Larissa & Graeme – Fable Bar Wedding Photography
Larissa and Graeme’s wedding started with pre wedding pictures at The Zetter Town House, then moved onto an old favorite, Islington Town Hall and ended at Fable Bar and Restaurant in Holborn Viaduct, a new venue and soon to become very popular I reckon. Right from the start I knew this was going to be something a bit special. Blessed with bright and warm weather I met Larissa in EC1 to capture her putting the finishing touches to her hair and make up, and though she claimed to have had very little sleep Larissa looked the bees knees! I love shooting at The Zetter Town House, every visit unearths a new room to explore or quirky mantlepiece decoration, not to mention the flattering light and awesome coffee.
Having left Clerkenwell I arrived in Islington to capture images of the groom and his gang having a crafty pint in The Vineyard opposite the Town Hall. It was my first time shooting in The Richmond Room rather than Council Chamber or Mayors Office and I very much liked the amount of space and the flattering light. The service itself was slick – Islington Town Hall wedding team know their business well. Following a terrific confetti moment we went straight into a very quick family group portrait session, 10 minutes max, then straight to the bus for bride and groom portraits and the reception.
Fable Bar and Restaurant is a central London venue, split over 3 floors. There was plenty of space for glasses of fizz and canapes on the mezzanine while the lower level was prepped for dinner and later dancing. The speeches are one of my fave bits of a wedding as the bride and groom and guests reactions to a always make for entertaining images – Graeme’s brother (also best man) did not disappoint. Finishing the evening with cake, dancing…..and cigars I left with the party in full swing. Huge thanks to the Larissa and Graeme for commissioning me to shoot their wedding, I wish them all the very best.
