Nicola and Marco kindly asked me to photograph their very international wedding at St Michael’s Church in Chiswick and the beautiful Oakley Court Hotel near Windsor, Berkshire. An 11am ceremony in west London meant a very early start to try to beat the Friday morning traffic into London to cover Nicola and her bridesmaids getting ready in their flat in Chiswick. Then, after the beautiful flowers arrived, I headed off to the church to catch Marco meeting and greeting his guests, many of whom had come from Italy and other European countries, and as far afield as Canada.
After a beautiful and moving ceremony in the church, Nicola and Marco braved a particularly impressive confetti run before heading off to Oakley Court in a classic white Roller. The bride, groom and I went for a very enjoyable walk and relaxed photo session, making the most of Oakley Court’s grounds and fabulous setting by the Thames before they returned to their guests to celebrate their happy day and enjoy their wedding breakfast and speeches in the Windsor Suite.
As the evening guests arrived it was time for Nicola and Marco to cut their cake and bring the formalities to a close with their first dance. Thanks to Nicola and Marco for a great day.
