A couple of summers ago I was both guest and photographer at the wonderful wedding of Nick and Pip in Somerset and had the pleasure of sitting on a table with both a friend Lisha and also newly engaged couple Charlie and Tetyana. Now, Lisha is one of my biggest supporters, for which I am eternally grateful! I've covered a number of weddings recently on the back of her glowing reference and she didn't hesitate in recommending me to Charlie and Tetyana there and then. Following the wedding I picked out this sweet moment between them from the wedding:
Disappointingly I was already booked for their full wedding in the Ukraine this month but I was able to join them for the more intimate ceremony at the absolutely stunning Temple Church in central London (which is featured in The Da Vinci Code); one of the most historic and beautiful churches in London.
The warden closed off the church to the visitors and there was an incredible sense of calm and quiet anticipation in this vast space as Charlie waited at the end of the intimidatingly long aisle. There was pure joy in their faces and it was very emotional to have been a part of such a wonderful occasion. And Charlie and Tetyana were the perfect couple to photograph after the ceremony; so happy, easy and relaxed with one another.
