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.
I didn’t get a chance to put up a complete post from Liz + Craig’s Brighton wedding a few months ago so wanted to show some extracts from their wedding album, complete with beach huts and an ice-cream seller.
This is their beach-themed cover with a summery feel.
This is Liz before she walked down the aisle at Brighton’s Hilton Hotel – these are two of Liz and Craig’s favourites listed for their album.
After their ceremony, Liz and Craig had hired a horse-drawn carriage to take them to their reception hotel further along the coast.
Their family and friends were a friendly, happy group, tucking into seaside favourites of fish and chips followed by cones of ice-cream outside, which was hugely popular with everyone.
Given that we had fine weather – not always a given – beach portraits with Liz and Craig finished off their album.
Yesterday was the Brighton wedding of Liz and Craig, who had engagement portraits last year on Brighton Pier. Â It was a thrill to work with them both again at their wedding ceremony at the Hilton Metropole in Brighton and later at another hotel further along the beachfront which involved fish and chips and an ice-cream seller. Â Here is a single image of the two of them exchanging their vows during their civil ceremony reflected in a mirror strip on the wall; the full blog post will be up in a week or two.
Amy and Luke’s wedding day started with their ceremony in Westminster Register Office’s Purple Room, moved onto a Routemaster bus and finished with dinner and their party at Camden Town’s Gilgamesh in Camden Lock, London.
The boys were first – checking in at Westminster Register Office’s reception – then checking the rings were in order.
Amy and her father go through paperwork with Westminster registrar Anna in the Lord Mayor’s Waiting Room.
Luke watches for Amy and her father entering the Purple Room.
A personalised reading from a friend.
One wedding ring – successfully delivered to the groom – give that best man a prize.
Now married, Amy and Luke head outdoors for confetti from their family and friends on the steps of Old Marylebone Town Hall.
We stopped off along the way for some family and couple portraits.
Arriving at Gilgamesh for drinks, an Asian banquet and speeches.
One of the younger guests was very keen to get the evening’s entertainment started, stealing the drumsticks of band Zagreb – friends of Amy and Luke.
These chaps were also getting ready to party and wanted to pose for portraits in Gilgamesh’s State Room.
