Let’s Chat

Shhhhhh, it's a secret

My wonderful wedding journey with these two lads started off as a secret! And boy, don’t I like being part of a secret!

Adam and Ian have some amazing friends but none more so than Simon. When he found out that the couple weren’t able to include a photographer into their wedding budget, he stepped in. Simon had his own wedding not so long ago and realised the huge importance of having lasting memories of the big day. So we chatted about the options and then he booked me up and dropped them the wonderful news the following week.

Baring in mind I had not met this couple before the wedding, you’d never have known. They were instantly like ‘old’ friends. Testament to my ability to talk about anything to anyone and their ability to be bloody awesome!

Adam and Ian chose to say ‘I do’ to each other at Bromley Register Office, in the Old Palace, a stunning Georgian building built back in 1775. It was an intimate ceremony with a beautiful reading and some lovely moments of humour. The boys were walked down the aisle by their mums who were beaming with pride… a really touching moment.

Confetti and celebrations

After the group shots took place inside due to some drizzle, the weather started behaving and gave us an opportunity to pop outside for some couple shots. Adam and Ian were a joy to capture. So clearly in love and both sharing an awesome sense of fun. Adam looked dashing in his blue suit and Ian donned a kilt to show off his pins! Picture perfect!

The wedding reception was held in The Great Hall within the same grounds of the ceremony. So it was just a short walk (covered in confetti of course!) to get the party started.

The afternoon was full of hugs and smiles. My face hurt from all the laughing and joy I had with this bunch. A real warming feeling and sense of pride filled that room.

Dinner was a scrumptious roast (which I tucked into as well, joining on to a table of hilarious colleagues of the couple… love a bit of banter!)

Then it was time to get down and boogie. Under a stunning canopy of lanterns and foil tassels by Fleur de Lace, Adam and Ian had their first dance. Half way through, they were joined by their mums… another awwwwwwwww moment.

Then the floor filled with hot moves, loud singing and loads of glow sticks! What an amazing atmosphere to end the day on.
