After a long time away from the blog due to my shoulder injury, I’m catching up on weddings, starting with Nicola and Anthony, who married in the Purple Room at Westminster Register Office purple last month. Waiting for Nicola were her and Anthony’s daughter Ava in the safe arms of grandma and Anthony himself.Westminster Register Office wedding ceremony
Ava’s special dress and shoes were everything a little girl could wish for.

We took some time to make the most of the atmospheric lighting.

A few yards away, we found this lit window, brilliant for the kind of funky portraits Nicola and Anthony had in mind.

And for a photograph of them with their friends, they wanted to recreate the Quadrophenia poster.
