East London Wedding // Shawn & Rachael

Weddings

Shawn and Rachael’s East London wedding was a non-stop whirlwind of events, and we’re not quite sure how it all got squeezed into 8 hours! We first met Shawn and Rachael at a wedding fair last September where they happened to be walking past and came to take a look (i.e bag a glass of free champagne). They were a super friendly couple, and so excited to be planning their wedding day together, we hit it off and they booked an engagement session to boot!  Shawn and Rachael met working at a summer kids camp a few years ago ‘where Rachel fell for my awesome guitar playing skills and Aussie accent’ said Shawn.

We really felt like we journeyed with Shawn and Rachel, from their engagement session with us, to their first dance – it was an amazing ride to have been a part of and we felt honoured to capture it. We always encourage getting to know our couples as much as possible before their big day as it really helps them warm up in front of the camera and we end up feeling more like friends rather than just a couple of crazy paps!

Shawn and Rachel decided on an East London Wedding, where their local church is based – Christ Church Spitalfields. It’s an iconic building just opposite the famous Spitalfields market with an amazing naturally lit interior that made our hearts swell (photographers will get what we mean). After all the tears of joy and hurricane of confetti, they held a quick mini reception inside the church before we hijacked them for their couple portraits around the city. What we loved about these guys was that they were up for anything, basically walking across Millennium Bridge in their wedding getup didn’t phase them – but London is that kind of a place,  you can do anything and it’s just kind of normal. Their main reception was at The Stationer’s Hall, one of the City’s original Livery Halls. It was a gorgeous traditional venue with a feeling of grandeur to it, and the secret garden at the back was incredible, apparently it has the oldest tree in London planted in it – how’s that for a fun fact. These guys ate, laughed, cried and danced the rest of the night away, so take a look and enjoy this East London wedding ride!

A Most Curious Wedding Fair London 2017
We were seriously overexcited when Becky and Cat (co-founders of A Most Curious Wedding Fair) got in touch to ask us to photograph the London show this year. For those of you who don't know, A Most Curious Wedding Fair is for all the cool brides and grooms out there, who want to bring a creative, stylish and alternative edge to their day. Held at the Old Truman Brewery in the hipster haven that is Brick Lane (not far from our own doorstep) you'll find no polished glamour here, it's free spirited rock 'n' roll all the way, and we loved it. A Most Curious Wedding Fair is the biggest and most forward-thinking of its kind in London. Becky and Ca ...

Castle Wedding // Rachel & Jamie
Rachel and Jamie's castle wedding in Italy was an unforgettable experience. Not only were we excited about shooting in dreamy Italy, we couldn't believe our eyes when Rachel and Jamie emailed to say they were getting married in the beautiful castle of Bardi, (being a Destination Wedding Photographer has its perks!). Nestled firmly on a rock outcrop, facing a swath of rolling hills, mountains and valleys, you can hardly tell where the 8th Century castle begins and ends, as it blends in so harmoniously with the landscape. We had to stop the car at least ten times on our approach as it came looming into view. A castle wedding has to be one of o ...

Dalston Heights Wedding
In an age where it has become acceptable to hold your wedding reception in a warehouse and drink cocktails out of jam jars, we thought it was time to do a round up of London's hippest wedding venues (and no, they're not all East). So, if you've just got engaged and have a penchant for retro style with an edge, then you can cross a major task off your wedding to do list. Kicking off with Dalston Heights, this gem of a venue sits on the top floor of a former cardboard box factory in Hackney E8. It doesn't really get more hipster than this. Step inside and you are met with a huge 7,200 square footage of Attic space filled with vintage furniture ...
