ida & sam - kensal green, london wedding photographer.

ida & sam are such a loving, fun and relaxed couple, i felt truly honored to be part of their special day.

when they contacted me to ask about shooting their wedding, i was completely captured by their email, telling me of how ida was only meant to be over from Sweden for 6 months but after meeting sam in the first few weeks, she knew she would not be leaving. ida told me of how sam proposed in the grounds of the beautiful kensal green cemetery as in his words it is a place “full of eternal love”. they were keen to include the cemetery in their special day, wanting to meet before their ceremony, just the two of them. so we chatted through their plans over a coffee and we decided to build in a ‘first look’ within the grounds of the cemetery, to capture that special moment of them seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. they wanted to keep their wedding day as relaxed as possible and this way they got to spend time together before the day officially started, taking it all in and having the perfect start to what was a beautiful and very relaxed wedding day.

i was at the house to capture ida getting ready with her best friend, photographed her arriving at the cemetery in a taxi, took shots of sam awaiting his beautiful bride, and then shot the ‘first look’ moments as ida approached and sam then turned to see her for the first time in her dress and veil, it was truly wonderful and i am so glad they chose to take this opportunity. we then walked slowly together through cemetery and enjoyed the calmness and grandeur of the setting, ida and sam chatted, had time together before meeting all their guests, i recorded it all, it was just beautiful.

the paradise, in kensal green was their venue and it suited them perfectly. friends and family surrounded them as they exchanged vows. the celebrations followed, drinks, yummy food, speeches, confetti, cake and a party. i was with them until the first dance, the whole day was so much fun and a joy to be a part of. thank you ida and sam for allowing me in to your plans and for trusting me to capture your day.
