Wedding of the year photography for the magazine Wedding

The magazine Wedding selected lovely Nuala and Adrian to win the big yearly WOTY 2015 competition… and then… the magazine selected me to shoot their big day. (Yes, I’m not joking – a day of surprise when that email landed in my inbox)

On a beautiful sunny Autumn day, I woke up in an amazing mood, ready to head back to Notley Abbey in Buckinghamshire to capture the day of these awesome two! It was so nice to be part of the day for two people who had been awarded with 25K towards their wedding(!) Yes, that’s what they won in the big Wedding of the year competition, held by Wedding. I love it when I get to see good things come to good people!

And today I have the pleasure of sharing a link to the online feature of their day, on the magazine Wedding’s web site. Of course, a full blog chapter coming soon here to the blog. Scroll down to the link to see their feature, and to read the interview with Nuala – which really made me smile 🙂

You can’t say “congratulations” too many times… so congratulations again, to Nuala & Adrian!

I’m just feeling so moved today.

wedding-magazine-winners-photographerA few weeks back, I found out that the UK magazine Wedding, have chosen me to photograph the winning wedding in their large yearly competition… I know right, wow is all I can say, that the magazine editors decided to pick me – that I tell you, was quite a special email to open 🙂

But that’s not why I’m suddenly so moved. Today, while browsing around and researching for coming weddings, I actually found the video that the winning couple made when they got to the final… And it just made me feel really emotional to hear all the lovely things that the friends and family have got to say about this couple. And I realised how special I feel about photographing the wedding day of these two – to know that Nuala and Adrian who seems such lovely people – but who otherwise would have struggled to put any larger sums of money into their day, now have won a £25k wedding package (!) I feel really good about being part of this.
And to see that sometimes, good things come to good people…

wedding-photographer-london-landmark-hotelThere are so many things to appreciate as a wedding photographer. It’s a real privilege to spend a whole day capturing images that tell a story, to be part of somebody’s best day in their lives, to be surrounded by all the happiness and emotions, by the beauty and atmosphere, and to have a whole day of being creative and nervously kept on your toes, and feeling those gushes of that special yihaa feeling, when you’ve really nailed a shot.
But above all these things making it so special to be a wedding photographer, must be the opportunity to see strong love, and to hear the stories of how people have overcome and succeeded great obstacles together.
Julia and Marco’s wedding day, made me feel just that. I felt like a tingle in my stomach from seeing how strong these two people’s love is for one and other. And perhaps it is  strong love, that has taken them through the obstacles they’ve been facing – and finally let their highest wish come true.

Julia and Marco celebrated their amazing day at the stunning and modern Landmark Hotel in London, surrounded by all their close family and some “Italian style amount” of dinner courses. While the rest of the world where glued to TV screens for the tennis in Wimbledon, England and Italy where both winners in a completely different game entirely, somewhere high up above London, in the tower of Landmark Hotel 😉

I love it when those childhood soft toys come out on the wedding day… particularly when they get dressed up in wedding attire 🙂 . Marco’s creative niece made the outfit for little Muchoo!
