You might remember Saleema & David’s engagement session in Vienna, which was so much fun. Well, the wait is finally over as the couple tied the knot in London at the start of June. Actually, they had not just one, but two weddings! First they had a Ghanaian wedding in May to honour Saleemas roots, followed by this quintessentially English afternoon tea party wedding, which I was lucky enough to capture.
Working in fashion, I knew that Saleema would look nothing short of super stylish on her big day, but her glamorous look still managed to blow me away! How about that gorgeous Temperley gown and the most utterly beautiful Louboutins I’ve ever seen! Swoon. Stunning flowers by the Blue Dove Wedding Company completed the beautiful vision.
Saleema and the girls got ready at the super trendy Shoreditch House (how cool is a private member’s club with a ‘no tie’ policy by the way?), from where we headed to Islington Town Hall for the ceremony. One of the most memorable moments of the day was when, after the ceremony, everyone joined in on a sing-along to ‘It had to be You‘. Uh-mazing.
After the ceremony it was onto a routemaster for a short drive to Farringdon and the Crypt on the Green, where the cutest tea party had been set by Louise from Bow Occasions and was catered Capital People.
Despite the skies opening up and major thunder sweeping over London just when I headed out to this wedding, all my memories of the day are sunny and bright. Happiness trumps weather every time.
Congratulations Saleema & David, I’m so so happy for you! And thank you for having us. x
