Wedding photographer Central London – cute, themed wedding with fairytale features: A Mary Poppins morning in Kensington and Notting Hill, an Agatha Cristie evening at the Distillers in Smithfield!
I’ve gotta confess something. When I read Lucy and Joe’s booking confirmation in an email, I loudly and clearly said a “YES” to my computer… I’ve not gone insane, I just really liked how they had put little personal details in to their wedding plans – I just really wanted to photograph it!
Lucy and Joe are both very in to books, and when they first met they found out that they have one thing very much in common: Agatha Christie. So when they came around to plan their “big day”, they decided to name all the tables at their reception after Agatha Christie books! Not only that, the reception venue itself – The Distillers, situated opposite the Smithfields Market in city of London, looks like it could have fallen right out from an old English mystery movie! It has that old fashion pub with a streak of elegance to it. And it is situated only a few minutes walk from Poirot’s head quarters (!)
To top it of, before heading for the ceremony at St Peters Church in the morning, Lucy got ready in the cutest little fairy tale house. Her grandmother’s “Mary Poppins house”… and it was truly Mary Poppinsi, with lovely Victorian features and pastel colours – I really struggled to find any images that I wanted to make into black and white actually!
I kind of fell in love with their wedding day – everything about it was just so cute, I loved all the locations, the personal details, the colours and all the emotions shining through. I’m gonna try not to upload millions and millions of pictures…
St Peters church in Notting Hill is quite special. Notting Hill with its town houses always reminds me a bit of an American town – like the older towns in the Old South. St Peters church is squeezed in amongst all these sand-coloured buildings, breaking it all up a bit with it’s sunset orange facade. The interior of the church is like a huge “airy” square, featuring all these beautiful pillars. St Peters is apparently one of the most modern churches in London (later 1800s) – which explains its slightly unusual architecture.
It’s Miss Marple!
Congratulations Lucy and Joe!
