When Liv and Joel asked us to photograph their wedding, I was quite moved. Liv and I were best friends throughout secondary school, and, for years, were inseparable. We grew up and grew apart as friends do, but kept in touch via social media. When she asked if Marcus and I would be their wedding photographers, I was honoured. I couldn’t believe that she wanted me to do it, and I couldn’t wait to see one of my childhood best friends get married; and be the one to document it!
Having not seen Liv for years and having never met Joel before, we arranged to meet them both prior to the wedding, like we always do, to go over what they wanted from the day. It was lovely to see Liv again and Joel was so charming; I approved! They told us they were having two ceremonies: the legal ceremony, at Biggin Hall, where only a select few would see them say ‘I do’, and then a commitment ceremony and the reception, at New House Farm, where all other family and friends would unite to see them relay their vows. I was excited when I heard that the reception was at New House Farm, as it is owned by Liv’s Uncle, and I have fond and funny memories of us there when we were younger!
