When we met Paul and Sarah they had jet-lag after returning the day before from six months away travelling. Tired and overwhelmed by their trip they were still coming to terms with the fact that they were now planning their wedding. Although exhausted, they were relaxed and really friendly, we instantly liked them. They are both full to the brim of London style and we knew that their ideas would really reflect who they are as people. Paul, as an architect was keen on a building of iconic proportions. So when we heard they had chosen The National Theatre for the ceremony, we knew this would be a right up Paul's street and would given us photos with instant "concrete coolness". Sarah had her own style and proved that in her creative abilities. When we reached Malmaison, where she was getting ready, she was sewing her headdress together, adding the blue feather to her masterpiece. It suited her perfectly and was such a subtle, yet stylish addition to her gorgeous dress.
Paul and Sarah decided to walk each other in to the ceremony. It was such a relaxed start to a beautiful and very personal ceremony. On occasions like this its hard not to smile and join in with the celebrations. We found some time after the ceremony to enjoy the iconic style of the National Theatre. Its concrete walls, angular levels and individual shape made great black and white photos, which is something that both Paul and Sarah had requested specifically.
Their reception was held back at Sarah's family home in their stunning garden and a beautifully decorated marquee. It was a perfect contrast to the hustle and bustle of the Big Smoke. With beautiful lavenders, roses, herbs and hydrangeas adorning the garden it added a delicate aspect to the occasion.
We truly loved having the opportunity to be a part of Paul and Sarah's wedding. It really was such a special celebration and we thoroughly enjoyed sharing in it and capturing their day. Thanks again guys and we really hope you are enjoying your newly married life together. o&c x
