Back in September of 2018 I had the absolute pleasure of capturing Grace & Ben’s stylish wedding that took place at Grove House a gorgeous London wedding venue and boy what a treat it was! From our first Skype call, to their engagement session and finishing off with their beautiful wedding G&B were a dream to photograph and a pleasure to get to know…
Over on the north bank of the River Thames in Westminster, the bridal preparations were in full swing over at The Wellington hotel where Grace and her girls prepared for the day ahead! The room was full of giggles, excitement and of course a touch of those wedding butterflies.
Grace looked so regal in her Ellis Bridals gown which suited her perfectly, it was safe to say she blew Ben away as she walked down the aisle!
As you probably know I’m a HUGE David Austin rose fan and have planted many in my garden so when I saw the gorgeous blooms that florist Lavender Green Flowers had created for Grace and her bridesmaids I did a little happy dance (in my head of course)!
Look at these two cuties, they melted my heart as I arrived at church just ahead of Grace to capture all that anticipation…
Grace and Ben tied the knot at their church the Emmanuel Centre in Westminster where they met just a few years ago (yep you heard me right, I told you these guys were the sweetest!) it was one of the loveliest ceremonies I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing. The whole room was filled with their family and friends who were there to share in their joy and sing with all their might!
It was then time to head over to Grove House, a London Wedding Venue in Roehampton, that perfectly suited the style and atmosphere of the day!
The whole afternoon was filled with laughter and smiles….
Grace and Ben had decided on an engagement shoot ahead of their big day and you could really tell how comfortable this made them on their wedding day. We felt more like friends on the day and I really feel this creates a relaxed environment for photography which I think shows in these photographs…
This has to be one of my favourites of G&B, just look at those smiles, thanks for making my job not feel like work guys!
It was then time to head to The Portrait Room for speeches and their delicious wedding breakfast created by Acclaim Food Ltd.
If you’re looking for a cake designer in London then Andrea Freeman Cakes is your lady. Grace and Ben’s delicious semi naked cake consisted of tiers of lemon & elderflower, chocolate & black cherry and banana & salted caramel!
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Cheong and thank you so much for trusting me to capture your most precious memories. I wish you a life time of happiness together!
Grace & Ben – “Choosing Christina to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made during our wedding planning. We are so thrilled with how the photos turned out and we had the best experience of working with her.
From the first Skype call, surprise packages, engagement shoot, to the big day itself, Christina was a joy and pleasure to work with. Despite being nervous about our engagement shoot, Christina’s friendly personality and subtle direction made the whole experience fun, light hearted and relaxed.
Not only does she take stunning photographs, Christina also has a calming presence and did not intrude on the wedding day proceedings at all. We’re also really happy that Christina was able to capture an extensive range of our guests too. We will treasure our photos forever, thank you Christina!”
HUGE thank you to Grace and Ben’s amazing suppliers who helped them create their perfect day!
