Amy and Gidon

This wedding required two photographers so my trusty assistant was dropped off to cover the groom’s family whilst I made the short drive to Stanmore to cover the bridal preparations, where I met videographer Mark Shipperley and his team.

Make up artist Sara Field had positioned Amy opposite a huge window, enabling me to capture some beautiful natural daylight photographs of the bride getting ready.  Amy looked stunning, whilst her dad sat nearby making the final alterations to his welcome speech.

Once made up Amy slipped into her elegant wedding dress, and I commenced taking a few bridal portraits. Checking the images so far, I can see that Amy is relaxed with the camera and I am able to capture her radiance on this special day, so I look forward to documenting the rest of the wedding.

The vintage Rolls Royce was waiting to whisk Amy accompanied by her father for the hours drive to marry her sweetheart Gidon, whom she met at Manchester University over five years ago, at The River Bank Plaza Hotel.

Firstly the bedekken and I could see how in love they were with the look in Gidon’s eyes as he first set sight on his stunning wife to be.

The ceremony took place in the Thames Room that overlooks the river, under the beautiful chuppah adorned with the most amazing flowers from Miri Moses. And once the tradition of the glass was broken, the party could begin.

Toastmaster Steve Warwick announced the entrance of the couple to their reception, prepared by caterer James Zimmer, for over 270 guests, who danced the night away to the fabulous sounds of Muzika.

By the end of the night I had hundreds of beautiful wedding photographs from which to create their album. Mazel tov! – to a lovely couple.
