Cigdem & Hakan's awesome wedding at The Regency Banqueting Suite, North London.
First of all Cigdem and Hakan are amazing. 10yrs together and they are so so in love. As a wedding photographer I was spoilt. Not only that though these guys also have an incredible bunch of friends and family.
Each and every wedding I do makes me love my job even more than I think is possible. Each and every time I get to work with amazing people in awesome places, my work fills my whole life with creativity, love, beauty, fun and so much happiness. Every time I get back from photographing a wedding and do the preview I am spoilt for amazing moment after amazing moment. With my wedding hangover, I sit at my computer and solve the problem of what images to share as I love all of them.
This wedding was no different.....
Everyone got ready at the Cheshunt Marriot Hotel and I had a wonderful second shooter in the form of Gyan Gurang who was there to capture the boys prep. The girls all looked amazing and had matching dressing gowns to get ready in and well the boys got stuck in the lift. Every wedding day needs a mishap and this was theirs :) Cigdem looked absolutely incredible, the back detail on her dress was proper wow, I think everyone can agree here that she was a very beautiful bride! Her make up was done by the talented and lovely Sarah Karran
After everyone had got their glad rags on we headed to the Regency Banqueting Suite in North London where both the ceremony and the reception would be held. I really like this venue, its got some very cool lighting, lots beautiful decor and it is a great stage for a wedding.
The ceremony was packed but intimate, we had a few tears and a few laughs and photographing Cigdem and Hakan exchange their vows was amazing. Straight after it was some group photos and speeches and then we headed off to Capel Manor Gardens for bridal party photos and couple photos!
For a wedding photographer this place is perfect. So many lovely parts (and we only had time for a little bit) some nice ruins and the light was beautiful! My gorgeous couple were easy peasy to work with, I told them to just 'be' and they gave me everything we needed for some wonderful photos :)
It was straight back to the venue for one serious party. So much dancing! The drums, the music, throwing the groom in the air, more dancing, more drums and I left with my ears ringing and a big smile on my face!
I really can't thank you guys enough for having me as your wedding photographer. I am so happy for you and I hope your photos are something that is treasured for many years. I can't wait to create your wedding album with you and I hope you have the most amazing time on your honeymoon.
