Claire and Sam
Islington Town Hall Wedding, London.
Claire and Sam are both lawyers working in London with international backgrounds. Sam is half Australian and half New Zealander who spent much of his younger life in Rome, and Claire is half English and half New Zealander. I had the honour photographing the couple for both their wedding ceremonies. I photographed the couple’s Islington Town Hall wedding (the legal bit) and their celebration ceremony which took place on the beautiful island of Capri off the coast of Naples.
The couple wanted an informal relaxed wedding ceremony attended by close family, before the bigger party to follow in Italy. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot a few weddings at Islington Town Hall and it’s the fantastic venue for a London wedding. Located on fashionable Upper Street the Town Hall is a listed building with stunning architecture and a sweeping marble staircase. The Mayor’s Parlour where the ceremony took place has a lovely and cosy feel perfect for this intimate, relaxed ceremony.
Less than two days after this wedding I was lucky enough to be flying to Naples to catch a ferry to Capri. I was truly grateful to be given the opportunity to record both ceremonies for this lovely creative couple.
