Old Marylebone Town Hall and The Lanesborough wedding featuring Schiaparelli perfection

Jenny and Esta’s The Lanesborough wedding was impossibly chic – a perfect celebration of them as an incredibly stylish, incredibly in love couple.

Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding ceremony

Jenny and Esta got ready together, which gave me a pretty unique opportunity to shoot some portraits before the ceremony. We started at the hotel in the impressive library, then took some photos in the back of the taxi, which have such a gorgeous, intimate vibe. Then, we had time to explore the streets around the ceremony venue for a bit, strolling down picturesque mews, wide cobbled streets and some very aesthetically pleasing walls too.

Their ceremony was at Old Marylebone Town Hall, which is one of my favourite London wedding venues. You’ll no doubt recognise the steps outside, with those beautifully hollowed out arches, but what you might not have seen before is the inside of the venue which is equally as stunning.

The ceremony room itself is panelled in dark wood, making it super atmospheric – especially when Jenny and Esta’s family and friends, the most supportive gang, did the biggest cheer after they’d said their vows – whilst the marble hallways make for an airier backdrop (both Jenny and Esta are Greek, and I feel like Old Marylebone Town Hall is the perfect venue for a modern interpretation of a pretty classic and classy aesthetic).

Schiaparelli suit jacket and a Matches dress

A moment for Jenny and Esta’s style is needed, too – Jenny wore a long white Matches dress with feathered cuffs and embellished Jimmy Choos, whilst Esta wore an incredible blazer from Schiaparelli, emblazoned with inked totems like faces, doves, columns, and a pair of breasts. Their dog Charlie also dressed in his best, with a very fetching bow tie!

Natural, intimate atmosphere

Jenny’s original enquiry said:

“I saw your photography on Instagram and me and my partner absolutely adore the natural and intimate style of your photos. Everyone seems to be very relaxed with you behind the camera and this is exactly what I want for our special day.”

And, I’m happy to report, that’s exactly what they had, and it was a privilege to be a part of it!

I lapped up every single second of Jenny and Esta’s achingly cool wedding day – if you’re dreaming of a wedding day with a similar feel, I’d love to chat about being your photographer. Perhaps you’re thinking of having a The Lanesborough wedding, or saying your I Dos at Old Marylebone Town Hall, or maybe you’re thinking of somewhere else entirely – whatever your plans, get in touch here to tell me all about them. I can’t wait to hear them!
