Kim & Chara – Wedding Photography at 45 Millbank, London

So…. what a day! You saw the sneak peek a few weeks ago, and now here’s the full post from Kim & Chara’s beautiful London wedding at Islington Town Hall & 45 Millbank. You wouldn’t guess it was spectacular gale force winds and rains would you? The smiles and happiness glowed throughout the day against a glamorous backdrop created by Kim herself. To read more about Kim’s ideas and planning process you can visit her blog or the website of The Pink Pumpkin her wedding planning consultancy. I will just share what Kim wrote to me about he images:

“You have such an amazing talent Polly; I really have no words to describe how happy we are with our images. Every time I look at them I have tears in my eyes. All my life I have hated having my picture taken and been so self conscious of what I look like and hyper critical of myself, and was so worried that I would be the same with our wedding pictures, but I love every single one of them and how you have managed to capture the love between Chara and I and all our friends and family. I have no idea how you do it, but everyone looks amazing in all the images, and we will treasure them, and the memories they contain, for the rest of our lives. We can never thank you enough!”

Kim’s Dream Team included : Hair by Severin Hubert, Make up by Mariam Jensen, Ceremony at Islington Town Hall, Reception at 45 Millbank, Dress custom adapted from Novia d’Art by her talented sister at Mamfii Bridal who also meticulously glued hundred of tiny crystals onto the bride’s black shoes, Flowers by Cindy Kirkland at Creative Works; Food by Kalm Kitchen, Photobooth by Say Fromage, Cake by Kim’s Mum, Cupcakes from Hummingbird Bakery, Band Andalus, DJ Mitch Matthews, Bar by Bars by Design. Wedding Reporting by Emma The Wedding Reporter (look closely and you’ll spot her in the background in a couple of shots with her little notebook!)

Thank you to Catherine Mead for second shooting (photographs of the boys before the ceremony above), and to Vicky for assisting.

Jo Kent - The most beautiful images of a truly gorgeous pair. Possibly the best wedding I will ever get to attend and a testament of Kim’s incredible talent for fun, personal and unique weddings. I feel so lucky to have met Kim, as a client and a friend.

Polly and Catherine….if I wasn’t happily married I would find any excuse to do it all again. You’re simply amazing.
