The City Of London
August 27, 2009
Find your photographer through Rock n Roll Bride then it’s pretty much a given that I’m going to totally love your wedding and wedding photography! That’s exactly what Carolyn & Marc did and yep, I was right – stunning!
The couple got married right in the centre of London – ‘The City’ as it’s known. I love this part of town. My Dad works around here so I have fond memories of visiting him at his office when I was younger, marvelling at the huge and modern nature of landmarks like
The Gherkin and The Lloyds Building vs. the ornate detail of the indoor Leadenhall Market (where Carolyn & Marc had their reception.) I remember my Dad once taking me into on of the bars in this area which to a 15 year old kid was very exciting!
Be sure to head over to
Marianne’s blog for a much larger selection of images from this day!
Thanks to Marianne for sending these to me and stay tuned for yet another amazing wedding – photographer sourced from this very site – later!
ps yes there are about a million images in the post but you will forgive me once you check them out!

A Contemporary Minimalist Wedding: Hayley & Matthew
July 17, 2012
"Matthew is an architect & loves modernist architecture and things that are minimalist, well designed & have clean lines so we decided we'd like our wedding to reflect this", newlywed Hayley wrote. "The venue really set the scene with it's amazing art deco features but funky modern interior so we chose not to detract from this keeping decorations & flowers to an absolute minimum & only in white. We wanted the guests & bridesmaids to add the pop of colour which they did!"
A Wedding on a Budget with Portraits in IKEA: Janet & Dave
September 17, 2012
I'm rather partial to IKEA... I know it's not the fanciest of home stores, but whenever I persuade Gareth that we need a trip there (I'm sure we're due another one soon) I feel like a proper grown up. I can actually afford the stuff (like who decided £2000 was standard for a table and chairs? pah John Lewis, PAH!) and it makes me feel all educated buying things with Swedish names. Plus their items are always pretty... even if not always functional - "why yes Gareth I do need that cardboard deer head to put on my office wall..." And don't even get me started on the kids department. I just wish the pink chest of drawers came in adult size...
So when wedding photographer and all round cool dude Chris Barber sent me Janet & Dave's wedding I was excited. Not just because of Dave's Rock n Roll stylings but because they chose the Coventry Ikea as the location for their wedding day portrait sesh. GENIUS! Oh and they spent just £4000 on their day. I'm IN AWE.
DIY Day of the Dead, Lobster and Rabbit-Themed Romantic Garden Party Wedding in London: Kirsty & Steve
We Heart Pictures
August 5, 2013
When Kirsty and Steve planned to marry they knew they wanted tradition to play no part in it. This started with their surname. Instead of keeping their own names or one of them taking the other's they decided to merge their two names to create a brand new one. So Kirsty Foster and Steve Pate became Mr & Mrs Fate!
When it came to capturing their wedding day they wanted photos that were bright, romantic, playful, with a little kooky edge. They found We Heart Pictures through Rock n Roll Bride and couldn't have been happier with their choice! They wedding took place on June 7th at Hoxton Hall, London.
Eclectic Basement Wedding: Louisa & Richie
April 10, 2014
This is definitely a wedding I wish I was at. Louisa and Richie sure do know how to throw one hell of a party! The styling for the celebration was really centred around their venue - the basement of Shoreditch Town Hall called The Ditch. An unusual choice maybe (and one with no natural light!) but it fit perfectly with what the couple wanted. Louisa's dress was designed by Catherine Deane. She wore Badgley Mischka and her veil was vintage.
Eclectic East End Wedding Tea Party: Cassandra & Howard
October 14, 2013
Cassandra and Howard were married at The Roost in Dalston, London, a photographic studio and shooting location. Because it wasn't a traditional wedding venue it meant their whole day was really chilled out and non-traditional, but also that they could completely plan it the way they wanted. "We’d had a really small and intimate wedding ceremony in Cornwall with just our immediate families so we wanted to throw a vintage wedding tea party for friends and relatives here in London", began the bride. "The Roost was an amazing find. It's a former Victorian pub in deepest, darkest Dalston converted into a four floor photographic and film shoot location. My heart skipped a beat the first time we viewed it. It was perfect. I just loved the eclectic vintage vibe and ‘out there’ style of the place. From the gorgeous House Of Hackney wallpapers, to the giant props, old film posters and quirky paintings on the wall. We were just blown away."
A Bohemian but Urban Wedding with a 70s Twist: Mark & Ania
November 13, 2012
Mark & Ania didn't particularly want a theme for their wedding, but what they did want was a relaxed and laid back wedding with all their friends and family. They chose Islington town hall as their ceremony venue as the north east of London is one of their favourite areas of the city. For their reception they headed to AK Rowing Club which is right on the bank of the Thames in Hammersmith.
Taxidermy and Skull Wedding at Islington Metal Works: Sarah & Ben
July 18, 2014
Sarah and Ben chose Islington Metal Works for their July 2013 wedding. The bride wore Valentino, the groom a snappy suit from Topman, and their whole day was just a massive representation of the two of them.
Nature and Geometry Inspired Wedding at the Eden Project: Bethan & Rob
Claudia Rose Carter
August 11, 2014
Bethan and Rob's wedding was held at The Eden Project in Cornwall. They took their inspiration from the domes themselves and the plants inside, creating a natural themed wedding with geometric accents.
"The ceremony and reception were both inside the Mediterranean Biome in the Eden Project", wrote the bride. "Thematically we had nature, geometry (taking inspiration from both the biome’s hexagonal roof structure and plant life) and fun, with a hint of the mystical. We wanted to tap into our friends’ creative talents as much as possible to make it really personal."
