I’ve never photographed a wedding quite like the wedding of Jack Garratt’s and Sarah’s Eladbi. “Wedding” might not even be completely the right word. It was more of a wedding merged into epic musical event.
It was their tie to the music industry that caused Jack and Sarah to meet in the first place. Jack is a musician and Sarah was interning at a London record label when they crossed paths. So it was their London wedding brought their relationship in a full circle.
For their ceremony, they found the upper floor of what is now Eat Native on Southwark Street. With an incredible floral circle backdrop, Jack and Sarah read their personal vows to each other and had an intimate ceremony was lead by a close friend. After they tied the knot and made everything official, Jack and Sarah and all of their guests were lead down to the reception by a brass band playing Stevie Wonder’s “For Once in My Life”
Jack and Sarah aren’t your traditional couple, so of course, they didn’t pick a traditional wedding venue. Because of their music industry connections, they were lucky enough to have their wedding reception at the amazing OMEARA, which on a normal night you can find gigs from some incredible artists from around the world.
Naturally, a big part of Jack and Sarah’s wedding was music. Even during the speeches, Jack’s mum played the harp with Jack singing a surprise song to Sarah. Afterwards, there were two sets of live music throughout the night from many of their wedding guests featuring a lot of their favourite songs.
On top of the live music all evening, there was relaxed and fun handheld food with no seated dinner, a magician making the rounds, an audio guest book in a vintage telephone booth, showings of Jack and Sarah’s favourite Pixar films, an incredible dessert bar baked by a GBBO winner.
Sarah and Jack- Thank you so much for having me and my assistant be apart of your amazing wedding! It was so much fun to photograph and I definitely know I’ll never see another wedding like it. Being able to witness such incredible music live was definitely one of the highlights of my year!
