This intimate London affair made me realise just how quickly two perfect strangers can become your friends. I had a beautiful day at Lynda & Blair’s Maida Vale wedding, starting off in Paddington, listening to The XX in the car on the way to the ceremony with the girls, a colourful canal boat ride to Little Venice and a very crafty reception at the bright and beautiful Summerhouse. It rained & shone all day long and everyone pulled together for a little adventure. It was truly a treat.

Adrian Benn, the gregarious guitarist, provided the music…

I am always so grateful to share days like these with such lovely individuals. Lynda & Blair, you really are very fantastic which is why I cried my way through most of your wedding. I promise they were happy tears though, so thank you again for having me.

Dress: Jenny Packham // Venue: The Summerhouse, Maida Vale // Guitarist: The Amazing Adrian Benn // Planner: Rebecca at Harlequin & Romance // All the pretty little details: Little Paper Head.

Up next is a Little Venice engagement session, seeing as we’re over this side of town and we’ll see if we can squeeze in a couple more weddings before the year is out too.

  • Considering how miserable it is outside, these images are an absolute antidote to the weather. This is an absolutely beautiful wedding! LOVE-LOVE-LOVE!
