Shelby from Shelby Ellis Photography captured Imogen and Gareths unique celebration! Here, she tells their story …
I first met Imogen and Gareth nearly 2 years ago at their initial consultation. After hearing all about their Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding plans, I was so excited when they booked! It was a long wait, but their engagement session finally came around in May (See those photos here.) Their engagement shoot made me even more excited for their big day!
The 17th June started with Imogen at her parents’ house in bridal preparations with her bridesmaids. Once made-up, Imogen stepped into her absolutely stunning Charlotte Balbier separates which I loved as it’s something different to the usual “wedding dress!” She even had a sparkling change of top piece for the evening’s party.
Imogen and Gareth wed in a lovely Catholic ceremony at their local church. Afterwards, all the guests piled on to two classic Routemaster buses to take them to the reception venue: Trinity Buoy Wharf. What a fantastic venue! So unique, with its own lighthouse and the most incredible views of the city! The whole wedding had a London theme, with landmarks featuring as the centrepieces and on the table plan (beautifully illustrated by one of the bridesmaids), as well as personalised Underground-style place names for every guest.
It is hard to pick my favourite moment of this Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding, but I really loved the couple portraits. These were particularly special as we got to use the lighthouse! It was SO difficult to narrow down my selection of images for this blog post but I’ve tried my best!
