The Hatton Garden wedding job relates to these particular London wedding photographer’s vocation i.e. David and Joanna, on one of many great and special days this August. In plain English: we are going to talk about a shot we took last month and why. It doesn’t relate to the recent safety deposit heist that filled the headlines earlier this year, but it was one of the factors that led to this particular photo.
This is an image from Danielle and Chris’s Camden wedding when they snuck off with myself and Joanna for twenty-five minutes round the corner from Bounce. Bounce? That is a London ping pong venue where their wedding guests were enjoying something a little different before heading to the main reception. More on their day another time. Here’s the full non cropped image:
The real reason I am writing this short London wedding related blog post is that I am in the middle of editing five separate wedding days and I don’t really have the time for a full post with lots of images, and quite frankly I felt like a break! The other reason is to talk about the fact that in this country we are fascinated by these sorts of organised crime ventures. Well I know I am. The Krays biopic, Legend, is doing the cinema rounds right now, in fact I’ve just had to turn down an invite to see it in favour of editing, and others like The Italian Job, Sexy Beast and so on are enduring British film favourites. Now the perpetrators of the Hatton job have been caught, it will only be a matter of time after the trial that potential screenplays will begin winging their way to production companies.
As we were just around the corner from the Hatton Garden Safety Deposit company we couldn’t resist a couple of quick pics outside, it was certainly something for passersby to stare at and take their own iPhone versions of. In fact a couple of months earlier that’s exactly what Joanna did with myself after a meal out in Farringdon, for the obligatory Facebook post looking meaner than I am, and the following quote (see pic below) “Finally I’ve found a place to keep my ill gotten gains safe…” I’ve heard the company is now bust so I don’t know how long that particular London landmark will be around.
Ok back to editing now, another side of our London wedding job, I mean vocation!
