Not so long ago in August 2015, I was privileged to photograph a special Blessing Ceremony at the Methodist Church on Derby Road, South Woodford, E18. After the blessing ceremony, I shot up to the Prince Regent Hotel in Chigwell for the after-party reception in the garden, to photograph and capture some natural portraits.
The couple weren’t due to go on honeymoon until the following weekend, so I made a point of making the portraits available to them 48 hours after their blessing ceremony, and I left them to choose their favourite memories for their album at their leisure. A couple of days later, they gave me their album selection and before they went away, I retouched, designed and sent them an album proof for their approval. Job done!
Naturally, their album was beautifully made by OneVision and ready for them within a week of their return from honeymoon.
They were such a lovely couple to work with, and they have very kindly agreed to let me showcase a small selection of portraits from their blessing ceremony and reception here on the blog. I’d also like to say a big ‘thank you and hug’ for their excellent review/feedback on Google.
These are really my favourites (and I know, some are theirs).
