Grab a cup of coffee and get comfortable, guys – this is a long blog post, and I make no apologies for that! Sarah and Dwayne were married last September, at Islington Town Hall on the most perfect day. I wish more people would get married in September, as the light can be just astonishing. Low sun, but it’s a reasonably long day still, and not as harsh as June and July! After the service it was a very short walk across the road to the Dead Dolls House, where the reception took place.
Sarah and her bride-gang got ready at an Airbnb house in Islington. Sarah’s crushed silk outfit was incredible, and her mum made the top! I loved her gold nail varnish, and her striking violet pink lipstick. She looked so beautiful. Dwayne and Sarah make such a great couple, full of laughter and support for each other.

As we were gathering outside the house to head off to the Town Hall, we realised that the door to the house had accidentally locked itself, and some of the bride-gang hadn’t retrieved their belongings. Cue the amazing bridesmaid who immediately whipped off her shoes, and shimmied up and through the ground floor window to let us back in. That says it all you need to know about Sarah, and the people she is friends with. They are ACE. 😉
After the vows, the whole wedding party sang “Hey Jude”. I’d never seen anything like it before, and now I wish ALL my couples would do this. Some wedding ceremonies can so serious and solemn, and for this couple, that just wouldn’t have felt right. Singing a Beatles song broke the ice, and the wedding nerves, and made everyone instantly feel like partying.
