Larena went to school with Tom's sister, and so they knew of each other for a few years, but they first met properly when they lived in London (coincidentally very close to where Larena lived), they then started going to concerts together, and one thing led to another! Tom asked Larena to marry him while they were on a camping and canoeing trip down the River Wye, he proposed while they were walking up through the woodland.
Larena and Tom got married outside in a temporary makeshift open-top marquee that was constructed by them and their guests on the grounds of Knepp Castle Estate near Horsham. Their wedding was almost like a big picnic in the sunshine by the riverside while being surrounded by woodland; it had this fantastic tranquil vibe that relaxed all the guests allowing me to photograph everyone naturally enjoying the day.
When Tom first contacted me he told me that he's an architect; he also said that he loved my use of natural geometry and proportion that I use in my photographs. This gave me the excuse to go symmetry crazy, and I instantly wanted to start photographing their wedding like a Wes Anderson movie. I was with Larena and Tom for around 7 hours on their wedding day at Knepp Castle and the time flew by as there was so much for me to document; there was a ton of details, never-ending beautiful scenery, guests playing table-tennis and outside speeches.
