A Secret Wedding in Richmond

Alexandra really wanted a cool, sixties style dress for her wedding but she knew that her relatives would prefer something more traditional. The compromise? A First Look photoshoot AND a secret wedding! I was privileged to witness both. Yassir and Alexandra are an adorable couple and I have no doubt that they will have a wonderful life together. Their wedding flowers were created by Orchidya, who put together a spectacular ball of orchids for the first look and a more low key, toss-able bouquet for the wedding day itself. This was hilariously caught by the lovely Lisa, who appeared very unkeen to be the next in line. I loved getting to know Alexandra and Yassir. Russian Alexandra has a great sense of clarity and feels like a bit of a soulmate to me. And Iraqi Yassir is a true gentleman! Long life and happiness to you both.The lovely Nina Bains did the make up for both occasions.As ever, click on the thumbnails to view the images properly.
