08 Aug Burgh House Wedding & 6 St. Chad’s Place
Burgh House Wedding // Julina & Drew
Julina and Drew’s Burgh House wedding took place in two locations and most of the guests had travelled half way across the world to join them for it. The day began in King’s Cross at the Megaro hotel with hair and makeup, before Julina took a short walk over to the ultra majestic Renaissance Hotel where Drew saw his bride for the first time and they had some portraits taken together; the hotel is incredibly grand and provided an amazing backdrop. We then taxied up to Hampstead to pretty Burgh House where the ceremony was taking place. Even though the couple had opted to see each other and spend time together before the ceremony, they went back to tradition for the ceremony, and Drew waited at the top of the aisle for his bride who was walked down it by her mum, Lisa. Afterwards, everyone enjoyed fizz and canapés in the sunny courtyard before taking a Routemaster through the streets of North London. Probably the most raucous bus journey I have been on for a wedding; pole dancing and Australian karaoke classics being belted out….a LOT of fun! We arrived at one of my favourite London wedding venues, the brilliant 6 St. Chad’s Place. Tucked down a side street a stone’s throw from kings Cross this fab little venue is very versatile, has tons of natural light, and looks equally brilliant for a winter wedding as it does a summer wedding. There were some cute decorative touches, mostly referencing New York where the couple had lived, and the colour theme was zesty orange, yellow and purple. There was no seating plan for dinner, and guests were encouraged to sit where they liked. The evening continued with speeches and anyone who wanted to get up and give a message to the couple was encouraged to do so, whilst the wine flowed freely.
