The colours at this wedding were just gorgeous, so gorgeous I tended to keep more images in colour than black and white. The Drayton Hotel was a gorgeous location for the Bride and her bridal party to get ready. Especially in the room they were in, which consisted of a large searchlight lamp that had a gorgeous warm glow and an old fashioned round-edged bathtub complete with his and hers sinks in an alcove that was flooded with natural light. Along with the pink bridesmaid dresses and all the gorgeous details that went into this wedding, including personalized hangers, table details, flowers by firstname.lastname@example.org and confetti throwers – everywhere you looked was beautiful.
The ceremony was held in Ealing Abby, and all I can say is WOW! The massive high ceiling and long aisle were epic. I was able to stand at the front end of the aisle here, whereas normally the Priest prefers photographers to stay at the back. So being at the front was great. I got to capture the nervous and excited looks on the groom’s face, and see the faces of the Bride and her bridesmaids walking down the aisle towards him. It is such a special moment. From then on in the looks of love exchanged between the Bride and Groom were constant and beautiful. I absolutely loved capturing them.
This wedding was full of love and emotion, we stopped after the ceremony at a local park to get a few shots of the newlyweds together, and then moved onto trailfinders. We managed to get everyone together for a fabulous confetti shot and then moved through the evening into speeches and then dancing. The speeches were assisted by a slideshow that consisted of funny pictures of the groom along with some great stories! And as the band got going we had slideshow images of the happy couple together throughout their relationship. Beautiful little touches that just made the day extra special.
A truly beautiful day.
