a wedding at Hackney Town Hall in East London by Simon Cardwell

Today I would like to share with you a photograph from my archive, the reason for me choosing this wedding is because one of the bridesmaids has recently booked me to shoot her wedding this summer at the University of Nottingham.

It is a great tribute when guests, friends or anyone who has attended a wedding I have shot then books me to photograph their wedding. Especially one from a few years ago (this wedding took place back in 2013).

The day started at Threadneedles hotel near Bank Station in the city of London:

As I have mentioned before, I love a ‘bride in a lift’ photo when such a photo presents itself:

The ceremony took place at Hackney Town Hall in East London:

Hackney Town Hall is a beautiful building & makes for a lovely backdrop:

The reception venue was close to Liverpool Street Station, & I persuaded the bride & groom to walk down to the back of the station for a quick picture:

I never tire seeing passers by react to a bride and groom passing them in the street. If the wedding is taking place in Central London or any other city centre I always suggest we venture out onto the streets.

In this case tourists with luggage makes a great juxtaposition with the bride and groom:

The bride & groom entering the room for the wedding breakfast is always one of my favourite moments:
