When I talk about Westminster Register Office Weddings, it’s not always obvious these days which venue I am referring to. In the not-so-distant past, Westminster registrars used to host their weddings at the wonderful Marylebone Old Town Hall. Then the building was sold for refurbishment. It was only supposed to last a year and then “we” (the wedding folks) were supposed to move back in.
More than 2 years later, it’s still not ready. In the meantime, the ceremonies are mostly being held at Mayfair Library. When you look at my blog, you’ll find lots of posts relating to Mayfair Library Weddings. But really, they are Westminster Register Office Weddings, if you see what I mean. Because it is the lovely Westminster registrars who will be there to guide you through your ceremony. So that’s just a little bit of background for you, as to why we are having wedding ceremonies in what is still a public library in the heart of Mayfair.
We had a gorgeous sunny day in April for Robyn and Evangelos’s wedding in the Mayfair Room of Mayfair Library. Everybody was in a fabulous mood and the two families spent most of the time before the ceremony giggling together. It’s lovely to see when people who are about to become a new family together get on so well.
For me, however, it was one of those rare days where I just couldn’t get my brain and my mouth to function properly at the same time (good job my brain and my camera still worked in sync though!). Not only did I twice refer to the groom’s home as Greece (even though he is from Cyprus, and I DO know the difference!!). I also managed to call the poor bride “Paige” all day long, even though her name is Robyn! That has never happened to me before, but I just couldn’t stop doing it. Every time I opened my mouth the wrong name came out. It was VERY embarrasing, believe me! And you’ll be pleased to know that this is NOT normal behaviour for me!! Thankfully though, everyone was very forgiving and we all had a good giggle about it.
Still, I’m very pleased that I was able to make up for my brain outage on the day, with some really gorgeous photographs of this lovely couple. These photographs really capture what a joyous day it was. Don’t Robyn and Evangelos look adorable? I wish them all the happiness in the world together. And I hope they have a wonderful big family wedding in CYPRUS next year!
