51 Buckingham Gate | London wedding | Vanessa + Richard

On a day when it seems most eyes of the nation are on another couple getting married, I wanted to blog the rest of Vanessa and Richard’s photographs – their ceremony at Westminster Register Office and wedding reception at 51 Buckingham Gate, SW1.
Vanessa looked stunning when she arrived with her father, late because of traffic.

Vanessa’s Italian parents and friends were so sweet and emotional throughout the ceremony, as well as Vanessa.

After some well-aimed confetti and rice, Vanessa and their guests hopped on a red Routemaster bus for a tour of London including Regent Street, bedecked in union jacks in readiness for today’s royal wedding.

Annapriya + Innes wedding party | A single

Annapriya and Innes marked their Friday wedding with a party last night at Hackney’s Spurstowe Arms and the mood kicked into high celebration gear, very much thanks to this guy.  I’ll be putting more from the night up in about 10 days and if you were at Annapriya and Innes’ wedding or party, you can register to see the photographs after Annapriya and Innes have seen them by going here.
