Pouya and Nadia are just perfect for one another and I was thrilled to have been able to document their wedding day. With the groomsmen all suited and booted and their tasks finally completed a swift drink in the pub opposite Islington Town Hall was definitely in order. A small intimate ceremony with friends and family some of whom had travelled in from Sweden was held in the wonderful main room at the town hall.. Nadia & Pouya had written their own vows and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place. A short journey down the road and we arrived at the reception in the heart of London’s Square Mile. The Clerkenwell and Social was an amazing venue with plenty of space to be able to dance and believe me this is something that these two definitely had planned. A funny speech about the bride sneaking out to go for a drink by borrowing her neighbours ladders was a personal highlight…
Simon and Ollie celebrated their Civil Partnership in the beautiful hills of Richmond in Surrey. The venue was the idyllic Petersham hotel which is just a stones throw from where Turner had famously painted many years ago, and naturally provided stunning views of the River Thames which was quite simply a dream to capture!
A small intimate ceremony with very close friends and family was held in the 'River Room’ followed by some drinks upon the roof terrace-made all the more glorious with the September sunshine beating down from above. A delicious wedding breakfast followed by a couple of informal yet heartfelt speeches was all that was needed to get the party started, before guests took a short walk down to the riverbank to board a boat to continue the celebrations on a private river cruise.
As the sun was setting guests enjoyed breathtaking views of Londons’ riverbank and enjoyed taking in the sights of iconic London landmarks including the Shard and the London Eye, and as darkness commenced so did some serious dancing!
Here are a few of my favourites from the day…
A quintessential English summer wedding in the beautiful Cotswold village of Lower Slaughter was the perfect setting for Brian and Louise’s wedding day which was held in a stunning Cotswold stone Manor House.
After a drive through the local country lanes in a racing green vintage Morgan car, the groom and his best man were ready and nervously waited for the nuptials to begin.
With their family and friends gathered to witness this intimate ceremony there were a few giggles along the way as Brian fluffed a word or two in excitement, but eventually the words ‘I do’ were said and celebrations could begin!
Confetti, canapés and champagne followed quickly and guests mingled on the perfectly landscaped gardens in front of The Manor House, with the day made more perfect thanks to the British summer weather holding up well!
All that was left was to do was cut the cake and dance the night away...
The Slaughters Manor House was the perfect venue for such a lovely couple to celebrate their love for one another-below are just some of my favourite captures from the day.
