We first met Osma and Zain in front of the red fire engine outside the National Theatre in London. It’s the photography equivalent of saying ‘I’ll be the one wearing the red rose.’ We all hit it off right from the start, and the engagement shoot was a lot of fun, so we were pretty excited for their wedding at the Royal Exchange in London. Zain and Osma very, very kindly put us up in the beautiful Threadneedles Hotel just 2 minutes walk away from the Royal Exchange, and the place where Osma and Zain were getting ready for their big moment. My schedule with Zain started a little later than Erica’s with Osma, so I joined in with the bridal preparations for a while to get a few shots from a different angle and to capture the details. It was a real pleasure to be part of their wedding and to be there to tell the story through our photographs. Thank you Zain and Osma and we hope you enjoy your photographs.
Did I go overboard on the shoe shots? I don’t think so.

Check out Zain’s poker face. It’s either the best in the world, or the worst. But I suppose the fact that I can’t tell means it’s the former?
Time to buttonhole up.
The Royal Exchange.
It rained, but it was no big deal.
Rain, but with some well-timed backlighting for Osma’s entrance to the ceremony.
