Tenisha and Tony Wedding
On the 29th of April I had the pleasure of photographing Tenisha and Tony’s Wedding at Club Langley Beckenham. A unique, African/Jamaican wedding of a vibrant couple and parents of a beautiful girl and tender young twins boys.
The wedding took place in a Catholic Church in Anerley followed by a lively reception at Club Langley in Beckenham
We started off at her house in Thornton Heath at 8:30 am. Sisters and mum arrived too and helped out in a super busy environment where the children were excited and actively playing in the lounge room.
It was sisters’ make up time, then mum and then Tenisha. She was beautiful, sensual being just just her. She seemed to me like a very strong woman, a dedicated and loving mum but not too keen in expressing emotions. I have waiting for them in order to capture those moments of joy and tensions, when they came out, and they were lovely.
The ceremony @St Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Anerly
It was soon ceremony time. I rushed to St Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in Anerly in order to take some photos of the groom, Tony, who was there waiting for this bride.
It was a fantastic moment when Tenisha arrived and all the bride and groom party were outside the church, waiting to see and greet her. Mum gave her away. Tenisha was a very tall bride with hidden emotions which gradually came out ready to be captured!
Reception @ Club Langley
After the ceremony we quickly reached ClubLangley in Beckenham where the reception took place and the show started.
The most important guests entered the reception dancing great music, with vivid colors and a warm atmosphere. It was so exciting and addictive that I have starting dancing as well while I was working!
Then it was speech time where laughs and emotions arise which translate for me in great photos opportunities.
I felt a lot of unity between families and friends, a deep feeling of love and trust which fulfills.
Apart from a photographer prospective this was also a great experience as a spectator. So thank you Tenisha and Tony for having me as your photographer. I have been delighted.
