Ashley and Alastair’s wedding was held at the iconic Le Gothique Restaurant at the magnificent Royal Victoria Patriotic Building in Wandsworth, London. The wedding was full of romance. At the same time, everybody was relaxed. From the wedding ceremony to the beautiful throwing of confetti, the event was just wonderful.
Before the big event, I turned up at Ashley’s hotel so I could photograph the bridal prep. I was able to take some beautiful photos of her and of her bridesmaids. One of my favourite photos of Ashley getting ready was taken when the make-up artist applied some hairspray to Ashley’s hair.
To check out the location, I had visited Le Gothique at the Royal Victoria Patriotic a couple of days beforehand. I was most impressed by how beautiful it was. On the wedding day, the venue looked even more romantic and impressive. The ceremony was both intimate and relaxed. It allowed me to capture some beautiful moments.
After the wedding ceremony we took some lovely group photos. Everybody was chilled and happy and we captured some more fun moments with the bride and groom and the bridesmaids.
One of my favourite moments during the wedding was when Alistair handled a wedding sword. I loved how he was flinging it around while giving his speech. He even used it for the cake cutting which made everybody laugh. And OMG: the wedding dancing was so beautiful and even had one or two guests rolling around on the dance floor pretending to be Jimi Hendrix. What an amazing day. I wish Ashley and Alistair all the very best for the future.
