A huge congratulations to Lina & Andrew who after meeting on Valentine’s Day a few years ago, tied the knot in December at a pre-Christmas wedding. The ceremony was held at Chelsea Registry Office on the Kings Road and the reception at Sketch in Mayfair. Lina is a make up artist and we have previously worked together, so I was thrilled when Lina rang me and asked me to be her wedding photographer. What I didn’t know is that the call I had about the date a few days before was from her romantic fiance, Andrew, who knew she wanted me to shoot her wedding, and was secretly checking I was available before telling her the good news. Lina had a strong idea of what she wanted her look to be, and I love the ethereal dress she wore & the matching white accessories. A true winter princess!
Sketch is quite a special place for me too….. it’s where I had my first proper date with the Man, now my fiance. On Valentine’s Day no less. So to be able to go back and photograph a wedding there was truly special and magical. The food was incredible, the surroundings absolutely stunning with their rich velvety fabrics and warm, opulent colours perfect for a cosy winter celebration. Add a group of special family & friends and some fine food and wine….then mix in the Singing Waiters, the insanely talented silouette artist Alison Russell (this is the first time I had seen a silouette artist at work and she was amazing!) and you have a fun and celebratory evening. Kudos to Sarah Haywood for making it all run so smoothly and for her special touches (I love the mistletoe and glitter ribbon placenames).
So Lina and Andrew, wishing you both a wonderful magical and long life together….may all your dreams come true xxx
