Rewind to August 2016... A beautiful, warm summer evening and a near treacherous walk to Les Bouviers, the reception venue for Chris and Debbie, the bride and groom-to-be. I couldn't have been happier to finally reach my destination, and a warm and welcoming couple.
We sat and had a drink, chatted about a lot of things that weren't necessarily wedding related, and got onto the subject of architecture - I knew it was a good match!
Fast forward to 3rd June 2017 and the big day had arrived.
The sun was shining, the guests were arriving, Chris was nervous (like really nervous!!) and everything was falling into place nicely. A beautiful church ceremony later and we have a very happy newlywed couple.
This was the first time I have worked alongside videographers, which was great for me, as my style isn't based around formal group shots, posed and staged beyond belief, so while they organised their shots, I snuck in and stole some great candids, so thanks boys!
I loved all the little finishing touches to the venue as details are my thing; the sweet table with its very own ferris wheel; the popcorn machine (YUM!!) and of course the cake, wow, what a cake! Elegant and minimal, and the smell of the white chocolate was to die for. The best part of the day for me was being able to talk to so many of Chris and Debbie's family and friends. A lot of the time, because of my documentary approach, few people feel like they can talk to me - they very often say they didn't want to disturb me - but honestly, come and disturb me, I love a good chin wag (any excuse for a break, ha ha!).
Hands down, this wedding featured the funniest best-man speech I've heard. I was laughing so much I almost forgot to take photos of it, so future couples, they better be good!
The evening wore on and everyone hit the dance floor, all to be shown up by a little dude named George. Time to call it quits then I guess.
Until next time,
