Wedding Photography St Matthew’s Church, Bethnal Green | Su Lin & Nik

This London wedding was without a doubt one of my highlights of last year. From the industrial vibe to the relaxed atmosphere, Su and Nik really made the wedding their own. Su turned out to be a lady of many talens and not only did her own make up but made her own bouquet and flower arrangements too after an early morning shop for flowers at the New Covent Garden Flower Market. Like mother like daughter, I suppose, considering that her lovely mum spent the last two days before the wedding sowing together her floor-lenght beaded veil (which was finished just minutes before it was time to leave for the ceremony).

It was a beautiful September day, a remnant of the summer days past. I met Su at Nik’s east London apartment as she was getting ready for her big day. From there it was a short walk down the road to St Matthew’s Church in Bethnal Green, where the ceremony took place. Su, looking stunning in her beaded Needle&Thread gown, drew the attention of every passer-by as we walked through London streets to church.

The church ceremony was a great mix of traditional and personal and from there on the wedding party continued to a cocktail bar NT’s for a relaxed BBQ reception. The weather was beautiful, so they were able to hold the BBQ outside on the terrace overlooking London and while the guests were mingling and the food was getting prepared, I snuck out with the bride and groom to grab a few couple portraits in the last sunlight.

I really loved that Su and Nik kept things relatively simple and focused on what is most important to them. If you would like to read about their wedding and all the planning it entailed in more detail (and from the bride herself), have a read on the wedding blog Love My Dress, which featured the wedding back in November.
