An intimate London wedding at Marylebone Town Hall
When Madeleine and Sam first got in touch with me about their intimate London wedding, I was so happy – they were planning a stylish city wedding with an intimate ceremony and very special meal for their reception. We chatted for ages about what they wanted for their wedding photography. It was great to get a feel for them as a couple and the things they liked. Madeleine was a little nervous about having her photo taken and they were both really keen to get relaxed and natural images. Finding out what’s important, as well as any worries, is all part of the process when it comes to your wedding photography.
As with many weddings in 2020 their wedding had restrictions in place. It was going to be an intimate London wedding with just a small number of friends and family. This wasn’t a problem though as we made a plan for photos during and after the ceremony.
Madeleine and Sam are the loveliest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!
The intimate wedding
The wedding took place at Marylebone Town Hall, and was a small town hall ceremony. They had a simple ceremony with their closest family and friends, which was very special. After the ceremony there were cheers of celebration, and then as the guests made their way outside I took a few photos of Madeleine & Sam inside the building before making our way to the exit to be greeted by cheers and confetti!
We made the most of the fabulous steps and beautiful building as a backdrop to do some group photos outside. It was an overcast day with a spot of sunshine here and there, which was perfect for photos.
After the ceremony
The wedding reception took place Bob Bob Ricard, which is one of Madeleine and Sam’s favourite restaurants. They had booked a private room at the back as a treat for themselves and their guests.
While the guests made their way to the restaurant, we took a wander through the streets close by and towards Regents Park. Its a beautiful area and perfect for photos. I had worked out a little route and we walked, chatted and took photos for about half an hour. When the photos were finished we hailed a black cab and I travelled with Madeleine and Sam to the restaurant.
They were welcomed with more cheers and toasts with both Champagne and iced vodka. It didn’t take too much persuasion to join them in the toasts, which was a very lovely way to end this stylish intimate London wedding!
This was such a fabulous intimate London wedding to be a part of. It was one of the first ones I photographed after the changes were made to wedding numbers due to the restrictions. The one thing that has struck me with all the small and intimate weddings I have photographed is the love and joy at each wedding. While they may be small, they are definitely special. They are no less amazing for being mini.
