Remember this fantastic wedding celebration? A multicultural 2 day wedding – Day 1 featuring a Hindu ceremony and day 2, a catholic ceremony followed by a western cocktail party. Last week, I had the great pleasure to see their first day featured on the Beyond Beyond wedding blog!

Who would believe that this wedding photography is from eh…. North London? Don’t we all think that it looks like totally shot somewhere in India? Nope, the Oshwal Centre hosting this lovely venue and an actual temple, is situated on the green slopes of Potters bar.

Want to see some more from this colour- sparkling wedding, that I photographed in London / Hertfordshire? Just follow the links! Day 1 The Hindu celebrations and Day 2 The catholic/western celebrations

A couple of weeks ago I had the wonderful commission to shoot the bridal fashion show and marketing images for the organisers of Bluewater wedding fair. The wedding fair in Glow, Bluewater – featuring some of the most sought after wedding industry suppliers of the South East, was heaving with couples on the lookout for everything from bridal ware and rings, to cakes, photography, venues, transport, decor – and everything else that a couple might want to have for their day.

The spring bridal show in Glow offered a fantastic insight in to the 2013 bridal fashion, delivered with some really entertaining choreography. Jazzy, playful dance- inspired choreography that generated smiles from the crowd, was intervened with class and elegance – all choreographed by Vicki Jackson in conjunction with Xcite – perfectly portraying the current bridal trends of rich and vibrant colours, vintage details and dreamy textures.

About this season’s trends in bridal fashion:

” This season’s highlights include beautiful lace, short hemlines, jewel necklines and exciting developments in colour – whether rich and vibrant or more subdued, all kinds of hues are featured on the catwalks. While full and frothy skirts are still (and will always be) in fashion, more fitted and ladylike styles are also emerging in a style reminiscent of Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy. There is also lots of romance with dreamy textures, soft layering and vintage inspired details.”

Murder on the dance floor – Feature in Your London Wedding magazine ♣ Congratulations Lucy & Joe! ♣

It was like opening a late Christmas present, when opening latest issue of Your London Wedding magazine. It’s just really nice to see one of your weddings printed as a feature.:)

 

I looooved shooting Lucy and Joe’s wedding – there’s just so much to capture when there is a theme involved. And how about an Agatha Christie theme for a wedding – with the reception venue just around the corner from Poirot’s head quarters?

 

It was an absolute treat to be selected to shoot a wedding with such a special theme!

 

Their whole day had so much to it – a beautiful “getting – ready – location” for Lucy and her bridesmaids, gorgeous modern church – St Peters in Notting Hill – the perfect reception venue which totally has the vibe of an old English, slightly Noir filmed movie – or an Agatha Christie episode (The Distillers), and lots of decor details bringing out their Agatha Christie theme. And Lucy and Joe are such great people so I’m really pleased that Your London Wedding magazine decided to choose their wedding for a feature!

Lucy’s interview was a really great read as well – with some good tips for other wedding couples. And what advice could be better than to just Relax and throw an excellent party ? Your wedding day can be such a stressful occasion – imagine – all the planning, finding the right suppliers, and then on the day: Worrying about whether everybody is having a good time, what can go wrong and are the rings where they should be… So I agree, just stay relaxed. If you are one of those people loosing sleep over your forthcoming wedding just “do a Lucy” – Focus and throw an excellent party!

The feature of Lucy and Joe’s Agatha Christie themed wedding is in the latest issue ( Jan- Feb 2013 ) of Your London wedding Magazine.
