I often receive inquiries about small or intimate weddings and love photographing them. Tanya and Zhewei had an Islington Register Office wedding before hopping into a limousine that took us to St Pancras for a family lunch. They had cleverly planned going to Paris on the Eurostar, so had only to cross a platform to be on their way.

 

 

 

 

While Zhewei waited in the council chamber, Tanya saw the registrars before arriving on her mother’s arm. It seemed that Zhewei and his father like to pace the floor while his mother appears a little calmer.

Zhewei’s talented brother played the entire Mendelssohn’s Wedding March while the signing of the register took place, which is quite a bit longer than the excerpt I’ve heard previously. He also played the more whimsical waltz from Amelie.

 

Here is one proud mother.

Tanya and Zhewei had asked for portraits that showed off the architecture of Islington Town Hall. It has some stunning original features and its steps are the centrepiece of the building.

Do we need any more reasons to celebrate?
