VI•IX•MMXIVAlicia and Michael

towerbridge6

This was a wedding I did towards the end of summer which lasted the entire day. It was very obvious that a lot of thought went into the preparation of this day, as it was vibrant and energetic from morning to night with an impressive number of family and friends supporting Alicia and Michael throughout the day. There were no dull moments, and it allowed me to capture special moments that I have personally never experienced before.

When I found out that the ceremony was to take place at Southwark Cathedral I was truly excited, as it’s one of the key venues I’ve always wanted to shoot a wedding at. Having shot a wedding there now this venue did not disappoint with it’s epic proportions.

The reception was located at the Hilton Hotel at More London Place, a spot in the city with very sleek architecture. The hotel venue was lovely, however what made this reception great was the experience to come that would really set this wedding apart. The energy from the wedding party entrance to the dancing is definitely something that is rarely matched by any other culture, it was simply awesome.

    So lively and energetic, lots of action shots. The dark indoor shots came out so well. It's a great mix of elegant, outdoor, indoor, action, quirky, cute and beautiful wedding photography.
