Goodenough college london wedding | RACHEL & FRED

CANDID WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Rachel and Freds wedding at Goodenough college was a joyful celebration in the middle of London’s fashionable Bloomsbury. Normally based in Nairobi, the couple were returning to London to get married and I was really looking forward to a day of colour, culture and a fusion of Kenyan and English wedding traditions. It didn’t disappoint plus I got to photograph one of the proudest grooms I have ever seen, standing at the alter in one of Islingtons finest churches. I had met Rachel and Fred for an engagement shoot earlier in the summer and we’d strolled around the Highbury fields where Rachel had grown up and we joked about how often Goodenough would feature in the speech punchlines. The last laugh was on me when Fred revealed his father, who was a very accomplished photographer, had given Fred the  middle name ‘Leica’ -  after his favourite camera  ..no pressure then!

On the day, I went straight to the very beautiful St. Mary’s church where Fred’s immediate family had travelled from Kenya bringing a burst of vibrancy with traditional dress, flowers and hair beading.  Following the ceremony, we all took a Routemaster and headed to the Goodenough college where the guests mingled and a jazz band played in the background. Rachel and Fred didn’t want to pose for many portraits but there was plenty to photograph candidly - between the love they had for each other and the pride so evident in their parents faces and guests and it was a pleasure to be a part of it.
