Laura and Darryl found the perfect location not far from their new home together for their day, The Horniman Museum and Gardens, a place they loved and a beautiful bit of green in the city. The ceremony took place in the elegant Grade II Listed Victorian Conservatory, a photographer's dream to capture with it's geometric lines and natural light.
Effortlessly stylish and elegant would be the words I'd use to sum up their day. So much thought had gone into every detail, from Laura's beautiful vintage 1950's dress, the cake (made by Laura herself) and the subtle quirky references in the tables decorations to their travels together. The couple also bought their love of gardening into the day with luscious shades of green seen in the herb bouquets, plant favours for guests to take away and a thumb print tree guest book.
After the ceremony guests were able to explore the grounds with it's incredible views over London whilst a jazz duo played at the bandstand. Just before the group photo, Laura discovered a caterpillar climbing up Darryl's suit, a very cute little chance encounter, just the kind I love to capture.
The last part of the evening was hosted by Ronnie Scotts Rejects a swing, soul and funk party band. The couple had prepared a surprise Lindy Hop first dance which went down a treat.
Loved their day, a real pleasure to photograph. As always, a big thank you to Amybeth for her awesome assisting and support.xx
