I first met Nick and Lindsay at a wedding fair at Burhill Golf Club in Walton-on-Thames, where I’m a preferred supplier. They didn’t go on to book the venue for their special day, as they were after something a little different that reflected who they are as a couple.
Thankfully though they chose me as their wedding photographer and I’m so glad that they did – as they are one of the loveliest couples I’ve worked with so far.
We’d already completed their engagement photoshoot in December at Kew Gardens, and their venues for their wedding were equally beautiful (more on those in a bit).
The sun shone when I met Nick and the boys at their home in Kingston for some groom preparations images. We had lots of fun dodging both the shadows from the sun and the cars trying to get down their road. Well, at least all of their neighbours now know they were getting married! I then headed off to Kew Gardens Hotel, where Lindsay and her bridesmaids were getting ready.
Their ceremony took place at The Orleans House Gallery nestled next to The Thames in Twickenham. It is simply beautiful with its high ceilings, intricate coving and stunning full length windows.
Their guests then travelled by boat along The Thames to the London Water and Steam Museum in Kew. What an amazing venue for a wedding! It was so unique and really reflected Nick and Lindsay’s appreciation of things that are quirky and different.
The theme was a mix of Art Deco with a nod to Nick’s love for all things Star Wars.
I should also mention that Lindsay is super talented and made the bouquets and a lot of the details herself. The planning was impeccable and the whole day was beautiful from start to finish. Congratulations both – I’m so glad that you love your photographs… x
