Village Underground Wedding Photography, London
A return to my old stomping ground in East London for Seeta and Nathan’s wedding at Village Underground. The bride got ready at home in Hackney with her team of bridesmaids. After the full make-up and hair machinations, she slipped into her Martina Liana wedding dress. As the bridesmaids headed to the ceremony in a normal cab, Seeta and her dad jumped into something very different. They had a vintage Indian Ambassador car from the 1950’s from Karma Kars, decked out in flowers.
The ceremony was held at Shoreditch Town Hall on Old Street. Opened in 1866, this building has a rich history, but like the Town Hall Hotel it is no longer a seat of local government. It fell into neglect in the 80’s and 90’s and was turned into an event and community space in the early noughties. The civil ceremony was held in the Council Chamber, before everyone moved into the Mayor’s Parlour for drinks. Everyone then headed round the corner to Village Underground, a huge, restored, Victorian warehouse. This brilliant space makes a great wedding venue and provided a very cool backdrop to the reception and party. There were speeches aplenty, and the cutting of the gigantic tiered wedding pork pie. The day was rounded off by the surprise appearance of a brilliant Prince tribute act.
