A super emotional Columbian wedding with cheeky samba moves..

Every girl’s dream is to wear a white dress, walk down the aisle and finally marry their prince. Monica and Renan were no different, and their Columbian wedding was nothing else but beautiful.! The couple seemed like the most graceful people, and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding and watch them dance the samba!

From the moment I have walked into Monica’s house, I knew that day would be extraordinary! Imagine eight stunning women and two cutest girls running around, making sure every little detail is perfect and ready to make its way down to the church. It was lovely and full of fun to spend my morning with all those ladies. While Monica was having her dress tightened, she said “do me up as the did it in Titanic” – defiantly made me chuckle! If I had to pick one moment from my time there, this would be it!

The day

St Francis de Sales R.C church looked magical! Fantastic interior with really high ceiling and room for hundreds of people. Monica and Renan decided to perform their marriage vows in front of their family and close friends and later celebrated with confetti showers.

The wedding reception took place at Grand Palace in London, which they’d decorated with peach and white details. Their three-tier wedding cake was full of sparkling gems, and the cake topper looked exactly like Monica and Renan. It was gorgeous.

It was a cold yet bright day, which was what the couple had hoped for in December. While the guests hung around drinking a bubble, we wandered off to Alexandra Palace for creative portraits of the newlyweds and their bridal party. My favourite photo from our portrait session is the one where Monica is about to kiss Renan with the bright white light behind them. It looked so magical. 

After the meal there were a few heart-melting speeches, father-daughter dance, then the couple had their first dance, and the party have officially kicked. Once samba kicked off – the dancefloor was fully on!

The couple

Monica and Renan have built a cute family of four. It was a big privilege to be able to photograph their perfect day. Here’s their beautiful Columbian wedding!

Their words

“I had the perfect vision of what I wanted my London wedding photographs to look like, or so I thought, and then Kay photographs the whole day and presents me with pictures I could have never imagined. The photographs were exquisite; I can’t thank her enough I am beyond grateful.”

If you are planning to get married in London – don’t hesitate and get in touch!
