Hugo and Elly. A London wedding set in the heart of Shoreditch, but with kilts!
Hugo & Elly

If you’re reading this looking for a seaside wedding venue I can’t recommend an East Quay wedding in Whitstable enough. Chloe and Alex’s wedding was an absolute delight to shoot at.

Having apparently trawled through numerous photography websites I was delighted Chloe & Alex contacted me having found me on twitter ( After an initial meeting everything was booked up.

With April famous for its showers, we somehow managed to luck out with the weather, the clouds parted and we were set to have the hottest day of the year.

I met Chloe first thing at a lovely converted artist studio not far from the seafront, a place she’d rented for the weekend. The open plan space was filled with cool, quirky features and was beautifully lit, and the open staircase provided the perfect frame for a shot of Chloe’s Louboutins and of her amazing Charlie Brear dress.

I met Alex later in the morning at a pub in Whistable where he was meeting the best man and ushers.

…We were so happy when we got the photos back and haven’t stopped looking at them since, the best day of our lives captured so beautifully.

The service stood out for a number of reasons. Firstly, Alex’s reaction seeing Chloe for the first time was priceless, his chin almost dropped to the floor with delight. Secondly, I loved the guests reactions as they slowly worked out that one of the readings was actually the Baywatch theme tune. And thirdly, I have never witnessed a ceremony with so much laughter throughout. This set the mood for whole day!

Drinking, laughter, Oysters, more laughter followed as the wedding party soaked up the first evening that truly felt like summer. A live rock band kicked off the evening entertainment and I’m told that after I left at 11pm that the dancing carried on in to the small hours.

This wedding was featured recently in Rock My Wedding which both Chloe & Alex and myself were delighted with.
