A lovely wedding from last Autumn under the Covid rules at the time, Antoinette & Michael’s intimate wedding in London at Islington Town Hall, followed by a reception at Frederick’s – a funky modern restaurant on Camden Passage. Antoinette and Michael wanted coverage starting at Islington Town Hall, followed by some portraits and then coverage at Frederick’s.
I started the day bright and early at Islington Town Hall, documenting guest arrivals and then waiting to photograph Antoinette and Michael’s arrival in their white London Cab. Once the bride and groom had greeted their guests, they were interviewed by the (excellent as always) Registrars, before it was time to start the ceremony. Although slightly strange with everyone dotted around to ensure social distancing, the guys had a great relaxed, fun-filled ceremony.
Afterwards, I took the bride and groom for two minutes for some portraits whilst everyone made their way outside. Confetti on the steps and a few quick group shots done, the bride and groom were congratulated by their guests and greeted a special doggy well-wisher – so cute!!
While the guests made their way over to Frederick’s, I jumped into the taxi with the bride and groom so we could stop off along the way for a few quick portraits, before they made their entrance to the incredibly funky restaurant, where the guests were all waiting for their arrival!
Whilst the bride and groom chatted with their guests, I documented the day for them until it was time for a few quick speeches, and then it was time for me to hop on the train back to Tunbridge Wells and leave the wedding party enjoying their spectacular looking food – the sandwich at Charing Cross left me feeling a bit jealous!
Congratulations to Antoinette and Michael!
