I met Sarah and James a few months back, when we met to discuss their wedding photography at a nice eatery in town. On first impressions, they didn't seem the type to go for a Zombie themed engagement shoot, or a wedding reception filled with old medicine bottles, or even a magician doing tricks after the wedding meal for that matter. But they are. After I got the email about the zombie shoot (WHAT?!!?!!) Sarah then let me know that their wedding theme was "1920s Apothecary Medicine". I know, how cool is that??
They're also super lovely people. Case in point: Sarah gave me two presents for Elmer when we met up the second time. She just fished them out of a cupboard and handed them over. (Note to future clients - I will probably take more photographs at your wedding if you give me Elmer presents.)
The wedding was a long day, I started at 8am, and after a break in the afternoon went on until midnight!!! Mind you, if you're going to pack in getting ready, a drive in a vintage car, a wedding, a drinks reception, a tea ceremony, a picnic in the park, a relax, another hair-do, canapes and magician tricks, a multi-course meal, a zombie slideshow, speeches, a magical show, drinks and dancing... you've got to start pretty early..
Lush. Jonathan Usher the magician by the way - VERY funny. If you're having a magical-apothecary themed wedding (!) he's your man.
Also, if you need bridesmaids, I suggest getting Emma and Liz - they were excellent! They even looked after me!
Nb: A couple of Liana shots above - James as he sees Sarah walking up the aisle, and Sarah's mum smiling after they leave the church. Nice captures :)
Right, I'm off to bed.
