YVONNE & DARREN

After shooting their wedding portraits in London, we really thought we got to know what kind of person Darren was. During our trip, Darren was the epitome of calm – a level-headed, collected young man who didn’t really show too much emotion. However, on one of the biggest days of his life, it seems that even Darren let his emotions get the better of him – and we were honoured to be able to witness it. Our best memories of that day was Darren’s tears after he successfully battled his way to pick up his bride; his heartfelt promise in his vows during the wedding ceremony and the emotion behind his speech during the banquet. Coming from a man whom we had thought would be able to keep his composure, it was quite a surprise for us to be allowed to see this sentimental side of Darren and touched us deeply.

This wedding took place at the Ritz-Carlton – it’s pretty much a given that any event at the Ritz is a grand affair. It’s also somewhat of a moot point to state in this blog that the bride was beautiful. For some reason, all of the brides we have the privilege of shooting are always gorgeous. Yvonne is not an exception and her beauty was only enhanced by the fact that she became the calm and collected one in the face of Darren’s unexpected emotional outpour. It’s easy to see why Darren and Yvonne belong with each other – they’re unbelievably well matched.

The banquet in the evening also held a lot of good memories for us – what with Darren and his groomsmen serenading the bride; the bridesmaids wishing Yvonne and Darren the best in song and a bridal party determined to have fun. Our concept video and same day edit received such a good response and was such fun to make and – not to put too fine a point on it – only added to the euphoric atmosphere that night.

Cheers to the happy couple – we’ll treasure the memories of our time spent with you as we know you’ll treasure the wonderful memories of your big day.

Studio portrait

Weather conditions were cold outside but we were unaffected inside the studio. We spent a lot of time setting up lots of different types of lighting to create different moods for this particular shoot. It was both challenging and interesting to be given such a simple guideline and see how we came up with something new.

I’m quite proud of this set of portraits. It just goes to show that pre-wedding portraits can be shot inside and turn out really well.

TAMMY & BILLY / Fairy Tale Road, Germany & Paris

It’s hard to believe that we were only in Germany for a few days considering we visited so many different places and did so much in the short time we were there. Thanks to the excellent organisation skills of Billy and Tammy – we had our own personal chauffeur and our own personal tour guide – we experienced so much more than we could have imagined. Good company, delicious food, time to take in the sights – it was more like a holiday than work. We visited the big cities and the small villages and had such a fun time.

We were also lucky enough to spot not one, but two rainbows during our time there. It’s said that rainbows bring good luck to those who see them, so let’s hope that this good luck follows Billy and Tammy as they start their married life together.

Each time we go on a trip with our couples, we come away with wider horizons, amazing photos and new friends. Thanks so much to the happy couple for such a great experience – we’ll have to do it again sometime!
