Rachael & Nima

Just over a year ago, I was asked to photograph the wedding of a beautiful couple, Rachael & Nima, who were to be married at Brocket Hall, in Hertfordshire. Before I knew it, the last weekend of August this year was upon us and it was time to head south.

I wasn’t sure I’d be able to photograph the preparation of both the bride and groom that same morning, due to the distance between their two locations, so I enlisted the help of another photographer, Fiona, to cover the groom’s side of things as he got ready for the big day at the venue in the countryside just outside Welwyn Garden City. Meanwhile, I headed over to Rachael’s house on the north side of London to see how she and her bridesmaids were getting on.

The atmosphere was warm, welcoming and excitable…everything you want to see on a day like this! In fact, it stayed that way throughout the entire day, getting more enjoyable as the day went on. The sun was out all day, meaning a reflector came into play. I feel it was more beneficial to the smaller shots (individuals / small groups) as it required a strong amount of light to cater for the larger groups, and this wasn’t the most popular technique amongst the occasionally-squinting guests.

Despite the huge number of people in attendance, many of whom don’t get to see them all that often, Rachael & Nima were an absolute joy to work with…they and their family made such a pressurised job hugely enjoyable and were enthusiastic about any pictures I wanted to take, which is always a bonus from a photographer’s point of view. And on top of that, they were an ever-so-slightly attractive couple…you know, just a bit!!!

Having recently presented them with their finished, edited images, I can now post a small selection of pictures from their day…
