        My 2023 summer wedding season started off with an absolute BANG at Danielle & Greg's wedding party. I say party, because this was one of the most fun weddings I've photographed. 

        This gorgeous late May wedding began with some champagne swigging and frolicking in the empty streets of London. You'll find that empty street frolicking is a recurring theme in this wedding album. We have a cycling race to thank for the blocked off roads! The videographer, Mathew Everard, and I had a ton of fun making the most of these empty streets. 

        The ceremony took place at one of my favorite London venues: The Old Marylebone Town Hall. An absolute classic for chic town hall weddings. This was the third wedding I've done here, and it's just as fabulous every time. Something about the wood panelled rooms and white exterior just photograph so beautifully.

        After the ceremony, Danielle and Greg transported their guests back to the reception by non other than a classic London red bus. Champagne. toasts on the way really set the tone for what would turn into the most wild and fun party I've ever photographed. 

        Our home for the evening was the Lamb Tavern in the beautiful Leadenhall Market. Fun fact Leadenhall Market provided the setting for the iconic Leaky Cauldron in Harry Potter, as well as being the inspiration for Diagon Alley. 

       After dinner, the guests spilled out onto the cobblestones of the market to mingle under the gilded rooft, before continuing the party downstairs in Tom's underground bar.
