“You captured our day just perfectly, I could not have asked for greater pictures!”
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph Maike and Akshay’s Merchant Taylor’s Hall wedding in London. It was a day absolutely full to the brim with love and laughter, with guests travelling from as far as India to help the happy couple celebrate their marriage. From the moment I arrived for the preparations Maike was cool, calm and collected. Akshay was no different and it was clear that the tone for the day had been set.
The hall itself is just stunning. I could use a whole host of adjectives but none really do justice to how beautiful the room really is. During the ceremony, one of the couple’s close friends performed a wonderful song set to acoustic guitar whilst friends and family blew bubbles all around the room. I’m not sure if the bubbles were mainly for the kids but they certainly kept the adults amused too!
The courtyard played host to the the afternoon reception before heading back into the hall for dinner and dancing.
Aside from a couple of family pictures with Akshay’s Grandma (who had flown over from India) it was pure documentary wedding photography all day. Here are a selection of my favourite pictures telling the story of Maike and Akshay’s Merchant Taylor’s Hall wedding. Please do give the couple some love in the comments section below and feel free to share this on your favourite social media sites too.
