Duke’s Head Wedding, Putney {Jennie & Scott}

Dukes Head Wedding riverfront | Putney Wedding South London


I absolutely adore these two! First off, when Jennie first contacted me about photographing her wedding to Scott at The Dukes Head wedding venue pub in Putney, she was incredibly excited about every single thing, and every email she sent me between then and the wedding day (and since) was just bubbling over with enthusiasm. I’m always super excited about weddings, but Jennie’s excitement was just infectious! She and Scott have been together since high school – over half their lives, as they pointed out in their speeches – so their wedding day was about celebrating that love and commitment in true “Scott and Jennie” fashion. So Scott wore jeans and a jacket, while Jennie (aka the craft queen) went to town with pink dye and glitter! She bought a plain white dress and dip-dyed it pink and sparkled it up; she made the sparkly heart belt to go with it, as well as her cat-ear headdress (atop her kickass pink mohawk!) and all the paper bouquets! The girls got a pink taxi to the venue, and then following the ceremony Scott and Jennie did TWO confetti exits – one for flowers and one for bubbles! Confetti is my favourite thing at a wedding (well, one of them), so this was made for me!

After some strolling up and down the Putney riverfront – which fortunately was dry; the following weekend I was in the area and the entire street was caked with mud! – for photos (thanks for giving me time to get so many lovely ones, you guys), we went back to the Duke’s Head pub for a “help yourself” dinner in  the downstairs bar – all very chilled out and relaxed, just like Scott and Jennie. I don’t think I’ve met a less stressed bride ever – Jennie, you’re awesome! Plus we bonded over our mermaid leg tattoos 🙂

Oh and of course, Jennie also made the caketopper figurines of herself and Scott – so cute!

Thanks to my partner in crime, my second shooter Heline Bekker!

South London Wedding Photography – London Pub Wedding at the Butcher’s Hook & Cleaver {Beth & Geoff}

East London Pub wedding

London Pub Wedding

Beth and Geoff were married last Saturday in a lovely, laidback, family-orientated London pub wedding, with the emphasis on fun! I started the day at Beth’s house, where a remarkably calm Beth was having her hair and makeup done while family and friends popped in and out, and then it was onto The Camberwell Arms pub, where Geoff and most of the guests were having a few drinks before the ceremony – also very chilled out and stress-free!

After that we all walked down the street to the Southwark Registry office for the ceremony, and then finally it was onto a routemaster bus to take everybody to The Butcher’s Hook & Cleaver in Smithfield near the Barbican, for the meal and PARTY. The rain also held off beautifully until we were all inside – thanks, weather!

Things I need to mention: Beth and Geoff are just the sweetest, no fuss, no stress, just happy to be in love couple! Their tiny daughter Thea and the rest of their family are clearly so important to them, and they just loved having everyone together to celebrate their wedding! I totally felt the love; I might have mentioned before (a few hundred times) that feeling the love at weddings is why I do this job. I  got more than a little teary when Geoff referred to Beth in his speech as “heart-burstingly wonderful”. It might have been heart-burstingly amazing, or incredible, or beautiful; I don’t remember, and they’re all true anyway. But it was the loveliness of “heart-burstingly” that got me right in the feels. Well done, Geoff.

And well done both of you for finding each other and being so lovely together. Thank you for having me along to capture your love!

Oh and special shoutout to The Butcher’s Hook & Cleaver for feeding me the most delicious lamb pie and mash – I’m not surprised your food is award-winning! I’m definitely going back there!
