An international love affair, guests flocked from across the globe to the wedding of Dee and Tony at the Lensbury in Teddington, London; Tony is half-French and Dee is a Kiwi, so I guess that makes it a widding and not a wedding!

The day started at the Richmond Hill Hotel, the place Dee chose to spend her last night as a Miss. I captured her getting ready with her best friends and flower girls and with the champagne on ice and spirits running high Dee proved a great muse.

Arriving at the reception Tony seemed super-chilled, perhaps under the influence of the supremely relaxed registrar who oversaw a short ceremony before the newly weds walked down the aisle enveloped by bubbles and good cheer. It was an extremely poignant moment for Dee’s family as her father proudly gave her away, her mother having succumbed to her brave battle against cancer only a few months before.

As any good photographer will know, props are always good to have on hand and here Dee and Tony did not disappoint. The beautiful big balloons that bestowed the reception made for some great shots, as did the guests delight at the photo-booth which pandered to Tony’s love for the flamboyant; costumes that made their way around the dance floor all night!
