Rhiannon and I met when she was a Bridesmaid for another couple (the gorgeous Jen and Tom) in 2016. Fast forward to the first weekend of 2018 and I'm rattling my way to London on the train to shoot her marriage to Jonathan.
I have been lucky to travel a lot throughout my life but London is a special place. It feels like home in so many ways. I met Rhiannon at The Lansdowne Club in Mayfair for her prep where she was ever inch the elegant bride.
On destination weddings, I always try and travel with an assistant. Another pair of hands is so valuable for me, allows me to get more coverage than I would if I was alone. A big thanks to Yasmin who was great fun and incredibly helpful.
We had travelled the day before making the most of the trip and visiting the locations. I've never been late and this wasn't going to be the first time! Like clockwork, everyone came together in the City for their ceremony.
With Leadenhall Market nearby and mostly deserted (except for some Harry Potter fans checking out a filming location), the new Mr and Mrs Curry braved the elements for some couples shots in the dark.
Having dispensed with the PDAs, The Lansdowne Club team welcomed us into the warm where Rhiannon and Jonathan's loved ones were waiting. The happy couple mingled with guests and greeted everyone personally in a lovely receiving line. The ballroom was resplendent on that dark winter evening, feeling perfectly cosy for such a great space.
Some emotional and very funny speeches later, I said goodnight and went back to my hotel with a happy heart for a hot cup of tea and my favourite red velvet Lola's Cupcake.
