July 9th 2020
The original wedding date and they were incredibly lucky that they were able to stick to that date. The government guidelines were changing constantly, and it left Riannah with such a fleeting amount of time to plan and finalise things. But they did it!
Starting the day off getting ready at the Petersham Hotel with her mum and three bridesmaids. Then making their way to the stunning Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park.
Riannah’s stepdad wasn’t allowed to walk her down the aisle but they decided to have a ‘first look’ outside instead.
The chairs were spaced out all across the room and decorated with delicate flowers.
To keep the numbers in keeping with the ‘rules’ a couple of guests and groomsmen, weren’t allowed in the ceremony room so they were looking in from the window. Keeping their fingers crossed the rain would hold off!
They had a gorgeous floral arch over their ceremony table and geometric glass case to hold their wedding rings.
After a beautiful ceremony, full of smiles and laughter Etta James – At last played as they signed the register.
I caught eyes with Riannah’s mum, seeing her reaction and hearing the lyrics of the song I could feel the tears welling up in my eyes!
We got a little creative for the group photos, using the pillars by the front door for spacing and lots of fun walking photos!
Finishing off with those all important couple portraits!
Riannah and Kyan you both have epic personalities, it was so much fun photographing your wedding! I hope you had an amazing day and the most incredible honeymoon <3
