Ritzy Cinema Brixton Wedding // Laura & Max
London is full of unique wedding venues, and none more so than the stage in Screen 1 at Brixton’s Ritzy Cinema. This was the setting for Laura and Max’s wedding on a hot Saturday in June last year. The day was incredibly chilled out and was representative of them as a couple; I am a big fan of couples doing things their way when it comes to their wedding day. There was popcorn for the ceremony (naturally), a wonderful short film of photos of the two of them together over the years, and a montage of famous football goal celebrations as they were announced husband and wife (a nod to their shared love of the beautiful game). The ceremony finished with a group singalong to ‘Bring Me Sunshine’; just brilliant.
A drinks reception took place on the rooftop, with nibbles by Elvira’s Secret Pantry, before it was time to take some Routemasters down to Stanley Halls in West Norwood. This Edwardian Arts venue is a great space for a relaxed wedding reception; long tables and a red velvet curtained stage perfect for speeches. Dinner was antipasti and delicious woodfired pizzas provided by the Pizza Project. The evening party kicked off with some musical wizardry by the excellent Disco Freaks. Some parties you just don’t want to leave, and this was one of them.
The last mention must go to Laura’s black velvet jumpsuit. More brides with this much originality and sass, please!
