Sophie & Al’s Larmer Tree wedding
Okay, so not entirely sure where to start with this one… Possibly by saying how badass the new Mrs Julius is. I mean look at her, that confidence, fun and attitude you are seeing is a joy to shoot. I’ve shot Soph a number of times of the years for different projects, but her own wedding was in another league. She was wearing a killer Rue de Seine gown (have wanted to shoot one of these fo EVA), with a cape she had made because, well, look at it. 100% Sophie. They got ready in the town of Shaftesbury, before heading to the exquisite Larmer Tree – a venue I have wanted to shoot at since I started this job, but the stars have never quite aligned, and it didn’t disappoint. I loved it.
Al & his boys got ready in Southampton (and thanks to second shooter Minah for covering that).
They got married in a beautiful outdoor space on a beautifully sunny day – what more can a photographer ask for? Oh yeah, a cape that blew in the wind & made even a walk to the bar super dramatic. Well, I got that too. I also got to see familiar faces from previous weddings (shout out to Sarah & Roisin, and Amy yet again – basically Amy is my wedding mascot this year), which made the day so relaxed & fun. And I must give a huge shout out to Gail at Larmer Tree who was so warm & friendly, and made us so welcome – the food was INCREDIBLE. The stunning pampas grass installations were from Owen at Little Lillies – a really different choice which made the beautiful eating space at Larmer into a plantation style place of calm. Well, until all the guests got in there…
The evening was long a warm, and the dance floor was kicking off with Al on his MC duties – even with Gabriel on his shoulders (he is part of the garage band Artful Dodger), which I loved (even though the fact I was listening to Michael Bolton on the way there without a trace of irony indicates that this isn’t my normal music), the dance floor was electric.
So yeah, a pretty damn amazing day, which at its core was Sophie & Al, and their children, and their friends, and how fiercely loved they all are. Thank you so much for letting me be part of it.
If you are having a Larmer Tree wedding, I would love to talk to you, so get in touch!
