Imogen & Glen – Garden Museum Wedding Reception Photography
18 August 2018
Imogen and Glenn chose the fabulous Garden Museum, by London’s Lambeth Bridge to host their wedding reception. The Garden Museum sits beside the Thames and over looks the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben, as central London wedding reception venues go, its hard to beat. I met Imogen and her gang in the final stages of pre wedding prep in the beautiful home of a family friend in Chiswick, wedding dress hanging elegantly and bridesmaids in a production line of hair and make up.
Glenn meanwhile was coordinating the order of service at St.Helen’s Church. St.Helen’s Church is tucked away in the City Of London surrounded by mega modern architecture including the Gherkin. Imogen and Glenn met for the first time at the church some years before so the wedding venue held a special place in the lives.
As the guests got themselves seated in the church a white Black Cab (for anyone not from London a ‘white Black Cab’ will sound a very strange thing!) arrived with Imogen and her father. Met by four excited bridesmaids Imogen looked absolute dynamite. The service went without a hitch and before long Imogen and Glenn were man and wife, with strong Christian beliefs the happy couple glowed with joy. Confetti and family portraiture done, we were on our way to the Garden Museum for the reception, speeches and celebrations.
After a delicious feast the speeches commenced, Imogen’s father, Glenn’s Sis and best man all took to the stage but it was Glenn’s speech that hit the home run – he smashed it out of the park!
After a very swift room turn around (The Garden Museum is a very tight ship, terrific staff and wonderful service) a traditional cèilidh band (Folk music) started the evenings dancing.
I left the party in full swing and would like to thank Imogen and Glenn for making me so welcome. An additional thank you goes to Karen and Simon, Imogen’s folks for being so enormously helpful!
