Brace yourself for a gorgeous wedding at the amazing Devonshire Terrace in London!

The first thing you should probably know is that Gemma is a wedding photographer. I knew I was going to love Gemma and Gary instantly, not only did Gemma and I bond immediately over wedding photography (and how often we have to crop out Fire Exit signs…!), but, they brought their adorable dog along to the pub to meet me! With her expert wedding knowledge, Gemma included a plethora of wonderful details in the day. This included some beautiful acoustic music from Articulate Music wandering around the reception; and singing waiters serenading the guests at the end of the meal. Oh and a surprise choreographed bridal party first dance to Uptown Funk and bubbles instead of confetti. Gemma left a little surprise for Gary in the pub before their ceremony – a cardboard cut out of Stone Cold Steve Austin, with a little note around his neck informing Gary of a surprise inscription on the inside of his wedding ring.

This wedding was in one of the most amazing venues I’ve had the joy of working at – Devonshire Terrace in London. It is just stunning, you can see the Gherkin perfectly framed through the glass roof and this just gets even more special as the sun goes down. Then to top it all, Gemma and Gary covered the place in gorgeous decorations, including paper lanterns and lights from Stress Free Hire and beautiful flowers from Spinney Cottage Flowers.

Hannah and her bridesmaids got ready at Town Hall Hotel in East London, it is a gorgeous hotel. I had so much fun watching everyone get ready, complete with lots of M&S treats and some of the most diligent aisle-walking practice I’ve ever witnessed.

Islington is one of my favourite places in London and this was the first time I’ve had the chance to work at Islington Town Hall, it’s just beautiful, as was Hannah and Dave’s ceremony. There were many tears and mid-way through, a surprise sing along involving all the guests. Pretty perfect!

Hannah and Dave’s reception was at The Albion in Islington and it had a lovely summer evening feel, the meal was set up outside and speeches were held under a tree lined with twinkling lights as the sun went down. I don’t really need to say much more as the photos speak for themselves.

I had such an amazing day getting to know everyone at this wedding and I wish Hannah and Dave all the best for their future together. I’m also covering Freya’s (the maid of honour) wedding next year and I’m very much looking forward to seeing lots of familiar, happy faces again when summer rolls around.

What can I say about this wedding? May and her bridesmaids got ready at Hotel Du Vin in Tunbridge Wells (her room had the most gorgeous bathtub!). May and Luke were married at Tunbridge Wells Registry Office, the ceremony itself was a very small affair and then the couple greeted their guests at Falconhurst in Kent. Falconhurst is incredibly beautiful and has so much to offer, a formal rose garden, rambling ruins, wild flowers, a herb garden. Just perfect! And their marquee was just stunning. I loved the simplicity and clean colour scheme, it was very much white and cream, with some lovely sparkle from the bridesmaids.

Luke and May met in Geography class back when they were teenagers. Their tables were named after Arctic Monkeys songs because Luke proposed at an Arctic Monkeys gig. May walked down the aisle to Mardy Bum. And subsequently, her sister made a tear-jerking speech, complete with a rendition of Mardy Bum, re-worked with personalised lyrics. It was incredible!

I had so much fun at this wedding, so much laughter, great music, drinks flowing and May and Luke’s guests were amazing.
