The Amadeus Wedding Photography – despite actually technically being a London wedding photographer, most weekends I find myself heading down the A3 to photograph weddings in Surrey and Sussex. So, it was a joy to be asked to be Hannah and Sean’s wedding photographer for their relaxed London wedding! From all our meetings and discussions, I knew this was going to be a lovely wedding. Hannah and Sean really wanted to maintain a laid back, relaxed atmosphere and they totally managed that. I absolutely loved Hannah’s elegant, stylish ankle length wedding dress (which had pockets – everyone loves a wedding dress with pockets!). The look on Sean’s face as she entered the ceremony (at the stunning Islington Town Hall) was brilliant – his jaw literally dropped. The ceremony was great – with the highlight (of course) being a mexican wave! I’ve been to over 200 weddings and I’ve never seen a mexican wave at one before!
After the ceremony the guests jumped on a big red London bus back to the reception venue, The Amadeus (a beautiful twinkly converted church near Warwick Avenue). It was a new wedding venue for me and I loved it – perfect for the intimate, relaxed London wedding Hannah and Sean were after. Whilst the guests were making their way to the Amadeus we jumped in a cab to take a few photographs near the canal and on a VERY pretty mews street just across the road from the venue. As part of their relaxed approach Hannah and Sean didn’t want formal ‘group’ photographs, so we then joined their wedding reception (just as the passengers were getting off the bus – I work quickly!) with plenty of time for them to enjoy their wedding day their guests. There was a lot of laughter, great food and lively dancing – just what you need in a perfect wedding!
Hannah sent me an email a few days ago which I love (and nice to know that even people who dread posing for photos can have a good time during a photo session!): “We were delighted to have chosen you to photograph the wedding. We tried really hard to keep a relaxed approach to the wedding and you slotted straight into that, which is much appreciated. I have to say that I was dreading the small amount of time we allotted you to take photos of me and Sean, but it was one of my favourite parts of the whole day. It was pretty much the only time Sean and I spent together, and you made it really fun. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you!”
Congratulations on your brilliant wedding guys!
