Having spurned her chosen child genius career as a cellist, Sim Canetty-Clarke has been photographing weddings for more than 20 years. Always the photographer but never the bride, she knows better than most the potential disasters of planning a wedding, having been jilted dangerously near the altar a week before her own.
Amanda Lockhart never wanted to be a wedding photographer. Ten years ago, she was in a darkroom in Brixton and was struck by how fabulous the pictures being printed by the photographer next to her were. It was an encounter that changed her life. The photographer was Sim Canetty-Clarke.
On her wedding day, writer Susannah Frieze had neither Amanda Lockhart nor Sim Canetty-Clarke as photographer, more’s the pity. Nevertheless, it was her Best Day. Six books, a decade of journalism and a few radio/TV appearances later, she’s finally writing about something she knows about.
All three met while singing. They have been known to sing at weddings… book early to avoid disappointment.
