This is one of my two London Destination weddings, and I am still in awe that I was lucky enough to shoot two weddings in England this year, along with a memorable shoot in Paris. Both of my UK weddings were for sisters of brides that I had photographed in Chicago, and it was such a treat to be asked to be a part of their celebration. Val’s mom called me up about three months before their spring wedding and asked if I’d consider coming over—a few weeks later, I was on a whirlwind of a trip to photograph their celebration on a Monday in April. I always love shooting family weddings, and I especially love seeing how different siblings are in terms of personality and taste. Whereas Katy and Alex had a big city wedding with a reception at the very modern Art Institute, Val and Dave had a bit of a more intimate, relaxed and vintage wedding in the countryside just outside London—and yet both felt exactly like each of the girls. Val and Dave had selected this absolutely amazing hunting lodge-turned-hotel that was built in the 1500s for the preparations and reception. The gardens were spectacular; unfortunately it rained literally all day on the wedding day, but I loved how the sprinkles gave the day a quintessially British feel and really made the greens of the property pop.  There was much to love from the wedding day with so many little nuanced moments that really came together photographically, I thought. Between Dave’s adorable and slightly mischievous little nephews to the budding spring flowers “raining” on the couple after the ceremony to sweet toasts and amazing roasts, It was such a beautiful and romantic wedding. Thank you so much for having me over!
