Goodness, where to begin with this post! This has to be one of the most precious and personal we have done in a while. Lets have a go and all will be revealed! Emily and Stef are two very lovely people, with three of the most gorgeous children. Emily is a super talented photographer and Stef is a super talented entrepreneur. They planned a wedding and invited their family and friends to be a part of their celebration. Their celebration lasted over 4 days and included 2 wedding ceremonies and a naming ceremony for their newest edition.
The big thing about this blog for me is that Emily happens to be one of my longest standing friends. We have been great pals for over 23 years! (sheesh! we are old!) Emily and I grew up together in Birmingham, attending the same secondary school and 6th from college. We have grown up through loads of different things and have many precious memories, largely fuelled around Snoopy and Moseley.
Emily was also our wedding photographer (nearly 5 years ago!) and our wedding was her first ever wedding. Stef also joined us at our wedding and this was the first time we had had the pleasure of meeting him.
Along the way, over the past 5 years, we have met up with Emily and have supported her at weddings as well as modelling for her on a few occasions. There was one such "sh-modelling" day that ended with us capturing some images that would have dramatic affects and changes to Emily and Stefs relationship. We had the complete and utter pleasure of capturing images of Emily that she later used to propose to Stef (quick reminder here)
The next year or so has been based around planning their amazing wedding weekend.Emily and Stef very kindly asked Owen and myself and lovely friends Steve and Evelyne to capture "Part One" of their wedding celebration. We firstly attended their sweet civil ceremony and after some celebratory champagne and food we headed on down to South Bank for a photo shoot. These photos are as a result of "Wedding day #1".
Its quite exciting and emotional to have the chance to share these with you as we were with these guys for 5 days and really went through the final ups and downs of their wedding planning, but you know what, the whole 4 days celebration was so much fun and such a beautiful reflection of the love these guys have for one another and for their super-cute family.
The main wedding celebration was captured by the lovely Polly Alexandre and I know we are all waiting with much anticipation to see her work from the day. I have no doubt that her images are going to share the love, warmth, support and fun that we all had at the Quinton-Lewandowski wedding weekend!
We will add some more of our work from the big celebration in a few weeks, but for now, we really hope you enjoy these two gorgeous people.
Thank you so so much Emily and Stef for asking us to be a part of your day. You are such a creative pair with beautiful ideas and we feel totally honoured to call you friends. We love you 5 very much x x x o&c
PS - Must point out the truly beautiful dress Emily wore is by dress designer "Mr Christian" and his lovely wife Allison, from The People Shop (Birmingham). Now, if you think this is nice, you are in for such a treat when you see the stunning dress they made for Emily for her wedding day. Beautiful stuff and really gorgeous people to boot! x ;D
