That Alternative Red & Black Wedding Dress at Islington Town Hall
I’ve been going back through some of my older photographs and I thought I’d post this image from one of my very first weddings. I shot this in the foyer of Islington Town Hall, seconds before Alex, the bride, walked up the stairs to meet her man and get hitched. To this day I still get asked questions about Alex’s dress because it was such a bold choice for her wedding. Brides-to-be just love it, and they mention how comfortable and calm Alex looks in that dress. Back when the now top wedding blog Rock n Roll Bride was in it’s infancy, blogger Kat used to trawl the web looking for unusual weddings; she found this one in my portfolio and asked if she could feature it. Of course! I said. That was the first time my photos were published on a wedding blog. Click here to see the original feature.
Alex’s style and attitude is still holding up today in this photo. The alternative choice always ages well. It’s timeless.
