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.
