Alina and Ricky – Chelsea wedding photographer London

Alina and Ricky first met when their companies moved into the same office building. She spotted him sitting alone in the boardroom one evening, studying some law papers, and thought ‘he needs me’. So she threw him an apple and smiled.

They’ve been in love ever since, and invited me to capture their Chelsea wedding.

After an epic Rolls Royce journey across London with her parents – through Abbey Road, Kensington and Marble Arch – they exchanged their vows at Chelsea Old Town Hall, followed by an elegant reception at Chelsea Harbour Hotel, where they watched the sun go down over London. Alina is from Russia, and wanted their wedding to reflect the traditions of her homeland. It was a joy to discover (and photograph) so many interesting elements from Russian wedding culture. As an art-lover, her bridal look was inspired by Vrubel’s Swan Princess, with her Belfaso gown adding a modern twist which I loved. Please take a look at some of the highlights from their day below.

Such a beautiful London wedding to photograph, and such a wonderful couple, who couldn’t be more in love if they tried!

Thank you so much for choosing me as your wedding photographer, Alina and Ricky, and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together.
