I was asked to be Zoe and Fernando wedding photographer, but we wanted to get in a bit of practice before their big day, so we popped along to Wimbledon Common. We just went for a chat and a wander taking some photographs along the way. Nothing too posed or awkward, just them being together and enjoying each others company,. It made a real different on their wedding day itself. They were both really relaxed and just got on with having fun and ignoring me.
Wimbledon and Putney Commons are 1,140 acres of countryside amidst the urban surroundings of Wimbledon, Putney and Kingston. As a Special Area of Conservation, the Commons provide an important home for wildlife and a place for visitors to relax and unwind.
I heard all about their plans for their day and about why they like each other so much. I got some insights into how to photograph them and how best to chill out Fernando, who was by far the most awkward in front of the camera, but even he chilled out after a while.

“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
