In a society that is obsessed by reality shows and celebrities, I thought it would be exciting to look at some of those in the public eye, who ‘tied the knot’ this year.
This year marked the stunning Wedding of the very cheeky Prince Harry and the elegant american beauty Meghan Markle. The world stopped for the star studded event of the year, with guests including the influential Oprah Winfrey, Victoria and David Beckham, Elton John, Serena Williams, Amal and George Clooney, Idris Elba, James Cordon, and of course my favourite Tom Hardy to name a few. Joining them were Meghan’s fabulous colleagues from the hit TV Series Suits, Patrick J Adams, Gabriel Macht, Rick Hoffman and Gina Torres who added that extra american sparkle. The nation went bonkers for Britain and we all witnessed a new relaxed style of Royal Wedding. Meghan dazzled us in her Clare Waight Keller dress by day and her Stella McCartney dress by night, whilst Prince Harry wore a frockcoat uniform of the Blues and Royals. The happy couple were married at the incredible St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, a truly fabulous day.
I was very lucky to be asked to capture the lovely Wedding of Hollyoaks’ stunner Sarah Jayne Dunn (aka Mandy) to her beau Jon Smith this year on 5th May 2018. Having known Sarah for a long time having done various fashion shoots and the TV award shows, I know the camera loves her. We also had the amazing OK Magazine on board with us to accompany the Photography from the day. The Wedding was held at the enchanting Holford Estate, and with such amazing weather the ceremony was conducted outside. Sarah walked down the aisle to ‘Smash Into You’ by Beyonce infront of and her co-stars Danny Mac, Carley Stenson, Ali Bastian and Jodi Albert – and Jodi’s Westlife heartthrob husband Kian Egan – watched the couple say their emotional vows. Sarah sparkled in a beaded fishtail Ruth Milliam ivory gown whilst Jon and Stanley wore matching grey suits. It was such a magical day filled with lots of love and laughter.
The most beautiful Wedding of Kit Harrington and Rose Leslie held on June 23rd in Aberdeenshire, Scotland at the Kirkton of Rayne Church. As you would imagine attended by members of ‘Game of Thrones’ cast – Sophie Turner, Emilia Clarke, Maisie Williams and Peter Drinklage – and hollywood royalty such as the gorgeous Malin Akerman and Jack Donnelly, and members of the band Mumford and Sons. The wedding party made their way back to Leslie’s family estate and Wardhill Castle for the exciting reception. Rose wore a flawless vintage-style Elie Saab, a classic fit-and-flare cut, sweetheart neckline with long, sheer sleeves. The couple often described as ‘cute’ in the press were smiling from ear to ear.
Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer
A surprised proposal, after a few months of dating, followed by a very relaxed and secret ceremony in the stunning Malibu, California. Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer hosted a small celebrity filled beach Wedding. The guest list included actress and close friend Jennifer Lawrence. Also in attendance were Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal and Larry David. Amy’s Wedding dress was a Monique Lhuillier Wedding Dress, floaty with floral-embroidery. Unless most Hollywood Weddings this appears to be very personal, intimate and full of love.
