Julia, our glowing bride came out from her parents house in Parliament Hill Fields quite late, very late in fact, the ceremony was at 11am and it was 10:58 when she finally got into the back of Albert the Asquith with her Dad.
As the official photographer had already left to capture Julia’s arrival at the church I was able to snap a few pictures of her with her dad before we left for St Marylebone Church.
When Julia came out of the house we both looked at each other quite strangely, as though we had met somewhere before, I later found out that both her and her future husband used to be wedding photographers and our paths had obviously crossed on previous occasions.
Saturday the 21st was a roasting hot day and Albert the Asquith was getting many admiring glances from passers by with many tourists taking photographs of him standing on the forecourt of St Marylebone.
The reception was to be held just across the road from the church at Regents University which holds many functions within its grounds, most of the guests took the short walk across the road while Julia & Karl took the opportunity with the photographer to get some more shots around the church.
When they returned to the Taxi Karl said to me “we have met before haven’t we”?, as I said earlier both Julia and Karl used to do Wedding Photography but both now teach photography through various educational institutes and their own company The Mango Lab, and this was the first that their official Wedding photographer knew about their previous profession! Talk about pressure on the poor bloke.
As the journey over the Regents University was extremely short I suggested to Julia and Karl that we take a ride around the Outer Circle of the park to allow them time to relax for 5 minutes before rejoining their guests at the reception of which they were glad.
Driving people on their wedding day is a privilege, I always enjoy driving the happy couple and really do try to make them feel special.
