Autumn wedding

Modern London Wedding in Stoke Newington and MC Motors - Emily & Jamie



2018 is drawing to a close and I’m finally having a chance to catch up on blogging what has been my favourite year yet. So many beautiful weddings, amazing couples and locations near and far. This wedding couldn’t have been closer, however, from my home in Hackney.

Emily is part of a book club and I have already photographed her friend Alice’s Smithfield’s wedding and am looking forward to their other friend Olivia’s wedding next year - it is such a pleasure to be photographing the weddings of such modern, feminist women who are taking control of their weddings and doing things in a way that reflects who they are and their ideas about modern families and relationships.


Emily and Jamie got ready together at their home surrounded by friends and family before walking together the short route to the progressive Stoken Newington Unity Church with lots of raucous singing and beautiful readings. The reception was just down the road at the very awesome MC Motors which was a dream to photograph in. The catering was by Tom Oldroyd - Londoners love their food so no limp chicken breasts here.

These photos are totally magical and just looking through them is making me smile. You really have captured all the emotion and happiness of the day in these photos. They’re so natural and gorgeous and personal and just HAPPY! Which is exactly what we wanted from the day and everything about it.

Thank you for being such a joy to have around on the day itself - you caught all the moments but you were so unobtrusive and relaxed, which really means a lot to us and set the tone for us. I think ultimately this comes through in the photos you were able to capture. Thank you for being so flexible and relaxed with the changing groups, and shot locations!

We really will truly treasure these photos forever and when we’re old and grey we’ll look at them and remember what a fun and happy day we had! Thank you again for giving that to us!
