Small is beautiful – so they say!! I recently photographed a wedding at Old Marylebone Town Hall, followed by the reception at St Stephen’s Club in central London. What a lovely, small and intimate wedding Lorna & Phil’s was. It was nice to be back at the Old Marylebone Town Hall again where coverage started with a short ceremony in the blue marriage room. After the short but tearful ceremony, everyone got on a Routemaster for a whistle-stop tour through Westminster to St Ermin’s Hotel for some formal group photos – the hotel was a held special memories for Lorna & Phil, hence the stop-off. Then back on the Routemaster where the bus went on to their final stop-off, St Stephen’s for a fabulous champagne reception, followed by the wedding breakfast. It became a bit of a trip around town as we even made time for a short photo-stop-over on the embankment en-route.
The Bride, Lorna wore a beautiful fish-tail dress with impossibly high Jimmy Choo’s, the Groom, Phil in a beautifully tailored suit, were beaming all day. Guests were decked in lots of lovely bright colours and there were even a few kilts!! With smaller weddings it can be harder to stay in the background, but the guests were so friendly and welcoming that we got to know them pretty well after 8-9-hours. Unbelievably, we had a standing ovation when we left! Now that’s never happened before. I really love small weddings and this one had a wonderfully intimate atmosphere, coupled with relaxed London chic!
Love London weddings – and looking forward to lots more this year. If you’re getting married at Old Marylebone Town Hall and are looking for relaxed, natural coverage – get in touch! Hope you enjoy Part 1 of this post – more images to follow in a later post. Congratulations again to Lorna & Phil xx
