I want to share the Westminster Register Office wedding of Karen, Matt and their two sons at Old Marylebone Town Hall. They travelled from Norfolk to have their ceremony and celebrate with afternoon tea and all looked fabulous. The guys had their best cufflinks on and they brought a toy owl called George with them from Karen’s work, which travels to different occasions – apparently this was George’s first wedding.
While Karen was with the registrars, the small guys figured out where they were going to sit and checked they had the rings. They were so excited to be handing over the rings and seeing their mother in such a beautiful dress.
There was a first with Karen and Matt’s wedding – a high five – first with each other and then with the boys.
While Karen, Matth and their witnesses were signing the register the boys had an important job to do – last-minute checks on a reading of The Owl and the Pussycat.
Don’t you love youthful enthusiasm!
The family then headed off for afternoon tea to celebrate.
Karen and Matt let me know when they had seen their photographs: “They’re stunning and really capture the fun and informality. The boys look gorgeous and again you have captured their characters”. It was a huge pleasure to be part of such a happy day.
You know the bride and groom aren’t a conventional couple when the bride arrives at Westminster Register Office in a short and chic grey cocktail dress. Â Lynsey and Matt also saw each other on the Old Marylebone Town Hall‘s famous steps before sharing a cigarette and walking into the building together.
Lynsey and Matt check their wedding details with Mark and Emma while Lynsey’s son watches. He also walked her into the Blue Room.
As the Blue Room was full, Lynsey and Matt chose to have their family sit in the front row while they exchanged vows.
Lynsey and Matt are given a miniature chimney sweep for good luck, before driving away in a white London wedding cab to their reception drinks.
We found this gorgeous newly-painted grey wall for their wedding portraits to tone with Lynsey’s dress. Â We also found a less freshly-painted wall next door – a perfect contrast. The front door green is one of my favourite colours.
Claire and Tim’s wedding last year was just the most joyous day with both of them getting ready together beforehand in Blake’s Corfu Suite before their ceremony at Chelsea Register Office and a reception at Daphne’s. We’ve just put together their day into a Queensberry flush-mount album design with chocolate leather cover blind embossed with their names. I love their design, incorporating 20 of Claire and Tim’s favourite wedding photographs and how it distills the story of their wedding day.
Here are a few of my favourite layouts.
Rachel and Matthew married about two months ago at Westminster Register Office with a reception at The Fellow in north London and I’m now able to post some photographs from their wedding. Rachel and Matthew wanted their day captured as it happened with virtually no staged portraits or groups – so here you are.
Megan and Michael’s wedding at Westminster Register Office Yellow Room was on one of London’s early spring days, where the sun shone for their ceremony and their walk across Marylebone Road to the Landmark Hotel for their reception afterwards.
