I’ve done weddings at Islington Town Hall, and at The Drapers Arms, and weddings with gospel choirs, and Choccywoccydoodah cakes (the wedding before last!), and Routemaster buses, and bagpipes, and grooms in kilts, and grooms with a best woman. However, John & Gez’s wedding was the first time I’ve seen all of these things together at the same wedding!
New things: It was my first ever wedding with two grooms, my first wedding at 1 Lombard Street (lovely venue, lovely food) and the first time I’ve taken family group shots in the middle of a London street.
So after getting ready at the Threadneedle Hotel in the City, John and Gez and their respective best people travelled up to Islington for their ceremony, which was accompanied by the London Youth Gospel Choir in fine voice. Then after a quick pint the couple joined their guests at The Drapers Arms for Pimms and nibbles before jumping on to a pair of buses for a quick tour of London. The tour ended in the City again at 1 Lombard Street where the florist had left a serious mark, Choccywoccydoodah had left a serious cake and the kitchen served up some serious food.
