Well if I had a fantastic day at Lucy (Goose) and Dave’s London wedding and I was working you can imagine what a great time they and their guests had!
I was particularly pleased as they fulfilled a personal wedding wish I’ve always had, to hear some Nick Cave at a wedding. In my opinion his lyrics are some of the most romantic out there (in fact he has given a lecture on The Secret Life of The Love Song) so when Lucy walked down the aisle at the Stoke Newington Town Hall to Into My Arms I was made up.
My musical delight didn’t end there, the half hour of Northern Soul at the reception really got me going, it’s lucky I can take photographs and dance at the same time!
After the beautiful ceremony we all went on a big red bus to the reception at The Peasant in Clerkenwell, a venue known for it’s wonderful food and atmosphere. All their choices suited their personalities and their guests to a T. So many interesting conversations were had, tears of joy were shed, shapes were thrown and many drinks were downed.
One particular detail made many a guest (and well perhaps myself too) well up at the wedding breakfast… the children in Lucy’s class wrote out the place names and inside the cards the 8 and 9 year olds wrote what they believed love is.
