Stealing a bride’s moment

Some people reckon that one’s wedding day should be unforgettableā€¦

For one couple it most certainly was. The day arrived and after weeks of rain and storms one could indeed breathe a sigh of relief as the sun shone in the relatively calm and upmarket neighbourhood of Lincolns Inn Fields. The chauffeur arrived in the gorgeous vintage Roller and lets face facts, the couple looked good. So what now could possibly go wrong? What?

Ah yes; choosing to get married in style the very same day the World Naked Bike Ride descends on the square and takes over! The couple stared out of the luxurious gas guzzling limo’s windows askance at the naked, wigged, painted, pierced, and tattooed people that now surrounded them on their bikes, unicycles, and skates all protesting about the worlds reliance on oil. Where they might have liked to wave at the general wellwishers, they got an eyeful of crossbars and genitals, – and why not? They’ll never forget their wedding day. To be perfectly frank they missed a photo opportunity and a half – if they had got out and walked amongst the crowd they could have had some lovely pics for the mother in law’s mantelpiece.ā€¦.so where was that wedding photographer????

Do you want to take our wedding photos?

Last spring, Will and Alys – who are friends approached me having seen this photo blog and the kind of work I do and asked if I’d be interested in doing the photos for their wedding which took place a few weeks ago. I pointed out that I wasn’t at that point a wedding photographer as such. They already knew. Will has been to plenty of weddings in his time and cannot stand being made to wait while “photographers spend ages taking photos that once seen will never be looked at again”. So I was asked and they hoped I’d bring something of my work experience elsewhere to the table. And some speed. And a spot of irreverence….
