THE BIG SMOKE
I was back in London this time for the wedding of the awesome Stephanie & Jai. After managing to navigate the mad busy streets to get to their home on their wedding morning I spent some time with the Bride & Groom to be before they headed off to tie the knot.
After a whirlwind of activity I jumped in with the Bride & Bridesmaid as we headed off to The Old Marylebone Town Hall for the ceremony. A special mention must go to the Father of the Bride Arthur who drove us everywhere on the day. Never have I witnessed a vehicle using as much horn in all my days. I can still hear it two days later.
Inside Marylebone Town Hall the room was set out for those that matter most. A cascade of warm chandelier light played upon the walls as Steph entered to the waiting Jai. Vows were made amidst famous grounds. Celebs like Mick Jagger & Paul McCartney both having said their I dos in this very place.
After that it was onto Shoreditch for portraits where colours collided amidst the epic architecture of generations. Walking around with these two around the busy pockets of our capital city was just epic. A perfect prelude to the candle lit dinner & speeches that awaited them at Cinnamon Kitchen.
As the Groom Jai couldn't have his family by his side. Steph put together a video of messages from the other side of the world of loved ones who couldn't make it there.
In the moments shared with Jai & Steph amidst the busy streets & the fading light of a city. It was as though the endless traffic, constant sirens & passers by disappeared. For in those moments this city was theirs & theirs alone.
