Chelsea Town Hall – Liz & Dave
A firm favourite of London wedding photographers is a Chelsea Town Hall. It is always a delight to shoot here. Steeped in history and a backdrop to countless weddings of the good and great (and sometimes the naughty) the staff there are always friendly and courteous and they all have a touch of individuality that matches the venue. Liz & Dave had chosen Chelsea en route to Ibiza as their real wedding celebrations take place on the white isle later this week. However, as you have to already be married to get married in Ibiza, Chelsea was the choice and on the weekend that the super blues clinched the premier league title again, it was a fine day down Chelsea way.
Once signed and sealed at the Town Hall, time allowed for a quick livener in the nearby Sydney Arms pub before heading down the road to the Orange Elephant restaurant for a celebratory steak of the aforementioned name (OE) who just happen to be the largest of cattle in the UK should you have been wondering. So, no, its not just a funky name, its actually of some providence and authenticity so next time you are in and around Chelsea, be sure to check out the OE!
In the short time I spent with these guys and their closest family friends it was clear to see they firmly believe a smile should never be too far away and life is there to be enjoyed rather than endured. This may have some bearing on their choice of sealing the deal in Ibiza but either way there were all mighty fine company and I am pretty sure the sun will shine a little brighter this weekend on the the ‘partaay’ island. Good luck, have a blast and remember to dance like no-one is watching!
