Friday, May 23, 2008 | Wedding, Westminster Register Office
Karin & Kevin married today at Westminster Register Office, followed by drinks & lunch at the Goring Hotel. Karin looked totally stunning and Kevin was suitably sharp, and their daughters Laura and Olivia in a girl’s favourite colour – pink.
One of the most wonderful things about photographing a wedding is the opportunity to capture the joining of two families and the generations and friends around them.
It’s great when, despite no shared language except smiles, this young woman understood where I wanted to shoot this portrait.
And some family portraits.

Caroline and Paul’s wedding at Westminster Register Office’s Reception Room today had a heart-stopping moment for their best man Charles. Â As he went to hand over their rings, he found they had interlocked, with Caroline’s ring fitting exactly inside Paul’s and he was nervous that pulling them apart could damage either or both of them. Thankfully, after a few seconds, the rings separated and Caroline and Paul were able to complete their marriage ceremony. Â Charles also gave a stonkingly good speech after lunch, covering among other things Paul’s support of Chelsea Football Club and associated celery throwing. Â Apparently, Paul doesn’t just throw celery – he throws organic celery – and yes, it is from THAT supermarket.
