After months and months of what seemed like never-ending rain the weather decided to buck up its ideas up in time for Yasmin and Alex’s spring wedding in London.
I had Heather along shooting with me this time so that we could cover Yasmin and Alex’s wedding prep simultaneously. In fact Heather has already worked with Alex on a few of her own photography projects so we felt incredibly privileged to be chosen to shoot his wedding to the gorgeous Yasmin.
Yasmin and Alex’s wedding was a day of two halves: the first was an intimate morning ceremony with just close friends and family at Stoke Newington Town Hall and then a lovely brunch at a nearby florists café. Later in the day we headed over to the Ecology Pavilion in East London to join over 100 more guests for a more formal Nikkah (an Islamic marriage ceremony that lasts for about an hour with readings, prayers and wisdom from an Imam.) I’ve covered many weddings from a variety of different cultures and religions, including Indian Weddings, but Alex & Yasmin’s day was such a beautiful blend of east & west – it was truly awesome to be a part of.
Such a colourful wedding, full of touching traditions, happiness and spring sunshine.
Alex and Yasmin – huge congratulations. You’re both beyond lovely and it was an absolute pleasure to shoot your beautiful wedding!
