A Greenwich Wedding and a Dulwich Wedding rolled into one! The wich’s of South London! This couple organised every last detail hence an amazing day for them and their guests. Above all they both looked fantastic and what a lovely couple they were too. The day kicked off with brides preparations at the very swanky Double Tree Hilton in Greenwich. Rather a chilled atmosphere as the girls sipped Champagne with mum in matching gowns. Once hair and make-up was complete they slipped into their dresses. The bride looked absolutely stunning. Next stop church.
The ceremony was held at St Stephens church in Dulwich. The only part of the day that wasn’t a Greenwich wedding. Maybe fitting since the couple lived nearby. I love St Stephens. It’s a beautiful church situated on top of Sydenham Hill. It was designed by Charles Barry Jr and famously painted by the French impressionist painter Camille Pissaro in 1870. And what a beautiful ceremony it was. Straight afterwards the guests sprayed the couple with confetti before heading off for the next part of their wedding day.
So off they went in a Black London Taxi cab and an iconic Routemaster double decker bus. Final destination the Queens House in Greenwich. Party time and finally a Greenwich wedding. Probably the Queens House is one of my favourite wedding venues. It’s a beautiful building with lots of history. I especially love the views North to Canary Wharf framed by the Naval college. By contrast the view south is across the Royal Greenwich Park and up the hill towards the Royal Observatory. Big skies all around and a fitting venue for a Greenwich wedding. Guests were greeted with Champagne and canapés outside the Orangery. A small pause for family group photo’s then the wedding breakfast and party time!
