Nadine and Lewis’ wedding was fabulously free spirited, which I knew it would be. I met Nadine about six years ago on a photography course in Leeds and we’ve stayed in touch ever since, even though she’s moved all over the place: California, York and now London. So, when she asked me to shoot her wedding, I was delighted.
The wedding was held at Cornish Tipi Weddings in North Cornwall and the couple’s friends and family had travelled from all over the world: Mauritius, France, America and Germany, to celebrate with them.
I loved everything about the day; from the way Nadine and Lewis got ready together in their tipi on the morning of the wedding, to Lewis driving Nadine and the bridesmaids (including Nadine’s beautiful daughter, Sofia) to the ceremony. All formalities were binned. No formal speeches. No formal wedding reception. And certainly no formal photographs.
Nadine didn’t want a make-up artist or hair dresser, instead she got her friends to help her out…at her open air dressing table. Everyone was camping nearby so she didn’t have to go far before someone offered to paint her nails or do her hair.
It was a fab weekend that I was honoured to be part of. Congratulations you gorgeous pair, may you have many more weekends like this!
PS. I need to come down to London to celebrate properly with you!
