On the hottest day of the year, a scorching 40 degrees, we headed to London to photograph the lovely Alannah and Victor. Their outfits were very modern and suited the city elopement vibe well. She was styled by Erin Kelly Bridal and wore a white sleeveless jumpsuit from Catherine Deane, statement jewellery from Halo and Co and had a dried bouquet from Samantha May Floristry. Erin chose the outfit from Catherine Deane as they have the best range of jumpsuits and separates for brides and they're a eco-sustainable brand. The plain jumpsuit paired with the statement bracelet is a classy but relaxed look. We took some classic photos at Old Marylebone Town Hall, the arch is such a perfect spot for photos, it's becoming very popular amongst photographers. We took some photos on the steps as well, the town hall makes such a lovely backdrop, it's one of the best registry offices in London to get married in.
After our shoot at Marylebone Town Hall we walked around the nearby streets looking for some more locations to use. The architecture in London makes most streets photogenic so we got the couple to walk down the middle of a quiet road for some cool photos. We found a splash of pink paint on a wall which we though would look great and frame the couple perfectly. On our way to the station we passed a small park so we went in there and used the trees as a background to give some variety to the gallery.
We headed to the tube and got some cool shots of the couple walking in the station and on the escalators, I like finding unusual places to shoot, it makes for some interesting shots. When I'm shooting in London I can't resist getting a shot of the bride and groom crossing the road.
We got to Bishopsgate and had a walk towards Spitalfields Market to find some more locations. There was a beautiful patch of light coming down between these glass buildings so we had to get a shot there, I also love the reflections of the couple in the glass on either side. On our walk we also found a lovely blue building with a small patch of light shining on it which looked amazing so we took a few photos there and headed back. Although it was extremely hot and everyone was melting, we had a great time, thank you to everyone involved in the shoot!
