We got to know Katie and Iain over the last couple of years so we couldn’t quite believe it when their wedding day was upon us, but there we found ourselves, in the thick of central London surrounded by Prudential London ride fans!! Our own wedding was also on a day where a ton of London roads were closed, so we were charged and ready for this, and the amazing wedding coordinator Sarah Clifford made sure that everything went to plan!
Katherine and Iain crossed paths at Durham university, where they both joined the ballroom dancing society; a skill that would come in handy for their most beautiful first dance, eight years later!! As you know, the couples that are drawn to our photography are brilliant, fun and lovely people, and these two are no exception! It means that we shoot such a range of very special weddings, so on Katherine and Iain’s wedding day, we lapped up the Westminster Abbey vibe where these two got married (in the pretty church next door).
Yes, we were those people allowed in by the guards in red coats, meanwhile being papped by many spectators… I mean, MANY!! It all added to the celebration of the day, and being in Parliament Square suited Katie and Iain perfectly, with their interests in history and politics between them. In fact, Katherine is a curator at Chartwell (yeah, I had to Google it the first time too… ignoramus number one over here), hence Sir Winston Churchill making a rather serious appearance in the photos too. Guests went on to a warm welcome and an elegant reception at East India Club in St. James’ Square, ending with some brilliant beats from The Distractions Band!
With a minimoon in Sicily, Katherine and Iain must be on cloud nine right around now… in amongst all the pasta and prosecco, if we know anything about Italy. Thank you both so much for sharing your wedding, and engagement, and lives with us… it’s been the utmost pleasure to follow your journey, and we’ll happily continue to do so! x
