Keeley and Chris were Yorkshire a lad and lass who loved East London. They both had a taste for all things hip and cool. As a Yorkshire lass myself who studied photography at the University of the Arts in London and ex-East Londonite we were on good ground. I knew the venue, hotel and area well. Although I a North Yorkshire wedding photographer. I’m always happy to travel to different locations. This winter wedding is very cool, very hip and has to be one of my favourites to date. The bride and groom, all their family and pals traveled down from York.
The hotel was truly original in every way. The Zetter hotel is in a cobbled yard, tranquil but in the heart of London. I arrived early in the morning while the girls were all getting their hair done. Then it was quick smart, off in a black cab, to Selfridges. Keeley (and the girls) had booked in for wedding make-up with the entire Laura Mercier team. Another hop back in the cab, and back to getting dressed. The venue for the wedding, just over the road but that walk when you’re a bride takes nerves of steel. Off to The ye olde worldy Museum of the order of Saint John we went.
I caught up with Chris, who was waiting eagerly in the beautiful old hall. The wedding was a real mix of old and new, quirky and hip meet traditional in the most beautiful way. Keeley came down the aisle with her best pal, Dan, followed by her three daughters. As you’ll see later on the family were a huge part of the day. The first dance was shared with the whole family, a really touching moment.
It was a hop, skip and jump onto a lovely vintage red bus. We made our way to Vintage salt for a wonderfully quirky posh fish and chips. The entire of the
restaurant was hired out for the wedding party. The cake was a beautiful three tier with a modern day twist. After everyone was fed, watered and fed again, we jumped back on the bus and headed to the NEXT VENUE! That’s right three venues. I told you it was a cool wedding. Lastly but most definitely not leastly St.Bart’s Brewery a central London wedding venue with a difference.
