Anna and Sam’s relaxed and elegant Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding

Anna and Sam had an Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding on a lovely mild October day. Their day reflected them as a couple perfectly. No fuss, simple and elegant. It was a day all about them and their closest friends and family.

The beauty with London wedding photography is that you are never too far away from gorgeous architecture and wonderful registry offices. This wedding had both! Spending the morning with Sam and her bridesmaids was lovely and relaxing. They all did their own hair and make up and spent the morning laughing together.

Anna and Sam were not a couple hot on convention. In fact they strayed away from some ‘typical’ wedding traditions. Anna had her bridesmaids choose dresses that made them feel most comfortable within the colour spectrum of navy blue. They were not matching and I think made the bridal party aesthetics very chic.

After their Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding the couple departed with close knit friends and family to have an intimate wedding breakfast in the centre of London soho’s Two Brydges. With an anti-Brexit march charging through their group photographs Anna and Sam laughed their way through the complications!

During dinner they had their traditional speeches from the father of the bride and the groom, however Anna gave a speech instead of the best man. Yet another way the couple wrote their own wedding day rules together. As a couple it is so important to design your wedding exactly how you want it.

When they met up with all their wedding guests later in the evening (with yet another gorgeous dress change from Anna) the couple had an impromptu first dance to a brass band group! But they decided against cutting a cake together to instead have bespoke cocktails made at their Victorian Bath House venue.

I enjoy documenting couples weddings from memory, but I also love their perspective of the day. I asked Anna and Sam a couple of questions about their Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding and elements of their wedding day that were most special to them as a couple:

What was the best moment of your day?

It is so hard for us to chose one moment! We loved walking out of the Old Marylebone Town Hall as husband and wife for the first time surrounded by our loved ones and, of course, confetti. We also loved our intimate lunch, sharing our speeches and listening to the kind words from each other and the father of the bride. And of course, we enjoyed dancing to the band on the evening – we didn’t want it to end!

Is there any advice you would give to other couples? 

Our top three tips are:

1) Try to have a pre-wedding drinks and a casual event the day after your wedding. The drinks the night before will calm your nerves and the day after will give you chance to say goodbyes to your guests. You will be so busy on the day that you won’t manage to see everyone you’d like so this also helps to spend quality time with as many people as possible.

2) Don’t dwell on the small details that don’t have a  major impact on your day. Such as particular cakes, flowers or decorations. These things can easily be changed last minute meaning it can be a possible let down on the day.

3) Plan in at least a few days after the wedding to just relax and reminisce together. We were so exhausted after the wedding weekend, we couldn’t imagine jetting off to our honeymoon or going back into work. It also meant we didn’t need to organise packing/ getting ready for a holiday in the run up to the wedding too.

Do you have a moment during the day when you were most surprised? 

As the groom, I was surprised just how emotional I was before and during the ceremony (and pretty much all day, to be honest!). Both of us didn’t realise just how special and monumental the moment you actually make that commitment would be. We were also surprised how special it was for our guests to be a part of the ceremony and witness us tie the knot. Looking back, this part of the day was the most special for us both.


Is there anything from your day that you are particularly proud of? 

Our speeches. We managed to say everything we wanted to and gave our guests a deeper insight into our relationship and story. We also managed to do it without too many tears!

Anna and Sam Were Kind Enough To Give a Few Words About My Old Marylebone Town Hall Wedding Photography

We are both so glad we chose Jesse to photograph our Old Marleybone Town Hall wedding. From the initial contact, we knew we were in safe hands with her wide range of experience, professionalism and personalised service. We didn’t feel one worry- and we were right. Jesse was a pleasure to have at our wedding, she helped organise guests and had great advice. Our photos exceeded anything we’d hoped for and we will treasure them forever. Timeless, natural and captured the day perfectly.
