A garden wedding in the middle of London … not something you come across very often. Â My first in fact in ten years of shooting weddings. Â Sopie and Jake were keen to hold the wedding at Sophie’s parents house near Richmond Park and with some ingenious marquee construction they pulled it off. Â Top work by Marquee Mark (I kid you not) meant their modest garden was completely enclosed to provide space for 80 guests, a hedge, fishpond and flower beds …
It also meant that everything was just a few minutes walk for me – starting one street away with the Jake and the boys at the pub, then a quick stroll back to the house for the final preparations with Sophie and her three sisters. Â Just around the corner is the beautiful Christ Church where the ceremony was completed in double quick time by a football fan vicar with a game to watch.
After a bucket full of confetti was thrown it was back to the house to welcome everyone before the wedding breakfast. Â Still reeling from a relentless best mans speech I stole Jake and Sophie away for a few couple shots at the nearby common just in time for the evening guests to arrive and the dancing to start.
Congrats Sophie and Jake !
