With some free time on my hands, I find myself playing catch up on wedding blog posts I had no idea I hadn’t done a write up on and today, it’s all about Melissa and Junior’s fantastic summer wedding ceremony.
St Mark Dalston Church in East London was the scenic location for the couple’s wedding and I can honestly say that since the first time I photographed a wedding there, I've always wanted to go back because getting married at this venue is like a fairytale owing to the beauty of the interior and the fulfilment I get as a wedding photographer when working with great couples in such great locations
I spent the morning photographing Melissa and her bridal party at home as they got ready for the day. I really enjoy photographing the bridal preparation because it serves as the opening chapter to the wonderful and exciting things to expect on a wedding day.
Whilst Junior was hidden away inside the church venue, Melissa had finished getting ready and was en route to the church in a fantastic vintage Rolls Royce car. Needless to say, It was a delight to photograph all those fantastic moments during the wedding ceremony at St Mark Dalston church.
Melissa and Junior shared some photo moments with the guest after the ceremony as well as made time for their own bridal portrait before proceeding to the wedding reception at St Mark’s hall. I always enjoy summer weddings and they never fail to offer plenty of opportunities to photograph the bride and groom. The day was bright and sunny, which was really nice to see, and it made taking the photographs a joy on the day.
There was a great atmosphere and vibe during the wedding reception as family and guests listened to the speeches which took place just after the meals had been served.
Once the guests had finished their meals and the speeches were over, the celebrations really took off when the music began and guests had a blast on the dance floor.
As well as having a thoroughly fantastic day, it was just a joy to photograph Melissa and Junior's wedding and I wish them all the best.
