Islington Metalworks Wedding
A super funky and colourful Islington Metalworks Wedding for Kate & Chris
Islington Metalworks Wedding// I absolutely adored this Islington Metalworks Wedding. It’s a wedding venue that I had wanted to shoot at for a long time and it didn’t disappoint. It is such a cool, enclosed space in the heart of London. I love a bit of grit so yep a big thumbs up from me.
Kate looked awesome in a simple long sleeved t shirt and skirt by Fairy Gothmother. I loved her knitted shawl that her mum had made her too – she really did look so unique. Kate was just effortlessly chic and definitely had a vibe of SJP.
The couple decided to inject a lot of colour into their day with hanging paper pom poms, the flowers they selected and the characters they invited along. It was one of those days where my face hurt from smiling so much by the end of it! Special mention must go to the cake table – I mean come on! How cool! And props to their friend who desite not being a cake maker rustled up their GBBO showstopper of a cake.
Music was provided by Storm Band who were ace.
All in all a 10/10 kinda day, can we do it again please?!
ABOUT ISLINGTON METALWORKS WEDDING VENUE
Nestled at the back of Angel station, The Islington Metalworks is a completely unique venue, steeped in history. Built in the late 19th Century, all three floors were initially used to stable the horses that pulled the trams for London Transport. In 1925 it was converted into a metal works. This element of the business is still running successfully today. Much of the building has now been restored, creating a number of inspiring spaces.
Islington Metal Works is my idea of a photographers dream – we’re not talking Disney Princessy dreams here – we’re talking the juxtaposition of a wedding in a unique, industrial setting. The building itself has loads going on but the surrounding streets are awesome too. Special mention to the staff too who were awesome.
Home consists of my husband and our two children. I met my husband at work and we got married in 2012 at The Electric Cinema in Birmingham. It was an intimate affair that suited us down to the ground. I am all for saying knickers to tradition!
I photographed my first ever wedding in 2007 and have now shot almost 200 weddings. I love my job dearly it brings me so much joy!
