I was very much looking forward to the wedding of Georgina and Ian. It was going to be a lovely summer wedding at the Rosendale, a gorgeous wedding venue in London. I have worked a few times already at the Rosendale. It is a lovely environment and venue. The food is great! The weather was nice and warm with sunshine throughout the day. It was the beginning of the heatwave. My day started with Georgina and her friends getting ready. The bride had hired a house for everyone to get ready at. It was busy with people coming in and out and getting ready in different parts of the house. It was full of life and everyone was in great spirits! The morning preparations allow me to meet some of the main guests at a wedding and form a relationship early on. Everyone was friendly and very easy to talk to.
I left after a while to the church that was nearby. Ian was waiting, welcoming guests as they arrived. He also looked calm and relaxed. The church was beautiful and the bride and bridesmaids were early which is very rare at weddings! It is fair to say that Georgina was well organised and she wanted to make sure that she wasn’t late. The service was beautiful. The priest was friendly and the readings were meaningful. It all made for a beautiful ceremony. After the ceremony, the bride and the groom greeted their guests before some of them left for the venue whilst close family stayed behind for family photos and a few portraits of the bride and groom.
The Rosendale is a favourite wedding venue for couples who look for a beautiful yet informal setting for their wedding day. The venue has an outside area which is great in summer for the drinks reception. The guests enjoyed champagne and canapés before going upstairs for speeches and then the wedding breakfast. It was a lovely reception and the speeches were lovely too. You could tell how much love there was for the bride and groom. The speeches were funny and meaningful. After the speeches, it was then time for the wedding breakfast.
After the meal, there was some time for guests to unwind a bit. Some choose to stay in the bar area were a duet were playing music, whilst some went outside. Then came the first dance which was great fun as the bride and groom danced and clearly had lots of fun with each other. I left shortly after the first dance.
Below are some of my favourite images from their wedding day. It really was a lovely wedding with a great couple. They were easy to work with, caring and fun to be around. I really hope that you love this selection and I would love t hear your comments. If you are considering a summer wedding at the Rosendale, I can certainly recommend the venue!
