Wedding at Villa Bologna
Kim & Charles's Maltese and Irish fusion wedding.
Since the beginning of my time photographing weddings in Malta, I've known Kim. We would be continually bumping into each other as I photographed bridal preparations throughout Malta. Kim is an amazing and very popular wedding makeup artist. Kim, originally from Ireland, is one of those people that you just warm to instantly and her now Maltese husband Charles is just the same.
Since Kim works alongside many other wedding photographers in Malta. I was delighted that they both decided to give me the honour and huge responsibility to photograph their very important day.
Like many couples, both Kim and Charles (Charles more so) really don't like being in front of a camera and didn't want to look uncomfortable in photos, wanting to look natural and relaxed (as they are in person) on their wedding day. They booked me for an engagement session in Malta's capital city of Valletta 6 weeks before the big day. These engagement session's are a great opportunity to get to know your wedding photographer and how he/she will work with you. This gets everyone more comfortable with being in front of the lens as well as getting some beautiful images. We had a great session with everyone feeling relaxed and having fun, especially Charles, who really started to enjoying himself.
On the day of the wedding, both Kim and Charles where familiar with me and how I work which instantly melts the ice that will be there when working with someone new.
The day was a blast and Kim & Charles's infectious sense of fun and humour spread to everyone present celebrating their day with them. They are such a beautiful couple who are truly full of love for one another. Both Veronica and I are so very happy to be able call them our friends. Looking forward to our next Aperol Spritz together soon.
The marriage ceremony of Kim & Charles was held at their local Parish Church of St Catherine in Żurrieq. The wedding reception as held in the gardens of the beautiful Maltese wedding venue Villa Bologna.
