Natasja and Grant are the kind of people who just radiate happiness. I absolutely loved documenting their wedding day, as it was what weddings are all about - love, family, happiness, and things that matter and mean something. Natasja and Grant met while studying at London Business School. They went to South Bank for their first date (where they had their pre-wedding photoshoot), and ended up standing on a bridge, overlooking the Thames and Big Ben, and looking at each other... Then Grant said "I think I like you", and Natasja replied "I think I like you too"... The rest is history as they say :-) Couple of years later they were getting married in London, surrounded by their family and friends, who came from all over the world. 
Natasja got ready at their home, together with her best friend and her parents. It was an intimate and perfect morning))

The beautiful Tiffany rings were placed on a little cushion made by Natasja's mum using fabric from her wedding dress. So sweet:

Natasja's purse was custom made in Japan (a nod to part of Grant's family traditions) using fabric from a kimono: 

Grant picked up his bride from their home on the way to the ceremony. I think everyone cried happy tears when they first saw each other on the day, including me)) They were standing at the exact spot where they first kissed a couple of years ago... 

Do you like my tie? :)

Having this sort of First Look meant that we had time for portraits before the ceremony. We went to beautiful St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel, and were shooting inside and around it. The location also had a special meaning, as Natasja used to live very close to it, and she saw the hotel covered in scaffolding and everything. It is now restored and is opened.

I like it that Natasja's parents are holding hands while waiting for the ceremony to begin:

Because so many guests came from different countries, Natasja and Grant hired an old London Bus to have a short tour for everyone to see the city. We hopped off at London Eye for the views over the Thames and a few photos:

Bride and groom held an informal reception at the Opera Tavern in Covent Garden:

Natasja and Grant - huge thank you for having me as part of your wedding! You two are such wonderful people and so perfect for each other! Wishing the best of the best! Dasha x
