Wedding London Pub | Vintage Quirky Wedding

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.

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?

London Wedding Photographer | Intimate wedding story at Kensington and Chelsea Register Office

As a London wedding and documentary photographer, I had the chance to take the photo of a really small and intimate Wedding in London, at the Kensington and Chelsea Register Office.

As a matter of fact, with just six guests, It has been the smallest wedding I have ever shot

Let this wedding story begin 

Getting ready

As can be seen, as a small intimate wedding, the getting ready was easy and simple, with the preparation in the same flat for the bride and the groom, without any bridesmaids.

Wedding flowers

The wedding flowers were easy and simple too, and yet really nice.

Matching the same colour palette, the wedding bouquet was a mix of roses, and again, simple but beautiful.

It’s time to meet the groom as well, wearing one of the wedding flowers.

Wedding photographer London | Vintage Wedding story | 1950s

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.
