Quirky Alternative Wedding in London
I absolutely adore these two! First off, when Jennie first contacted me about photographing her wedding to Scott at The Dukes Head wedding venue pub in Putney, she was incredibly excited about every single thing, and every email she sent me between then and the wedding day (and since) was just bubbling over with enthusiasm. I’m always super excited about weddings, but Jennie’s excitement was just infectious! She and Scott have been together since high school – over half their lives, as they pointed out in their speeches – so their wedding day was about celebrating that love and commitment in true “Scott and Jennie” fashion. So Scott wore jeans and a jacket, while Jennie (aka the craft queen) went to town with pink dye and glitter! She bought a plain white dress and dip-dyed it pink and sparkled it up; she made the sparkly heart belt to go with it, as well as her cat-ear headdress (atop her kickass pink mohawk!) and all the paper bouquets! The girls got a pink taxi to the venue, and then following the ceremony Scott and Jennie did TWO confetti exits – one for flowers and one for bubbles! Confetti is my favourite thing at a wedding (well, one of them), so this was made for me!
After some strolling up and down the Putney riverfront – which fortunately was dry; the following weekend I was in the area and the entire street was caked with mud! – for photos (thanks for giving me time to get so many lovely ones, you guys), we went back to the Duke’s Head pub for a “help yourself” dinner in the downstairs bar – all very chilled out and relaxed, just like Scott and Jennie. I don’t think I’ve met a less stressed bride ever – Jennie, you’re awesome! Plus we bonded over our mermaid leg tattoos 🙂
Oh and of course, Jennie also made the caketopper figurines of herself and Scott – so cute!
Thanks to my partner in crime, my second shooter Heline Bekker!
