London Wedding Photography at One Marylebone // Hamish & Katie

When I was a student, I worked at my local Cineworld. Although it paid a pittance, one of the perks was as many free movies as I wanted  – the perfect job for a film nerd like me. Wanting my future career to somehow be involved in the film industry, I nagged the manager until he agreed to arrange a day’s work experience in the film buying department at head office. There, I met Hamish, who at that time was a film buyer. Ten years later, through the power of Twitter, our paths crossed again. By now I was a photographer, and Hamish was getting married.

In film fashion, this is the story of a boy named Hamish and a girl called Katie.

Hamish & Katie decided to have a “first look”, so we were able to capture their portraits before the ceremony when the light was perfect.

I think my favourite thing about this couple is their ability to just have fun. They radiate happiness.

Being a film nut, Hamish had to try his hand at some directing.

Tables were named after favourite movies, the microphone for the speeches was from “The King’s Speech”, and the place settings have to be the best I’ve ever seen.

Weddings at One Marylebone have a quirky vibe and the location suited Hamish and Katie’s laid back wedding perfectly. With over 170 guests, the atmosphere was buzzing, and the film references were a treat for a cinephile like myself. A genius touch was having The La De Dahs sing “Ring of Fire” whilst the couple signed the registrar. It kept the crowd occupied and there wasn’t a frown in the house. If I wasn’t already hitched, I’d be stealing that little gem for my own.

To Hamish and Katie ~ Thank you for having me document such a special day. I hope you had an amazing honeymoon travelling around South America, and I hope the pictures are everything you hoped for.

Guests can view all of the images here.

Thank you to  Chloe Browne for second-shooting, and to my assistant Daisy for always making sure I was fed with film.

  • What a wonderful wedding ~ love the film references! And yes, those place cards are fabulous. The shots around London are exquisite, beautifully captured.

  • I have to say this because I don't think I've ever seen one quite like it before - that image of the ceremony room without any people is just beautiful. It's like a piece of perfect....peace.
