And we’re back with Lucy & James’ epic London wedding! This time, we set sail on down the River Thames to their colourful Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding reception! And colourful really is the operative word!
River cruise wedding reception
As we left Asylum in Peckham, the wedding party bundled onto a London red Routemaster and took us to the Southbank of River Thames. There, we were treated with beautiful views and a glass of something delicious as we began our journey down from Blackfriars, past Tower Bridge, and to the dock of the industrial Trinity Buoy Wharf. The sun was shining and spirits were high as guests were wowed by the impeccable views of The o2.
A river cruise drinks reception is THE PERFECT way to have a few cheeky drinks and cruise (literally) on to the reception portion of your wedding
Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding Photographer
Trinity Buoy wharf is one of my favourite alternative London venues. Dating back to early 1800 and is now known mostly for its iconic lighthouse housing the Long Player (a piece of music that’ll last 1000 years!)
Most weddings are houses in the huge blank canvas known as The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf. It’s the perfect rustic and industrial all in one venue. The colourful and fun themes continued from Asylum Chapel and the couple chose a perfect blend of the couples’ favourite things: video games, comic books, T.V shows and festivals. The space was beautifully decorated from things Lucy & James designed themselves (check out that bespoke comic book poster of the pair!)
As guests grazed on a huuuuuuge table of food by we used the entire space of Trinity Buoy Wharf for family photos and couple portraits before sitting for the perfect meal of pie and mash!
The speeches included a rap by the bride (female speeches FTW!) before we lit up the dance floor and danced the night away!
Here is some kind words the couple left me as a testimonial:
“I cannot rave about Lex enough – choosing a photographer was a big deal for me – not only are they the part of the day that lives on but as a designer the aesthetic of them was so important. I was recommended Lex by three different people within the space of a month, and that felt too serendipitous to ignore, so I booked her pretty quickly after that! I did then get the nerves that perhaps I hadn’t researched hard enough, that I had been too hasty, that they wouldn’t be everything I wanted. I need not have worried at all, when Lex sent us her “preview” two days after the wedding I couldn’t believe how magical the shots were. They captured everything we could have wanted. Six months later my mum is still obsessively showing them to everyone she sees. On top of the work itself, Lex was professional, friendly, easy to communicate with and just the right amount of bossy with difficult family members!! I would recommend her in a heartbeat.“Lucy & James via Google Reviews
