A Beautiful Greenwich Wedding

A Beautiful Greenwich WeddingA Beautiful Greenwich Wedding is the best way to describe Joanna and Vinay’s wedding. On a blistering hot day the couple arrived together at the Ladye Star of the Sea Church in Greenwich to meet their guests. Rarely do I get an opportunity to photograph a couple before the ceremony so this was treat for me.

Joanna and Vinay’s wedding photography coverage was mainly shot in a documentary style but they also wanted a few of my signature wedding photos. My signature shot  incorporates the sun and the sky to give the photo a very dramatic feel. The couple made my job much easier as they were very natural in front of the camera and when they were together were very loving towards each other.

I met Joanna and Vinay at wedding fair in Blackheath at the Claredon Hotel earlier in the year. It was the first wedding fair I’d done and although it was a small event it was very worthwhile.

Back to the ceremony, I have to say a very big thank you Father Kevin Robinson for being so accommodating towards the photographs. I hope the church gets the funds it needs to make the changes.

After the ceremony we all made our way back to the Trafalgar Tavern, this was really lovely as were able to walk through Greenwich Park… Families and school children were congratulating the couple as we walked, which was lovely to see.

Thank you to Joanna and Vinay for asking me to photograph their wedding day. Here a few of the images from the day, which I hope you like.

Here’s a comment from Joanna on seeing her images:

Iain, they’re absolutely stunning! love them!

thanks so much for all your work”

Also thanks to Richard Awbery for assisting on the day.

    We are so glad to have met you and enlisted your services. The pictures that you took for Joanna and I on our special day are breathtaking!

    I love how you captured the events of the day and was most impressed at how many “human touches” you caught on camera that I would never have expected you to even notice. The framing and focussing of all the pictures is incredible and I feel like every picture tells a story. We are instantly transported back to those moments by looking at them and that is exactly what we hoped for from our wedding photographs.

    Thank you not only for taking such beautiful pictures but also for being a genuinely wonderful person. You helped make us comfortable, boosted our egos and accommodated all our requests like the walk through the park which everyone thought was a great touch.

    I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone and everyone I know for any type of occasion!

    Thanks again to both you and Richard for all that you did for us
    -Joanna and Vinay

    PS. How on earth did you get the pictures ready for us so quickly? 🙂
