The Londesborough is the perfect spot for a wedding. Just a short walk from Stoke Newington Town Hall, it was the perfect location for Becky and Tony’s wedding and leaving party.
I headed to their flat first to get a few shots of the girls getting ready. Mum was in the bed room ironing Becky’s dress while the girls were in front room finishing off their make up. I love it when brides get ready at home. There is something quite special about being in the familiar space, surround by your everyday things, getting the dress out of your own wardrobe, and drinking champagne out of your favourite mug.
We hopped in a cab to Stoke Newington Town Hall where everyone was eagerly awaiting Becky’s arrival. Her dad met her outside and had the biggest smile on his fave when he saw his daughter. It’s moments like that that make me feel very privileged to do what I do. It was a moment that no one else witnessed, but a moment that I got to capture for them both to relive.
As always, the ceremony was full of emotion and laughter and as they walked to the pub, Becky and Tony slowed down to walk with their grandparents. Arm in arm, they slowly walked to The Londesborough where they carried on their celebrations. Every now again Becky would wander over to the quiet corner of the pub and check in on her grandparents. It was amazing to watch them chat, and see her nan get excited about Becky’s ring and get up on the dance floor later in the evening.
I always make sure I get photos of grandparents at weddings. I have very few photos of myself with my grandparents and I the ones I do have I really do cherish.
