I love Mark and Gemma’s London wedding, such a relaxed and enjoyable day.
What makes this sort of day particularly fun, for me at least, is that it’s all on foot which forces me to travel light. Just the two small Fuji cameras together with two small primes lenses, that’s it. No huge flashguns or cumbersome kitbags, just a simple but very effective approach. What’s more, I looked more like a guest than a photographer, this meant I was able to get even closer to the action.
I met with Mark outside Thirst cafe before going to Dean Street Townhouse for Gemma’s bridal preparations – Dean Street is a boutique hotel in Soho which comprises of two large (and stunning) Georgian townhouses.
Gemma and Mark’s humanist ceremony took place at The University Women’s Club in Audley Square – another spectacular venue but one that is also steeped in history. Humanist ceremonies are great and I got to work with the brilliant humanist celebrant Ginny Collins again. I’m documenting more humanist ceremonies every year and they’re such a personal way to conduct a ceremony.
After a short drinks reception we all jumped on an old route master to get to the third and final venue, The Union Club in Soho. Uber cool.
Here are just a few of my very favourtites from this unconventional, highly relaxed and fun wedding day
