Wiltons Music Hall Wedding Photographer
Annemarie and Tommy wanted a party, a proper east end knees up. A day filled with their personalities, their humour and all their favourite people. They wanted to laugh and smile and dance the day away and the one thing they wanted more than anything was to have their favourite band sign their first dance. When I first spoke to Annemarie, she talked in a hushed voice about a very special band they were having at the wedding. Nothing had been confirmed but they were hoping to have the mighty Chas from Chas & Dave play at the wedding. This wasn’t a novelty, it was all about Annemarie & Tommy. They have seen Chas & Dave play numerous times and when they got engaged they decided straight away that there first dance was to be one of their songs and after meeting them it made perfect sense. The band are an integral part of their relationship which is what makes it so amazing but also, these two do not take life seriously, they make each other laugh constantly and are just full of smiles. I walked away from an evening in the pub with them, smiling for ear to ear and with a sore belly from laughing so much.
When it came to the wedding, all of that laughter and fun spilled into their day. They laughed, cried and got so excited about meeting Chas that I thought they would burst and thats is exactly what a wedding day should be.
Wiltons Music Hall
Wiltons Music Hall is an incredible venue…so much character and the staff there are so lovely. They really know how to look after a couple and ensure they have the best possible day. As it is a working theatre, the stage is the perfect spot for a ceremony. There is plenty of room on the stage to allow you to breathe while the ceremony unfolds and the height of stage allows all the wedding guests to see, so there is no cranning of necks to catch that first kiss.
v During their drinks reception Tommy’s dad found a little corner of Wiltons Music Hall and started playing some music. Dad was playing guitar and singing and Tommy’s sister (after a little encouragement) got up and sang. Tommy looked so proud of his sister and I turned round to see him and Annemarie, snuggled up together singing along, completely lost in the happiness of the day.
