Beautiful Walthamstow Wetlands!

Thank you for all of your help organising our event yesterday. The Practice meeting went very well and it was great to hold it at Walthamstow Wetlands. We were lucky to have such good weather on the day as well. Please could you pass on our thanks to Charlie who looked after us yesterday. Everything went very smoothly on the day and we were looked after very well.

Industrial style venue in a London nature reserve

How cool is that?! I didn't know such a place existed in London before I shot Sarah and Dom's wedding. It is perfect for urban weddings with a rustic touch. It is also ideal for spring and summer weddings when you can make the most of the outside area. It's a great venue if you are having a wedding band as you won't disturb anyone! And the friendly team is lovely to work with!

Very Special Venue!

Firstly, of course, a massive thank you to you and Charlie and the rest of team at the Wetlands, we had a truly wonderful day with the Wetlands obviously playing a starring role! The venue had so many admirers on the day, and it really was the perfect place for our somewhat unconventional, ethically-conscious and above-all fun reception. The Wetlands are an amazingly beautiful natural space so close to London and the Engine House adds a delightful industrial element that gives the whole package a unique charm. It's been a pleasure to work with you over the last few months, we really have enjoyed all the conversations and appreciated all your work to make our event so special.
