Jemma Charlie hawksmoor wedding photography
Jemma and Charlie organized a perfect London Wedding – Hoxton Hotel for pre wedding bubbles, then Islington Town Hall for the rings and ” I do ” followed by cake and drinks in a private pub and…… finally dinner, speeches and dancing at a fabulous Hawksmoor Restaurant. I met Jemma for pre wedding pictures at the Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch. ( If you haven’t had the pleasure of staying at this fabulous east London hotel then I suggest you check it out asap ) Together with her mum and three sisters, Jemma already looked suitably amazing when I arrived and the discrete presence of a photographer didn’t seem to impact on any of the ladies – just for the record, I always turn down champagne before I shoot a wedding but it’s always nice to be offered!
We all grabbed taxis to Islington Town Hall and the Council Chamber – booked for the nuptials. Jemma entered the Council Chamber to the sound of Europe’s “The Final Count Down “ , bride and groom looking happy and relaxed. Jemma and Charlie were adamant on a very short family portrait session – max 10 mins on the town town hall steps. After a lovely bride and groom picture session we all made our way to The Four Sisters on Cannonbury Road for drinks and cake before everyone retired for a few hours ready to rally themselves for a full on Black Tie wedding reception at The Hawksmoor Restaurant at the Guildhall. The Hawksmoor staff were on fine form and ready with glasses of bubbles and a smile. Amazing food ( best for dedicated carnivors) and fantastic speeches followed.
Huge thanks to both Jemma and Charlie for asking me to shoot their wedding. I wish them them both the very best in the future.
