Friday, February 20, 2009 | Business portrait, London wedding, Portraits
I’ve just finished editing business portrait sessions for two Everywoman members. Everywoman is an organisation for women in business with advice and events such as its annual conference, which I’ve loved.
Vaishali Shah from Creative ID designs stunning wedding invitations reflecting her British Asian heritage. She has been working with an Asian and Scottish couple on their wedding and managed to find tartan confetti for the Scottish element. How clever is that! Here are my favourite three from the session.
My other client was Kate Tailyour, a fashion designer, who wore some of her own designs for the session. Kate’s life is buzzing with a sample sale and planning the launch and shoot for her next collection.

Rachel and Danny’s GherkinÂ wedding started with guestsÂ waiting in the sunshine to go inside forÂ security checks. They were piped into the building at the appropriate time to reflect Danny’s Scottish roots. Â Guests went to the 34th floor, where they changed lifts for the 39th. Â Danny and the ushers were waiting at the top for guests.
Rachel, her mother and bridesmaids arrived on time in a black limousine.
Have you ever seen anyone look this happy?
The quick upward rise of the lifts can make your ears pop.
Poor Danny is a worried man.
Rachel’s mother walked her down the aisle and lifted her veil.
Danny’s usher Andy read A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton during the ceremony.
We did a couple of group portraits after a champagne reception.
For anyone who doesn’t like heights, you might want to look away for the next two photographs.
I finished Rachel and Danny’s coverage at their meal, but couldn’t resist sneaking in a couple of extra portraits before I left.
