Wedding >> Shelby & Rob’s Bijou London Winter Wedding

I’m excited to be able to share this lovely bijou wedding I second shot for my friend Cris Rossi a few weeks ago.  Shelby & Rob had such a fun and laid back day, and I think it really shows in the photographs!

We turned up early to catch Shelby’s bridal preparations, and I have to confess, bridal prep is one of my favourite parts of the entire day.   I love all that pent-up emotion and nervous excitement, and the way that everything is laid out and ready to go.

I’m not very knowledgeable about flowers and I have no idea what this type of flower is called but doesn’t it make for a really unique boutonniere?

And, as a cat and dog lover, Shelby and Rob’s house was an absolute blast to photograph….how cute?

This is one of my favourite photos – Shelby and her flower girls calmly having a game of ring a ring of roses while waiting for the Registrar’s interview.

Even though it was crisply cold day, all the guests gave us their best smiles for the group photos….

Well, almost all the guests. 😉  (but it WAS rather cold)

Fortunately it wasn’t long before everyone moved to the evening reception which was gloriously cosy and candlelit.

Ruby joined in for the first dance…

And it wasn’t long before the kids took over the rest of the dancefloor. Love it.

 

Thanks to Cris for having me second shoot and a big, big thank you to Shelby & Rob for letting me share their day with them.  You guys are so much fun and I wish you every happiness in the future!
