Blue Skies and Coral Ties: Nicola and Scott

I remember the first time I met Nicola and Scott at their house in London. They were warm, calm and considered even with Ethan as young as he was then. Getting to know them better on their engagement and family shoots at Kenwood House in Hampstead Heath, we quickly realised just what warm and caring people they are, and just how much they love each other and their dear little son.

Their wedding day at South Farm reflected their natures and their relationship beautifully. Nicola was outwardly calm and serene during her preparations, and Scott and his best men were superbly composed and happy. The weather was beautiful giving us the most gorgeous evening light to work with.

In addition to their many loving family and friends from these shores, Scott had thirty or so friends and relations travel over from Finland, and Nicola had dear friends from America and Australia. And they had all come to celebrate. Celebrate Nicola and Scott’s love and their commitment to one another. And celebrate they did – we have never seen a whole wedding party start dancing between the tables to a band’s sound check before – the guests were so much fun!

Nicola and Scott, it was pure joy to be present and document your wedding. Thank you for being so lovely. I hope you had a really wonderful honey moon.

    what fantastic photos! it was such a beautiful day and Nicola & Scott could not have wished for such professional photographers -you & Jake captured the emotions and joy of everyone without being intrusive. I was amazed to see the photos I did not realise so many had been taken and Nicola and Scott look so happy and the ones you have taken of our gorgeous grandson Ethan are fantastic. I cant stop viewing these fantastic photos and the tears of joy keep on coming.

    I’m sure that the pictures only tell part of the story though – I cant wait to hear more about it!!
