Welcome to the Crypt


Liza and Jeremy married at St Etheldreda's church which is tucked away in a small gated street near Holborn Viaduct called Ely Place.

They both got ready for their big day in nearby hotels; Jeremy in Malmaison and Liza in The Rookery.

Liza's dress which had a very subtle pink tone to it came from Mirror Mirror Couture in Islington.

Unusually the reception was held underneath the church in the appropriately named 'Crypt', the food was prepared by the chefs from the nearby Bleeding Heart restaurant although Savoir Design were responsible for the tower of cakes!.

The candlelit tables complimented the autumnal atmosphere and the room was decorated with flower arrangements created by Jades Flower Design who also supplied Liza's striking bouquet of red roses and pink.. er, pretty flowers...

Mr & Mrs Salisbury have now left to start a 3 week honeymoon in Rajasthan.

Weekend in Cornwall


This weekend I was lucky enough to be photographing a wedding in Cornwall.

Jo and Ray live in Surrey but Jo's family are dairy farmers based in Delabole near Camelford and it was in that area that the couple decided to marry.

Jo and her bridesmaids got ready at the family home whilst outside the Bradley Dairy carried on as usual.

The marriage ceremony was held at the parish church in St Teath which, according to the road sign, won Radio Cornwall's 'Most Caring Village' award in 2006. And, as if to emphasise the point, many of the villagers turned out to see the arrival of the bride.

After the ceremony we had a half hour drive to the reception venue, the beautiful Bedruthen Steps hotel near Newquay. Before we got there however I had the opportunity to get some shots of the of Ray and Jo on the nearby beach.

The wedding breakfast including a sweet served with a generous scoop of Clotted Cream from the Bradley Dairy.

The newlyweds will shortly be departing on an extended honeymoon, taking in the Maldives, China and Australia, not returning until Christmas!
