Sarah & Kevin…
We recently featured this gorgeous wedding of Sarah & Kevin in the first edition of our online magazine– We loved it so much we even gave it the front cover! The couple were actually winners of a competition ran by Alexa Loy Photography and Mr & Mrs Unique for one lucky couple to win their wedding photography.
After receiving many entries, Alexa decided that Sarah and Kevin’s entry sounded exciting and declared them winners of receiving a whole day wedding coverage. Here she tells us about why they were chosen and what she thought of the day, plus we get to see some of her favourite images from the day.
“I adored photographing Sarah and Kevin’s wedding and I am so pleased that we chose them as winners of the Mr and Mrs Unique competition. Full of London adventure, homemade goodies, beautiful flowers, gorgeous colours, thoughtful details, an awesome indie playlist and a whole lot of love.
When they first contacted me with their entry, they sounded like they were just my kind of couple – laid back, friendly and looking for a wedding that was fun and perfectly suited to their personalities. And they were so smiley in the picture they attached I couldn’t wait to get to know them!
The day was one of the most happy weddings I have ever photographed, so much positive energy and love in the room. Sarah and Kev got married at Marylebone Town Hall and decided to meet each other before the ceremony, which was the most incredible moment to photograph.
Sarah wore a beautiful dress by Charlotte Casadejus (from Luella’s Boudoir) and her bridesmaids dressed in a mix of light coloured dresses that complimented each other, while Kev and his best man were rocking some gorgeous blue suits.
After the ceremony their guests piled onto a red London routemaster and there was tour of London en route to the Balham Bowls Club where they had their reception. The pub has a vintage vibe with an amazing atmosphere. Kevin and Sarah added to this with their table decor and served up pie and mash – delicious!
Their guests had taken part in a competition to fill to desert table, the most amount of delicious homemade cakes ever seen. There was not a dry eye in the house when it was time for the speeches and it was amazing to watch as everyone filled the dance floor into the night.
I absolutely adored photographing Sarah and Kevin’s wedding, and it was amazing to receive this card from them after they received their final images “Every time we look at the photos we relive the atmosphere, emotion and love of the day. We can’t thank you enough for choosing us to win the competition!”
Thanks as always to Alexa for sharing the competition with us, and for Sarah & Kevin for being such a bloody fab couple! Your photos are amazing… wouldn’t expect anything less from Alexa Xx
