Sheryll & Isaac - Eltham Palace, South London

August was a very busy month for me, Filled with great weddings, weather and awesome projects. 

Meet Sheryll and Isaac,

Sheryll is an educational speaker and Isaac an accountant. They got married on the 2nd of August 2014 in a beautiful ceremony at St Faiths Church in south east London. I was shooting this wedding in Conjunction with Diamond Studios, a brilliant video production team from south London. 

I started with the groom preparations at the Novotel in Canary wharf. It was a great way to start the day, the boys were full of life, and ready to see their man Isaac marry the beautiful Sheryll. With a steaming iron, blue lines and some awesome video light, I captured a great start to this wedding day. We then headed to Sheryll's home for bridal preparations, when we arrived the house was quiet, Sheryll was upstairs getting ready for her make up artist to arrive, some peace and quiet before the day begins. The house soon started to fill, the makeup artist arrived and slowly the bridesmaids turned up, the house soon turned to organised chaos. Sheryll was arriving to the ceremony in a classic Rolls Royce, which soon arrived, but as they say, "good things take time". 

The beautiful wedding ceremony took place in St Faiths Church in south east London, a striking little church with a friendly priest allowing free roam around the church. It was a touching ceremony, finished with the most elegant first kiss I have witnessed. 

We then headed to the exquisite Eltham palace, childhood home of Henry VIII, now a 1930s art deco masterpiece. I had never been here before and I was in for a treat! Entering through stunning entrance I found numerous locations to use later in the day. Rounding the corner into the great medieval banquet hall I knew I was in for a great reception! My jaw dropped and I needed a moment to gather myself. Beautifully decorated and ready for a fantastic reception. Before this we ventured the grounds for a portrait session, I had spotted a weeping willow tree over the moat as I crossed the bridge to enter the grounds. I knew then this was where we would do a portrait session. So happy we found our way there as it certainly paid off! 

Congratulations Sheryll and Isaac, it was such an amazing wedding. I wish you all the best for you married life.

I always start the day with the ring shot, it is my way of getting the creativity going. I love the blue line leading down this image.

The boys, what a way to start the day, this was such good fun! The movie star looks, mopping the foreheads, and the steaming cufflinks, couldn't have asked for a better start to the day!

Arriving in style, a stunning Rolls Royce Phantom was the choice for the bride and mother.

I met Isaac at the aisle, he seemed cool, calm and collected. Until the music sounds for the bride to enter. A rush of nerves, anticipation and happiness rolled across his face and captured in one frame (Middle right)

Portrait session number one, the willow tree. Such stunning ground to work around. I always wish i had more time. But thats part of the skill, is to be able to choose locations and be definitive in what you want to create, direct and achieve the images in your mind with precision and as little fuss within minimal time, I'm still learning, but am certainly getting there!
