An East London Warehouse Wedding, Grace & Thorn wedding flowers and coffee & donuts for dessert…I was one happy photographer.
So I first met Tessa & Harry at Chris & Claire’s wedding last year. Then, while I was shooting the guests arriving at a wedding in the Oxford country side, who walks in, but Tessa & Harry. A few weeks later, I got the loveliest email from Tessa, asking if I was free for their wedding and if I was interested in photographing their wedding day. I jumped at the chance to photograph their wedding as these two are just really lovely people. When they told me about their plans, I knew it would be a fun, relaxed day.
They started out at Hackney Town Hall and picked an amazing east London warehouse to hold their reception. When I walked into the warehouse space, I was confronted with a wall of silver balloons which allowed them to separate out the space between the drinks and the dinner. It also allowed for a big reveal when dinner was ready, which was such a great idea. Their dinner tables were full of beautiful succulents and personalised pencils, which was such a great touch and came in very handy when the speeches started and some of their friends decided a game of speech bingo was in order. The speech bingo turned rowdy, people started drawing rude pictures on the tables and then they began to attack the helium balloons. So much laughter followed and it was amazing to watch everyone let their hair down and start dancing. Fuelled by some very strong rum cocktails, everyone piled on to the dance floor. The music was amazing and I may have busted out a few dance moves as I photographed everyone dancing the night away.
I just have to say a massive thanks to Tessa & Harry for inviting me to be a part of the their wedding.
