Wedding photography on film
Emi first got in touch with me when I was still in California. An American, she’d met Pete on Twitter and they fell in love. A couple of years long distance, which I know is not easy, and our American girl made it to England! We bonded immediately over our shared love for The 1975, and I knew tears would fall based on their song choices!
I was right, of course. Emi looked stunning as her dads walked her down the aisle to ‘About You’, from their latest album ‘Being Funny in a Foreign Language’. Many tears for everyone during the emotion-filled vows, including myself. Luckily I had the camera to hide behind! The happy couple walked back to ‘Me and You Together Song’, which was perfect for them.
The Patron Saint of Cats
Dragon Hall is a Grade-1 listed medieval merchant’s trading hall from the 1400s. Absolutely blows my mind the architecture of some of these venues! Its a lovely venue, but the real charm is the church opposite. The earliest surviving English language works written by a woman were by Julian of Norwich, who lived in seclusion at the church. It is believed that she developed a close relationship with her cat. It is said that Julian and her cat anchored the Light during one of the darkest periods of history. She is now known as the patron saint of cats. For Emi and Pete, and their love of their furry felines, this was meant to be.
Film Wedding Photography – 35mm and medium format
As always, I’m so grateful to my couples for trusting in the ‘non wedding, wedding photographer’ process. Part of that magic is capturing the day on analogue film, for a bit of instant nostalgia and a bit of anarchy. I used a variety of 35mm and medium format cameras, but my personal favourites are from the Nikon L35AF 35mm.
A few weeks after the wedding I was at The 1975 concert in Finsbury Park. I don’t like to take photos or videos at gigs, unless I’m working. Nothing worse than a sea of phones! The one video I did take turned out to be very special. I got home, watched my video. Upon pausing it, I zoomed in and there were Emi and Pete! In a crowd of 50,000, and only one video, its incredible my lovely couple were there.
