Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding
I LOVE Trinity Buoy Wharf, a quirky London wedding venue near Greenwich that is capable of holding all different types of weddings. I’ve shot boat receptions, nautical themed weddings and Indian weddings at Trinity Buoy Wharf! It’s an ideal location for your fun London wedding. The warehouse ceiling is nice and high to hold Jewish chuppahs and Asian mandap alike, although it maybe wasn’t high enough for this couple’s bouncy castle!
Olamide and Paul started their wedding day getting ready in their flat together with their friends. I always love to shoot people in their homes together as I think it has a lovely full story where both partners can be equally covered, with the personal touch of being surrounded by all their meaningful objects. The couple had morning breakfast but got changed at Trinity Buoy Wharf toilets to keep their clothes neat and unwrinkled.
After getting ready everyone hopped over to their Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding and their friends set up the table names which were all named after characters from the couple’s favourite books
As feminists Olamide and Paul had both sets of parents enter and they themselves entered the ceremony together. They held their ceremony by the open Trinity Buoy Wharf warehouse doors with sisters and cousins providing the readings.
After their ceremony they had their first bounce to open the bouncy castle during their drinks reception
Their delicious canapés and incredible food was provided by Crumble Events who do truly original and aesthetically beautiful catering. I’ve never seen a whole fish at a wedding before but Paul and Olamide are HUGE foodies. The guests enjoyed the sunshine, bouncy castle, giant Jenga alongside the gorgeous canapés.
Between their dinner they had speeches and also a pub quiz of sorts. They also played a game where whatever messages the guests wrote on the back of the name cards had to be read out by the couple. They encouraged their guests to play around with the table name light boxes which doubled as entertainment as they created funny and rude messages for each other. The centrepieces were succulents in lightbulb aquariums that the couple created themselves and told their guests that they could take home.
For their Photo Booth they set up a Fujifilm install printer that connected to a mobile phone app so anyone can print and stick their phone snaps in. They had a cheese tower instead of a wedding cake, and they gave a bottle of Austrian schnapps to the winner of the pub quiz when they cut the cheese cake!
Their dancefloor was a DIY silent disco and the guests chilled on the deck chairs outside by the Thames in the beautiful London city lights.
