If you’ve ever seen any advertising material from Down Hall, then you’ve probably already seen our work! Much to our surprise, this is something that was mentioned to us by Nasreen when we first began chatting about their wedding plans.
This year we’ve been incredibly fortunate to shoot for some utterly lovely couples. That’s no surprise in itself as we only work with nice people- but when a couple actually reach out to you to check your availability before even deciding on a venue, that’s a sure sign that photography is high on the priority list!
More than most, it was a real honour having been asked to shoot this one. Ray is a graphic designer who really knows his stuff. It’s always the icing on the cake when another creative enjoys our work. Also though, Nasreen, myself and the rest of our friends spent countless breaks and lunchtimes together at school. Back then I don’t think any of us could have really imagined how quickly the next 10, 12, 15 years would whizz by. Yet here we are, all that time later as real, actual adults with proper jobs and mortgages and marriages.
It was so amazing to have been at Down Hall to document Nasreen & Ray’s marriage and the celebrations that followed. I think I even managed to get through most of the day without being caught teary eyed. Until the speeches that is, when my attempts to conceal the watery eyes were definitely clocked by Nas’ mum!
It was lovely to see some familiar faces, whilst also having the chance to meet new ones. All in a days work! Thank you so much to everyone on the day who helped to make it a fantastic, fun day to photograph.
This is just a tiny snippet of what is to come in the full gallery, but we hope you love the previews as much as we enjoyed capturing these moments. If you’re a friend, guest, relative or just a well wisher please feel free to leave your comments for Nasreen & Ray below.
