OK, so I’ve said this many times, but really today I would love for you to read today’s wedding blog SLOWLY. It’s the images, which are absolute proof that children lift weddings to the next level and then some. Of course our bride and groom are absolutely stunning and this is a day filled with joy and celebration (and pre-pandemic happy hugs!) – but honestly, the kids make it. You will smile, and I hope you’ll chuckle as you scroll through this joyful and relaxed celebration. There simply couldn’t be a more perfect wedding to brighten your Friday and lift your spirits!

Checklist for if you’re getting married on a really hot day (like you’ll know, but…) fans. Ice lollies. Flip flops (including mens’). And now that’s all clear, here’s a wonderfully authentic Islington wedding to make your eyes and hearts happy. Our friends and London wedding photographers York Place Studios describe it as “streety” – a wedding photography style you may not have heard of until today. Street wedding photography is a rare gem to stumble across on wedding blogs, but amongst wedding photographers it’s the gold standard – and York Place are mindblowingly brilliant in their field.

I worry a little that the name “micro wedding” will become synonymous with the word “pandemic”. I’d love to come up with a word for these incredibly joyful, intimate weddings that captures their magic, because they’re bursting so full of heart and soul they deserve to be celebrated and dreamed of as much as any big ‘dream wedding’ ever is.
