We are incredibly fortunate to get to photograph couples in some pretty epic surroundings in the UK and beyond – Various locations in England, Wales, Germany and the US have all been covered so far. Amazing venues.. Cathedrals, Colleges (Eton!).. the grand, the small intimate affairs, garden receptions, they all have their own individual character.
We were absolutely made-up when Joe and Steve asked us to be photographers for their wedding in Tower Bridge. It is an iconic structure that most of us grew up loving!
We started the day by meeting Joe and Steve who were getting ready together at the Tower Hotel just across from where they would soon be wed! After grabbing some detail shots (We still can’t believe those button holes aren’t real!) and some formals we headed over with them to Tower bridge. The ceremony was lovely, emotional and seemed to fly by! Next up their portraits.. We were delighted to be told that we could access some areas of Tower Bridge that are not accessible to the public. We were blown away by the it all, even though we had to co-ordinate some pretty tricky staircases to get the best areas – It was definitely worth it!
Once the drinks reception had concluded everyone made their way down to the Thames for the group photo – always a bit of a challenge! Brollies in hand all the guests then moved onto the second half of the day which was being held on the River Thames. J+S had hired The Erasmus as the setting for their sit down meal and evening reception and it was perfect. The speeches, first dance and the party were so full of fun and laughter! As the day progessed we saw an opportunity to grab some evening portraits which we rate as some of our faves from the day!
