Maxine + Maxwell
National Theatre Wedding Photography, London
Also known as Max and Max, this couple are the closest I’ve come to a bride and groom with the same name! As you can see, this creative pair took full advantage of this quirk by creating their own MM logo. This was present on the bridal jewellery and even in flowers on the wall of Trinity Buoy Wharf.
After getting ready at her mum’s house with her bridesmaids, everybody jumped in cabs to the South Bank. The Deck on the top of the National Theatre was the fantastic venue for their ceremony, and a few drinks afterwards. Upon leaving The Deck the wedding took to the water, climbing aboard a Thames Clipper down the river to Trinity Buoy Wharf.
Guest of honour at the reception was Maxine’s prized Mini, and the late September weather held out for drinks outside. Once inside there was time for the wedding breakfast, and speeches, before it was time to cut the jelly. Yes, you read correctly. No wedding cake for this couple. A friend had made a load of very fancy mini jellies for all the guests to eat as their dessert. There were also a couple of large ones for ceremonial cutting.
Following dessert there was a photo booth in a cab, and then the quirkiness continued with the first dance. Maxine and Maxwell had always joked with friends and family that if they did a first dance, they’d do it dressed as pieces of fruit. No one really believed them. Take it away…
