At the end of October I photographed Lora and Nick’s wedding – just in time before the clocks went back, so we still had that extra hour of sunlight for photos! Nice planning, you two. Plus it was a gorgeous balmy day – we all went outside in short sleeves quite happily, and my second shooter, Paola, was even wearing sandals!
The main thing that stood out to me about this lovely wedding was just how happy Lora and Nick were. I don’t think I got a single photo of Lora without a huge smile on her face, and Nick wasn’t far behind. They were BEAMING their faces off, and I loved it! And the other thing that struck me was the close relationship between Lora, her sister Claire, and their Mum. The sweetest trio of ladies – and the latter two spent the day going from tears to huge smiles and back to tears again. They were so happy for Lora and Nick.
The ceremony was held at The Swan at Shakespeares Globe wedding venue, which got geeky me very excited, because, well, Shakespeare. 🙂 After the ceremony we headed out for photos on the river bank, where Nick and Lora didn’t let the hundreds of tourists put them off one bit, and Claire managed to hold off the crowds on the Millennium Bridge so we could get a photo of the couple there!
Quick explanation of the well-loved Tiggr toy you’ll see in a few photos – he was Nick’s favourite stuffed as an animal as a child, so Lora sneaked him out of their house and delivered him to Nick’s mum, who made him a suit and bowtie, and brought him as a surprise wedding guest! I LOVED him, and it made me wish someone had brought my favourite toy, Carrot (a purple bunny) to my wedding in a little tuxedo!
