As a photographer I tend to spend the majority of my time behind the camera, and rarely in front of it. In fact I know many photographers who really don’t like having their photo taken at all. I’m not that bad, but I will say that it does feel strange to be the one in front of the lens when you are so used to being the one pressing the button. The only way to do it is to have absolute trust in your chosen photographer…otherwise you spend the whole day second-guessing what happens and hows it’s done.
So I knew exactly how Vincent felt during the day I spent with him, documenting his wedding day with Joanna. Vincent is also a photographer, and I was very happy and honored to have the opportunity to work with them both. The weather was a bit touch and go, but all that meant was great skies and lots of hugs to stay warm…for them, not for me!
I started the day with Joanna at her home, where she got ready for the main event with her parents and sister.
We then made our way to St Patricks Church in Fallowfield for the ceremony.
Following the ceremony, we made a visit to family members that couldn’t be there in person.
After some group photos with their closest friends, we meandered around and through the Byward Market, eventually making it to the the Empire Grill for their party.
As you can see, they had a great bunch of friends there to help them celebrate.
