Diane & Teddie are the loveliest couple who live in London. Diane is originally from America and Teddie is from Finland so they decided to get married in Rome. When they asked me to join them there to photograph their weekend of celebrations, I was so excited. Rome is one of my favourite cities and to be able to photograph such a beautiful event there is always a huge privilege.
The lucky couple chose the magnificent Villa Aurelia for their wedding day, which is such a special location. If it wasn’t magical enough, Diane & Teddie chose the wonderful Floriala Decor to create the most breathtakingly beautiful floristry. The ceremony was performed underneath the most splendid floral arch of Peonies, Roses and Delphiniums and pink Rose petals lined the aisle. Then later on, guests dined in the open air courtyard , with tables full of pink Sweet Peas, Hydrangeas, Roses & bowls of cherries, complete with hundreds of candles and lemon trees.
Diane wore the most incredible Marchesa dress and the whole thing was just magical.
Their amazing wedding was planned by the super talented Wed in Italy Event Planners, who specialise in destination weddings in Italy and did such a wonderful job. It really was such a beautiful wedding and when I look at the photos, I just wish I could go back…
Now this wedding was special. Definitely one of my favourites weddings of last year, possibly of all time.
Liv Newiss, founder of Indigo Wedding Events has the most wonderful taste and everything she creates is just SO beautiful. All the suppliers she uses are the best in the business and her weddings are always heaven. The wedding was very close to Liv’s heart, as the bride and groom are her best friends and she somehow managed the entire day effortlessly, whilst also moonlighting as The Maid of Honour!
The glorious Scarlett & Violet created floral heaven in their marquee at Welford Park in Berkshire. Charlie & Iain are lucky enough to live in a cottage on the grounds so they were allowed to use the beautiful location for their wedding day and their service was held at the church, also within the grounds.
Charlie & Iain are possible the most in love couple I have met. They have a beautiful son Hugo together and are the happiest little family I have ever had the pleasure to photograph. The whole day was full of love and joy and beauty and was truly inspirational to be part of…
This summer, Maya & Christian invited me to her home town of Salzburg, Austria, to photograph their amazing three day wedding celebrations. It was all masterfully planned by the super talented Prime Moments Events, who were a total joy to work alongside.
I felt so very lucky to be there… As the founder of the super cool online fashion retailer Avenue 32, Maya has absolutely impeccable taste. For the ceremony, Maya wore the most heavenly, romantic, full lace Elie Saab dress, with spiked Christian Louboutin heels. Her maids of honour wore white & blue floral Vilshenko dresses, which were definitely the prettiest dresses I have ever seen. Sharma, one the loveliest and most talented makeup artists in the business, travelled with us to Salzburg to work her magic, making everyone look breathtakingly beautiful.
St Peters Cathedral, Salzburg, was decorated simply with cream roses and Hydrangeas, letting the glorious interiors work their magic. After a beautiful ceremony, their guests wandered the few steps to The Salzburg Rotary Club, where they sipped champagne, ate delicious bowl food and danced in the open air courtyard to the wonderful travelling band.
If all that wasn’t enough, later on that evening, their Guests reconvened at The Sound of Music’s Glorious Leopoldskron Palace. Guests looked out over the lake on the most beautiful of summers’s evenings. Maya wore a stunning Maticevski dress and of course, looked divine. Guests dined across three of the most opulent rooms in The Palace while the wandering band got many of the guests dancing on the tables. After their wonderful meal, guests then headed downstairs and danced the night away. We had the honour of working alongside the brilliant Film maker, Jeff Wood Visuals who made the most stylish wedding film for Maya & Christian.
The whole weekend was just incredible. It was so glamorous and beautiful but so fun and and relaxed… It was everything I think the perfect wedding should be.
