London Wedding Fabulousness! The New Mr&Mrs Skinner.

Hello Gorgeous people!!!!

Firstly I profusely apologise for how long I have been absent – Bad Claire! But I have been very busy planning, photographing fabulous couples and papercutting (more about that in a future post but in case you’re a curious cat take a look at

Fairy Made Paperart.

(Yep you guessed it – that’s me!)
So here’s one I shot earlier.

Kathryn and Paul met in university and now, a few years on, they decided to tie the knot in a very fabulous affair held in that there London town. So I excitedly packed my bags and headed down South for a fun filled weekend of my sister (coincidentally a guest at the wedding), ‘THE’ wedding, champagne, pub quiz-ness and cocktails.

Kathryn and Paul planned a beautifully intimate London affair. Beginning with Kathryn and her maid of honour getting ready in a suite at the

Apex City of London Hotel

with views of Tower Bridge. It was a very relaxed morning of sandwiches, champagne and yours truly stepping up to the plate and doing a bit of hair and make-up (Bet you didn’t know I was a make-up artist ;-P. Hair is a different matter though but I don’t think I did too badly). I always love the emotion of the morning especially the bride greeting her mum. Those little moments are priceless. I feel honoured to share these special times with you guys.

From the hotel we hopped on a Wedding bus. Who doesn’t love a London route master? Alighting the bus at St Pancras train station for the ceremony.

I know, I know! awesome venue. All I can say is that this place truly creates a stunning backdrop for your vows. It fills me with all the romanticism of a bygone era. Despite a brief hiatus in the middle of the ceremony for the arrival of a train the vows went swimmingly and soon Paul and Kathryn were Mr&Mrs.

Now it was time to start their journey as husband and wife together (do you see what I did there?)   Another bus ride through central London brought the wedding party to the reception at

The Samuel Pepys

free house which is a hidden gem in the heart of the City with spectacular views across the Thames.

I took the new Mr&Mrs Skinner to Millennium bridge for a little bit of Bridal photography before speeches were told, food was consumed, alcohol imbibed and a pub quiz commenced.

So here are a few of my favourite images from this very special day. Please let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.
