Intimate City Wedding – The Hoxton Southwark, London
Stylish Micro Wedding in London
It’s always an honour to document a wedding for a fellow creative. When Hannah, a talented wedding stylist and founder of Studio Porter, got in touch about documenting her intimate city wedding in London, we were so excited.
The day was to be split into two parts. First, a Greek ceremony followed by a modern intimate reception at The Hoxton Southwark. Hannah had planned two separate bridal looks for each part of the day and they did not disappoint.
We began the first half of the day at the families local Greek Church in London to celebrate his Cypriot heritage. It was an important and meaningful morning to both Hannah and Yianni along with their close loved ones.
Hannah looked incredibly chic in her Eva Lendel wedding dress paired with the most beautiful floor length Harriette Gordon veil as she walked down the aisle with her father. She had also worked very closely with her florist Rosie who suggested a selection of seasonal flowers in the most gorgeous autumnal colour pallet for her bouquet.
Wedding at The Hoxton Hotel Southwark
After the ceremony we headed to The Hoxton Hotel Southwark in central London. The Hoxton serves as a perfect choice for those looking to stay at a Boutique Hotel wedding venue and we highly recommend it. Hannah and Yianni booked the large private suite area allowing guests to mingle between perfectly styled rooms whilst enjoying the most delicious canapés and personalised cocktails.
Hannah has a passion for designing beautiful tablescapes as a wedding planner and had so much fun in creating something unique for herself. Each and every detail had been meticulously considered and thought about. From working closely with the amazing team at The Hoxton Hotel itself, commissioning a local ceramist to create delicate hand-made gingham vases, to serving traditional Greek biscuits beautifully wrapped in muslin tied by a piece of hand-dyed silk ribbon as wedding favours.
We Brought Hannah and Yianni out onto the private balcony for a few moments for some couple portraits. The Hoxton is such a great space, every detail incredibly modern and stylish. Hannah later changed into her second outfit – a classic lace dress from Self-Portrait and oversized Ghost London Ivory blazer, paired with modern accessories from Cult Gaia and Botias Accessories to complete the look.
We left guests to enjoy the cocktails as we headed to the National Theatre near Southbank to take some couple portraits. This area was particularly sentimental to Hannah as she used to watch live Ballet performances when she was a child with her mother at both the National Theatre and Royal Festival Hall.
We had previously scouted key areas we thought would work best as a backdrop whilst also being away from the crowds. The four of us couldn’t stop laughing and the photos came out beautifully. Once we had finished taking wedding photos near Southbank we headed back to The Hoxton where we joined the guests for speeches and an intimate meal. The whole day felt incredibly relaxed and low-key which is our favourite kind of intimate city wedding in London to document.
