An amazing Anglo/French wedding, that featured a mid afternoon safari in a wild animal reserve, was how Alex & Helene choose to celebrate their marriage – and it was EPIC!

When Alex & Helene first told me their wedding plans, we were having a cup of tea in their home just outside St Ives in Cambridgeshire, and my first thoughts were ‘a wild animal park in St Ives?’ – they of course had much bigger plans, and had in fact booked the wonderful Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, situated down in among the beautiful rolling hills of the Kent countryside!

The day itself went so quickly – Alex and Helene really are one of the most fun & relaxed couples I worked with in 2015 – and it didn’t feel like work at all! Alex & Helene have a wonderful group of family and friends, so many characters it’s hard to not mention all of them, but I was particularly amused by Helenes father who was brilliant fun all day. The highlight for me, aside from photographing some of my favourite bride & groom portraits, was the safari that the whole wedding party went on around the awesome park! We got to see lions, buffalo, rhinos, jackels, giraffes and loads more on a totally private tour of the whole park – immense fun!

All in all, it was a fantastic day, really topped off by the lovely heartfelt genuine emotion displayed by Alex during his speech – the guy has a huge heart and he and Helene are a perfect match! Félicitations aux jeunes mariés pour leur heureuse union!
