Wedding season this year has seen the whole studio busy. Lately my posts have been mostly couples that I have photographed, but Adam too has been booked out with really beautiful weddings this year. I’ve managed to grab a few that blew me away to post over the next few days. Here is the first….the deeply meaningful wedding of Kinga and Nigel.
You know the old saying….”they make music together”. This is the phrase that came to mind when Adam told me the story of Kinga and Nigel that goes with these images. Everything about this wedding was significant. I LOVE weddings like this. Where all the details are not driven by current trends or by any sense of “what you are supposed to have or do”. Instead the details reflect things that are personally meaningful to them. Deeply meaningful. The whole wedding ends up being a reflection of not just their love for each other, but also a celebration of their family history, their individuality, and the new family bond they are now creating.
Kinga and Nigel got married in St John’s Cathedral. They chose this magnificent church because Nigel’s Grandad worked as an architect on the construction of St John’s. He was responsible for designing the ornate wood carvings that you find inside the cathedral. How special that this is where Nigel pledged his love and commitment to Kinga.
Kinga’s Dad is a classical composer. Kinga walked down the aisle to music composed especially for her, by her father, played by musicians that were also friends. Kinga’s dress was designed by the very popular Pina Fiorenza, but as Pina is a family friend, Kinga’s dress was made with even more love and care than Pina’s usual designs. Pina was on hand at the Stamford Plaza to help Kinga get ready, also doing her makeup for the day. This would be a dress to keep and hand down to your daughter. Kinga’s flowers were by Shirley Baggaley. Their reception was lunch at The Queensland Club where Nigel’s father is a member. Fine food and fabulous jazz, family, friends and lots and lots of love.
Kinga and Nigel, from all of us at Studio Impressions (and especially from Adam), we hope your lives together are forever full of as much love and meaning as on your wedding day.
