It’s been a constant source of amazement for us this year how resourceful our couples have been in scaling back their weddings, without compromising on ambition or sense of occasion. Ellie & Tom’s wedding at Hackney Town Hall and The Roost Pub Dalston definitely had the fun factor turned up to 11 and was an absolute blast right from the word go. Every curveball and restriction thrown at them whilst planning the wedding seemed only to serve as motivation to embrace the challenge and do things a little differently…if life gives you lemons and all that!
With face coverings required during the ceremony, Ellie & Tom went the extra mile supplying guests with masks custom printed with their smiling faces proudly adorning each side. Looking down the aisle it certainly was a sight to behold, adding some welcome cheer to this drab apparel!
Finding sufficient transport to relocate the from the Hackney Town Hall to the reception may have given some pause for thought. However, taking this in their stride (quite literally) the couple with boombox in hand lead their guests a merry dance through the streets of Hackney to a confetti soaked arrival into The Roost Pub.
Ellie looked truly spectacular in her Kleinfeld wedding dress, exuding a sassy elegance that was just next level. A special mention should also be reserved for those wedding shoes…absolutely KICK ASS!
We always jump at the chance to shoot a London pub wedding. There’s something about the feeling of familiarity and compression of space (as well the booze on tap) that always delivers amazing results. The Roost Pub Dalston (which doubles as a film studio) has an amazing variety of indoor and outdoor spaces to explore, along with some incredible quirky furnishings and is definitely somewhere we would recommend as a reception venue.
As the sun set on this amazing day we stole a few brief moments walking the surrounding streets to capture some couples portraits in the hazy autumn light.
We had such a great time capturing Ellie & Tom’s Roost Pub Wedding. It was a day brimming with laughter and fun and for a brief few hours brought a hopeful glimmer of what will return after all this lockdown shenanigans are over! Thank you for having us along to capture your very special day, here’s a few of our favourite moments…
