Jo and Joe’s Chic Italian Wedding in Dreamy Florence, Italy

British bride Jo and her Italian/Canadian groom Joe, first met thanks to Joe’s eldest daughter Marina who introduced them when they were out one evening socialising with friend’s at bar called Le Jardin in Hong Kong.

We have many mutual friends in common with Jo and Joe from when I lived in Hong Kong and more recently when they stayed at our condo in Thailand (Joe was waiting to start a new job). So we were thrilled to be asked to photograph their chic Italian wedding in Florence, Italy.

The Proposal

“On my birthday, Joe took me to my favourite 3 Michelin Star restaurant in Hong Kong called Otto E Mezzo. He was eager to get me home before the clock struck midnight, as had set up the sound system to go off at that time for the proposal! As I had no idea this was coming, I was reluctant to go home as was having such a great time. I kept whining ‘but it’s my biiiirtday’, finally however he convinced me with a ‘let’s go home and open up a bottle of champagne to see your birthday in’ so I agreed.

As soon as we walked in the door he proceeded to open a bottle of bubbles and put the music on.  He figured he had 45 seconds to get down on one knee and get his speech out before the chorus came on in the music, which was Train’s ‘Marry Me’. I just sat there mouth wide open in silence… he said, oh I didn’t plan for this! Answer me!!… to which I replied… absolutely!”

The Ceremony

Jo and Joe although based in Hong Kong decided to marry in Florence, Italy. Not only because of Joe’s Italian routes but because bride-to-be Jo had always dreamt of marrying in Italy ever since she was a little girl. She felt very lucky indeed when she fell in love with a Canadian Italian!

Lucy & Gee’s English Summer Wedding at Longstowe Hall, Cambridgeshire

Dubai couple Lucy (English) and Gee (German) first met half way around the world at Doha Airport in Qatar. Since they live in the Middle East and have family and friends worldwide, they wanted to choose a location that was both meaningful to them and not too difficult for their guests to travel to.

They both liked the idea of having an English summer wedding since they have both lived in the UK and have family in Europe. As soon as they viewed Longstowe Hall in Cambridgeshire, they fell in love with it instantly – a wonderful British countryside setting, with beautifully manicured lawns and rose gardens and a picturesque lake.

Wedding Day Preparations

Lucy and her two bridesmaids prepared for the celebrations ahead with hair and make-up by local Cambridgeshire artist “Tiffany does Make-up” before stepping into their bridal outfits.  Lucy’s “something new” were her gorgeous diamond earrings gifted to her by her parents. They were the perfect addition to her glamorous bridal gown by designer Justin Alexander and shoes by Valentino.

Fiona and Andrew’s English Summer Wedding at Haileybury College Chapel

Now this doesn’t happen too often… Bride Fiona and her groom Andrew had their very first date at the BFI bar on the Southbank on 27th August 2014, and their wedding day exactly 2 years later on 27th August 2016!

Fiona adopted Fudge the Yorkshire Terrier you’ll see in their wedding photos just a week before she met Andrew. So it’s not surprising she took Fudge to meet Andrew on their second date while going for a dog walk in Primrose Hill to ensure she had Fudge’s approval too 😉

Andrew proposed with his late grandmother Florence’s beautiful sapphire and diamond engagement ring at the Corinthia Hotel in London, very close to where they first met. The engagement ring was given to Andrew’s grandmother’s in 1937 by his grandfather, along with a matching brooch, which Andrew’s parents had made into a necklace for Fiona to wear on their wedding day.

The Wedding Ceremony

Andrew and Fiona’s English summer wedding took place at Haileybury College Chapel (Fiona’s old school) in Hertfordshire. The beautiful chapel was constructed in 1877 and designed by architect Arthur Blomfield in the Lombardic Romanesque style. The actual school was founded by the East India Company a few years earlier in 1862. The chapel is topped by a dome and cupola which make a striking landmark that is visible from many miles away.

The bride and groom found out by complete coincidence

Tina & Matt’s international wedding celebration at the Amanpuri Villa, Phuket. What a fantastic way to start our 2016/2017 Thailand Wedding Season just one week after our trip to New York.

We first met Hong Kong expatriate’s Tina and Matt last April while photographing the marriage ceremony of their friend’s Robin & Jamee. Who threw a spectacular golf themed wedding at the Banyan Tree Resort in Phuket Thailand. As you can imagine we had been looking forward to this wedding for quite some time, and it didn’t disappoint!

Bride Tina and her partner Matt first set their eyes upon each other while socialising with friends at a bar in Hong Kong’s popular nightspot of Lang Kwai Fong.

The Proposal

Tina: “It was the first-time Matt took me to his family’s holiday home on Vancouver Island, a place very dear to his heart. We took a casual stroll along a pebble beach that his family calls White Shell Beach. Matt insisted we took a bottle of wine – why not J. We sat down on the pebbles and then Matt started to randomly ask my thoughts on a pebble in his hand…? It’s round, brownish black as pebbles tend to look like. I turned away, not thinking too much about his random question but the next pebble he proceeded to show me … was THE ring J.”

Wedding Ceremony & Reception

The couple chose Phuket, Thailand as it’s a place they call their home away from home both having holidayed there since they were young.  Tina with the help of
