Elopements are my favourite, that’s no secret. I was particularly excited about this one because it was the first time I got to shoot one in my favourite city: London.
Kella and Kotey are the easiest type of people to photograph: Young and crazy in love. They had the whole big – make – the – family – happy – wedding and decided what they really wanted was a ceremony just for themselves and in their own way.
They got ready at home together. The intimacy, simplicity and calmness of it was beautiful. They had their morning tea and wore their favourite shoes. They laughed like they were the only ones in on a really good joke.
Everything about this day was perfect because it was so simple and easy. The colours of Hackney, the ceremony lead by their friend and the rain that started just as said ceremony was over.
Let’s start with confetti.
