Chris & Jeannine are from Ireland and America respectively. They knew they wanted to get married over in Florida, where Jeannine is from, but they weren’t going to be able to afford that for a few years so they decided to get the formalities out of the way first and tie the knot. They just got a few of Chris’s family over from Ireland and went down to Islington Town Hall to say their vows. There were only about seven of them in total, but it was one of the loveliest days I’ve had the pleasure to be a part of. Chris read out a letter from Jeannine’s mum, which brought tears to everyone’s eyes especially Jeannine who clearly would have loved her mum to have been there. They were happy tears though as her words definitely brought her into the day in a lovely way.
The vows took place in the Judges’ Chamber in Islington Town Hall. It’s a lovely room with wooden walls and lovely tall windows and a big table for them to sign the register on. I got some lovely photographs of them looking rather smug afterwards in two big leather chairs looking like royalty on their thrones, and then looking slightly less like royalty when Jeannine put her feet up onto Chris’s knee. They were great fun to photograph and had some lovely ideas for images they wanted. When we got outside they all had great fun blowing bubbles at each other and taking some more pictures while they waited for the taxi.
Even though I was only with them for about 2 hours in total we got some great photographs for them to remember their day with. I was also blown away by the lovely testimonial Chris sent me after they got their pictures.
“For our London wedding, Jeannine and I used Lucy Judson – and the results were fantastic. Having enjoyed Lucy’s non-intrusive, yet intimate style, Jeannine and I met Lucy for a consultation before the event. She made us feel completely at ease, reassuring us in our most manic and busy of times, that she would capture our union in a wonderful way. Miss Judson more than delivered. The photographs were nothing short of marvelous – capturing Jeannine’s mystery and beauty perfectly, whilst making me look respectable and dapper! They were stylish, colourful and remarkably intimate. On the day itself we forgot she was there for a lot of the time, as she is so incredibly aware of angles and spacing. Lucy is a first class photographer, and, should she be in Miami soon, we would love to use her for our next wedding!”
“Lucy’s creative talent & enthusiasm was so obvious when we met her for the first time; we felt completely confident about her photographing our wedding. On the day, our guests commented on how lovely Lucy was as she subtly bounced around capturing so many clever shots. Our day was very colourful and the way she captured this was beyond my expectations…just perfect. She worked her socks off for us, and we couldn’t be more grateful.” VIEW GALLERY
