Mel and Gareth
St. Stephens, Hampstead, London
Mel and Gareth had their wedding and reception at St Stephens in Hampstead. This was one of the most fun and relaxed weddings I’ve ever had the privileged to photograph, and Mel and Gareth were an absolute joy to work for. The couple wanted to go for a vintage glamour wedding in London – and on a budget. Something they managed absolutely beautifully.
St. Stephens is around the corner from where the couple met, and as you can see from the photos proved to be a stunning venue for the wedding and reception. A remarkable, newly restored Grade I listed building it has recently open to the community (and for weddings) for the first time in 30 years.
The rain threatened to fall a few times in the morning but as with many of my weddings this year after a little bit of coaxing the sun came out and ruled the day! Couple portraits were taken on Hampstead Heath where I shot the couples engagement session earlier in the year.
