Caroline and Jack’s wedding at Kings Chapel in Amersham, with hints of a Danish theme, was just spectacular. With games throughout, which included a custom of guests tapping a glass in front of them, which resulted in the wedding couple having to stand on a chair to kiss. Or guests would stamp their feet, which meant the couple had to jump under the table! This wedding was such a fantastic cultural experience and a real joy to photograph. Check it all out below.
First names: Jack & Caroline
Ages: 27 & 26

How did you guys meet, tell me all?
Like the modern people we are, we swiped right on Tinder and immediately bonded over both of us being incredibly sarcastic people. After 7 months of talking and one unplanned move back to Denmark on Caroline’s behalf, we finally went on our first date to a food festival at Alexandra Palace which went so well that Jack flew to Copenhagen for our second date shortly after, and that was that.
How did you get engaged, is there a cool story?
We were in Budapest celebrating our second anniversary. We’d gone to Margaret Island for a picnic and were swapping anniversary presents, when Jack pulled out a ring box he’d be carrying around all week and proposed. It was 38 degrees and we were too dehydrated to cry (although we both wanted to) and it turned out we’d stopped and settled down just round the corner from a beautiful rose garden which would’ve been the perfect cliché proposal spot, but it was amazing nonetheless.
What made you choose your wedding venue, did you look at many?
Our top priority when looking for a venue was that there was enough on-site accommodation to house all of our travelling family and friends, while also it being somewhere cosy (hygge if you must) in nice surroundings. Caroline’s family lives in Denmark and Jack’s in Bournemouth so we wanted to find somewhere in the middle of both, that also wasn’t too far away from where we live in London. Kings Chapel was the first venue we saw in person and we knew immediately that we wouldn’t need to see any more as it ticked all our boxes.
What was the inspiration/theme of your wedding?
Bohemian hippie meets Scandinavian minimalism is the vibe we were trying to go for. No flowers or colours, just crisp white details and lots and lots of foliage and fairy lights. We wanted to create an informal and relaxed atmosphere, with focus on the smaller details.
What is your first song and why?
We went with ‘No Pressure’ by The Kooks for our first dance. We knew we absolutely didn’t want any of the popular “wedding” songs, and we love The Kooks and thought the lyrics and message of this song suited us and the occasion perfectly.
What would be your number one tip to other couples planning their wedding?
Listen to yourselves and do things the way YOU want to and really resist the urge to please family and friends, because pleasing yourselves and listening to your gut will make them just as happy in the end. And get rid of traditions you don’t care for and invent new ones.
