Stoke Newington Town Hall Wedding photographer | Kaye + Jon

Upstairs in The Roost East London

Kaye and Jon got married at Stoke Newington Town Hall in north London, they followed the ceremony by driving their guests in a Red Routemaster Bus to The Roost in Dalston for the reception. The Roost is a former Victorian pub which has been converted into a photographic and film location, what a great place to have a wedding reception. The look of amazement of people’s faces as they walked in was great to see. Following a champagne reception on the ground floor and in the rear garden the wedding breakfast was served on the first floor.

Jon had two best men who gave a speech together which was rather interesting, but they turned out to be very amusing and had the guests laughing, but my favourite line was during Kaye’s dad Steve’s speech when he said he did not view the occasion as losing a daughter rather than as gaining a ticket to the FA cup final …… a reference to the fact that Jon works at Wembley stadium.

The Roost is split over four floors and the top floor was full of interesting props from previous photographic shoots where I took some interesting and rather quirky photographs of Kay and Jon. They are a lovely couple but both very camera shy so I had to ensure I put them at their ease, I work mainly as a reportage photographer so this worked very well with Kaye and Jon and they told me afterwards they actually enjoyed the experience.  Kaye and Jon’s guests were able to wander around the old building at their leisure throughout the day, checking out all the various props etc, your guests won’t get bored in The Roost!

The staff at Stoke Newington Town Hall could not have been more helpful with Kaye and Jon’s guests and for me they placed no restrictions on the photographs I could take, this allowed me to photograph their day fully, missing nothing!
