A beautiful, vintage and quirky wedding filled love and laughter.
Smithfields Market winter wedding
A London wedding
London wedding ? YES PLEASE!
Being from the leafy ‘burbs of Hampshire sometimes a London wedding is just what you need after all those trees and rolling hills!!
So when Holly (epic name obvs) and Jeremy asked me to shoot their London wedding up in that fancy London Village a few days before Christmas I was in. They kept it small, as they are both from Australia. There were 8 guests. Holly and Jeremy, their son and nephew, their parents and Holly’s sisters and me ! It was amazing to be so much part of it all.
Holly wore an amazing flower crown, perfect for a winter wedding, a beautiful lace dress and wicked gold shoes. Jeremy looked sharp in his suit and bow tie, with button hole to match Holly’s crown.
After getting ready together, along with all their guests, at the near by Hilton, the boys took a cab with the kids to Islington Town Hall, and us girls hopped on a bus.
They had a beautiful, slightly ‘snowy’ ceremony at Islington. Two year old boys tend to get a bit bored at weddings. Especially during all the wordy bits. These little legends unwrapped all the fake presents under the Christmas tree (which were polystyrene blocks) and basically created their own snow storm! I think a quick spot of hoovering was required before the next wedding !!
After some excellent confetti canons on the steps (which weirdly the boys weren’t too keen on) we headed over the road to get them ice-cream at Udderlicious. Then onto Hoxley & Porter to get the grown ups some champagne. This gorgeous bar is a real gem and makes you feel like you’ve stepped into the 1920’s.
Champagne (and ice-cream) flowed and then we all jumped into black cabs and headed over the Smithfield Market for some wicked photos, and stunning back drops, fist bumping of market workers, and to St Johns Square Gardens, where I had to kick one dead pigeon out of shot !! This is why I love London weddings. Dead pigeons aside
The meal was then in the stunning and super quirky Zetter Townhouse. The food and the staff and the surroundings were amazing. It felt like being on a film set.
It was a wonderful final wedding of 2016, and so lovely to have been such a big part of their day. More London weddings please and thank you!!
