Holly & Steve’s chic & intimate Islington Town Hall wedding
Not gonna lie, I adore this family. Holly & Steve found me when I shot Holly’s Cousin Alexandra’s wedding last year at Hill Place, and I had a blast, so I was super excited to get to see them all again. These two made a few changes along the way in order to find the wedding that suited them. After a few incarnations, it became something that fitted them like Steve’s dapper suit & Holly’s stunning dress – perfectly. Without pomp & ceremony, but thoughtful, elegant, and bloody lovely – just as they are.
Holly got ready in a really lovely Air BNB with mum Val & dad Keith – her hair was teased to perfection by Katherine De Rozario (curlers always looks awesome FACT), before a last minute dress-on panic (worth it, ummm…channelling Grace Kelly or what?) & we jumped in a cab to Islington Town Hall, to find Steve a-waitin’.
After a sweet & simple ceremony, we walked through Islington while I shouted ‘oooh, let’s take a picture here!’ at various places, causing the full complement of guests to grind to a halt – (I am not sure I have ever done a couples session with quite so large of an audience…! ) – before arriving at Bellanger Resturant to be plied with a million canapés, and the most amazing vegan feast. I am still full writing this at 11pm.
So thank you for trusting me to join the team, Holly & Steve – you are truly lovely people & it was an honour. Thank you to each & every one of your family & friends who made me welcome, plied me with food, and made me feel very much like another guest (albeit one who was over enthusiastic on the camera front). Here is a peek at your day through my eyes…
