Today I am thrilled to share this English and Korean Wedding beautifully fusing the two cultures and stunningly shot by Jamie Penfold of Memories and Emotions.

Jamie shares his recollections of S.J and Elizabeths Wedding,
“We doubt you would have covered a wedding like ours before.” That’s what SJ and Elizabeth said when I first met them. Try me!……and then when they finished telling me about their wedding plans my response was “No, I haven’t covered anything quite like that!”
“This was going to be a two part day. Traditional Church of England wedding in Tynemouth with reception at Alnwick Garden, followed by a Korean Wedding Service in the evening.”
“On the morning of the wedding, Elizabeth and SJ were getting ready in flats at opposite ends of the green in Tynemouth. They could potentially see each other if they had wanted. Elizabeth admitted that the previous night she had seen SJ wandering about in the flat he was staying.”
“In both flats it was all very light hearted, lots of jokes and silliness. Perfect to remove those pre-wedding nerves! Now I felt quite at home with Elizabeth’s family because they’re from Essex where my family originate from. So I found myself slipping into the Essex twang every so often….and some were West Ham supporters too.”
“At the church the guests were arriving and were joined by the two pageboys who were kitted out in traditional Korean outfits. They were so colourful!”
