I have known Abbi and her family for many, many years. A couple of years ago my family attended Abbi’s mother’s wedding in Tuscany and now Abbi herself is getting married to the love of her life.
Abbi and Luke chose to marry in Ibiza back in September, a place where they have both lived and worked, therefore very close to their hearts. However before they could marry abroad, the pair had to legally marry in England. I was so honoured to be asked to record this special day for them in the City with only their very close family attending.
For their legal ceremony, Abbi and Luke chose the beautiful Islington Town Hall, not far from their home together in Stoke Newington. Before the ceremony I met them both at their home and took some photos of them both on the cobbled streets. Abbi chose to wear an Asos mesh shift dress dotted with iridescent sequins, teamed with some white wedges. Luke went for a simple white shirt, black skinny trousers black leather belt and ankle boots – I totally love their style!
We caught a cab to the Town Hall where we met up with their waiting parents and grandparents. I could tell that waiting around was a strange feeling for them, so to take their minds off it, I took them outside for some pre-wedding portraits. They were a little bit apprehensive to begin with and their imminent ceremony didn’t help with the nerves! However I did love getting some really casual, romantic shots of the two of them and I hope I really captured the emotions they felt at the time.
The ceremony was held in room 99, a small intimate room with two registrars. The whole ceremony was incredibly relaxed, with Abbi giggling most of the way through and Luke clutching her hand supportively. The pair chose to do the exchanging of the rings in Ibiza so the ceremony was short and sweet, but it was still really lovely and meaningful.
Thank you so much Abbi and Luke for letting me record part of your new adventure together, I am so grateful to be part of your lives!
