This was such a fun wedding for me as I remembered Anna and Paul (and the other guests) so well from Kati and Dave’s wedding back in 2014. I especially remembered Anna’s dance moves which I am pleased to say I saw again on the very enthusiastic dance floor!
The ceremony was held at the Union Chapel, not just a wonderfully inclusive church with a sense of humour , but also a great gig venue and they do excellent work with the homeless.
They allowed Anna and Paul to choose some ‘hymns’ that made everyone smile – Hank Williams’ Hey Good Lookin’, Madness’ It Must Be Love, Bill Withers’ Lovely Day and the song from the Pixar short film Lava!
After the ceremony we headed off to the pub for a few drinks before heading onto the Stoke Newington West Reservoir Centre for the lovely views over the water, food, drink and merriment.
The speeches had the room in fits of giggles, I can’t really share any of it though, not in polite company anyway!
Last year I had some rather unique first dance songs, and this wedding was no exception. It was brought to you by the Flight of the Conchords and their song The Most Beautiful Girl (In The Room).
At the end of this post you’ll find a special compilation of pictures, the thumbs up of Nick, and his bottom which Laurel (who actually made Anna’s dress!) consensually grabbed. He has a keen eye and spotted my sneaky ways early on in the day. I will see Nick again soon at his brother’s wedding this summer, so I hope to bring you more from Nick and his thumb later in the year.
