Lyndon + RenaeCentral Park, New York

A few things popped into my mind when Lyndon and Renae first approached me about being their Central Park wedding photographer in New York. I had never been to New York, let alone the U.S.A. I had heard of New York being called “The city that never sleeps” and after arriving there at midnight as the snow gently fell I suddenly realised it really was the city that never sleeps.

I did some location scouting a few days before with Renae and Lyndon and asked why a Central Park Wedding? they both laughed. Renae continued to explain how she fell in love with the place after the Waldorf wedding (for anyone who isn’t up to date with gossip girl see here haha)

That evening it snowed and snowed some more. I was kind of hoping the snow would keep falling creating a magical winter wonderland for the wedding, unfortunately it stopped a good two days before the wedding.

The day of the wedding was an overcast one, with the alleys of high rises making it seem even darker then it was. With a late ceremony it was important we got to the ceremony on time and everything was going smoothly UNTIL we jumped into a yellow cab (bad idea) what should have been a 5 minute drive turned out to be a 45 minute cab ride. The Ceremony was short and sweet under the Bethesda Terrace, but we then had to move quickly with the portraits through Central Park. The light was falling quickly but we found an empty train platform at Grand Central Station followed by a quick stop in Time Square.

As we crossed the bridge into Brooklyn and arrived out the front of the Wythe Hotel, I was suddenly taken back by the brick fortress that stood in front of me. Going inside was like taking a leap into a time machine, there was some serious history to this place. I can not wait for another opportunity to come back for another central park wedding (hopefully in summer :P) so if you’re planning a New York Destination wedding, or a wedding anywhere in America please contact me
