On Saturday I was lucky enough to photograph a wedding at London Zoo, Regents Park in the centre of London. I was 2nd photographer for my good friend Steve and my challenge was to capture the expression from the day whilst he concentrated on the more formal and posed moments. The couple, Tracy and David were really fun to work with and wanted to get the most out of the unusual setting of the Zoo for their wedding.
We arrived nice and early, as travelling through London can be a bit of a gamble at times. The couple had the services of Robert Persell, professional Toastmaster for the day and he was very accommodating, and also good fun too. It wasn’t long before the guests started arriving and the proceedings were well under way.
My role was to capture the natural moments through out the day and be on the look out for any photo opportunities.
The ceremony took place in the Prince Albert Suite which has it’s own private terrace and lawn area for the formal photographs afterwards.
After the group photographs the couple had requested that we went on a little tour of the zoo with them. We couldn’t resist some shots on the merry-go-round, I had to hang on for dear life whilst capturing these action shots… who said it was safe job? The couple also headed for the bouncy castle, they were enjoying the zoo facilities!
Ofcourse it wouldn’t be a day at the zoo without seeing some animals.
After a leisurely tour and seeing lots of animals and birds, we headed back for the wedding breakfast.
The caterers had laid on a fantastic barbecue buffet which everyone seemed to enjoy, including myself and Steve. After the meal we took the couple around for a few more photographs of just the two of them and it also gave them some time alone.
It was then time for the first dance, with a surprise finale and then the party started.
I really had fun photographing Tracy and David’s wedding, plus it was great working with Steve again. I can offer a two photographer service on all my wedding packages, please visit my website for more information. I can also provide parents albums and much more…
