FUN FUN FUN! That pretty much sums up the 3 days I spent shooting this wedding. Poppy + Karim are the nicest couple EVER! So chilled-out, loved-up, and totally made for each other. The love they have for each other (and their friends) is immense. They said they just wanted to have a great party with all their friends and family, and boy did they do that!
I could easily write a hell of a lot about this wedding, and also about this fantastic couple… but seeing as its probably the biggest wedding blog I’ve ever put together I’ll just shut up now, and let you scroll away, and be jealous that you weren’t invited to this stunning trio of weddings.
// HERE’S THE VERY LOVELY GOOGLE REVIEW POPPY+KARIM LEFT FOR ME //
We are so in love with Ed Godden. Booking him as your wedding photographer will be the absolute best decision that you make.
Ed is an unmatched and killer combination of incredibly talented, hard-working and an amazing eye behind the camera, together with being the most relaxed, kind and hilarious person.
The quality of his work - the colour, movement, vibrancy, wit and emotion - speaks for itself. We couldn’t be more delighted with the photos. On top of that he is a total pleasure to be with: friendly and warm, and able to put you completely at ease in front of the camera. It really is like hanging out with a mate. In another review someone said that it was like having a “super-talented best friend with ninja and mind-reading skills” – that is spot on! He is also very professional: he’s totally on top of all organisation and very trustworthy in that respect.
Ed kindly photographed not one, not two, but three events for us: he was equally as brilliant when it was just five of us cruising around Hackney, making jokes and stopping for beers, as he was when somehow capturing every nuanced moment of two 120-person-strong parties in Barcelona.
If you’re looking for formal family portraits or anything super traditional, someone else might be better for you. But if you’re after achingly cool, individual and hilarious photos of your human pyramid at 4am on the dancefloor, there is no one better. (Shout out to Ed’s incredible stamina for taking brilliant quality photos right through to when the venue finally threw us out!)
I won’t ruin the surprise for future clients, but the surprise pressies he throws in to the finished package are a lovely touch. My advice: book him now, and the more that you are relaxed and trust Ed to get on with doing his thing, the better!
The icing on the cake is that some of our best friends have now booked Ed for their wedding too (they actually made the booking at 3am on the dancefloor at our wedding, they were so impressed with him!) – so we get to hang out with him again in a few months’ time. See you in the human pyramid, Ed!
