Making it official
My first London wedding, with the promise of a walk through Camden with all it’s colour and vibrancy, a canal boat ride and a dinosaur theme, I think it was safe to say I was like a kid waiting for Christmas to get this one snapped!
Whilst Ryan was eagerly waiting at The Arlington Conference Centre for his watch to click to 2:15pm, Laura and her girls were strutting their stuff over from a nearby hotel. She looked amazing in her dress from Brides of Southampton which had been cleverly altered by her close friend and bridesmaid. The perfect dress to suit her quirky style.
The ceremony was led by close friend James. It was very personal and meant a lot to them to have him do it. There were also a couple of lovely readings too… keeping to the theme, we had one about two dinosaurs which got the guests giggling.
We attempted AND PULLED OFF a wish of Laura and Ryan’s to nail a group shot on the bridge over the canal. I may have deafened some nearby drinkers and risked going for a dip in the canal but hey … I got the shot! And the fun didn’t stop there. We moved straight on to an awesome, colour packed confetti shot, my fav part of the day.
We arrived to the docking area and once everyone had wobbled their way on board the Hidden Depth Canal Cruises, we were off! The wedding party were split in two and each group took an idyllic boat ride up the canal (consuming a naughty amount of home-made cookies along the way!) to moor up at The London Canal Museum where the reception was taking place.
Food and drinks
I loved that the speeches included one from the maid of honour and one from the bride herself. Something I don’t see enough of and applaud loudly!
Laura and Ryan’s London wedding really was a superb day, celebrated it with some fab people.
