23 Dec Georgie Thompson & Sir Ben Ainslie Wedding
Georgie Thompson & Sir Ben Ainslie Wedding
On Saturday, I photographed the wedding of sports presenter Georgie Thompson and Olympic sailing champion Sir Ben Ainslie. The wedding took place at Hampton Court Palace, and although it was a private affair for the couple’s family and friends, they have released one photo to the press.
It was my last wedding of 2014 and what a fantastic wedding to end on! Happy Christmas to you all and see you in 2015….
The couple announced their engagement in October, with Olympic sailing champion Ben taking to Twitter to reveal the news.
“Picture says it all,” he wrote next to a photo of the beaming duo and their dog. “So happy to be engaged to the loveliest woman in the World. Biggles is pretty excited too!”
Georgie also tweeted their news on Twitter, adding a joke about Ben’s career: “This just in… @AinslieBen and I are getting married! Couldn’t be happier. Suspect the honeymoon may involve a boat..:)”
Ben and Georgie, who is a sports presenter for Fox and BBC, first met in 2013 and went public with their romance in New York City.
“We met through friends at an event and I don’t really know how to describe it. It was a bit of a thunderbolt moment but a thunderbolt that took years before it became anything real.” Georgie saidl in 2013.
“We were in different places, but then in April the stars aligned and it made sense to be together and we haven’t looked back since. It’s very special… he makes me very happy.”
