Nick and Rachael - Westminster Cathedral and The Clarendon Hotel, Blackheath / by Dorian Knightley

What a privilege to be part of such a beautiful day. Rachael and Nick’s wedding was unique from start to finish! Three piece morning suits and top hats on one of the hottest days ever recorded in London. Westminster Cathedral is HUGE and very beautiful. All the groomsmen and Bridesmaids were doing double duty: conducting choirs, making clothes, decorating cakes…

Because of a very tight schedule, we decided to take the family portraits after dinner but, of course, we were running a bit late so lost some of the light. But, using a bit of off camera flash on the yellow, heat scorched grass of the beautiful Blackheath, I think we managed to capture some very unique images.

And then, the sun suddenly (and very beautifully) started to set and turned completely red, so we were able to grab a few quick photos of the couple against this stunning backdrop. What a stroke of luck!

Massive congratulations Nick and Rachael.
