The Rosendale Pub in West Dulwich is a rather good pub for a Wedding. Actually, that’s not strictly accurate. The Rosendale Pub is an amazing venue for a Wedding! It’s a beautiful pub with heaps of space and fantastic staff. Every time I’ve photographed a wedding here it’s always been incredible fun.
On this particular day I photographed the Wedding of Ailish and Luis. Due to them both working overseas they had to make several trips back and forth to get everything right. I can tell you now that they definitely succeeded. Great entertainment with the Magician Alan Hudson, superb food, great music. Naturally being a pub the alcohol flowed all night. The Rosendale Pub staff worked really hard to make everything perfect. The room and tables were decorated beautifully. The food was top notch and everything served with a smile. Being a summer wedding and a beautiful day meant the party could begin everything outside. They had a lovely private area in the garden decorated with bunting, plenty of seating and their own bar. Delicious nibbles flowed through out and all you could hear was laughter and more laughter.
What really made this day special were their friends and family. There were several moments throughout the day that really moved me. Such a warm, open and tightly knit group of people you’ll ever find. You could totally feel the love from everyone. They were more like family than just friends that had grown up together. From the first moment the day had a fantastic atmosphere and once the tables were cleared and the cake cut this celebration had P-A-R-T-Y stamped all over it.
In addition to the pub garden there’s loads of space upstairs for guests including a separate bar that adjoins the main function room. Hence a great place for a party and totally separate from the public areas of the pub.
As a result I’ll remember this wedding for years to come. Fantastic couple, incredible gathering and just the most fun. Wish you both endless years of happiness – XOX
