Modern London Wedding at St Barts and St Johns Restaurant - Alice & Jack

Modern London Wedding at St Barts and St Johns Restaurant - Alice & Jack

This was a wedding I've been looking forward to for a while - ever since meeting the utterly charming Alice in Stoke Newington last year.  Not only is she the most natural beauty but she is relaxed, creative and had chosen the most wonderful venues for her wedding.  First up getting ready at The Zetter in Clerkenwell, as photogenic as a hotel can get, and then the short stroll through Smithfields to the oldest church in London, St Bartholemews.  A cavernous space founded in 1123 as an Augustinian monastery.  Having photographed there before I knew that the light and colours are like a painting.   Unusually I attended the rehearsal a few days before to meet the characterful Father Peter who provided the most entertaining and authentic service I've been to in a while.  He made the wedding about Jack and Alice entirely.  It felt incredibly personal and accessible.  Fortunately for October we had a lovely warm day and so walked straight from the church and on to St Johns.  I've never eaten there before so it was a real treat to be seated with the guests and have a chance to enjoy some of Fergus Henderson's renowned food.

London Wedding Photographer - Jason and Eugenie's Islington Town Hall Wedding

It always feels like a huge privilege to be present and to photograph such an intimate wedding as this.  Just very close family and friends of the couple gathered in the drizzle at Islington Town Hall.  Fortunately Jason and Eugenie were happy to meet up before the ceremony so that we had a chance to wander the streets around the town hall and capture some portraits of the two of them - well technically 3 given that Eugenie was 7 months pregnant :-)

London Wedding Photographer - Kate and Matt's Hampstead Wedding at the Pergola Hill and Garden and Lauderdale House

I had two almost simultaneous enquiries for this same date in July and had to make a decision but Kate made a very convincing argument as to how much fun and how beautiful a wedding at the Pergola Hill and Garden would be.  Having photographed a styled shoot there before I knew what a fantastic setting it was and so it was decided.

Bar Italia Wedding Photography  ||  London Wedding Photographer for Elyse & Sebastian
A small and intimate ceremony and celebration with Canadian Elyse and Polish Sebastian who met and fell in love in London and were engaged in Mexico.  They told me they were non-traditional from the start.  He was there to pick out the dress and they started the day with close family and friends at their favourite coffee haunt, Bar Italia, in Soho before the ceremony.   They told me 'we truly are best friends', and I think this comes out in the pictures.
