When I was approached by Anna & Jimmy about photographing their wedding my brief was straight forward – keep it simple, unobtrusive and light-hearted. They were planning a small and intimate ceremony at a local church in Barnes followed by a summer garden party at their house nearby. Both lead busy professional lives and with a young baby daughter they wanted to ensure that their wedding day was as relaxed as possible.
On a boiling hot day in June I arrived as friends and family were erecting some of the many home-made touches around the house and in the garden whilst the excellent Gatherers caterers were setting up inside.
This wedding was a first for me in that bride, Anna, and her bridesmaid sister Polly are identical twins in both looks and manner. It was lovely to see two people have such a special relationship with each other and I was thankful that telling them apart was made easier by Anna being in a white dress!
Whilst I describe myself as a documentary photographer I’m not the kind of person that hides in the bushes like a sniper – however on this occasion both the caterers and I could be find navigating the narrow garden borders and ducking around trees to get to where we needed to go.
In keeping with the brief I documented their wedding in a pure reportage style with just a single formal shot of close family outside and I love the feeling of intimacy and joy in the images.
