First Look and Wedding at Hackney Town Hall & The Tab

Happy new year! Last year was a whirlwind of love and laughter and, after a restful Christmas break, I'm excited for all the weddings I get to be a part of in 2018. Today I'm sharing one of the most fun weddings of 2017. Alicia and Raf had their 'first look' and couple portraits in Shoreditch.

If you haven't got long between your wedding ceremony and reception, one option is to have a 'first look' before the ceremony. I'll capture your first reactions to seeing each other and we can do your couple portraits... so I won't need to take you away from your guests later on!

They then joined loved ones at Hackney Town Hall for a touching ceremony, which included the cutest speech I've ever witnessed – by Alicia's sister and little nephew.

This was the second time I've shot at The Tab, a venue that donates all its profits to local community projects like a drop-in canteen for homeless people and a cooking school for disadvantaged children.
