Two of the sweetest people you are ever likely to meet had their wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral. It was amazing. Come have a look.
Ceremony: St Pauls Cathedral, OBE Chapel, London
Reception: The Athenaeum Club, Pall Mall, London
There are weddings where everything is simply amazing. The couple, the guests, the venues, the weather and the vendors. Every single one of these things occurred at Alison and Craig’s day.
Starting in the morning at The Athenaeum Club, Alison looked absolutely stunning in her Maggie Sottero wedding dress, while her beautiful bridesmaids donned their own attire created by Alison’s extremely talented mother. Alison is such a sweet natured and kind person and it was such a joy to see her smiling through the morning (and throughout the day – obviously). Helping the bride out in the morning were Katy Angelidi and Cassandra Rizzuto who were so lovely on make up and hair – pleasure to work with you.
Over on the groom’s side we were almost treated to a veritable comedy routine from Craig who is just one of the funniest people you are likely to come across, as well as a really really really nice guy. I have to admit that it was a bit cramped in the hotel room, and I was a bit envious of the massive room the ladies had in their preparation – but it did make you think outside of the box in being creative with the available space – and I do enjoy a challenge. With us through the day were the lovely Earthy Photography. We have been trying to work together for a few years now, so it was great to finally have the opportunity to see them in action. Mark and Marianne are two lovely people and we hope to work together again soon.
With prep done, we were off to the wedding at St. Paul’s Cathedral – what a magnificent place. Only certain people are lucky enough to be married there and as Alison’s father is an OBE, that was their golden ticket. Speaking of Alison’s parents, they performed the best rendition of ‘The Lord bless you and keep you’ that I have ever heard – the hairs on the back of our necks stood right up.
The reception was now in full party mood and what better way to end the celebrations with a Ceilidh performed by the wonderful The Ceilidh Factor – a band so good that Andrea and I joined in at the end.
Such a wonderful wedding.
