What better way to cap off a wonderful year of weddings than with a surprise wedding! I guess one thing that made Lewis & Ellie’s wedding even better was their beautiful family members – many of whom I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with at previous events.
Here’s how it went:
Ellie & Lewis invited family and friends to Brown Sugar at Warner’s bay for their Engagement party. Unbeknownst to guests, behind a wall was a ceremony set up just waiting for that magical moment. Ellie’s Dad had the pleasure of revealing the secret at the end of his welcome speech and the room erupted in cheers! Ellie quickly changed in the toilets (what a champ) and just like that they were married! The eruption of hugs and congratulations that followed was so raw and real and beautiful – I loved being there to witness it.
Ellie & Lewis, I can’t thank you enough for allowing me the pleasure of photographing such a special occasion. I’m truly touched that you trusted me with your secret plans and that your beautiful family and friends allowed me the honor of photographing them in all their joy and celebration. Have a wonderful honeymoon!
