Guy and Lauren

When Lauren first contacted me about photographing her wedding, I could tell there was something special about her.  The way she spoke exuded grace, a quiet confidence and a kind heart.  I couldn’t wait to meet her and Guy.  Lauren and Guy met at Zulu Bar in London and both knew from the very start that they were going to stick together.  Love couldn’t have happened to a nicer couple and we were thrilled to share their beautiful day with them.

Way to go – bravo!!

  1. I am in awe of all the beautiful images captured at this wedding! Well done Alexis for telling such a beautiful story of a couple that I don’t even know, yet after viewing your photos it feels like I’ve just been introduced to the most beautiful love story of all time.
    Congratulations to the gorgeous couple, may you have a marriage more beautiful than this perfect day! xx

  2. Lauren and Guy says:

    Alexis thank you ever so much for it ALL. I knew you were the one to photograph our wedding and you covered it from every angle and it was such a relief knowing you were there with us. You have such a good eye and you captured so many special moments in these images, the light, landscape, glances between us all plus you captured the characters we call our our friends and family :-) I can’t believe the lengths you go to in order to get your shots – perching on the top of wobbly ladders to doing the splits on our balcony you, made sure all our special moments and memories will be captured forever, you’re a pretty darn cool chick too and your ‘second shooter’ is quite the talent ;-) With so much love, thank you xxx
