Reception at The Peasant Pub Clerkenwell

Islington Town Hall Wedding

We are always motivated by an Islington wedding, not least because two of our children were born there, and of course we have many happy memories of life in N1.

For Claire and Chris having an Islington Town Hall wedding it was a day that created abundant and of course joyous memories for the future too.

The area had a special resonance for them as they met on a journalism course at City University nearby in Clerkenwell. It was also a major reason for choosing the Peasant Pub a gastro gem for their reception. More about the fantastic Peasant pub later.

The main chamber for an Islington Town Hall wedding is both beautiful and dramatic, and we used three different lens and camera combinations to do it justice. A great registrar can make a real difference to the feel of a wedding ceremony, and we have always had the best of experiences with them in Camden and Islington borough. This Saturday was no exception, they were enthusiastic yet reverent too.

Claire and Chris wanted a documentary style photographically for their big day, but still covering the bases with some more formal friends and family shots on the internal and external steps of the town hall. Taxis buses and good old fashioned walking then got everyone the short distance to the Peasant Pub Clerkenwell. There are many reasons Nick and his team at the Peasant pub are incredibly popular for weddings. They are friendly, efficient and nothing is too much trouble for them. They are staffed by the kind of people that when a smile comes to their face it comes quickly and then takes a long time to leave, and for us it has always been a good gauge of sincerity, especially in the hospitality industry!

As so many couple are interested are interested in the wedding venue at 240 Saint John Street EC1 we may feature it in a separate post. After a champagne welcome the couple spent twenty five minutes with myself and Joanna around the nearby streets of Clerkenwell. Although the weather stayed dry we had lots of fun dealing with the very windy conditions! Claire’s homage to Marilyn Monroe’s famous skirt lifting shot on an air vent image was a completely random windy moment caught.

Although we used our experience to gently direct the couple at the time, the day was about natural reactions and events well photographed and anticipated, and we believe the balance was well struck with Claire and Chris.

Clerkenwell Peasant pub wedding

Every now and then we like to focus a blog post on a venue that we have been particuarly impressed with. We have shot weddings from St Pancras to St Tropez in the last ten years, from small and humble weddings to the most oppulent and lavish affairs. What always impresses us greatly though, wherever a wedding reception may be, is the staff, their manner and the attention to detail they put in to creating a memorable experience for their couples. What’s to say about Peasant Pub weddings in Clerkenwell? Well it’s a Victorian boozer through and through with many period and charming features that’s also a pretty trendy Gastro pub. It has cool and iconic posters everywhere from the world of music and film, and a charm and atmosphere that words alone are difficult to describe.

The biggest assest though is it’s staff. As we’ve mentioned in our related Islington wedding post, nothing was too much trouble for Nick and his team. Great enthusiastic attitude, fast service and brilliant food, well cooked and in generous portions too.
