I am crazy in love with Tim and Steph’s wedding. Hosted over two days (due to the registrar being unavailable for the date of the reception), their marriage became an epic of two distinct Acts. Their creativity and coolness inspired me to push the artistry in my photography and it really was an absolute privilege.
Day 1, I photographed with Sally-Anne (check her out her work she’s awesome, Sally-Anne Photography, www.photographybysallyanne.com) in Stoke Newington, NW London, where a humanistic ceremony took place in the art deco Stoke Newington Town Hall. Personal vows were exchanged and readings from friends and family were shared. Followed by the reception in The Old Church – a medieval church shaded by ancient trees, this spectacularly unique venue was transformed into a cool, beautifully hand-crafted reception. Guests assisted with carving the meat for a lush (the venue kindly fed Sally-anne & I too) medieval style feast and a table of cakes made by family and friends provided the sweet puddings! The couple opted against a traditional style cutting of the cake, and instead they sealed a crate of wines, one to be opened at significant anniversaries of their marriage – totally awesome!
Day 2, I met Steph & Tim at Dalton Junction, close to where they used to live together and we took some amazing urban shots around the underground. I managed to get a quick capture of them in front of the train that was to take us to Islington, where their marriage was formalised in Islington Town Hall surrounded by immediate family.
Two days, two parts of London, two distinct themes – Two fantastic people truly, madly deeply in Love.
