Eli and David got married back in the summer. They chose the beautiful Burgh House in London to hold their ceremony. Burgh House was built in 1704 and was the first large house to be built in Hampstead. In my infinite wisdom I somehow managed to get to the venue 2 hours early, luckily Burgh House has an amazing little cafe, so I went and had a coffee in there.
Eli turned up to Burgh House in a black cab, which is an awesome alternative to hiring a traditional wedding car. David was already waiting inside, in his rather swish blue suit and bow tie combo. The music room in the house, is where they hold wedding ceremonies. It has a lovely baby grand piano at the front, although it does make it a little tight to move around. One of the readings Eli and David had, is my absolute favourite. “Oh the places you’ll go” by Dr Suess is such a lovely tale and fits perfectly with a wedding.
After the wedding, we all moved into the art gallery at the house. I’ve never been more nervous moving around a venue, I’m accident prone as it is and has visions of me knocking over some priceless piece of artwork. Luckily I did not. Drinks and canapés were all served in the gallery. One little surprise that happened, was that members of Elis family presented the bride and groom with Customised Converse trainers which was a lovely little touch.
Once we had finished eating and drinking, it was time to head off. Eli and David had hired a route master to take everyone on to the restaurant that they were all having dinner in. We stopped near Hyde Park and the entire wedding party walked down to the Serpentine to do group shots. Alas, we were not fortunate with the weather and it started raining. Luckily we managed to get all our shots done. Once the group shots were finished, my time with the wedding was over and they all headed off to a restaurant to carry on the celebrations.
Here we are with my highlights from Elisandra & Davids wedding at Burgh House, London.
