Rebecca and Raj chose The Coal Office Restaurant in Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross for their London Wedding. I was commissioned to produce a natural and unposed record of the day and the celebrations. The day started at a Islington Town Hall, specifically Room 99. This was a small and intimate wedding, family only, perfect for the stylish Room 99. The team at Say I do Islington know their stuff and the wedding was emotional, funny and super quick. As the guests made their way outside ready for confetti, R & R remained with me for some portraits in the gorgeous marble corridor and staircase. Room 99 Islington Town Hall Wedding Photographer

Islington Documentary Wedding Photographer
The exterior steps at Islington Town hall are perfect for confetti and family group portraits. Raj and Rebecca walked into a shower of petals and cheers. All the flowers and confetti were bought on the morning of the wedding from Dansk, a cute flower stall 5 minutes walk from Islington Town Hall. The bride and groom only wanted a few family portraits; one of each family and a big one of everyone all together. We were all soon jumping into taxis to whisk (does London traffic EVER enable whisking? Probably not…) us to The Coal Office in Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross.
Islington Assembly Rooms Wedding Photographer
I love Islington Town Hall and the surrounding area. Islington Assembly Hall is another fabulous wedding venue and is literally next door to the Town Hall. The Assembly Rooms are huge and often used for gigs and live performances. I’ve shot a couple of weddings at The Islington Assembly Rooms over the years but I hear they are taking fewer and fewer bookings, not sure why. On this occasion I used the exterior polished granite walls of the Assembly Rooms for a quick portrait.
Coal Office Wedding Reception in London Kings Cross
The Coal Office is a wonderful restaurant in the newly developed Coal drops Yard next to the canal in London Kings Cross. The restaurant has an awesome terrace with views over Kings Cross and Granary Square. The Coal Office wedding reception was held in the Private Dining Room and Terrace on the 1st Floor. The sun was shining and glasses of champagne were waiting as the guests arrived. The bride and groom were keen to get their portrait session done early so they could return to the party and relax. A relaxed stroll along the canal tow path was just the ticket. Neither Rebecca or Raj were keen on posing or overly emotional portraits. Them – ” You’re not going to ask us to kiss or rest our foreheads on each other are you?” Me – “Nope, not my style“.
Booking a London Documentary Wedding Photographer
I left this lovely couple and their welcoming families to enjoy the rest of their delicious food and drinks. I have already booked a table Coal Office for my own family, I only hope the weather is as perfect for my visit. Are you looking for a London Wedding Photographer?
