Now that the nights are drawing in and temperatures are most definitely on the downturn, it is lovely to look back to the summer and some of the blistering hot days we had. Was it really 90 degrees for this wedding Clapham and Battersea, south west London back in July?
I have been meaning to blog some more highlights from Charlotte’s wedding day in Clapham and Battersea. This was a special wedding for me as Charlotte is not only a good friend but also a wedding photographer herself – and an excellent one at that. No pressure there then!
You can see the first part of Charlotte’s wedding day in pictures here, which culminated with the elated couple leaving St Mary’s RC Church in Clapham after a beautiful and emotional service. Roman Catholic services are always a visual feast with so much atmosphere and ritual but this one was even more so as Charlotte and Justin’s faith is very central to their meeting, and outlook on life.
After the service, the 250 guests made their way to a private house in Batteresa, lent to the couple as a present for their wedding reception and celebrations. A beautiful Georgian setting with wonderful interior though most of the celebrations took place in the garden where Charlotte had gone to town on so many lovely touches – each bridesmaid and page boy carried a teddy bear and revelled in a themed Alice and Wonderland picnic. The flowers were wild and plentiful - old fashioned roses and peonies in beautiful antique vases, lanterns and all manner of decorations dangling from the trees and branches.
This reception was wholly original in every way: musically, vocally, aesthetically. And in the middle of it all, a couple very much in love and surrounded by their family and friends. In fact, I’m not sure you could get more in love than these two are.. their speeches and entrancing Klezmer dance with Justin serenading on the guitar were just one of the many highlights.. pure romance in the beautiful light of a glorious summer’s day.
Here are my favourite images from Charlotte and Justin’s wedding reception and celebrations in Clapham and Battersea, South London:
