Spectacular Jewish Wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf, London
Hannah + Dan’s Whirlwind Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding in London
This was my first Jewish wedding, my first time at Trinity Buoy Wharf & my first time working with the awesome Jade from Hushabye Films 💪 WHAT A DAY ⚡️
It was epic from start to finish with Hannah & Dan 🧡 We felt so welcomed in by them and their amazing families during what was a WHIRLWIND of a day ✌️ Big shout out to my man Chris from The Wedding Arrangers pulling the strings and making things look so easy behind the scenes ⚡️
Hannah and Dan have been together since they were in school, Hannah was a mean girl and dan was an inbetweener, when they turned 18 their friend (who was at the wedding) set them up and the rest is history! Hannah doesn’t use social media, which was super refreshing, she gets most of her news through screenshots via her sister – so when it came to planning the wedding they mostly went off recommendations. They’ve been together 10 years and found me though the hero that is Chris at the wedding arrangers.
Bridal prep was at the Town hall hotel, owned by the Ned Group, which has a stunning interior and transpires you can also get married there too as its a fully functioning town hall.
I think this Jewish Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding is one of the biggest wedding’s i’ve ever shot, in terms of things to shoot, there was so much going on throughout the day. There was a semi-traditional jewish ceremony held at Trinity Buoy Wharf, including circling during the ceremony with both Hannah and Dan taking part, the Tisch, where many whiskeys were enjoyed by the groomsmen before the ceremony and the stamping of the glass “mazel tov!”.
The ceremony was beautiful and very personal, followed by the confetti shot, with 180 people, absolute carnage! We jumped into the drinks reception straight from the confetti shot, giving the couple a much needed break before the family formals.
I need to talk about the Israeli dancing, i loved it, i really loved it – everyone knew what to do and they all went for it, dancing on chairs, spinning and just generally having the best time. I’ve learned from many ceilidh’s over the year to find a high vantage point and stay there – unless you want an elbow in the face or a heel through your foot! I captured some fantastic images whilst managing to put my own spin on them, and not getting elbowed in the face – a total win. During the Hora, Dan was dropped which was terrifying to watch but overshadowed only by the terror on Hannah’s face, the entire time, Dan kept telling her to smile but she just gripped on for dear life – very very funny to capture!
As the food ended and the DJ & saxophonist left, the gospel choir came on (absolutely unbelievable) along with the arrival of mountains of espresso martini’s, followed by the band, Totem Superstars, who were tremendous, they kept the crowd engaged and were on for hours kicking the party off right through until we were all kicked out at midnight. It was one hell of a party.
I loved shooting this wedding, Hannah + Dan were so unbelievably welcoming and fun, their family were particularly wonderful too – at one point Hannahs dad was chasing me around with a burger because he knew i hadn’t stopped to eat anything.
Trinity buoy wharf is a cool venue, there was loads of amazing places to shoot and that sunset over canary wharf was spectacular, i would love to shoot there again.
