Festival of Love…

Once in while when I’m scrolling through Facebook I come across a photo and BOOM I’m totally in love with it! The engagement shoot in question was taken by Mr & Mrs Unique supplier Sharon Cooper Photography and I quickly emailed asking to feature it!

Whats not to love.. the couple, the love that shows through the photos, the location, the art, the COLOUR!!!! Man, Im a colour kind of girl through and through.. in fact Im going to make sure I go and visit the exhibition this summer! Woohoo!

Here the couple Matthew and Scarlet tell us a bit about their day, working with Sharon and their plans for the future:

Engagement shoot location…

The Festival of Love, Royal Festival Hall, London

Why did you choose that location…

Though we don’t really have much of an emotional connection to London, both of us really love the architecture of the South Bank. We have great memories of dancing to Greg Wilson on the terrace of the Festival Hall during the Vintage Festival a few years back, so when we saw they were doing a Festival of Love it seemed perfect.

Your reason for wanting to do an engagement shoot…

We wanted to be able to meet Sharon beforehand and get used to having our photograph taken before the wedding day itself. We want to be able to relax and enjoy the day without having to worry about having sunglasses ready for every camera.

How you met…

We met on a tiny New York-based internet music forum in 1999 and were brought together by a love of obscure disco records (of which we now have an ever-growing collection)

What are you looking forward to…

Even more than dancing, drinking and dessert, we are looking forward to the ceremony. Saying our vows to each other in that magical place surrounded by our friends and family is something we’ve looked forward to for a long time.

Plans for the wedding…

It’s taking place in the most amazing location – the Sussex University Meeting House. It was important to us to find somewhere that felt awe-inspiring and beautiful, but that also fitted with our (very picky) tastes.

It took us two years of combing through all sorts of places, including observatories, sculpture gardens and even what turned out to be a water pumping station before eventually managing to find one that looks like a disco in a spaceship. We can’t wait for our friends and family to see it.

We’ve made almost all the decorations and other accoutrements ourselves and there are nods to lots of the things Matthew and I really love. We don’t really want to give anything else away before the day… 

Tell us about the engagement shoot and what you loved…

It was lovely to be able to take a day away from wedding preparations and spend it canoodling (and drinking gin) instead. The South Bank is always good during the day when it’s less crowded and the Festival of Love itself was great.

One of the exhibits featured an impromptu karaoke session, which we commandeered with a spirited duet of Starman, before wandering into a mock-up of the Jackie office and striking various poses as agony aunts. There was a great selection of advice notes on the wall that was fortunately more heartwarming than heartbreaking.

We enjoyed getting to know Sharon and spent lots of time drinking and chatting, which really helped to put us at ease. Our only regret was not being able to fit in an IMAX movie before the train home.

Congratulations Matthew & Scarlet! Thanks for sharing your photos with us and good luck for Saturday as I believe that is the big day! Wishing you all the best for the future and can’t wait to see your photo by Sharon!

A big thanks to Sharon as well for sharing these epic photos with us, it made me a very happy girl!
