These two lovely people are getting married in just under two weeks and I can’t wait for their wedding.
When we were scheduling this engagement shoot, Richard mentioned that Paraskevi’s favourite animal is the goose, and that it would be amazing if we could find a place that had maybe a pond with geese.
We did find it and it was probably one of the best parks I’ve ever went to shoot, I might have liked even a bit more than Holland Park, if anything because it’s a lot bigger and it’s got a number of different buildings and it’s hardly crowded.
It is lovely and quiet, which helped them both relaxing, Rich was also great at making his other half laugh and feel comfortable, and the whole shoot ended up being absolutely adorable from start to finish.

So much we nearly forgot about the geese!

Oh my, where to start with this?
Charlotte and Billy’s wedding day was a very last minute one for me. I spoke for the first time time with Charlotte only a week before the day, and thinking back now I feel so extremely lucky.
This was a wedding unlike any other I’ve ever seen, because of the extent  Charlotte and Billy went to to make sure that all the children (there were many!) had an amazing time just as much as -if not more than- the adults.
You’ll see what I mean when you get to the reception, the details are impressive. There were so many ideas to entertain the children that I really felt like *I* should have been one too!
Two full tables were arranged for kids, there were all sort of toys, sweets, inflatable guitars, masks, and a bouncing castle that the ladies tried to hijack for a funny shot (it didn’t go down as well as we expected, but it was somehow even better).
Charlotte and Billy themselves have two gorgeous little boys who were part of the day no less than Charlotte and Billy themselves, and who could not help but being there, playing and adorably teasing, even in that brief time Charlotte and I managed to search for the super-camera-shy Billy and have them spend a few minutes alone.

It was an amazing day, I believe karma will kick me hard at some point this year to compensate for the luck I’ve had in having this wedding dropping in my inbox with such short notice.

Enjoy.

    Fiona Campbell - Love it! I think the decision on whether you have children at a wedding should be based on whether or not you like the children in question. These ones look lovely!ReplyCancel

Rachel and Dan recently got engaged and are now finalising their plans for a massive move-out (from one continet to another kind of move out!) so they took the chance of their engagement to c elebrate a new start and to say goodbye to all their friends and family in one classy send-off bup party. It was amazing seeing all of their friends and family spreading the love. The tiny Jerusalem Tavern was decorated with flowers and postcards for the occasion, which complimented very well the old-fashioned look of its wooden décor.

I wish Rachel & Dan all the best for their big move and I hope the future has amazing stuff in store for them. What a lucky and brave pair they are ♥
