With both of their families overseas, Sophie & Jesse planned an intimate, relaxed wedding celebrating with their friends in London. After they were married in the Council Chamber at Islington Town Hall they jumped in a black cab over to Shoreditch for an outdoor feast under the grapevines in the garden of Rochelle Canteen. A true hidden gem in London, in a private walled garden with fantastic food & wine, I’ve photographed quite a few intimate celebrations here & they have all been fabulous.

Sophie looked stunning in a modern ROTATE Birger Christensen dress & Prada headband with a simple green & white bouquet by Grace & Thorn. We strolled through Islington for some relaxed couples photos, luckily dodging the rain & spotting some beautiful flowering wisteria on the pretty London terraces.

If you’re planning a similar relaxed elopement or intimate wedding in the coming months, get in touch & tell me about your plans – I’d love to hear from you.

Here are a few previews from Sophie & Jesse’s relaxed, intimate friends wedding at Islington Town Hall & Rochelle Canteen in London.
