Daryl and Tom's Wedding: A Joyful Celebration at St Mary's Church in Islington, London

Daryl and Tom's recent wedding at St Mary's Church in Islington, London was a celebration filled with genuine joy, laughter, and personal touches that made their day truly memorable. The intimate affair, attended by around 20 guests, exuded warmth and happiness from start to finish.

The connection to the venue was deeply personal, as Tom had attended the nearby primary school, making St Mary's Church the perfect choice for their ceremony. Following the vows, the couple and their guests continued the festivities at Bellanger, just off fashionable Upper Street in Islington.

One of the unique details that stood out was the arrival of the couple in a classic white London taxi, adding a touch of London charm to the day. From the outset, it was clear that Daryl and Tom's personalities shone through in every aspect of their wedding planning and execution.

Their love story, spanning 15 years with a nine-year hiatus before rekindling their relationship, added an extra layer of significance to the day. As they laughed and celebrated with their closest friends and family, it was evident that their bond was stronger than ever.

As a documentary wedding photographer, my aim is always to capture the essence of the couple's love and the atmosphere of the day. For Daryl and Tom, joy was the prevailing emotion, and my photographs reflect the happiness that filled every moment of their wedding day.

"We picked Gary to photograph our London wedding and we couldn't have picked a better guy for the job. His enthusiasm and professionalism throughout the day were impeccable and brought joy and laughter to the day. We wanted photos that were natural and not forced and Gary managed to capture that in every single shot. We could not recommend Gary more."
