Sara and Andy’s cool London Wedding
When the dancing started at Sara and Andy’s wedding, Pete (my Fiancee and assistant for the day) said “I like to imagine this is what our wedding will be like”. When I asked him what he meant specifically, he said “well it’s just a really great bunch of people, all having a really good time”.
That pretty much sums up Sara and Andy’s wedding for me: a really great bunch of people having a good time.
Sara and Andy booked me a week before their wedding so there was no time to get to know them through a pre wedding photo shoot or consultation meeting. In fact I didn’t have much of an idea what to expect on the day but what I found was utterly brilliant.
They were married at Camden Town Hall and then we headed over to the British Library for a few pictures of the two of them together.
I love architecture and I’m always really excited by the prospect of involving architectural details in my shoots, so the chance to do some wedding portraits with such a cool couple, on the stairs inside the British Library, was wonderful.
Later in the evening they had a party – an informal buffet, followed by drinks and dancing at Jacksons Lane a former church in Highgate that’s now an arts space.
I love lots of different types of weddings for lots of different reasons. Sometimes it’s a connection with the couple, sometimes it’s the couples back story and what they’ve been through to get to their wedding day, sometimes it’s all of the thought and attention that’s put into the details of the day.
And some times there’s just a vibe that I can’t put my finger on. Well Andy and Sara’s wedding had that vibe in abundance. Their wedding was about Sara, Andy and a big party with their friends and family. In fact the party was so much fun that we didn’t really want to leave.
Congratulations Andy and Sara. It was an absolute pleasure to be your wedding photographer.
