Kristina and Steven married in St Peter’s Italian Church in London, what a joy that was to shoot! Not only because of what a vibrant building the church is but also because Italian weddings are far more laid back.  Padre Andrea was very welcoming and it’s unusual to be allowed such freedom to move around in a church service.

After the ceremony we headed off to Bishop’s Stortford to the nearby Pledgdon Barn that had been superbly decorated, Kristina has some excellent ideas. Including an ice sculpture through which you could drink shots!
A lot of dancing, laughter and blue steel action was to be had, a perfect start to their lives together.

To see more of their wedding I urge you to check out the wonderful wedding film by Philip Smith Visuals. Phil is always an utter pleasure to work with and his work speaks for itself as you can see.
