Weddings that use a dry hire venue often end up being some of my favourites to shoot. Whilst they might require a little more consideration they are wonderful for couples who don’t want to compromise on their wedding vision. It also allows a level of creativity that might not be possible in a more restricted venue. West Reservoir Centre in North London is one of my favourite dry hire venues in London. It has lots of quirky original features and the jetty is a beautiful spot for photos. Emma and Jonny added their own spin to the space with a Gods Own Junkyard neon ‘happiness’ sign and lots of big helium filled balloons. They also hired the fabulous Laura Devine of Devine Bride to do their on the day coordination which meant everything ran very smoothly. I would absolutely recommend her for wedding coordination especially for a dry hire as there is often so many more suppliers to organise. Thank you Laura and thank you Emma and Jonny for letting me share some of your pictures!
