Hayley & Stuart – Peasant Pub Wedding Photography Clerkenwell
23 September 2016
Hayley and Stu hit the jackpot for their Peasant Pub Wedding in Clerkenwell. Events kicked off at Hayley’s family home in Upminster. I arrived to find a super-chilled bride and bridal party getting ready customised clothes hangers for the girls, nice touch. Hayley’s dad had organised a special white cab to take him and Hayley to Islington Town Hall. Meanwhile, I hitched a ride with the groom and his boys, plus bridesmaids and guests, on a vintage London Double Decker. A great deal of bubbles were doing the rounds – happy days.
The service itself took place in the Main Chamber at Islington Town Hall. This is a wonderful circular room flooded with natural light. Family group photographs were on the steps outside the Town Hall. The bus journey is only ten-minutes drive to The Peasant on St John Street, Clerkenwell, EC1, for the reception. The Peasant Pub is a cracking wedding reception venue. It is the sister pub of The Londesborough in Stoke Newington, where I shoot a lot of weddings. The Peasant has the same lovely relaxed vibe, and is full of quirk and character with brilliant service and some very tasty food.
After a few celebratory drinks everyone headed upstairs for dinner. After a terrific set of speeches – tears and laughter in equal measure, it was time for cake cutting and dance floor madness. Fuelled by copious amounts of Jagermeister. I left the party in full swing, with a packed dance floor and Stu and his boys outside puffing on fat Cuban cigars.
