Surrey Wedding Photography – Smallfield Place Wedding {Thora & Peter}

Quirky wedding photographer London

 

Thora and Peter were married at Smallfield Place wedding venue in Surrey, and all I can say is WOW. The most fun wedding day everrrrrrr!

You might remember Thora and Peter from their kickass woodland fantasy engagement photos, so I already knew their wedding would be super fun! When I arrived at Smallfield Place in the morning, I was met by a bevy of excited bridesmaids with vintage-styled hair and fun rockabilly dresses, and one bridesman in a kilt! My friend Anneke from Retromorphosist was just putting the finishing touches to Thora’s epic Game of Thrones themed hairdo and makeup (hooray for red lipstick!), and then it was off in a London wedding routemaster bus to the wedding ceremony at the Croydon Minster (where Peter’s Aunt officiated the marriage, keeping it a wonderfully family affair).

After the ceremony, everyone piled back on the wedding bus to go back to Smallfield Place wedding venue, and that’s when the fun truly began! Thora and Peter didn’t want a traditional wedding celebration: instead, they envisioned an afternoon of fun and games in the sunny gardens, with everyone having a whale of a time, lots of snacks and tasty treats, but no sit-down formal dinner or speeches or anything like that. To this end, they organised giant chess, giant jenga, table tennis, croquet and a bouncy castle, all of which were utilised from start to finish! But the most fun EVER was had by the guests who took part in the team games – Peter and Thora devised some pretty epic tasks for them to accomplish, which included composing a song and a limerick for the bride and groom, crossing the lawn without touching the ground, jumping on the bouncy castle and getting everyone in a group shot, and spelling out a word using only your bodies. It was BRILLIANT to photograph the guests getting thoroughly involved in the game – and being incredibly competitive, which I totally appreciated. 🙂

So many thanks to this awesome quirky couple for being amazing and having your wedding day your way! I loved it!

And thanks as always to my lovely second shooter, Heline Bekker (aka my partner in silliness).
