The Sharp Edge Photo team met David and the boys in the pub one hour before the ceremony was due to begin. David was in a relaxed mood as he greeted us warmly on our arrival. It was a great location just a short walk from Chelsea Old Church, to calm the pre-wedding nerves with a couple of pints of ale! David reported that everyone he had met that day had asked him if he was nervous! We heard a few tales of the boys exploits on the Stag Do in Berlin, which coincided with Germany winning the World Cup.
Sneshka and I first met Genesis and David on their engagement shoot a few months ago. David is a quietly spoken Burnley lad who likes a pint, Genesis is a confident chatty Londoner. Together they are a warm and caring couple who are clearly made for each other.
Chelsea Old Church has a history going back centuries, weddings have been taking place on this site since 1292. Notably Henry VIII was married here. The Church was badly damaged in 1941 after a parachute land mine landed on the Western side in 1941. Thankfully this historic church has been beautifully restored for it’s ‘Biggest ever day!’ I quote Reverend David Reindorp, speaking of Genesis and David’s nuptials. The Sharp Edge Photo team must take this opportunity to thank Reverend David for allowing us to take photographs in his beautiful historic church.
As guests arrived at the Church, there were lots of hearty hugs, kisses and well wishes for David, who was showing no signs of nerves on his wedding day.
Genesis arrived with her Father and Bridesmaids promptly for the 2pm service. I’m sure you agree she looked stunning. Her Father was rightly proud. David is a lucky man. I believe the next set of photo’s speak for themselves.
A beautiful service for a lovely couple. Credit and thanks to Chelsea Old Church and Reverend David for allowing us to capture these special moments.
Please look out for the next instalments of Genesis and David’s epic Wedding Celebration!
