When Nick and Gill contacted me in the deep dark winter of last year, asking me if I'd be interested in photographing their wedding I jumped at the chance of capturing their special day. We met to discuss their ideas for the wedding - how it would be a fun but classic wedding with lots of personal touches.
I first met Nick and Gill 12 years ago, working with them for a small travel company in Camden. It was a fantastic place full of like-minded people who were adventurous explorers, young at heart and always up for having fun. It should also go down in the Guinness Book of Records for being one of the best places to meet a future spouse. I met my husband there, our best man and his wife met there - it must have produced at least 20 marriages and that is no exaggeration! Although, I think Nick and Gill's was the longest in the making ;)
Before the wedding Nick had a few drinks with some of his closest friends at The White Swan pub on Twickenham's riverside. The ceremony took place at Orleans House Gallery, a little further up the river. It was a really beautiful venue for the emotional ceremony witnessed by Nick and Gill's friends and family. After a champagne reception in the pretty grounds the wedding party excitedly made their way along the river to Hammerton's Ferry where the Yarmouth Belle was waiting to take them on a river journey to Richmond to collect more of the wedding party.
After a wonderful sail along the river back up to Twickenham, our final destination was The Wharf at Teddington Lock for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations. It was the perfect end to the perfect day. Thank you so much Nick and Gill for asking me to part of your amazing day.
