A Beautiful Outdoor Multicultural Wedding At Pennyhill park Hotel
Tracey and Tarik married in an outdoor ceremony at Pennyhill Park hotel back in July. Despite all the years I’ve been shooting weddings, this was my first at this venue literally 3 minutes from my home.
The wedding was a truly international affair with the day bringing together their mixed heritage of English, Nigerian, German and Syrian. Guests flew in from all over the globe to celebrate with a lively, warm, and utterly fabulous day!
The weather was good which meant the couple’s outdoor ceremony was able to go ahead, much to everyone’s delight. Then there were canapes, bubbles, lots and lots of photos, and later some pretty fancy moves on the dancefloor.
Lets just talk about the details here, firstly Tracey’s total transformation before my eyes. I loved her amazing hair by Charis. I swooned over her frock with diamante detail and those Oscar De Le Renta shoes were divine. Tracey’s bridesmaids; Patricia, Nadja and Chanan looked so beautiful and did an amazing job.
Tarik, his best man Maxamillion and the guys looked very cool in their blue suits. Tracey’s bouquet was heavenly (I took rather too many photographs of it), as were the large vases of pastel flowers for the outdoor area, and the beautiful arrangements inside. My lovely friend Steph of Fairy Nuff Flowers came up trumps!
Tracey and Tarik are every wedding photographer’s dream couple. They have felt like friends from the start, and have been so warm, kind and fun to be with. Their generosity of spirit and total trust allowed me to capture their day with a mix of reportage (some of my favourite ever images), and super stylish shots of them together just being themselves and loving their special day. Upon seeing their completed gallery they took the time to send me a little video message to express their delight – so sweet.
Thank you guys for reminding me just why I do this job. J x
