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.
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.
Catching up on posts from last month – and here is Maria and Anton’s wedding with their son Leo, who I had photographed about a year ago as a ‘bump’ and then as a newborn. Maria and Anton’s wedding was in the yellow room at Westminster Register Office at the Old Marylebone Town Hall and Leo chose this week to start walking.
After the ceremony itself, the registrars suggested that Anton bring his bride over to the table where they would sign the register – a suggestion he took literally.
Maria, Anton and their guests went a few minutes down the road to Orrery, also in Marylebone for lunch and we took some time out for portraits.
Maria and Anton’s friends had baked a beautiful loaf for them to have with salt and vodka to start their married life.
Marsha and Anton married today in what has been a whirlwind week with Anton also accepting a job in Moscow and their son, Leo starting to walk. I first met Marsha about a year ago when she had a maternity session, then we photographed Leo when he was about a week old, along with his parents and baby things. Their ceremony was at Westminster Register Office, followed by lunch at Orrery in Marylebone High Street. Here’s a single from their wedding … and it was so very difficult to choose just one.
