Putney Wedding Photography

Putney Wedding Photography

The bride getting ready at home, a church ceremony, and then the small matter of all your guests getting to the reception, can often be a cause of considerable stress on the wedding day. But not on the occasion of Rachel and Jamie’s Putney wedding photography. With each location within walking distance of each other it set the tone for a very special and relaxed day, with each venue holding a particularly special place in the lives of the couple. Even a last minute change of plan and the bridesmaids choosing to walk to church, and a little confusion on the part of the taxi firm tasked with getting guests to the Thames Rowing Club for the reception, weren’t going to spoil the day. I’ve shot some of my favourite weddings at the Thames Rowing Club and this was no exception (check them out here) and see if you can spot below the moment Germany score a last minute winning goal in the group stage of the world cup!

Taking place on one of the first Saturdays in the long hot summer of 2018, we were blessed with glorious weather and light all day long. Perfect for what must have been the longest confetti line of all time and ideal for an evening stroll and a relaxed portrait session along the river Thames. It was also a real joy to be working again alongside one of my favourite videographers Elissa at Films in Bloom and for the first time working with the wedding planner Charlotte Nichols, who’s care and attention to detail were appreciated by everyone, and to know that Hand Fulla Soul would be playing in the evening was the icing on the cake, and sure enough they didn’t disappoint. Rachel and Jamie had hired me for my ‘Unlimited’ coverage and the evening flew by without the dance floor being empty for a second. We were even treated to an amazing finally as the band took to the dance floor with a rousing solo from the saxophone player!

“Just a quick message to say that we are overwhelmed by your photos. They are simply amazing and have captured the day brilliantly. Thank you so very much.” Rachel + Jamie
