Every time I look at this image, from Jodi and Simon’s wedding at the Hyatt Regency Churchill in Portman Square, central London, I just can’t help but smile at the memory.
Simon is a naturally quiet, polite and well-mannered young guy – but also a loving father and a rock to his family. So when the wedding band at the Hyatt Regency Churchill struck up with one of Simon’s favourite tracks, by the band Oasis, Simon was encouraged up with Jodi, his beautiful bride, to sing along in front of all their adoring fans, ahem, I mean wedding guests. Lost in the music and the moment there was a split second where Simon let go of his good old-fashioned British reserve and was a sneering, attitude filled Liam Gallagher the rock star. It was a brilliant moment that captured the great fun and amazing atmosphere of Jodi and Simon’s wedding day.
Like I said at the outset, the photo always brings back fond and fantastic memories – which is exactly the job of wedding photojournalism, in capturing those real moments and genuine emotions that are part of a unique wedding story for the couple. That wedding story is the basis of memories they will recollect months, years and decades later.
