This beautiful last minute wedding from Recommended Supplier, Joasis Photography, is just what you need today. Samuel & Daniel finally said their I-do’s after two previous attempts (thank you COVID), and we’re so pleased they did. From planning a wedding for 100 people, to standing in the street eating gluten-free fish & chips, this beautiful couple weren’t letting anything stand in their way of walking down that aisle. Can we also take a moment to appreciate the suits? So stylish and sleek! There’s nothing quite like an intimate wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall - the perfect setting for a perfect day! 

Last minute wedding at the Old Marylebone Town Hall for gay couple

We felt incredibly lucky to have been able to proceed with our plans in December, especially given that London entered Tier 4 only two days later. It wasn’t how we thought we’d get married. But, it turned out to be all the more unforgettable because of the journey we had to take to get there.

The day was very laid back, with us meeting Jo at St Pancras before heading to Marylebone. All the restrictions meant that street photography was a winner, and the rain wouldn’t dampen our spirits. In fact, one of our favourite photos is us under the umbrella with the shimmering puddled ground. The wedding itself was super intimate, with very limited guest numbers and went by in a flash. The venue provided the perfect setting. It felt contemporary, but is filled with character and reflected the urban element of the city.


We both agree that, without Jo, we aren’t sure it would have been the same. Everyone says wedding days are a blur for the couple. Even for us, with such a stripped back day and with so few guests, having Jo capture all those memories truly made a difference. So, if anybody is planning a micro wedding, don’t forget to book a photographer (we can recommend an incredible one)… they are invaluable. Plus, you’re paying them to make you look good, and who wouldn’t want that?!

Having gone from planning a wedding for 100 people to a wedding with only 6 guests, we’d recommend that if things start to get out of hand and your budget is beginning to spiral out of control, remember why you wanted to get married and what’s actually important. It can be too easy to be swayed by family and friends, or lavish photos online to go bigger than you need. Cover the essentials, think about whether you’d still be happy if you didn’t have something, and if yes… do you need it at all?
