Favourite wedding details and how you came up with them?
Since Vicky’s family is South American, our wedding was a big mix of cultures which was fun to plan and everyone enjoyed it! Our entrance song to the reception hall was South American which got everyone off their chairs, clapping and dancing with us! Another special part was ‘hora loca’ (translated to crazy hour in Spanish). During the band’s break, we got out fancy dress hats and sunglasses and passed them around for all the guests to wear! We all danced to fun South American music and danced in a conga line around the room! Everyone loved it and it got everyone up and dancing. A few of our friends even said they wanted to do that at their wedding!
Why choose your venue?
We came across the venue when looking at wedding photography blogs online. We loved the look of it and were excited it had enough capacity for all our guests. We were also happy to have all the venues located in the same place so no transport was needed.
Why did you choose your dress and what did you love about it?
I wanted a simple, elegant and classic wedding dress. I was in NYC for my cousin’s wedding, so decided to use that time to go with my Matron of Honour and one of my close friends to try on dresses. I tried on loads but wasn’t too happy with them. Then finally the guys at the shop found the LAST dress left in stock which ended up being ‘the one’. It fit perfectly and it was just what I had been looking for! I ended up taking it with me back to London and only had slight alterations. My mom then helped me accessorise it to make it look even more special.
What did you want from your wedding photography?
A mixture of relaxed and non-posed shots that were natural and captured the day as it happened. You were very relaxed and friendly. We had a great time during the engagement shoot which helped us get to know you and your style, so we were much more at ease during the wedding day. You got amazing shots of us and our family/friends! We couldn’t believe how beautiful the photos turned out and are so happy with how you captured our wedding day. Everyone in the photos looks natural and relaxed and that shows a lot about the type of photographer you are and how comfortable people feel around you. The colours in the photos show up beautifully and everyone looks amazing.
Finally, what are you most looking forward to as a married couple?
Enjoying our new home and new life together without all the planning and chaos that we’ve had the last few months!
