Flamingos in London at a wedding!

Today’s English wedding is so full of amazing things I didn’t know where to start. Hence the title: yes, there are flamingos in London. Being a northerner, that’s not really surprising, but it’s definitely lovely and exotic and pretty glamorous… which leads nicely on to…

…Colin and Lee’s rooftop wedding in Kensington. Where there are flamingos. And the photographs of the wedding and reception sent to me by wedding photographer Kirsten Mavric are lavish and gorgeous and exciting. Sit back and enjoy them!
