Some people do ‘low key’ with well, such
class – well that’s Tammy and Rob who had their wedding at the end of last year at The Town Hall Hotel
in East London. With it’s classic Art Deco style combined with contemporary architecture it was the perfect backdrop for a day that was about celebrating in style. Tammy and Rob appear to have a wonderful modesty about them throughout the day, captured insightfully by documentary wedding photographer Nick Tucker
It was a fuss free stylish affair – the bride designed and made her own wedding dress – and looking through these images they capture the couple in a natural and beautiful way from the nerves, to the joy and the dancing. I do also love Nick’s coverage of the guests and seeing them immersed in the different celebrations throughout the day, always fascinating…
“We wanted to do something that was minimal and low key, but that still felt personal to us. We love the Town Hall Hotel. We stayed there after our engagement and loved it so much we decided to get married there a year and one day later.”
Tammy wore a beautiful fitted lace dress with sleeves and gorgeous button detail at the back, and not only did it look beautiful, but was designed and made by her with a very sentimental element as it was made with the lace trim from her mothers very own wedding dress. “It was nice to have part of her day in mine.”
In terms of the day, everything was fairly simple but well thought through. “We wanted it to feel natural and uncontrived. We came up with idea of putting the floral center pieces and candles on mirrors to create a bit more reflected light in the room.”
Instead of an evening buffet, they chose a cheese cake, which having seen so far this year all my couples also choose one, is clearly a popular choice – who doesn’t love a bit of cheese! “Instead of a traditional cake we opted for a “cheese” cake, which went down well with our evening guests as we didn’t have an evening buffet”
“There was only one photographer we really liked and that was Nick Tucker. He is an amazing photographer who managed to make 2 slightly awkward and camera shy people look good. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough, and he is a thoroughly nice guy too”. I can certainly vouch for that too!
What music did you walk down the aisle to? Beach Boys!
Do you have any planning advice for other brides? I wish I had taken the week prior to the wedding off work.
What was the most special or memorable moment of the day? Walking down the aisle and seeing each other, and having all our family and friends together in one room as it rarely happens.
What unique touches did you add to your wedding? We tried to make our favours as personal to us as we could, we made a little quiz booklet and had mini golf pencils embossed with the date and our names.
Congratulations to Tammy and Rob, and thanks to them and to photographer Nick for letting me share the beautiful day.
