Amy and Graeme enquired through my website for their Richmond Upon Thames wedding photographer and I was thrilled. The best part about meeting Amy and Graeme…they both have the most infectious smiles and laughter. We met at a cool New Zealand owned coffee shop called Butter Beans in Richmond Upon Thames for breakfast to discuss their plans. Their pre wedding photoshoot was held around the river banks of the Thames in Richmond, bith big smiles all round. They had been together for 11 years before Graeme (finally) popped the question in 2014, I did not believe them as they just do not look old enough.
A beautiful, small intimate ceremony that was held at Richmond Registry Office. Considering Amy and Graeme have known each other for so long, it was quite emotional. Amy looked stunning in her long white dress. Their daugther looked gorgeous as one of the bridemaids and the sun had his hat on. The registrar was a jolly fine man and made everyone feel at ease.
A favourite venue of mine, the gorgeous Richmond Hill Hotel. Why do I like it so much? It a classic Georgian Hotel with some parts dating back to 1726. The corridors and rooms are a great backdrop for some dramtaic photography. Amy and Graeme love black and white photography so it made my job easy to capture this. There are the most amazing view across for this hotel with Petersham Meadows in the background – truly stunning.
Great weather, fantastic mix of close family and friends made this wedding special. Lovely touches on the tables with hand wriiten notes for all the family. We even had some time to take a wander across to Petersham Meadows to take some images with Amy’s favourite backdrop. There was not a dry eye when their daughter Rebecca joined them for their first dance.
Amy, Graeme and I met up a few weeks after the wedding. They presented me with a bouquet of flowers, some wine and their great big smiles. So very kind of them – they were made for each other. Blessed to have been part of their day…congratulations Mr & Mrs Jarman.
