Balance is hugely important to me. I feel a responsibility as a wedding blogger – there has to be reality on here. As much as I love a styled photoshoot, and I do enjoy the fine art style of wedding blogs, it’s the reality of a wedding that thrills me. There’s the beautiful bride, the gorgeous details and all the elegant styling of course. But on the day, there’s the excitement. There’s that pure excitement and overwhelm and the buzz and nervousness of a wedding day. I’m sure you’ve heard other couples say it all goes by in a blur – I know I have. It’s a whirlwind of people, of faces and hugs and having the best day ever with everyone you love all at once.
Let’s start the week with a reminder of how amazing things used to be…. and a reminder that they WILL get back to normal. We don’t know when, but there WILL be hugs and parties and gatherings of favourite people and love and romance and just pure joy with bunches of happy humans all celebrating together. Hang in there, everyone… In the meantime let’s look back on a super glamorous and FUN wedding with our fabulous friends and London wedding photographers York Place Studios. Gorgeous Ally & Alex’s black tie wedding took place at Hedsor House – and despite the rain this gorgeous pair had a BLAST! I love how the story of their wedding builds in excitement and joy through their wedding photographs: from the nerves and closeness of Ally’s bridal prep through the romantic ceremony, super classy reception and the amazing party vibes at the end of the day. This is a beauty of a wedding!
We’re all rethinking weddings right now I reckon. All the preconceptions of what a wedding “should” be are being flung out of windows and we’re downsizing while shifting the focus from colour palettes and decor onto family and the luxury of just being together. So as always, when a York Place Studios wedding comes along, I’m thrilled because that refreshing, different, glorious perspective shines brightly.
How beautiful your wedding looks is kind of a minor detail compared to how much fun you all have. In years to come you’ll remember the laughter, the love, the FEELING of that day more than any pretty piece of decor. That’s the side of Olivia & Elliott’s amazing London wedding we’re sharing here – the overwhelming happiness, the emotions and the sheer joy of a wedding day. They celebrated at TT Liquor Whisky Bar, and London wedding photographers York Place Studios captured the vibe of their wedding BRILLIANTLY.
I LOVE a good York Place Studios wedding. They’re the best possible reminder that a wedding is about love, connection and stringing together the most amazing, life-changing moments. Style is something that comes naturally: it’s a flow, a feeling, and it comes from your personalities rather than from the fluff you put on wedding tables. Michelle and Stephen’s Town Hall Hotel wedding day is just incredible: they’re a stunning couple with effortless style – and I love every single, precious moment. It’s all captured by our fabulous friends and London wedding photographers York Place Studios.
