London Wedding Photographer at The Lamb Tavern; I was catching up with my friend Cristina, and discussing her new adventure, selling premium scarves produced in a factory owned by her father in Italy. You can check out the range here; iitag.
Cristina casually mentioned a friend was looking for a photographer. A few days later, I was sat with Anastasia discussing her wedding, she is a merchandiser for luxury bags company, Anya Hindmarch.
On the day of the wedding, I made my way to Tower Hamlets Registry Office for the wedding ceremony. I arrived early – as I always do – and decided to sit down for a relaxing coffee. Once drunk, I made my way to the Registry Office and waited for Anastasia and Theo to arrive. The bride is Italian and the groom is Greek. It was a wonderful to see the two families mixing before the ceremony.
Anastasia arrived in a fabulous Gatsby styled wedding dress, with a faux-fur jacket. The ceremony was very emotional and there were tears, and hugs !
Then everyone jumped onto a Red Vintage Bus for a 2 hour tour across London, taking in the sights of London via London Bridge, Westminster, Piccadilly to reach our final destination in the City of London, The Lamb Tavern, Leadenhall Market.
After the group photos were done, the cutting of the cake and first dance happened and then the yummy food. Then it was time for me to pack up and leave the couple with their closest family and friends.
