Naomi & Chris’ wedding in London was one of the highlights of my year.  Their sense of fun was infectious and I know that this shone through in their photographs.  They treated the 20 minutes we had together for the photos of just the two of them as a real opportunity to enjoy each others’ company, chat about how the day was going so far and to start married life the way it should be started.. a trip to Polka Gelato for ice cream and lots of laughs.

The 1st of October was a scorcher this year and I was so thrilled for them as everyone had that summery upbeat vibe about them.  We started off the day in the penthouse of the Queen Charlotte Street Hotel where Naomi and her two sisters got ready and into their dresses. Chloe headed off to meet the guys at the hope & Anchor opposite Islington Town Hall (where the ceremony was taking place) while I stayed with the girls.

We all then headed on the routemaster to Six Fitzroy Square where the party really started. The dancefloor literally felt like it was shaking the building when Chloe and I left later that night, a true reflection of the most fun day. Thanks Naomi & Chris for reminding us why we love photographing weddings. Amazing curry, great company and a mini heatwave – what more could you ask for?

Naomi chose the most divine dress from Fur Coat No Knickers, which was breathtaking.  She teamed it with a pair of metallic Jimmy Choos – perfect.

The dress was a 1950’s original which was shortened, tweaked, enhanced and overall tailored to Naomi’s specifications.

The flowers were striking and were the masterpieces of Joy, one of Naomi’s friends.  They selected them from the New Covent Garden Flower market then designed the bouquets together, choosing colours, lace, blooms and foliage.

Naomi’s headpiece (see just below the flowers) was handmade by Karin Andreasson who uses vintage jewellery, lace and feathers for her pieces.  She discovered her at her stall in Broadway Market.

Another friend of Naomi – Kamila – who is a nail artist and beautician did her make-up and nails on the day.

Naomi’s jewellery came from Haute Bride San Francisco and her sisters’ dresses were thanks to good old ASOS.
