Zac & Jodie’s Big Beautiful Greek Fusion Wedding

Runnymede wedding photography On a warm and sunny day in May, Zac and Jodie married at The Runnymede On Thames hotel. This was a real fusion wedding with the marriage ceremony being followed by a Greek Orthodox blessing. It was a day  full of tradition, symbolism and the appreciation of both cultures. What’s more, the couple really do have the nicest families, and it was just one of those weddings that felt great to be a part of, and so much fun to capture. My day began with capturing Jodie’s final preparations. Jodie is so beautiful and naturally elegant, she also bears more than a passing resemblance to Angelina Jolie. Makeup artist Mel and I just couldn’t keep our eyes off her! *girl crush* Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-1Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-3beautiful bridal makeupJodie & Zac 25.5.14-4Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-5Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-11Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-12Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-14Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-13Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-9Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-10Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-17Jodie & Zac 25.5.14-18 I loved Jodie’s Pronovias ‘Dietrich’ dress. She told me that she had trained as a dancer, but at the point of starting to audition for West End shows, sadly had to give it up. The white feathers, reminiscent of Swan Lake, were therefore the perfect detail.

It was not what I was expecting it at all. There were rituals and prayers, but there was also great humour, and I’m talking hysterics!

It’s hard to imagine, but this part of Runnymede was completely submerged during the January floods.  We couldn’t have asked for a better location for some beautiful couples portraits.
