Alternative Wedding Photographer Surrey - The beautiful Winter Wedding of Checky&Niko in Hackney

March 7, 2017


Checky and Niko had a beautiful Winter Wedding last November in London and they gave us some very good chances to follow our alternative wedding photography approach. The ceremony was held at the Chelsea Old Town Hall in London, a place where we had the pleasure to work before when we photographed the wedding of Stef&Ben. Funny enough Checky and Niko also organised a bus tour through the city to take all their guests to Hackney, where the reception was going to be. They chose a beautiful alternative space for their wedding, Coate Studios "a versatile Warehouse space in the heart of Hackney". Their beautiful room had been decorated and designed by the interior decorator Maddalena and Alessia, two extremely talented young girls who run MAADEstudio "an interdisciplinary studio specialising in architecture, interior and events".


This is a peak of what they have created, I personally think the rustic wedding decor was extremely original and at the same time modern and very fashionable.

We loved the apple used as place holder! :)

The floral design came from the fantastic work of Renata Wild Flowers, a great floral design studio based in East London. Quoting the website, "Wild Renata Flowers is for those who aren't keen on sticking to the rules and who are excited by nature and bringing spaces to life, people who think outside of the vase. Wild Renata Flowers offers a personal, creative and adventurous approach to any event you are planning or space you want dressing. No job is too big or too small and no ideas will be turned away". If you are looking for an alternative and different wedding floral design, Wild Renata Flowers is definitely highly recommended! Checky looked beautiful in her flowers, her bouquet was just stunning, we loved every little blossom of it!

And you cannot call it a wedding where there's not an amazing cake and you cannot keep eating sweets and sweets and sweets!!

Checky and Niko's wedding was very special to us, in fact we got to meet again a bunch of amazing guys that we had the pleasure to meet in Italy when we photographed the beautiful destination wedding in Sorrento, Amalfi Coast of Rosalba&Francesco. Meeting these guys again, this time for a wedding in London and in a completely different situation, has been just priceless!!


For Checky and Niko's wedding we took the most out of the fact that we are two wedding photographers. Benni followed our beautiful bride during the Bridal Preparation, while Carol went to document Niko relaxing and enjoying his time at the Trafalgar in Chelsea with his friends just before the ceremony.


We are extremely happy to having documented this alternative and creative wedding with our photography. If you are planning your personal wedding adventure, just get in touch and find out more about our photography service!


In the meanwhile, enjoy Checky and Niko's beautiful images.
