I haven’t photographed a New Years Eve wedding until this past year, and I have to say, what a great idea! You are getting married at the same time as ringing in a new year, with your nearest and dearest.
Lakna and Regis met practicing Brazilian jiujutsu – actually Regis was Lakna’s teacher! From the first time I met them, I can tell they share an amazing connection. We chatted over tea about their wedding day and Lakna expressed to me how much they like candid images that tell a story and when they saw the wedding I photographed at Alton Mill a few years ago, they instantly connected to my work.
They wanted to share a day of fun, laughter and love with their favourite people, and the wedding was just that. My favourite moments were during the speeches. Regis’ dad had just recovered from a stroke last year, and he played a song on guitar that he used to play for Regis and his brother when they were young. The atmosphere in the room was electric. There was not a dry eye in the room. You can really feel the love and support from their friends and family.
Here’s the story of Lakna & Regis’ wedding day! To love, and to friends & family. xoxo
