Hoxton Hotel Wedding Preparation
I remember when I first Skyped Anne-Sophie and Antoine that I thought to myself, gosh, these guys are way too beautiful and classy for me! Yes, I do actually say gosh in person. Also crikey. I inherited it from my parents and my boyfriend takes the mick out of me all the time for it. Anyway, I digress... although this couple are very cool, they're also wonderfully laid back and were all about just having a good time with their loved ones, which is a trait all my couples share regardless of how traditional or non-traditional they are! I started the day at the Hoxton Hotel, where they were both staying as many of their Swiss friends and family had flown in for the wedding. Anne-Sophie wore a gorgeous and elegant silk dress and Antoine a classic blue suit, with rustic dried flowers for their bouquet and button holes.
Farm Church Wedding Ceremony, Mayfair
They all jumped in a London Taxi to Farm Church, a stunning Catholic Church hidden in a park next to Mayfair Library. It's such a stunning hidden gem, I'd shot a wedding at the Mayfair Library and had no clue this was there!
Mark's Club Wedding Reception
After the ceremony everyone took a short sunny stroll to Mark's Club where they held their afternoon tea reception. They chose this venue because it has uniquely quirky decor throughout and tasty cakes!
Harrild & Sons Wedding Dinner
After their afternoon tea reception at Marks Club they all hopped on a vintage London bus, a rather unique one level gold kind, to go to Harrild & sons for their wedding dinner. Harrild & Sons is a beautiful Farringdon restaurant with a basement cocktail bar where they had dinner and several sets of speeches including Anne-Sophie's mum's surprise of a rendition of a popular Swiss-French song!
In the basement they had cheese and desserts whilst the main area was turned around into the dancefloor
The next day they had a morning after brunch back at Hoxton Hotel. I specialise in shooting multi-day weddings and see the days outside of the main wedding day as my chance to tell the story of family and friends!
