Shakespeare's Globe + Swan Pub Wedding - London: Sally + Simon
Sally + Simon - Well, I don't really know how to start the blog for this one because in some ways there's so much I want to say about it, and in other I want the photos to show you themselves...
Every time I look at this wedding, it brings back the butterflies I knew these guys were feeling, and I can hear the laughter that echoed throughout the whole day. I know that sounds cheesy, because every wedding is full of love and laughter and is amazing - but this one. This one...
If there were ever two people to keep you laughing through the good times and the bad it would be this pair for sure. You can totally see where Sally gets her infectious smile and laugh from by looking at her dad - and the joy and closeness of the families here was totally palpable and absorbing to capture.
Sally and Simon got married in March at The Swan at Shakespeare's Globe in London. As Sally works in the theatre, she had the best opportunity for scoping the place out as a venue, and with the couple living in Greenwich and both growing up in London, they wanted somewhere in the city that they felt could reflect themselves. This had some sweet benefits when it came to taking photos as well, as we were able to scamper through back corridors and sneak a shot on The Globe stage itself!
Sally's dress was made by a clever and talented dressmaker friend, and she had an ace team for hair and make-up from her contacts working at The Globe (it pays to be working in costume department for a theatre you know!).
The decor and colours in the wedding were golds, blush pinks, and minty greens - with board game themed table centres and a homemade Monopoly board seating plan - the detail gone to pull all the little bits together was awesome! Make sure you look out for the Owl and The Pussy Cat cake too!
This ace pair kept me on my toes throughout the day with all happy tears, all the laughs and all the love and joy you'd expect from an epic day.
