I absolutely love London weddings and find myself heading into London more and more to photograph weddings there. One of my favourites is Islington Town Hall wedding venue. Which is becoming a popular ceremony venue for the weddings I am shooting. Camellia and Matt had their winter wedding held here.
Camellia and Matt’s Wedding Day
I started off the day with Camellia at The Fox and Anchor in Farringdon where she wore a gorgeous two piece outfit. After getting ready here with her bridesmaids and a couple of her friends, we headed outside to jump into some Ubers (after David Thewlis walked past us and I had a little inside freak out). Outside Islington Town Hall, the bride and groom met up alongside their guests. So many of their family and friends had come from all over to be with them to celebrate. In the Richmond Room, Camellia’s brother Orlando gave her away. It was an emotional ceremony, especially for Camellia, but I always love seeing emotion come out during wedding ceremonies. The more tears, the better, I think!
Outside, Camellia was reunited with her dog Coco who was an honorary bridesmaid and looked gorgeous in her bow. On a routemaster bus, guests were treated to some drinks before we stopped off at St Dunstan In The East for formal photos. Though we had to compete with some cosplayers who were having their photos taken there as it was Comic Con weekend. And whilst we were there, Camellia changed into her custom made Converse shoes which were awesome!
Back in Farringdon, the reception was then held at Ask For Janice. As it was just across the road, we headed over to Smithfield Market to do some photos there. During the reception, Camellia’s brothers said a few words, but the focus was mainly just for their loved ones to have an awesome time. Camellia and Matt didn’t want to have the traditions of formal speeches and a first dance. Just to have a party and just to have fun.

Photographing weddings like these where it’s just about having an amazing time with your family and friends are my absolute favourite. Here are some of my fav photos from Camellia and Matt’s wedding day.
