Old marylebone town hall | aimee & glenn
The Old Marylebone Town Hall has to be the most rock n roll place to get married in London & it’s probably my favourite wedding venue, too. Previous notable nuptials there include Chrissie Hynde, David, Gilmour, Liam Gallagher (twice), Paul McCartney, Rupert (ahem) Murdoch & Jerry Hall and, … oh yes, of course it’s where I got hitched to my wife Niki! 😊
So it was within these auspicious surroundings in September that Aimee & Glenn were set to be wed, and it was a perfect cosmopolitan, city wedding with Glenn’s family flying in en masse from Australia! The couple were fortunate to have the whole place pretty much to themselves for the duration of the pre, during and post ceremony, which was fortunate as it can get busy there at times!
The day started for me at the Old Town Hall. I was first to arrive, so I captured some incidental photos and then the guests and bridal party as they arrived. Later inside, I was keen to capture some of the more natural intimate moments as the family and the wedding couple were putting the finishing touches to their buttonholes and bouquets!
The guests assembled in The Westminster Room and as Glenn waited with his best man, the nerves had no time to set in as Aimee was in within moments and the ceremony proceeded without a hitch.
After the ceremony we captured some portraits on the steps as the newly-weds emerged, followed by a red bus tour of London before heading to the reception at The Artisan (now closed unfortunately) in Farringdon.
They also decided to book my pop-up photobooth to take place during the reception. Perfect for the guests to let their hair down!
