I had the absolute delight of shooting the very sumptuous wedding of Mr and Miss Smith (now Mr and Mrs Smith – how convenient not to have to change your name!). With Teva being an event planner in Brisbane a wedding presented no challenge to her. I’ve never seen such a slickly organised wedding – nor such a calm bride, which goes to show that if you fail to prepare you prepare to fail. Or something like that. I’m definitely working on it…
On their last visit to the UK they came and visited me at my flat in Primrose Hill and we did the engagement shoot in the garden (see here) and I discovered to my delight that Teva is a natural in front of the camera – and such fabulous cheekbones!
Southend Barns in Chichester is a relatively new venue and already proving hugely popular which doesn’t surprise me. Every part of the venue has been beautifully designed with lots of quirky styling and attention to detail and comfort. And the staff were fantastically helpful at all times. Given that it had been snowing the weekend before we were lucky that the weather warmed up enough to enjoy the outdoor areas with guests drinking mulled wine and eating hot roasted chestnuts around the open fires.
Kate at Vintage Style Hire had pulled out the stops and combined with Teva’s stunning touches the barn itself was a gorgeous feast of flowers (supplied by Violets and Velvet) and personal treasures and messages of love to be enjoyed by family and friends.
Food was supplied by Field and Fork.
Jo Reid (Make up) and Bethany Alden (Hairstylist) from Blush had the girls looking stunning. Some of the pictures of Teva simply took my breath away. I even took the chance to take a few pictures of Meqa, Teva’s sister, for her website.
