Bright Lights, Big City
We’ve been to London many times to shoot pre-wedding portraits but with Clare & Thang the whole experience was something entirely different, as we were also there to photograph a traditional English wedding.
Thang and Clare have known each other for many years and it’s easy to see their connection and familiarity with each other. On the day of the wedding, Clare ran over an hour late for the ceremony, leading both Thang and the vicar to worry. However, as soon as Clare appeared in aisle, Thang couldn’t stop smiling and completely forgot Clare had been late.
We were very conscientious of the fact that there were many differences between a traditional English wedding and a traditional Chinese wedding. Everyone immersed themselves into every aspect of the day and made the day an extraordinary one. Even when throwing the bouquet, the bridesmaids and guests were very involved and it was evident that everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
A special thanks to Thang, a chef who has won awards in many competitions, for taking Susan and I to his restaurant and cooking a delicious meal for us.
