This is the Islington Town Hall wedding of Holly and Martin. As an Islington wedding photographer I was delighted when Holly and Martin contacted me to photograph their wedding. When they decided to get married they wanted to do something that would show off London to their guests. As Holly is Australian and had lots of guests coming from “down under” they decided to have their wedding ceremony at Islington Town Hall. They were very lucky with the weather that day as we all know how unpredictable the good old British weather can be, but the Sun shone on them all day. They booked The Rose Pub in Vauxhall for their reception as it is on the banks of the Thames giving wonderful views of the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye and many other famous London icons.
To continue the London theme they hired a Red Routemaster Bus to take them and their guests from Islington Town Hall right through the centre of London on a mini sightseeing tour. This proved to be a real hit with their guests and a great way to travel to the wedding reception. I travelled on the bus with them and as someone who likes natural wedding photographs I moved around the bus, taking photographs of their guests throughout the journey and also of the sights along the way, I wanted to create for them a pictorial story of their wedding day.
One of the great things about Islington Town hall and having your wedding there is that the Council Chamber is magnificent and a very grand setting for your wedding ceremony. It is also very easy for guests to get to the Town Hall as Islington is well serviced by tubes and trains. If you are having a smaller and more intimate wedding then Room 99 may be the perfect choice for you.
I was very pleased to see their wedding was subsequently featured in Your London Wedding magazine, and Holly and Martin were really delighted with this.
