I was approached by the lovely Bijou Bride who had been sent my way by my friend Louise of Whimsical Wonderland Weddings to see if I would be interested in running a competition that would involve me photographing a couple in London and Alex of The Bijou Bride organising it.
I love to get involved in things like this so emailed back a ‘hell yea’! The entries came in thick and fast and one couple stood out. James and Nicola were already married but on their day it absolutely poured down! Even though they were over the moon with the pictures from the ceremony etc they felt they didn’t get the chance to have their ‘Couple’ shoot.
When they found out they had won, Nicola commented that she had never won anything before and couldn’t wait. Alex got to work and before I knew it, I was on the train to London for the shoot.
I couldn’t have asked for a nicer couple and we all felt at ease instantly. Kari (one of my previous Brides) came to do Nicola’s hair and make up (as this is what she also does for a living), while James and I talk cameras and lenses.
We then all hit the streets of London and these were the results…..
