Becky and Matt’s beautiful wedding at Winchester House, Putney
My dear friend Becky tied the knot with Matt in May this year at a beautiful wedding down in the big smoke! I have known Becky since we were about twelve years old. She has been a wonderful friend over the years so you can imagine how thrilled I was to be asked to capture her big day for her! When Becky met Matt she soon realised she had found her soul mate. It quickly became apparent that these two would spend the rest of their lives together.
Becky and Matt got married at All Saints Church, Fulham. Its tall ceilings and grand stain glass windows are just beautiful and made a dramatic backdrop for wedding photos. Becky looked stunning in a classic Lusan Mandongus vintage dress from Teokath, Wimbledon. The fun really began afterwards when we all headed to nearby Winchester House, Putney on the river. It made for a very interesting five minute walk in three and a half inch heels with a very heavy camera bag and tripod!
Winchester House sits in an enviable position on the riverside. It is a quintessentially old English building boasting a beautiful garden, just perfect for an intimate wedding reception. The unpredictable British summer weather behaved itself for once and although a little grey, the rain held off. The guests were able to enjoy mouth watering canapés and champagne in the garden overlooking the river Thames (catering by AM & PM Catering). Becky and the bridesmaids looked fabulous and we had a lot of fun taking the photos. I managed to steal a very special ten minutes with the bride and groom down by the riverside to capture some romantic moments for the wedding album… they look very happy!
The evening reception moved inside where we gathered in a beautiful room upstairs. Romantic low lighting and tasteful decor created perfect ambience for some very heartfelt and emotional speeches (yes I did have a few tears in my eyes behind the lens!). Becky and Matt then cut the cake and soon got to work partying on the dance floor! The celebrations continued until the early hours and everyone had a fantastic time.
Becky and Matt, thank you so much for letting me be part of your big day, it was a real honour. I am sure you will have a very happy future together, lots of love x x x
