Peckam London wedding photography - secluded and intimate Southwark Register Office served as the elopement stage
The secluded and intimate Southwark Register Office served as the stage for Emma and Michael’s small family-only wedding. The couple exchanged vows at the historic South London venue, then celebrated the occasion with drinks at Southwark’s Union Street Café, one of chef Gordon Ramsay’s Mediterranean-themed establishments.
The bride and groom clasp hands as they walk into the venue, the crowd coming to their feet, happy and expectant. Colorful flowers and muted chandelier light add a soft ambiance to the setting.
