It was always the dream job, to be flown to New York to shoot a wedding, and that’s exactly what I did a few years back.
Destination weddings are always going to be top of any wedding photographers list. I had shot a wedding just before in Gibraltar and was lucky enough to get a call on the back of that!
3 months later and there I was waiting to board my virgin Atlantic flight from Heathrow to JFK. Excited was now an understatement! All the camera gear was packed and I was looking forward to spending a week in New York, shooting a wedding, and greeting the happy couple!
The wedding took place on a beautifully classic styled yacht called the Manhattan. We left Chelsea Piers and sailed out on to the Hudson River over towards Liberty Island, The anchor was then dropped and the ceremony was conducted with the Statue of Liberty in the background.
After the ceremony had finished, the yacht then took us on a 3 hour cruise to see the sights of New York from the river.
Here are some of my favourite photos from the wedding.
