Chiara and Justin have known each other for just over two and a half years. Justin asked Chiara to marry him in Long Island in the summertime, which is pretty groovy. Chiara is Italian and Justin is Irish – they have invited over 150 guests to their big day, which by all accounts is pretty tame for an Italian and Irish wedding!
Chiara really wanted to have an Autumn pre wedding photoshoot in a park, so I suggested Richmond Park (it’s literally on my doorstep, which means I know all the best places for quiet spaces away from the public).
I love meeting my couples for the first time on a photoshoot, it really gives us all the opportunity to get to know each other and for me to find out more about their special day.
They have chosen to get married at Hackney Town Hall next February, a venue I love capturing images at with it’s amazing Art Deco rooms. They will be holding a 1920’s style wedding celebration at the super cool Dalston Heights – bring on February 13th 2016!
