A Little East London Wedding

After a few emails about their wedding, Marina invited me round to their house for a chat over a cup of tea. We talked about weddings, photography, cake and their family. I was introduced to their children and as we discussed their wedding plans, it was clear that the day was to be a relaxed celebration with very little formality, just a chance to be surrounded by loved ones.
When I arrived at their home on the day of the wedding, I was welcomed like an old friend. We chatted about music, I met their cat and what surprised me most was the sense of calm both Marina and Adrian had.  They where both excited about the day ahead, and as they got ready together, it was clear they were both devoted to each other. Marina had a choice of two dresses for the day and ended up wearing the most gorgeous vintage designer dress.
After a beautiful ceremony at Hackney Town Hall, a glass of champagne was handed to each guests for a toast on the steps of the town hall. It was such a lovely moment full of laughter and a few tears especially as the kids were running around still throwing confetti.

2011: You made my dreams come true

I don't really know where to start. 2011 has been a whirlwind of activity. I started the year engaged and full of excitement about my own wedding and I finished the year a married woman, more in love with my husband than I have ever been. When I look back on 2011 I am overwhelmed by the year gone by and amazed by the wonderful couples and beautiful weddings I was a part of.  I made some wonderful friends, met some truly inspirational people, worked alongside some of my favourite photographers and started on a crazy journey that the year before was just a dream.
