I haven’t photographed a wedding at Islington Register Office for a little while now, and so I was delighted to go back for Kevin and Lisa’s wedding, as it’s one of my favourite register offices in London. It is just such a beautiful room, with the deep wood paneled walls and the lush red carpet. And atrium ceiling is just wonderful.
Bride Lisa was a guest at another wedding I photographed earlier in the year, Donna and Miles’ Chelsea Register Office wedding, and booked me shortly after that. I love it when that happens. I hadn’t met groom Kevin before the big day, but that’s never a problem.
We’d been having a bit of trouble with the weather – it was extremely changeable and kept switching between full on sunshine, and heavy winds with rain. So after the ceremony, we decided it was safer to photograph the family groups and wedding portraits inside. The weather switched back just as we were leaving the building, so we finished off our groups with the Hens and “The Boys” before the wedding party headed off for their wedding lunch on a London bus.
I wish them both a lifetime of happiness together.
