Inspiration

"We found inspiration and our lovely Photographer through RMW." We are just thrilled Hannah and Laurence found their fabulous photographer, Remain In Light, by scrolling through Rock My Wedding and how fitting to now feature their wedding. This bike loving couple had a civil ceremony at Stoke Newington Town Hall followed by a reception at The West Reservoir Centre. Stopping off at their local for a drink on the way, so cool. I am sure you will agree that Hannah looks gorgeous in her Maggie Sottero wedding dress, paired with white Doc Martens and blue socks for her something blue.

Venue, The West Reservoir Centre, Stoke Newington.

Hannah & Laurence: We live on the West Reservoir and swim there regularly. It was one of these occasions that we had noticed it being set up as a wedding venue, The West Reservoir Centre. We were totally sold, not only does it look at our home, it was the first place we looked with a wedding in mind and felt so right. We stayed in our own home the night of the wedding.

We found Mairead through RMW when looking at what others had done for their weddings at the venue of our choice. We loved the style of her photos and after talking on the phone it was obvious that she was the right decision. Our pre-shoot was on Parliament Hill and we couldn’t believe how you could take such beautifully lit photos at dusk. A big tick for our winter wedding.

DIY Flower Arrangements. 

Hannah bought directly from the New Covent Garden Market and arranged them with her bridesmaids. In order to keep this to budget, she went on a flower course to learn how to arrange bouquets. She chose to do lots of small arrangements along the tables to keep it simple and make it easier. Mairead, The Photographer: A lot of the wedding was DIY - the flowers, the bar, the cake topper etc, Hannah and Laurence are both scientists, and Hannah was completing her PhD at the time (something to do with fish!) which they referenced on some of the wedding favour mini bottles!
