Wedding Photography in London: Ozgun & Davide
A beautiful and unusual wedding in the heart of London – by Ron Lima
Bride: Ozgun – Turkish
Groom: Davide – Italian
Where the wedding took place: London
These are just some basic facts of this fantastic wedding in London that I can say was unusual.
Unusual not because bride and groom come from different countries and different cultures, but unusual as the day was.
Ozgun & Davide live together in London – until here, there’s nothing unusual.
But, how many times a wedding photographer has the opportunity to shoot the preparation of the couple with them both together, inside the same house, sharing the same rooms and helping each other with clothes, make-up, flowers… everything?!
For the first time during all these years as a wedding photographer I heard the bride ask the groom to show me where her wedding dress was. And that’s not all… he even hanged it for me to take the pictures 🙂
To tell you all the truth, the groom was not very comfortable during the getting ready moments. Not because he was seeing the bride beforehand, but because he was among 6 women while getting ready (as he said).
We had some other unusual situations during their creative shots – what usually happens sometime between the ceremony and the reception or even at some point after the ceremony has started. Here we had something different: we photographed them before the wedding in Central London.
We walked a lot, but it was worthy. They wanted to show their kids (when they come) that their wedding was in London. I’m pretty sure we can show it with these amazing photographs 😉
The ceremony was simple, but really beautiful, with the couple arriving together hand in hand.
After the ceremony, we all walked to the venue – The Renaissance Hotel in King’s Cross. Walk to the venue is another unusual way of getting into the reception, but it was just 2 minutes away from the Camden Town Hall, where the wedding ceremony took place.
At the wedding reception, the parents of the groom (speaking Italian) and the parents of the bride (speaking Turkish) could understand each other very well (I think) and shared good laughing and great moments, even without speaking the same language.
Shooting weddings here in Europe, specially in this multi-cultural city called London, we can see some beautiful moments of interaction e proof of love.
Love is something that breaks down all borders and brings people together. And as I heard from a bride’s father’s speech once at a wedding in London: “LOVE is the universal language”.
