SS Great Britain Wedding Photography: It’s fair to say I was really looking forward to meeting Harvey and Cara! When Harvey emailed me initially to enquire whether I was free to shoot his SS Great Britain wedding later in September, I noticed he was the Captain of a luxury yacht in the British Virgin Islands and Cara was an award winning chef who provided guests with a whole host of mouth watering culinary delights throughout their time on board. It seemed fitting therefore that they chose a nautical themed venue for their wedding and it also seemed a perfect place too for a coffee and initial meet up with a few ‘practice’ shots along the quayside for good measure.
Harvey arrived first and then mid conversation Cara appeared looking fabulously glamorous in her blue sailor dress and amazing hair. Sometimes very little direction is required with couples as they have such great chemistry and complement each other so well and I knew I’d struck gold here and that we were going to get some really fun shots from our morning together. After a tour round the SS Great Britain (which I must say is a truly amazing experience and well worth doing whether you are getting married or not…), we made our way out to the dock side and started snapping away.
I can honestly say I had as much fun as these two and really can’t wait for their wedding day in a couple of weeks on board this amazing ship. Somehow, when I look at the pictures it seems like we almost swapped Bristol for Monaco! Have a look and see what you think and make sure you keep an eye out for my blog following their wedding day later this month – it’ll be fun!
