POLLY AND TOM’S BROCKWELL LIDO WEDDING
I first met Polly and Tom when I photographed Polly’s sister Beth’s wedding to Josh back in 2015. I was so delighted to be asked back to photograph another family wedding, with the added bonus of meeting a new family member – Beth and Josh’s little girl, Nina.
Polly and Tom had their wedding at Brockwell Lido in Herne Hill, which was very fitting as they both bravely swim in the unheated pool on a regular basis. They even swam there with friends on the morning of the wedding, but sadly I wasn’t around to capture that…!
The day started with some casual drinks at the pub opposite, followed by an intimate ceremony overlooking the pool, where some friends and family gave thoughtful and touching readings. Polly and Tom then had the most wonderful first kiss as a finale to the ceremony, which signalled the end of the serious stuff and a start to the more relaxed party that followed. After dodging a few rain showers, the sun came out and with the palm tree-lined poolside reception, it could’ve been somewhere far from South London!
The speeches were some of the most moving and funny I have ever witnessed, it made me see how loved these two are, by their friends, family and each other.
Thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of your day. Below are my personal highlights followed by the full gallery…
