Swing dancing and art deco gorgeousness at The Amadeus Centre!
Deciding whether to photograph a siblings wedding is a tough one. It’s true that I can be so caught up in the creative process of the photography that I’m not truly in the moment with the proceedings and of course, me being me, I will always want to deliver a professional product so that’s what I’m thinking about. But then, could I ever sit back and watch another professional photographer do the job? Hell no!! So, I might as well do it!
Truth is, the day exuded so much energy and love, that I felt it. Regardless of how wrapped up I could get with the photography. It was unavoidable.
It’s an emotional one for me to write about. There were many reasons why this day was special. All I can say without starting to cry here at my computer in Costa is, I am so proud of my brother and the rest of my family. Damn it! I cried! (Breathe)
The proceedings started off at Camden Registry Office with a very excitable groom, making no efforts to hold back how much he loved his bride, Bea, and just how much he would adore her and cherish her forever. Oh, we all knew it. Absolutely every person in that room knew it. Even the registrar conducting the service was struggling to remain in control as she was blown away by this no holds barred public display of love and affection. Quite clearly, it’s not often she gets to see a love quite like this.
High from the buzz, we all moved onto The Amadeus in Little Venice via a Routemaster Bus where the silliness, love and laughter ensued.
I have to say an absolutely MASSIVE thank you to my second shooter, Bea Piekarska of Photography by Bea. I don’t normally rely so heavily on my second shooters but on a day like this day, where I was so emotionally invested, she was invaluable.
Love and happiness,
