Gordon x Shanique Made in NOTTINGHAM, SEALED IN LEYTON
Although this wedding was about 2 months ago; it almost feels an age as so much has happened in that time.
Gordon & Shanique tied the knot in the same church as James & Nicole; on 28th March 2021 which is also where they first met.
Their friendship was kindled on a church organised trip to Nottingham. On the day Shanique was unwell with a cold and reluctant to talk let alone entertain Gordon's energetic and bubbly personality.
Coincidentally or intentionally; they sat together on the minibus where 2 hours flowed by as they were immersed in conversation.
Throughout the day's events; they stole away to continue chatting.
There were many more chanced encounters at get togethers organised by common friends where they continued their discovery of each other.
After a few more of these semi-coincidental meets; they finally exchanged numbers to great relief as neither of em "had to wait till the next random meeting to speak to each other".
Weeks later; Gordon asked Shanique out, months later they were ring shopping in London's Hatton gardens and soon after that Gordon proposed and the rest was history.
Due to Covid restrictions; the couple decided to postpone their wedding to 2021. After many tentative months and fluid plans; they decided to exchange vows in small ceremony joined by a small group of their loved ones.
The weather was well behaved with diffuse light from the clouds making my job easy to capture beautiful moments.
