Jackson & Co Photography | Wiltons Music Hall Wedding Photography
Ok, so we’ve been here before. This is our second time as a Wiltons Music Hall Wedding Photographer and I say this quietly and under my breath: I think I love it even more than I remembered.
We were here a couple of years ago for Amy & Jim’s stellar wedding day and were totally bowled over by this incredible hidden gem nestled in amongst the backstreets of East London. It had charm, it had character, it had wonderful staff and drool-worthy catering. Above all: it had incredible light. Light that photographers dreams are made of.
So when the chance came up to come back for Alice & Alistairs day, well I could barely keep the smile off my face in the days running up to it. It was everything we remembered and more. We got to explore more nooks and crannies, we wedged ourselves into different little cubby holes to get a fresh angle on things to last time and give a fresh, unique take on the same venue.
When you’ve got a sensational venue it’s great, obviously. When you pair that with an out of this world bride and groom then really, you’ve won the photographic lottery! Alice & Alistair couldn’t have made us feel more at home or trusted us more to move in amongst their crowd of friends and loved ones doing what we do with absolutely no fussing. From Alice’s mega-wedding trainers, to the final crescendo of New York, New York booming around the old Music Hall we just had an incredible time and were left smiling at every little touch through the day.
We gently steered them into the light we wanted when it came to portraits but otherwise, we were totally hands-off all day and let the day play out unscripted picking off frames as we saw them. Like all of our favourite couples, these guys did it their own way, including dispensing with a First Dance in favour of a First Song with Alice taking to the stage to blow everyone away before the party swayed and swished for the rest of the night. It was so much fun and such a cool way for us to kick off 2019!
I don’t think we’ll ever stop loving Wiltons Music Hall, it’s Londons best-kept secret as far as wedding venue goes with more charm and authenticity than most wedding venues could wave a stick at. Here’s a little taste of their day…
