I was really excited to be booked to photograph a wedding at Cannizzaro House, I’ve known the hotel and the gardens for some time. I used to have a dog and I would often walk him there in the summer.
I met the bride & groom, Seema and Patrick one month earlier at their flat in Wandsworth. Patrick’s family were from Holland and Seema’s originally from Pakistan both from very modem families. We talked for over an hour I was particularly pleased as they had a dog, Jasper, a golden retriever who was away at the time in Belgium (yes I know a cosmopolitan jet-setting dog)!! I know how difficult it is to photograph animals especially excited retrievers but I jumped to the challenge with gusto! We arranged to meet at the venue the week before to look for the best locations.
Cannizzaro House has a splendid staircase and balcony I knew I could get some fantastic shots from there and the herb garden had a great garden & summer house which they use for weddings when its hot, just as I had thought it was the perfect location, I couldn’t wait to start.
Thank you both very much for letting me be your wedding photography on your special day xx
