NICK & KRISTINA'S LONDON WEDDING BLESSING | THE CINEMA MUSEUM, KENNINGTON
In May this year I was incredibly honoured to shoot Nick & Kristina's secret Elopement in Grenta Green, (you can see their elopement blog HERE), it's was such a beautiful day and I loved being able to capture that special moment, for them to be able to share the photographs with all their family and friends when they let the secret out the following day!
Fast forward 6 months and Nick & Kristina asked me if I was available to come down to London to shoot their wedding blessing with all their family and friends... OF COURSE I SAID YES! And what an amazing day it was!
Like their first, gone were most of the usual traditions in their second celebration. These two definitely know how to put their stamp on a party!
They held their blessing at The Cinema Museum in Kennington, and had a light Hollywood theme to the whole day. They both arrived in a NYC yellow taxi cab that looked like it had been plucked out of a 1990's film! They shared popcorn wedding favours on all their guests seats for the blessing ceremony - a great little nod to the venue - as well as having a screening of Tom & Jerry in a small cinema downstairs! AND, to top it all off, I think we can all agree Kristina oozes classic Hollywood Glamour with her two stunning outfit choices - and her hair was to die for!
One of my favourite moments was definitely when Kristina's mum saw her for the first time in her wedding dress... it's just the cutest thing!! Keep an eye out for those photos below!!
To end the big celebration, they had a 5 piece brass band playing pop songs. I cannot tell you how amazingly fun this was - we went from the Titanic theme tune to Estelle's American Boy to Pharrell Williams' Happy! And to give us all a little bit more love for Kristina & Nick's planning... they did their first dance was to Shakira, Hips Don't Lie!
I loved every part of this day, and I think Nick & Kristina really do show us all that a wedding can be whatever, and however you like it!
I think that's enough from me, let's let the photographs tell the rest of the story!
