It is a frequent ice-breaker question from a client when we initially meet: “…so,” they ask, “how does it usually work?”
I outline my hands-off approach to shooting a wedding day. Ideas are always added into the mix and a good plan begins to emerge. There was no such input required from me from Lucy and Adrian’s day - they had it totally sorted.
This one would be a little different: a mid-morning service, onto a drinks reception… then, catch the train to Paris!
I admit, my first thought was how I was going to get everything done - but in reality, it was a fabulous morning with a lovely bunch of people.
The service was romantic and personal and enjoyed by family and close friends. London’s stunning St Pancras Renaissance Hotel worked perfectly purely as a venue - but when you factor in its access to the Eurostar terminal, it was ideal. My brief was to work the space and capture a set of shots that upon viewing post-wedding pulled the viewer back into the atmosphere of the occasion.
With drinks over, I shadowed the wedding party all the way to check-in for Paris. A last wave to the camera and then they would were off for a few hours of chat and bubbly as they travelled to a long weekend in a city tailor-made for romance.
