YORK HOUSE wedding photography | ELLE + CHARLIE

36 wedding couple portraits York House Kingston.jpg

Elle and Charlie tied the knot at their intimate York House Wedding London on pretty much the hottest day of this year. Elle looked an absolute dream in Ghost (one of my favourite wedding dress designers - I adore the bias cut and silky fabric, and the silhouette is always flattering), and her bridesmaids looked perfectly fresh all day, in individual bridesmaids dresses in cornflower blue. All their elegant and natural wildflower bouquets were created by the talented Becks Flowers.

York House is a fairly new wedding venue, an addition in lieu of Richmond Town Hall,  and is situated in a divine location on River Thames, with beautiful gardens, and even though it was baking hot on the day, it still felt cool, breezy and utterly laid back.

Elle and Charlie were so wonderfully ecstatic and loved up enjoying the day with close friends and family, and Elle and her dad had some of the most touching father and daughter moments I've witnessed (scroll down to see what I mean!) Their wedding breakfast and reception was held The Wharf restaurant on the Thames at Teddington Lock. It is a very light and airy venue right on the river - perfect for hot mid-summer wedding days!  Take a peek at Elle and Charlie's Richmond engagement session!


“Only one girl has ever really wrapped my stomach into pretzels.She didn’t give me butterflies.She gave me pterodactyls.I’m talking terrible internal bruising and the first time I kissed her was like the first time I saw fireworks,which was like the sky first kissing me in the eyeballs.” – Watsky
