It's been just over a year since we made the bold move to uproot our lives and relocate to London. Career wise it was a tough decision as I was getting booked for more and more weddings in Australia and making the move to London would mean that I would be pretty much starting over. However, the journey we have walked since being here and the foundations that have been laid can only be described as immensely essential and rewarding for my future, not only as a photographer but also in my marriage with my best friend.
Not having shot a wedding in a little over a year I was very much 'chomping at the bit' to jump back into shooting weddings. When I received the call for this one, knowing it was going to be a Royal Wedding, I knew it was going to be epic!
Izzy is a bubbly yet humble British girl who is a massively talented singer/songwriter with a huge future ahead of her. She embarked on a journey to Australia to further her studies and a new adventure. Little did she know that she would meet her prince to be.
Arrigo (or Heinrich XXVI Prince Reuss, as he is legally known) descends from the German Monarch making him a legit royal. Under the assumption that it's every girls dream to become a princess, Arrigo literally made this happen for Izzy when she became 'Princess Isabel Ruess' at the altar on their wedding day.
Being February in the UK it's pretty much a certainty that it's either going to be raining, cloudy, freezing cold or all of the above. But something amazing happened that day on the 02.02.13. The clouds parted and the sun shone... brightly!
All I can say is that this wedding was amazing; the people, the location, the weather and the food were all outstanding. This will certainly be a wedding to remember!
Arrigo + Izzy, you guys are legends. Thank you for letting me capture your day.
