A little over a year ago I shot a wedding just before Christmas for Sophie and Nick (coincidentally I did some business profile photos for Sophie last week). A year later almost to the day, I was shooting the wedding of fellow Kiwi Alan – he’s been my massage therapist for many years, putting me back to rights after every wedding or job I shoot, evening out the muscle knots from carrying heavy camera bags for hours. Now I was shooting him and his lovely bride Caroline!
Alan was for years the driver of the New Zealand Olympic bobsleigh team, so there were a lot of big strapping guys – no problem for them to lift the slight frame of Caroline in the air (see further down the post). I had suggested they pick her up, but they got a little carried away (or should I say Caroline was – sorry, weak pun).
We started at Threadneedles for getting ready shots, then to Marylebone Old Town Hall for the ceremony, then back to Threadneedles again. The weather was pretty rubbish but nearby Leadenhall Market saved the day again and the interior of Threadneedles Hotel is stunning. The lovely flowers were by Sophie (a different Sophie). And if you’re looking for a massage therapist, personal trainer or life coach, Alan is your man.
