Jemma & David // City Chic London Wedding Photography

It’s always lovely as photographer to get recommendations, luckily most of my weddings are from my wonderful bride and grooms recommending me to their friends and family. This London city wedding was no different – I photographed Jemma’s sister wedding in Wales and now I’ve been lucky enough to photograph Jemma and David’s wedding in London, Chiswick.

Jemma and her girls got ready at The Parlour, on Chiswick High Street – a beautifully decorated beauty salon with amazing retro style, the girls from the salon styled Jemma’s hair into a stunning fishtail with a vintage twist unlike any wedding hair-do I’ve photographed. It was topped off perfectly with a lace hair piece that had Jemma made herself.

After bubbly and cake at The Parlour, the party headed back to the Hotel to put the finishing touches to their make up and I got my first glimpse of Jemma’s breathtaking wedding dress, a one-shouldered fitted number with a lace up back and a fishtail kick. After giggles with Abi, the cutest flower girl there ever was we dodged the spontaneous heavy rain shower and raced to Ealing Town Hall where a nervous David waited for his bride to be.  The smiles on their faces, says it all and I got the most perfect first kiss photograph 🙂

We stopped off at the historic Gunnersbury park for their Bride & Groom shots. The day before I’d scouted out some ideas for photos and discovered a hidden gem – a community kitchen garden in between ruins of the historic old building and the over grown long grass. Despite insisting they were no good in front of the camera , Jemma and David turned out to be absolute pros – so natural, so happy and so in love which made the photos a dream to take.

As the evening came the newly weds stepped out for their first dance – to John legends ‘All of me’ (to which I almost cried) with a beautiful dance they’d practised – effortlessly sweeping across the dance floor!

Thank you so much to you both for asking me to be your photographer. I’ve just got to keep my fingers crossed for the third sister…
