Summer Lovin’ On The Hackney Riviera

This wedding is pretty much why I do what I do. Bromley Town Hall to canal-side canapés and drinks in Hackney Wick’s Crate Brewery, these gorgeous, self described geeks (geeks are the best), kept it all within their neighbourhood. Our fierce bride in the greatest gold sequinned wedding dress walked herself down the aisle, they wrote their own hilarious vows and everyone shed tears at some of the most articulate and moving readings.

Then all aboard the classic big red bus over to Hackney Wick where Crate’s floating bar was waiting for them, serving excellent food by the delicious Canababes and free flowing liquid refreshment in the sunshine until it was time for more gorgeous words (and tears), food & dancing inside the brewery amongst the beer barrels. Being able to witness the beautiful and loving bonds between the couple, the families (particularly the bride and her sister) and their friends (such great stories!), reminded me that love really is the best thing about being a human, and being able to document it for a living is pretty damn cool.
