London Alternative Wedding Photographer - Islington Town Hall Wedding Photography

Whenever I get asked specific questions about being an alternative wedding photographer, I try to answer as precisely as possible but somehow I always end up saying: ‘but it depends, every wedding is different’. 


Some couples only want to hire a photographer who has shot at their venue before and that is fine. However that does not guarantee the photos will be any better than the ones someone shooting there for the first time would have produced.


I have actually shot two weddings at the exact same wedding venues (i.e. ceremony venue and reception venue) and they could not have been more different. The experience I had gained from the first event did not help at all for the second one. One wedding took place on a bright sunny spring day and the other one was a dark, rainy autumn wedding. Although the layout and decoration of the reception venue was quite similar, the red bar area had been painted black and redecorated in a different style. But what made the contrast between these two weddings more obvious was the actual atmosphere of the day due to the personality of the bride and groom and their guests.


The following alternative wedding is a good example of this. I had already shot Islington Town Hall weddings before this one. I had also shot wedding routemasters before this one. And I had shot pub weddings before – not at the Shillibeers though.  So what made this wedding special and exciting to me was the outgoing fun personality of the bride and groom. I had a ball photographing such a demonstrative couple! They had planned an unconventional, fun and relaxed wedding complete with a ‘disco’ style routemaster and a funny wedding quiz and games for everyone to enjoy.


Here is a selection of my favourite photos of the day. Enjoy!
