Alyssa and Simon’s Stoke Newington Town Hall wedding, with lunch at Bistrotheque and an after party at Wahaca!
After having the absolute pleasure of travelling to Switzerland to take Simon and Alyssa’s Swiss Alps engagement photos, I was really, really looking forward to their London wedding. They’d planned an intimate day with their closest family members and friends.
Alyssa is from the US and Simon is from the UK and they met in Switzerland, where they both now live. They decided to have a destination wedding in London and their guests travelled from all over the world to celebrate with them.
A wedding ceremony at Stoke Newington Town Hall
We started the day in East London and Alyssa got ready in Stoke Newington, while Simon got ready at The Town Hall Hotel in Bethnal Green. Their ceremony took place at beautiful Stoke Newington Town hall and then the fun began! It was absolutely lovely to be included as a guest for all of the celebrations.
A London bus tour with stops at some of the capital’s landmarks
After drinks at the pub we headed to Bistrotheque in Hackney, where guests mingled and ate oysters before sitting down for lunch. I whisked Simon and Alyssa away for a few urban portraits, before we all jumped back on their Routemaster bus to give their guests a tour of some of London’s most famous landmarks.
We stopped at St Paul’s and the Millennium Bridge for a few more portraits and then we jumped back on the bus and headed to Wahaca in Soho, where everyone enjoyed more drinks and Mexican food. I love Wahaca and I absolutely loved Simon and Alyssa’s decision to end the night there.

All in all this was a super lovely, laid back London day and I loved working with Simon and Alyssa as their wedding photographer. As well as including me in the day as a guest, they showed absolutely amazing hospitality when I went to visit them in Switzerland (including taking me for the most amazing fondue!). It was an absolute pleasure working with them.
