One thing I don’t see much of at weddings are Army tanks and if the tanks won’t come to us (without ruining a lawn) then we need to go to them and it leads us to the rather kooky, 100% cool Islington Metal Works in London.
It’s such a Fab place and only 10 minutes from Islington Town Hall which is where Rachel and Chris got married.
Their ceremony at Islington Town Hall was unlike any other. The rules are no religious presence anywhere which is why you don’t see traditional hymns at a registry office.
This doesn’t mean you can’t take those rules and bend the heck out of them. Queens ‘Don’t stop me now’ and Ben E Kings ‘Stand by me’ aren’t religious so we did indeed have song during the ceremony.
Islington Metal Works is great because they will decorate it any way you want and everyone is quite sweet there. The freedom and the friendliness they offer you is a win in my book!
We also spent some time setting up some cool shots of the tank with smoke bombs and strobes. It was awesome.
