29/12/20Wedding Photography at The Lensbury
Aimee and Jon at St. Raphael’s, Surbiton, and The Lensbury
Every year I learn or realise something new as a wedding photographer. One of the many things I learnt all over again this year is that there are many different elements to a wedding day and many reasons why people get married.
Overwhelmingly those who chose to go ahead this summer with a small wedding within the current restrictions quite simply wanted to get married. Overwhelmingly too they wanted to have a party to celebrate their wedding with their friends and family – but that could wait until 2021 or 2022, that was different. What really mattered was actually getting married.
It was a day full of gorgeous moments where the love between the two of them shone above everything…
Aimee and Jon had always planned to get married in this church this summer – and to have their reception at The Lensbury on the banks of the Thames. Both happened, but on a different date and on a different scale to that originally planned.
It was a day full of gorgeous moments where the love between the two of them shone above everything. The pictures here tell the story of their day – the fabulous church, how beautiful Aimee looked, and just how happy they are together. But you’ll also notice some masks – whilst I wouldn’t want them to dominate, most Brides and Grooms this year told me to include some shots with them in to record the day as it was and to look back on in the future as a reminder of this very different year.
A very big thank you to The Lensbury for being so adaptable and flexible – their’s was model of discrete but attentive service. But above all thank you to Aimee and Jon, I look forward to seeing you and your families again back at The Lensbury next summer – with all your guests this time.
