A wedding isn’t about finding THE dress and spending more on it than anything else. It’s not about the perfect colour palette, or about spending months crafting decorations or personal keepsakes for all of your guests. (Although all of those things can be fun and lovely if that’s what you choose to do!) But really, a wedding is ALL about love, and it’s about family, and joy, and celebration. It’s about sharing that moment when the two of you decided to take on the world together, for ever. And yes, you can do that with just the two of you, or in a micro wedding with just a handful of the people you love most of all in the world. Or you can share it with 50 people, or 500. Never listen to anyone who tells you what your wedding ‘should’ be – because all it needs to be is YOURS.
Phoebe & Jarrod’s Islington wedding day is so beautifully personal I can’t stop scrolling up, and back, and up again through all of their images. The love is so strong, the happiness sings from my screen. I adore the summer flowers and how lovely their outfits are: Phoebe’s white dress is beautiful without being ‘just’ a standard wedding dress. I love this. Jarrod’s shirt and trousers with a linen jacket are special for the occasion without being overly formal – he looks relaxed, comfortable and both look 100% THEM.
A wedding like Phoebe & Jarrod’s has to be photographed in a fitting style, and none are better at this than our fabulous friends York Place Studios. Their authentic, street photography-inspired wedding images tell the story of a day with every moment captured. Because it’s not about the place settings, or the wedding favours, or about posing and smiling daintily into the camera: weddings are about grinning from ear to ear, catching up with your most special people and laughing fit to burst, then catching your wife or husband’s eye and feeling that overwhelm of love.
And wedding photography? That’s about capturing these memories so perfectly you’ll look back at your wedding photos in 10, 20, 50 years’ time and remember everything, and everyone, just as you all were on that special day.
