Gherkin Wedding Photos – Jennifer & Alex’s Fantastic Day

Jennifer and Alex asked me to take their Gherkin Wedding Photos after their friends recommended me.  I was excited to do it, as despite shooting weddings all over London, I had never visited the Gherkin.  Alex and Jennifer wanted natural, storytelling coverage that captured the feel feel and emotion of the day.  We did shoot a few groups and posed pictures but they were shot really quickly, so they could get back to enjoying the party.

My day started at Jennifer’s hotel with her getting ready.

The view from the Gherkin is amazing and the children were fascinated with leaning on the windows (while the adults went pale and said – Don’t lean on it!)

My client’s didn’t want loads and loads of groups and posed pictures, so we did a few simple groups and some stuff with the two of them. Shooting this huge group made my knees knock a little.  Especially as I’m up on table to get this angle and there was only a very tiny barrier which I had to lean over.
