Wedding at the Kensington Roof Gardens

I met Sam and Damian at the home of my very good friends Vicky and Russell who recommended my work to them.

The wedding took place at the very glamorous location   The Kensington Roof Gardens which is just the most amazing venue!  I had already done a recce and met with Frances the wedding co-ordinator there (who is fabulous) and planned my main shots in advance of the day.  What with pink flamingoes and glorious views I knew that I was going to have a great time!

Sam got ready in the Moo room which is a round room with mirrors, windows, cow hide and pink and red wall paper.

Sams daughter Morgan was so excited (particularly about her toy horse that she had been given that morning).  Rhea (Sams sister ) and Sheila (Sams mum) were there too and we had a great morning! Shan (the make up artist) was amazing how she had applied such great make up that looked so natural.

Sams dress was from Burberry which was stunning and the dress was perfect for her and the shoeswell Christian Louboutins in exactly the same shade as the dress this was obviously meant to be.

Damian was slightly more wary of the camera but I was still able to put him at his ease and took some natural shots of him throughout the day.

The ceremony and the rest of the day was fabulous!  The weather perfect slight cloud but warm and then the sun was streaming down late afternoon as the wedding breakfast took place under a large canopy.  I felt that I was in the mediterranean some where!

The evening reception took place back in the room where the ceremony had taken place an amazing transformation!

I have many images from this shoot as I really wanted to tell the story of the day and of their great love for one another they are a very special couple!

Wishing Sam and Damian a very happy life together and with Morgan too all the very best for their new life in Washington D.C later this year.
