Gemma and Lewis are a brilliantly funny and colourful couple inside and out! I love their whole converse-wearing-burger-tattoo rock 'n' roll vibe and the fact that they were like hey, monkey island, let's book it because it sounds cool. Sadly there are no monkeys but there were lots of dinosaur themed decor, tequila shot wedding favours and drinking skulls! Gemma got ready on the island in her garfield PJs (awesome), into a self-glittered corset and self-made tutu skirt! Her flowers were stunning and bright- designed to be like a tropical jungle that a dinosaur might roam around in! It was the first wedding I've ever shot where the couple took a group selfie as their first call-to-action getting married! They had bubbles instead of confetti and after a few group and couple shots, they sat down for dinner and speeches. The bridesmaid's speech was one of the funniest I've ever heard- she had managed to acquire Gemma's 14 year old diary entry for her ideal man... comparisons to Lewis ensued much to everyone's delight! Their cake had velociraptor toppers, complete with a cute top hat and veil. The cake got smashed into Lewis' face. The rest of the evening was seen out by the rock band they'd hired and everyone head banged their way through the night!
