I had two almost simultaneous enquiries for this same date in July and had to make a decision but Kate made a very convincing argument as to how much fun and how beautiful a wedding at the Pergola Hill and Garden would be. Having photographed a styled shoot there before I knew what a fantastic setting it was and so it was decided. Kate and Matt attracted a fairly international bunch - she's British, he's Australian and they were in the process of making the move out to LA whilst planning for the wedding. They are both in the film industry and so half the guests had cameras, most bigger than my little Fuji XT2's, which I shot this entire wedding on. This was a super relaxed day with the ceremony and drinks reception at the gardens before everyone headed over to Lauderdale House on the double decker bus for further celebrations.
With many thanks to all those involved in making this such a special day:
