From the moment David and Katie contacted me about photographing their London wedding at Frederick’s Islington, I just knew it would be a wonderful day, as it consisted of two completely contrasting styles – the proverbial day of two halves.
The service was held at a beautiful medieval church in Monken Hadley, Barnet next to the open spaces of the Common. For the reception they chose the very stylish Frederick’s restaurant in the heart of fashionable Islington, London.
The day itself was perfect – lots of fun photographing the preparations in Katie’s parents’ stunning home, a wonderfully emotional church service and then onto a Routemaster bus where the party got going on the journey to Islington.
I adore photographing London weddings and finding interesting backdrops for the couples’ portraits. Islington was the ideal location for this and by chance one of my favourite spots I found to take David and Katie to happened to be one of their much-loved burger restaurants. It turns out that David spent many hours there while Katie had her wedding dress fittings just around the corner. I just love stories like this and creating images that over the years will become more and more treasured.
I hope you enjoy seeing some of the photos from this elegant London wedding.
