Nancy and Tamir had a beautiful coptic orthodox wedding in London. I’d been looking forward to this wedding for about a year as I knew it would have strong cultural influences from Nancy’s Egyptian family. I was not disappointed! The day was such fun, both of their families were so welcoming and I was completely camera happy. The day started at St Marks coptic church in Kensington. We were met by several priests and what seemed like hundreds of people all there for the wedding. The ceremony had several parts to it, not only did they exchange rings but they wore crowns and Tamir wore a long cloak. Have a look at the images and see what you think, I will blog this in two parts as there were so many lovely photos. Many thanks to Damian prestidge who came along and worked with me during the ceremony.

After the ceremony, we went off and took some portraits in a very busy and hot St James park:

Lee and Helen got married in Weston manor hotel, which is a beautiful old English country manor in Oxford. Lee is a fireman and they made a wonderful arch with their hammers for the bride and groom to walk through on there way back down the aisle as Mr & Mrs. This was one of the most emotional weddings I have photographed, they were both so choked up that they got their words all mixed up and ended up in a fit of giggles.

I love this photo:

The rain stayed off just long enough for us to take some photos and to make the most of the beautiful English surroundings:
