It was lovely to be back at Bisham Abbey, on the banks of the river Thames near Marlow, Buckinghamshire, to photograph the wedding of Raíssa and Will. It was a very international wedding; Raíssa is from Brazil, and had until recently been living in Canada, and Will is English. Families and friends from all over the world attended.
Raíssa and Will chose my full coverage of up to ten hours of their day so I was able to tell the photographic story of the whole day. This started with photos of Raíssa and her bridesmaids getting ready at Bisham Abbey, right through their beautiful ceremony until after their first dance. Unusually, Raíssa and Will entered together for their ceremony in the stunning Warwick Room at Bisham Abbey. So it was quite a moment when Will spotted his stunning bride coming down the staircase. It was a glorious day in a long, hot summer, so Raíssa, Will and their guests were able to make full use of Bisham’s spectacular grounds and stretch of the river Thames. We were treated to a stunning sunset across the river late in the evening, just before their first dance.
