Hayley and Dan- the Oyster shed
Hayley and Dan had their blessing celebration at the Oyster Shed, London A Stunning modern venue set in the heart of London, along side amazing views of the Thames and the Shard.
Their story started 5 years ago when they met in a pub in Southgate. Three years later they decided to marry whilst they were living in Singapore. However they still wanted to be able to celebrate with their friends and family so eventually after another couple of years they decided to have a blessing back in London. The views of London from the Oyster Shed are stunning, and they couldn't think of anywhere else they would rather be on their special day.
They had their blessing at St John the Baptist church in Enfield. Afterwards a Red London bus took everyone on a lovely ride through London to the Oyster Shed. Their London themed celebration echoed throughout the reception through the beautiful details they put so much attention into. Each table was named after a tube station and guest names were written on a Oyster card.
Hayley had tried many dresses but the one she eventually chose had been picked by her mum and bridesmaids, As soon as Hayley tried it on she knew it was the one. “When I tried it on I felt like I was in a scene from Sex and the City! ” Her dress featuring embroidered lace, and an eye-catching beaded belt, cascaded beautifully into a skirt of soft netting. She looked so beautiful and ethereal. Dan looked smart in his suit by Next. A dark blue suit which he wore with a coral tie. His Bestman also matched wearing the same suit.
The dusky pink bridesmaids dresses matched the style of Hayley’s which she bought from Asos looked so beautiful. Especially against the punchy bright tones of the bouquet arranged beautifully by Paula’s Petal.
There are so many impressive highlights from their blessing. I loved that Hayley’s dad made the tube signs for each table. I loved that Hayley and her bridesmaids didn’t stop laughing all day. The bond between Hayley and her girls was so beautiful to see. In order to get the shots of the shard in the background Hayley climbed a wall and manoeuvred around a large lamppost all in her heels. She couldn’t have done it without the support of her bridesmaids who climbed on the wall first to test that it was safe and doable. Thats friendship!! :) Dan on the other hand Jumped on and off the wall with ease. He however wasn’t wearing heels! :)
Another beautiful couple (how do I do it) and amazing day! Photographing so many different stories and how each couple make it their own is what I love capturing the most. Encompassing all those awesome loves and what makes their story truly theirs. It’s just incredible! Congratulations to you both. Love Rx
