The Happenstance London Wedding – Victoria & Chris

15th February 2017

The Happenstance London Wedding

Chris and Victoria’s Vintage Wedding

It was a rather gloomy morning when I travelled into London to photograph the wedding of Chris and Victoria, they’d chosen a vintage Hollywood glamour theme for their special day and they certainly didn’t intend to let the weather spoil their fun. It wasn’t the first time I’d met them, we have friends in common so we’ve bumped into each other at various parties over the years, I’d also photographed Victoria’s sister’s wedding so I felt like I already knew many of the guests.

St Etheldredas Wedding Ceremony

After the ceremony in the gorgeous old church of St Etheldredas the sun came out, just in time for Chris and Victoria’s portraits. We’d almost finished when the rain returned and we were stranded under trees until a lovely lady gave Chris and Victoria her umbrella. We got some fun shots of them in the rain outside St Pauls cathedral but I had to stay under my tree until Victoria’s brother James rescued me with a large umbrella to keep my camera dry.

The Happenstance Wedding Venue

But the rain certainly didn’t put a dampener on the day. A vintage bus transported everyone to The Happenstance where the celebrations continued with a temporary tattoo station, a Krispy Kreme doughnut wedding cake and inflatable guitars. The day was full of fun right till the very end, and we even managed to sneak out for a few romantic portraits in the dark!

Lovely, again! Such beautiful work. I really love the shots of the b&g by those doors – superb :)

Beautiful storytelling images as always. Wow size of those doors!!!!

Love this wedding Louise and you have captured it wonderfully. The bride looks gorgeous and I love the golden wedding bus, this should become standard.

Gorgeous couple and such a great set of images, love the bouquet with the feathers in. Love the bashed umbrella very much.

There’s not even one photo that I don’t like about this wedding.. and I’ve spent a few minutes to look at all of them! Words aren’t helping me right now <3

They both look amazing – love the one of them walking and Chris holding the umbrella

Love the fun party images, excellent work!

So beautiful. Flawless hair and make-up. Love the vinyl table plan and the donuts. Genius ideas. And I adore the nighttime shot.

Omg! Those doors, absolutely epic backdrop.

stunning as always, brides shoes are awesome :)
