Bride and groom in the grounds of the crooked billet pub in henley on thames. Creative wedding photography by Anna B PhotosgraphySuper-cool, super-chic, there aren’t enough superlatives to describe the wedding of Georgina and Gareth. I knew from the moment I met them on their pre-wedding shoot that they were going to rock. And rock they did.

A modern twist on a classic British love story, Georgina and Gareth met in a pub. Fast forward a few years and they hosted what might have been the coolest wedding I’ve shot yet. In fact, cool might have been invented for the two of them, Georgina a strategy director for Cosmopolitan magazine and Gareth a Sales Manager.

Gareth and Georgina were both camped out at the Hotel Du Vin in the centre of the town, so I started the day there. The rooms overlook the famous river and surrounding countryside, visible even from the roll top baths – which I have on good authority from Gareth, having indulged in one on his wedding morning.

I got some classic man shots with Gareth, his father and best friend Foxy enjoying some pre-wedding drinks in The Bull. Of course, I have to mention his suit – sartorial on steroids. Resplendent in blue, he was indeed. The fashion stakes were certainly high, but no one could top the get up of Georgina. Absolutely, eye-wateringly stunning in her bo-ho Rembo dress with a bang on trend choker.

Fusion violinist, Joel Grainger played throughout the service, the backdrop to which was a massive G&G and then it was on to The Crooked Billet, the place where Kate Winslet and Jim Threapleton famously ate bangers and mash for their wedding breakfast. It wasn’t bangers and mash for these guys though, far from it. Oysters, king prawns – and that was just for canapés. A feast would perhaps be the best way to describe the fayre, enjoyed by the 90 guests in a huge marquee to the rear of the pub, atmospherically lit solely by candles and the best wedding sign I have ever seen – TIL DEATH DO US PARTY.

At this point I definitely have to mention the band, Alive, who were from Brighton. No first dance, just straight into the party – by-passing our planned group and couple shots and rightly so. It was kicking off and they wanted to get involved. And I’ve got some party shots like no other as a result.

Congratulations G&G. You were awesome and your wedding and party was one to remember for a long long time.
