A London Warehouse Wedding: Maxine & Alan

‚ÄčA very local affair for me today - it’s the wonderfully creative London wedding of Maxine & Alan. We have blue skies but a biting icy wind and there’s a real feel of excitement and anticipation in the air, with Christmas only a few days away. Plus we are in Greenwich which always feels that bit more Christmassy than the rest of London with all it’s Dickensian charm. We meet  Maxine and her family at the delightful boutique B&B Number 16, getting ready amongst the charming floral wallpaper and quirky object d’art. Then it’s a wander across the cobbles to the magical candlelit ceremony in one of London’s most historic churches, St Alfege’s. Carols and hot spiced rum make it feel wonderfully festive and I can’t help grinning behind my Contax - I do love a good Christmas wedding. One Friendly Place, just down the road in Deptford, is where the party takes place. It’s an old spice warehouse built in the 1930’s and is the definition of industrial chic. It’s filled with awesome furniture, has a wonderful roof terrace and despite having three huge spaces for dancing, dining and drinks, it feels cosy and comfortable. Maxine and Alan have thought about every element of this party - planning and decorating every inch of the place so it feels really special. The family got involved too; Maxine’s aunt made her wedding dress from the most delicate vintage lace and her sister baked and decorated the silver bird cake. There’s a ceilidh when guests arrive, miniature home-made spirits as favors and some impromptu singing round the piano after dinner. It really is the perfect winter party. Congratulations you two, what an epic party! Here’s how it all looked.
