up that stunning staircase, down a pretty hallway and into the ceremony room. Surrounded by famous paintings of love, including Gustav Klimt’s The Kiss, Chloe and Amanda said their vows.
After the wedding we all went for a walk around Islington to get some couple portraits of the newly weds (stopping half-way round for a bottle of prosecco and some strawberry tequila shots, of course!). The girls were both up for trying different creative photos, and clearly had an idea of what they wanted from their photography. This was really inspiring in itself, and pushed me to find more creative locations, angles and posing ideas. It was so much fun and I’m really pleased with the final pictures.
