Golden Palace Wedding: Fiona & Mark

Fiona and I have known each other for a few years as she used to run a wedding suppliers networking group I used to attend when I got back into photographing weddings. She met Mark through a friend’s husband and they hit it off right away and excitement in her voice every time she spoke about him was contagious. I shot their Green Park engagement session a few weeks before their wedding so head over there if you want to see some of those photos.

They were married at Palmers Green United Reformed Church with friends from Fiona’s gospel group providing music throughout the service. Having personal touches in a wedding make the day so much more memorable and unique to you and nothing beats having friends and family being integral to your day.

After the service, we headed to Broomfield Park and just as we were finishing, the heavens suddenly opened and we were all huddled under a canopy until it passed just as quickly as it began! Fiona and Mark’s Jamaican/Ghanian fusion brought together a mix of traditions including the Ghanian tradition of the wedding party dancing into the reception hall at the Golden Palace Venue followed by the bride and groom before the guest sat down for the wedding breakfast.

It was a a fantastic day, great celebration and the bringing together of two large families. Enjoy the photo highlights of their day.
