Wedding | Daf & Alexa ~ Love Hearts, Routemasters & Button Bouquets

Last month I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the wedding of Daf and Alexa, who have organised their wedding within just six months of their engagement.  They decided to have the ceremony at Islington Town Hall with a reception afterwards at The Star near Tufnell Park.  In between the two venues, Daf and Alexa and their guests took a tour through rainy London on two red Routemaster buses, momentarily stopping off near the London Eye during a dry spell…only for the heavens to suddenly open. The weather didn’t dampen anyone’s spirits however, and it was quite fun watching pedestrians struggling with their umbrellas from the warmth and stylish comfort of a red Routemaster bus.

At the reception, Daf and Alexa’s fabulous attention to detail was wonderful to photograph.  As this blog post shows, so much thought had gone into all the little details, from the sweets table through to the family tree of wedding photographs pinned to the blackboard.  Their invitations were designed by Daf’s brother’s very talented girlfriend, and Alexa’s beautiful bouquet included sweet little flowers made from buttons collected from parents and grandparents.  Alexa is a primary school teacher, and her pupils had contributed to the day by customising the bunting.  The whole day had such a sense of fun and happiness.  When it came to the evening party, everyone just pushed the tables aside a little and started to dance.  I really didn’t want to leave at the end of the night.

To Daf & Alexa ~ Thank you so much for choosing me as your photographer and being so lovely to me on the day.  Every moment of your wedding was an absolute pleasure and it’s so fantastic to see a couple so in love as you guys are.  I hope you love the pictures as much as I do.
