Hennessy Wedding

Yes their last name is Hennessy. Yes they are one of the most beautiful weddings I’ve ever been to. Yes they are my ideal couple. As artists themselves, their attention to detail made the wedding day what it was, yet they also understood my role as the photographer to capture those details in my own way. They are also by far one of the most laid back people I have ever met, it was truly about enjoying the experience rather than fulfilling a tradition or ritual or family request. It’s the type of wedding where if you had access to a mansion and catering for one night, any night, you would invite your closest friends for some good food, dancing, and even some karaoke! In fact when I asked them if they wanted to take family portraits, they said “later”. Well in all honesty, I still can’t remember if “later” ever happened. It was also about sharing the most beautifully written vows I have ever heard, I wish I had the transcript.

At the end of the night there was no usual announcement for last dance or end of the party, I watched the two lovers walk away into the distance without goodbyes to anyone. The guests casually dispersed as if they would all see each other the next day. Their theme centered around time, though I did not ask what the significance was to them, I think you can come up with your own conclusions from the images. The rustic mansion at the Alder Manor reminded me of ruins from a Tomb Raider game.

I truly wish all weddings were about enjoying the experience, while keeping traditions as a reminder of our cultural backgrounds, but not to run the show.

    The shot where bride is on the chaise lounge feels very Bonnie and Clydeish, just needs a couple tommy guns. That mansion looks awesome, just from the exteriors.
