Barbara and Mark’s MC Motors Wedding

Here’s some fantastic images of the recent wedding of Barbara and Mark at MC Motors. After getting married at St. Mary Moorfields Church in Bishopsgate the happy couple arrived down our alleyway via pink taxi. There was a vintage 1950s feel to proceedings with Barbara in her beautiful Candy Anthony prom style dress and the bridesmaids standing out from the crowd in sassy yellow polka dotted numbers.

With the chemistry of the Irish-Aussie crowd bubbling nicely the scene was set for a good ol’ knees up with music provided courtesy of rockabilly outfit The Hightown Crows and MC Motors regulars The Wedding Smashers. The newly-weds then had their profile shots taken next door in Ruby House while the underground bar played host to those late night owls still standing at the end.

We’d like to thank both Barbara and Mark for allowing us to use their fantastic images and we’re delighted to have met you both and that the day went so well. Also many thanks to Nick Tucker, the photographer, for producing such images and again for allowing us to share them. Check out his site for more pictures and if anyone’s looking for a wedding photographer he definitely gets our recommendation!

The wedding (and a very complimentary feature – thanks!) was also featured on cult wedding blog Rock n Roll Bride which also provides plenty more images to delve through!

Vogue Sposa March 2011

Here are some beautiful pictures in the March 2011 edition of Vogue Sposa shot at The House Next Door. The quarterly Italian magazine by Conde Nast concentrates on mixing all things wedding with all things style. These vintage themed pics by Wendy Bevan certainly fit that category!

Alex and Melita’s Wedding

Over the summer we hosted the wedding of Alex and Melita at MC Motors. After getting married at The Chapel of St. Peter and St. Paul at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich the happy couple made their way over to us in a wonderful silver 1962 Karmann Ghia with guests following across the river in traditional London taxis and a Routemaster bus.

After entering to the applause of friends and family the car was acutely reversed next to the entertainment for the evening provided by “fine purveyors of filthy swing” Top Shelf Jazz. A sit down meal for 130 ensued with vietnamese Summer Rolls to start and a tantalising Thai green curry for main course with after dinner coffees being provided by Brewedboy and his quirky coffeemobile.

The couples family had helped to stamp the newly weds mark on the venue by creatively decorating it with colourful floristry. After the speeches the first dance was to “At Last” by Etta James with one guest remarking that it had been “the best event they had ever been to”. High praise indeed.

Many thanks to Alex and Melita for sharing the pictures of their special day with us and check out photographer Liam Bailey’s site where there’s more examples of the great work he’s done.

Another Great Wedding

Here are some brilliant pictures of the wedding reception of Laura and Ewen we recently hosted at The Depository and The House Next Door.

Following the ceremony at Frederick’s in Islington Laura, Ewen (in their fantastic vintage Citroen) and their guests made the short trip over to Stoke Newington.

After having some amazing portraits taken in The House Next Door the newly weds moved into the Depository for the reception. Following a buffet, a few speeches and many a glass of champagne the party began and from reports a great night was had by all!

Congratulations to the happy couple and thanks for letting us use the pics!

Also thanks to photographer David McNeil, check out his site and blog where there’s loads more images of this particular wedding and many more he’s done in the past!

MC Motors Wedding

Here’s an example of one of the fantastic weddings we have staged on at one of our locations. After getting married at The Bank of England Dan and Eddie made the short journey over to MC Motors in a vintage Jaguar to be greeted inside by their awe struck guests.

If ever there was a time to let the pictures do the talking….
