On Sunday Jodie & Will got married and I got my first experience of a Kew Gardens Wedding . It was awesome. We really do have to pinch ourselves at how incredible this job that we do is a lot of the time, we get to create beautiful photographs that will stay in the couples family for generations to come but at it’s most basic, right there and then on the day, we get to hang out with some of the happiest, most smiley, loveable people you could ever want to spend time with.
Jodie began the day getting ready with her bridesmaids and her Mum at the Petersham hotel near Richmond which in itself is absolutely jaw dropping. As you can see, Jodie looked gorgeous. It’s fantastic to photograph anyone who just can’t stop smiling and I honestly don’t think she stopped beaming all day long. A Kew Gardens Wedding is an amazing thing. From the Nash Conservatory where the ceremony was held, through the acres and acres of gardens which are just picking up the colours of Autumn, to the Orangery for the evening reception it really takes your breath away at every turn.
For me the best part of Jewish wedding ceremonies is the dancing afterwards. It’s bonkers. Elbows fly, toes get stamped on, chair legs graze your face in the mayhem and it’s completely brilliant. This is just a taster for them as they head off on honeymoon and there will be so so SO much more to come later this year.
Special thanks go to Matt Tyler for helping Hannah and I out on this one, awesome as always buddy!
