Stefanie & Alex's Story | A Winter Elopement in London

 

I shot my first London elopement over 6 years ago, and ever since then, I've been lucky enough to photograph elopements every year. They are magical to document; intimate, personal, and romantic. 

Stefanie & Alex may have had a bitterly cold day for their wedding, but the light was glorious. It was hazy and golden, soft and and mystical. The perfect backdrop for the day. Stefanie & Alex wanted to incorporate parts of London into their images, but not "touristy" or "typical" backdrops, so we decided on Hampstead and the Pergola Hill & Gardens. Both some of my favourite spots in London. It's always a privilege to document a couple's elopement; the only ones to witness their marriage and their first moments as husband & wife. Samuel and I were also asked to be their witnesses which is even more of a privilege. I am so grateful to Stefanie & Alex for asking me to be there on their wedding day and I am thrilled they love their photographs..."The images are beautiful and exactly what we had hoped to capture on our wedding day. We can't thank you enough for photographing and being a part of our special day...."

Hair and makeup were by the ever talented Kirsty McCall and she did an amazing job as always!

I am currently working on my favourite images of 2016 which will be coming to the blog soon. I am also looking forward to capturing my second wedding of 2017 on Saturday before a bit of time off to recuperate! xx
