Fulham Library wedding ceremony
Chloe and Gordon held their relaxed wedding ceremony in the Fulham Library, with Gordon wearing a fantastic brown tweed suit and Chloe wearing a modern gold jumpsuit. They didn't want me to come and shoot their prep as they're a relaxed non-traditional kind of couple, so they got ready together in the morning and arrived at the ceremony venue together. It was very funny when they tried to make their ceremony entrance and had accidentally locked the door so they were stuck outside the room and it took us all a while to realise, but aside that their ceremony carried on without any further hitches! They carried in suitcases cans of drinks for their friends and family to enjoy after the ceremony to split their drinks ceremony over both Fulham Library and The Balham Bowls Club. After the civil ceremony where they had two readings, everyone jumped onto classic red London routemaster buses to the Balham Bowls Club, which came complete with vintage uniformed ticket masters.

All the guests enjoyed their drinks on the London Routemaster bus to the wedding reception venue in South London, The Balham Bowls Club.
Balham Bowls Club wedding
Everyone continued the drinks reception at the Balham Bowls Club which is a beautiful casual pub in London with amazing food. I've photographed a wedding reception at The Balham Bowls Club before, they're famous for their sausage rolls! Chloe and Gordon are a modern couple so they gave their speech together before dinner. After dinner they cut the cheese stack on their cheese table table which they'd decorated with beautiful succulent decor they'd placed around all the tables.
For their guestbook they provided an instax camera and asked guests to take selfies and post them up with loving messages.
After dinner they opened the dancefloor for fun party times, playing a playlist they'd worked really hard together to create!
