Civil Partnership Photography – Islington Town Hall

Civil Partnership Photography // Richard & Tom

Islington Town Hall is a popular choice for couples marrying in London, with a beautiful ceiling, dark wood panelled walls and red velvet seats; it is all rather grand. Richard and Tom chose to hold their civil partnership ceremony there in the spring of 2012, and held their reception at 6 St Chad’s Place just around the corner. I have had a drink at 6 St Chad’s Place before, but had no idea that they also did weddings. It is quirky, original and intimate, and makes a fantastic venue for a wedding reception. The day started  at Camino for coffee and churros, followed by a trip to the florist, setting up of the reception venue and then on to the pub. After a quick pit stop for a pint, the guys boarded their Routemaster and headed off to Islington to meet with family and friends in The Vineyard, which is handily right across the road from the town hall. After a beautiful ceremony, everyone piled onto the bus and headed off to 6 St Chad’s Place. The temperamental weather had settled down, so champagne glasses clinked and laughter echoed on the back streets of Kings Cross, until it was time for dinner and speeches. Richard and Tom had paid so much attention to the tiny details; the room looked beautiful and very spring-like, with vases of white hydrangeas and roses and bright green apples as place settings. They also had a silhouette artist during the day, a caricaturist during the evening, and beautiful music all day courtesy of the talented Jamie McGuire. After a slow first dance, the dance floor exploded as the DJ played to a more than up for it crowd. Some favourites from Richard and Tom’s civil partnership can be seen below.

    Wow. Some of the best shots I’ve seen. Unbelievably sharp and bright, but great composition too. And that’s even the ones without me in! 🙂 I bet they are smitten.
