Rachel and Ayman were married at RHS Wisley in Surrey on possibly the rainiest day of the year, which was a relief after the heatwave. (The glorious Halfpenny London slip dress and skirt held up magnificently, thanks to a hand-dryer in the loos and a very laid-back bride.)
This wedding was also notable as the first first look we’ve ever shot in the UK. We love shooting first looks, but it’s usually only our clients over on the other side of the Atlantic who go for them. They usually make the soon-to-be newlyweds much more relaxed going into the ceremony, it really takes away a lot of the anxiety around the public, performative aspects of a bigger wedding. More first looks, please!
