Zoe and Will were the first couple I photographed that I didn't know. We met up last year at their houseboat on the Thames (yep you read that right) and we had the best day taking lots of photos and ended up in the pub... which is now becoming a bit of a trend! You can see their Engagement photos from last year here :)
Zoe and Will are one of those couples that I am in absolute awe of. They live on the most amazing houseboat filled with gorgeous antique furniture, Zoe works at a law firm and has, quite literally, an international family (guests came from America, South Africa, Europe, Japan... you name it), Will has recently got a teaching post at Eton (yep... you read that right too) and they both sing in choirs! So... fast forward to April 2010 and me and Pete got on the tube in the morning and headed over to Mayfair to where Zoe was getting ready.... the day for me was a pretty big event as the church was mahoosive (and one of the most beautiful churches I've ever seen) and although there were many traditional elements of the day, the wedding was fantastically quirky with the most amazing mix of people.
For me the best part of the whole day were the choir (who were all Will's friends) singing through the service. It was so beautifully sung and so personal to both Will and Zoe... it really took my breath away.
After the service all the guests made their way, in a Routemaster bus to the ICA (Institute of Contemporary Arts) where they held a fantastically relaxed reception with a delicious buffet and fabulous speeches delivered to a gorgeous 'find a chair or find a spot on the floor' audience. The night was then finished off with an amazing Salsa band which had everyone on the dance floor swinging each other around!
Zoe and Will, thank you for letting me be a part of your wonderful day and I wish you all the happiness in the world for your new and very exciting life together!
