Last weekend we were invited to photograph the wedding of Chrissy Lauze and Chad Lum at the Purple Hill Auction House in Thorndale, northeast of London. It was cold. Oh it was cold, but the wedding party were troopers and braved the frigid weather for some outdoor shots. Chrissy had a beautiful wedding dress – in fact, she had three. In a nod to Chinese wedding tradition, Chrissy disappeared twice only to reappear in a different dress, including a stunning red dress made for her in China. After the ceremony there was a team of horses offering wagon rides, a visit from Santa himself, and great toasts from friends and family. The evening was rounded out with a fun and passionate bride’s dance followed by a touching father of the bride dance. He sang to her as they danced to his recording of You’re Gonna Miss This. He sang with joy and gusto. She cried. The end.
Chrissy and Chad, thank you for inviting us to share your day with you and we wish you the best of luck and love in your life together.
