There's something about a sharp tailored suit and a fine pair of shoes, walking the length of a stunning Georgian London Square, which is effortlessly romantic... And the very London wedding of Mark and David took full advantage of this.
Mark and David were quite simply, the sweetest couple. We met over drinks in their local pub, The Lukin; a beautiful little gem tucked away around the corner of Fitzroy Square; whiskey boxes and antique trinkets lined the ceiling high shelves around us; and low hanging lamps glowed in the low light of the autumn afternoon. The chemistry between these two was so genuine and down to earth.. but once the big day came around, and I took them away after the ceremony for a few minutes of private time, they relaxed even more.
Strolling out across the open space of Fitzroy Square, umbrella in hand, these two looked dapper and classic; holding hands and stepping in time together.
Though the clouds were closing in, and busy London life continued to bustle around them, they flirted and laughed together like there was no one around at all.. I included.
Looking back through the photos here, I am so chuffed to have captured their humour and sweetness, without taking away from their super handsome and dapper styles.
The square itself was the ideal backdrop. Built in the late 18th century, these stunning Georgian terraced buildings, stand proudly wearing their numerous blue badges of culture; most notably, Mark and David here photographed in front of number 8, where seminal American painter J M Whistler once lived. The square is referenced and used at a backdrop in numerous novels and films.. but my favourite being Thackeray's 'Vanity Fair'.
Stylish, classic, and historic.. and at the same time, being Mark and David's doorstep. Perfect.
It's not often a location and a chemistry marry up quite so perfectly, but this awesome pair made it magic. Congratulations guys.. Looking forward to getting the whole set to you soon..
