This Wedding London Pub Story is about a Vintage and Quirky Style wedding in East London. The ceremony was in Bow, at the Tower Hamlets Register Office, and the reception at the Print House Bar and Kitchen Pub, along Three Mills Wall River.
So, let’s begin!
The getting ready
The flower pot.
The bride got ready in a flat in East London. It was at level zero, with a view from the windows of the typical East London. This was a lovely flower pot just by one of those windows.
Playing with the balloons.
Finally, let’s meet the bride! Here just checking for the final touch before leaving. The bride wearing a Vintage Birdcage Wedding Veil

Then, the mother of the bride helped her wearing the wedding dress. You can also see properly the vintage birdcage wedding veil.
Closing the wedding dress.
For the most part of this getting ready I have been focused on the bride and her friends, above all the little ones, but never forget to photograph the bouquet. It was not very big, but really nice and perfectly matching the colour palette of the entire wedding. Do you remember the balloons, don’t you?
Here we are, on the streets waiting for the cab.

Last but not least, the Print House Bar and Kitchen Pub, where the bride and the groom decided to have the reception.
As a wedding photographer, I had the chance to take the photographs of this 1950’s Vintage inspired wedding in London.
Vintage Wedding Story
Vintage-inspired weddings are very popular nowadays, from the 1920s to 1960s you can appreciate a wide range of styles, dresses and wedding decors.
Besides the vintage theme, this wedding is really special for many other reasons.
First, the couple wanted a true vintage style wedding favours, therefore they started to collect vintage teacups in local vintage shops almost a year before the wedding. You will see in the photos, they are simply amazing!
Second, they chose a really cool wedding venue. It wasn’t a traditional wedding venue. They hired the Loft photo studio in London, with wooden tables and chairs, and that’s it, they got the magic!
Third, food. Instead of a traditional wedding catering, they hired a fish and chips mobile van, to be sure that “everyone was happy”, and, once again, they nailed it!
Fourth, the cakes! In a vintage wedding style, where everything was “real vintage”, there weren’t other options than delicious and beautiful handmade cakes! Some of the closest relatives of the bride and the groom backed the wedding cakes and cupcakes. I hope photos will give justice to that outstanding selection of cakes!
Last but not least, both the bride and the groom are dance teachers. They organised a flash mob right after the first dance with outstanding choreography.
Given these points, let’s begin.

Wedding photographer London – Part 2 – The ceremony at the Orangery in Holland Park
The wedding ceremony was at the Orangery, in Holland Park. It has been a great choise as the weather was fantastic, giving a fabolous light for the wedding photos.
The Bride and the Groom right before the “I do”, a bit emotional for both of them, and most of the wedding guests.
And finally, “I now pronounce you husband and wife”!
