Jessie and Matt’s London wedding at The Horniman Museum and Gardens

Jessie and Matt first met and fell in love when the band Matt sang with were hiring to play at Jessie’s bar in Thailand. He also runs a bar in Greece, and with them working at their bars as well as on Jessie’s fashion line based in both Thailand and the UK, they are always on the move. We had only met Jessie and Matt over Skype prior to their wedding, but after chatting, their infectious excitement and energy meant were really looking forward to meeting them in person on their wedding day.

They are both such positive, outgoing and laid back people, that they wanted a wedding which would show their personalities and relaxed nature. Jessie was brought up in Soho, so they chose the very beautiful St Giles in The Fields church in Soho for their wedding ceremony, and then The Hornimann Museum and Gardens in Forest Hill for their reception which was an apt choice being founded by Frederick John Horniman, a man who travelled all over the world on his quest to ‘Bring the world to Forest Hill’.

As singing and music are such a big part of Matt’s life, it was very important that they be a big feature of the day. Besides him and one of the ushers singing during the ceremony, music filled the day with another good friend of theirs playing guitar while everyone sang along on the bus. In the evening another friend of theirs filled the Horniman conservatory with some live DJing.

They have possibly one of the worlds most awesome dog, Mister T, who travels everywhere with them and was their ring-bearer during the ceremony, and joined the couple for their first dance.

The weather on the day was incredible, so the gardens and the elegant Victorian conservatory at The Horniman were the perfect setting and provided lots of light to work with. We also got to work with the brilliant Tim Fok and his assistant, who were their videographers for the day, and who we can highly recommend if you are looking for a wedding videographer.

Thank you Jessie and Matt for choosing us to capture your wonderful wedding day.

    Laura and Henley captured everything that we had hoped for AND MORE, we were absolutely blown away by the outstanding images that were captured from that day. We now have memories of every one of our guests enjoying the day, shot from interesting angles and with a stunning use of light and the surroundings! I myself am very into my photography and I honestly have never seen work this spectacular.
    May I add that on the day it doesn’t feel invasive at all……their wonderful personas and charismatic ways of working mean you hardly notice you have photographers around you.
    I couldn’t reccommend Limeleafweddings enough, their photos really do speak for themselves.
    Thoroughly enjoyed being photographed by such talented people …..
