This summer my friend and fellow photographer Lorna ended up with a foot in plaster. Not a good situation for a wedding photographer – you kind of need to be super mobile and for hours on end. I was more than happy to step in and help her out at the intimate London wedding for Dutch couple Faye and Hugo.
Having been living in London for a few years and big fans they wanted to mark their wedding in true London style which meant red double decker buses, union jack bow ties and Chelsea Town Hall. Their bigger wedding happened later back in Holland later in the summer.
We caught up with them at Chelsea Town Hall where the guests arrived on a London bus from The Hilton Hotel in Paddington. The ceremony took place at the Chelsea Town Hall and the couple arrived together, Hugo walking Faye up the aisle in front of a small number of family and friends.
After champagne on the street the group headed back to Faye and Hugo’s gorgeous flat in Notting Hill for cake and champagne. Their friends had clubbed together to buy them a garden bench inscripted with their names and the date of the wedding.
A few hours later everyone regathered at the stunning private members club, Home House, for an evening meal and speeches.
