I first met Stephen & Antonio at their wedding venue ‘ The Dickesn Inn’ at Tower Bridge for an engagement photo shoot. It was a pleasure to meet them and we had a good chat abouth their plans, we got on well and had a short engagement photo session which went well.
They both have a real relaxed demeanour and were really keen to have the wedding their own way, so we discussed the photography & agreed that my documentary style would work well in the main. They also opted to go for some portrait photos alongside the iconic local scenery, as well as a few formal photos of their wedding party. They also decided to book my photobooth service to take place during the reception. A perfect plan!
Absolutely wonderful experience. Of all the people we worked with for the wedding, the most pleasant experience by far was working with Michael on the photography. He was friendly, communicative and had a real passion for what he did. I look forward to using him for my next wedding 😉 Pro tip: Take Michael’s photo booth offer as well as the standard package. It was great fun and resulted in some great pictures. – Stephen, Sept 2019
The day started at finished at The Dickens Inn, St Katherine’s Dock which is such a photogenic venue, steeped in London’s shipping history.
It has iconic features inside and out with oak beams & flowers hanging outside. The pair arrived separately, greeted by their pals, and immediately moved to say their I do’s in the ‘Dickens Suite’ upstairs. I love the way they both looked so super cool, and it was clear they were v much loved by their friends and family. It was a really touching celebration.
Following the ceremony we explored Tower Bridge & St Katherine’s Dock for some portrait & group photos, then returned for the reception. Emotions were supercharged with some hilarious and heartfelt speeches delivered by Stephen & Antonio’s nearest and dearest from UK and Spain. This was followed by their first dance and a full night of tearing it up on the dancefloor with their friends and family.
Finally for the pop up studio/photobooth there were some ‘alternative’ photos with props. I want to give a special mention to the guests for putting 200% into this part..!
To sum up. It was a really warm and emotional day for a fab couple, and I met some great people so stayed on for a while even after finishing a full-on day.
Here are some of my favourites from the day?
