London wedding photography – Snowy London wedding at Finsbury Town Hall

January 16, 2019

Old Finsbury Town Hall wedding London with a very snowy ending!

Corrina & Andrew’s wedding was the weekend the Beast from the East struck. The temperature dipped, the snow fell, and they had a snowy London wedding. But nothing stopped these two from having an awesome time!

When Corrina and Andrew first got in touch with me about their London wedding, I was very happy. They were planning a stylish city wedding with a religious ceremony, and a reception at the hidden gem that is The Old Finsbury Town Hall. Corrina and Andrew are very easy going and the nicest people and I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding!

When they had planned their wedding for March they’d no doubt had thoughts of daffodils, early spring days and maybe a little sunshine. A snowy London wedding was the last thing that was expected, but that is what was had.

Getting ready

I began the morning at a rented apartment, where the bride and her friends were getting ready. It was very relaxed with hair and makeup being done, a few drinks being enjoyed and music playing. Corrina looked so incredible and braved the freezing temperatures with a sleeveless dress. By the time I arrived the weather was cold. The snow was starting to fall and it became clear that Corrina & Andrew were going to have a snowy London wedding…in March!

The ceremony

The wedding took place at Church of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus in Holloway and was a traditional church ceremony. They had some beautiful readings and lots of smiles and laughter during the ceremony. Corrina & Andrew had arranged for a red London bus to transport everyone from the church to the reception. We managed a few quick family photos outside the church before dashing to the bus to warm up.

The reception

The wedding reception took place at Finsbury Town Hall. In itself, this is the most amazing space. The main room, that was used for the wedding breakfast and the evening celebrations is the most stunning space. Ornate and elegant to begin with, Corrina & Andrew chose very simple decorations for the tables. Spring blossoms and accents of gold, which reflected the room and the season. Their cake was made by the bride’s cousin, a very talented lady. It was incredible.

It was a very cold day, which wasn’t in the plan but the couple didn’t mind. While the guests stayed warm inside, we wandered around the corner for some photos in Exmouth Market. This is a fave spot for Corrina & Andrew so was a perfect place for a few photos.

During the reception, they had a homemade bar, which served wine they had chosen and beer from a local brewery. Music was a big part of the day. They had a harpist and a guitarist during the drinks reception. They then had a band and a DJ for the evening.

The food for the day was by a company called The Sustainable Food Story. Finding a caterer that could serve amazing vegetarian food was a big thing for the couple. The food was delicious. After dinner there were a few speeches, then the band kicked off the party and Corrina & Andrew had their first dance and then everyone hit the dancefloor.

My favourite photo from day is the last shot before I left. It had been snowing on and off all day but as I popped outside to do a last venue photo the snow was falling really heavily. I dashed back inside to get Corrina & Andrew and we ended the wedding photos on the most amazing snowy image. A perfect final shot for a fabulous and stylish snowy London wedding.
