Jon & Allesandro ~ My 1st Civil Wedding
It’s my great pleasure to share with you the wedding of the ever so nice Jon and Alessandro. When Jon first got in touch through my old student friend, Sophia Brandner, about me shooting their big day, we clicked instantly on my first day, and I knew from the outset this would be one of my favourite weddings of the year.
It was a short but very sweet day for me – Jon and Alessandro didn’t want the whole day covering, just 3 hours to cover a little pre-ceremony get-together with their parents, the ceremony itself at the wonderful Camden Town Hall in St.Pancras, their couple shots and a few at the reception in the bar at Soho. They allowed me plenty of time for their couple shots so we were able to pop in the tube and head to the infamous Soho as well as taking some in the Town Hall, which was great, St.Pancras is such a great location and the proper old heart of London.
It was a beautiful day – the way these guys look at each other is what true romance is made of, and the love for them amongst their family and friends was so visible and overwhelming. Their friends was ever so nice even though I am deaf and understand them well and some of the time I had to poke Sophia to interpret them for me!
On a personal note, this was a particularly special day for me as it was the first civil partnership I’ve photographed, and I truly couldn’t have wished to share it with a lovelier couple than Jon and Alessandro. They were so much fun to spend time with, so completely in love with each other and I felt so proud and privileged to be able to share their amazing wedding day with them. Thanks so much Jon and Alessandro for having me with you and for making my job so easy that day… I enjoyed every minute.
