Meet Colleen and Daniel, a couple of freelance creatives. They got married on the 29th of August 2014, and it was I who was the fortunate one to be shooting their beautiful wedding!
We had met earlier in the year at a wedding fair, and a month or so later I was booked for the big day, and a big day it was!! We met up prior to their wedding for their "Love Story" shoot which took place at the Beautiful Boston Manor House in west London, to be fair I didn't know this place existed until that day, a quick location scout on google maps located this underestimated location, and unearthed a real gem that I will now use again and again. We were fortunate to be able to use the inside of this splendid manor, please check out Colleen and Daniel's love story here before you continue!
The 29th of August quickly arrived, it had been a very busy month, but I was very much looking forward to this Wedding. It was a crisp morning, but the sun was shining and we were in for a beautiful day, I was cool, calm and relaxed and enjoyed a leisurely breakfast as bridal preparation was only 10mins away (A beautiful thing!). Bridal Preps took place at The Double Tree By Hilton, with a large window in the room and the light falling the right way I had plenty of time to capture the beautiful shots needed to begin the story of this wedding day.
After the dress was put on, I headed to the ceremony location, The Ealing Christian Centre, perhaps rather deceiving on the outside, but inside is a beautiful old theatre, with access to two levels. A live band playing and the Christian ceremony was brilliant, emotional and full of love!
We then headed to Boston Manor Park to shoot the bridal party and the Bride and Groom portraits. When we arrived we caught a little bit of rain, but that was more a blessing than anything else. We hid under the ancient Cedar tree, and to my amazement we found some beautiful portrait light and the most stunning textures. Once the rain subsided we moved around to the manor house where the red bricks and quiet space gave us time to create more stunning portraits.
From here we headed back to The Hilton Double Tree for Colleen and Daniel's Beautiful reception party. Thank you Colleen and Daniel for having me document you wedding day, it was truly beautiful.
