Bride wears red for Marylebone marriage

I knew we were going to have a fun day for Georgina and Sam’s Marylebone marriage ceremony, after they couldn’t stop laughing with each other during our pre-wedding shoot. But I didn’t expect Georgina to be wearing a RED wedding dress! She looked gorgeous!

They were also well prepared. Both were fully dressed and ready to go at Dean Street Townhouse an hour before they were due to leave for their ceremony. All that was left to do was a tiny lipstick touch up.

… so instead, we decided to use the spare time we had for some portraits.

The couple’s close friends and witnesses, Kelli and Sam, were with us at the hotel too, ready for their part in the Marylebone marriage ceremony.

Then finally it was time for the ceremony in the Yellow Ceremony Room. And it was typical of this very happy couple, that they would both dissolve into fits of laughter during the ceremony.

After a few formal group shots on the steps of the register office, we all walked to our final destination, Vinoteca wine bar for the cheese and champagne reception.

And of course, these days, no wedding is complete without a quick status update on Facebook!

The lucky couple are now on a 2 month honeymoon of Southern Europe before finally returning home to their native Australia. Safe travels to them both!
