We love the opportunity to shoot in new locations and when we heard Lydia and Chris’s plans we were instantly very excited about their day! We’ve shot in London a few times now but the Houses of Parliament added a little extra pressure onto the never-ending traffic and people in the city!
Their ceremony took place at the beautiful Westminster Church where, 106 years prior, Winston Churchill was married to Clementine Hozier. It was a short trip across the road to their reception venue at Houses of Parliament where we (and all their guests!) had to be security checked and X-rayed. In the morning Chris looked after their daughter Clementine while he grabbed a late breakfast with his groomsmen, meanwhile Lydia and her maid of honour prepared in style with a hotel room overlooking some of London’s most iconic buildings. We always love how you can tell how in love a couple are on a wedding day, we follow them so closely and looking through our cameras all day we loved just how happy they obviously are together, the glances throughout the day and the smiles on each of their faces.
As we braved the horrendous evening traffic coming out of London, ready for our 4 and a half hour drive home, the thing we talked about more than anything wasn’t the buildings, or crowds or incredible weather, it was just how perfect for each other Lydia and Chris clearly are.
