I absolutely loved Sarah and Chris, they were so relaxed from start to finish on their wedding day in London. They were a joy to photograph. They were married at two of my favourite places in London the Asylum chapel in Peckham followed by their wedding party at the urban Trinity Buoy Wharf in the East End docklands. The lovely Natalie Agnes Black assisted me on the day and was as excited as me that we had so much time to photograph Sarah and Chris and get round all the creative places. It was a perfect Monday afternoon wedding. Thank you so much for having us both.
How did Chris propose!
“Chris proposed whilst we were on holiday in Lucca, Italy. We had dinner one evening and then took a stroll along the medieval city walls when he found a lovely spot with a view and got down on one knee. I never suspected a thing, it caught me completely by surprise and all I could do for a few seconds was stare at him open mouthed!
What was the best part of the day for you.
The best part of the day was obviously walking down the aisle! I really enjoyed the service and exchanging vows. That was the exciting part for me, when we actually became husband and wife.
What made you choose the venue’s
We chose Asylum for its history and atmosphere. It’s a unique venue and as soon as we saw it we knew it was the right place for us. It’s a beautiful building both inside and out, and we wanted to have a chance to share it with our guests.
We chose Trinity Buoy Wharf because we have generations of family who have lived in London, so we wanted to be somewhere meaningful. Some of the family have close links to the Docklands, and we loved the fact that it also had London’s only lighthouse.
Where did you get the inspiration for the table’s.
TBW is very urban and there is no wildlife in sight. That’s why we chose the table designs and plants, to try and bring some nature to the location and soften the atmosphere. The day before the wedding I went with a bridesmaid to a local meadow and we picked the flowers and plants that we used on the day. Our good friend Elin arranged them all as well as creating all the beautiful name cards, table numbers and seating plan The basil plants were part of the Italian theme to add to the aroma and allow guests to flavour their own dinner”.
