Alternative, DIY, Wes Anderson themed wedding with animals.
When a couple contact you and tell you that they are getting married in a pink chapel, that the groom is making his own pink suit and that they have designed their stationary and basic theme on Wes Anderson movies, you say you will shoot their wedding! Whatever it takes.
Thankfully all it took was a quick Skype call and the deal was sealed – then I just had to wait a year for the actual wedding. I kept in touch with Jimmy and Emma over the course of the year to see how the plans were rolling out, on Instagram and Facebook as well as emails, and we got to know each other a little, so when the day finally came it felt like I was shooting the wedding of a cherished friend to be honest.
The details of this wedding blew me away – between them Emma and Jimmy designed and made very little last detail, including their beautiful stationary, the bouquets, the wedding cake (which gave Emma blisters on her hands she had made so many macaroons) and the little boxes to put them in. Jimmy even tailored his own suit and Emma made the most gorgeous crystal hairpieces for herself and bridesmaids. I’m now the proud owner of one of Jimmy’s cleverly designed enamel pins, of the pink, tin chapel in which they got married.
