St Stephen’s wedding photography – Maeve & Ed.
Maeve & Ed’s wedding was at St Stephen’s, Rosslyn Hill, Hampstead in London.
St Stephen’s was built in 1864 and was in use as a parish church until 1977 when it became disused, for a number of years the church was occupied by squatters and faced demolition. Later the building was Grade I listed and leased to the St Stephen’s Restoration and Preservation Trust who have done a marvelous job raising the money for repairs and bringing the building back into use in the community.
It does seem a little strange at first to be able to hold a civil ceremony in an old church, but the building makes a fantastic venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions.
I photographed Maeve getting ready at her flat across London and then caught up with Ed at St Stephen’s before the wedding ceremony. Afterwards guests enjoyed the sunshine outside St Stephen’s before heading back in for the receiving line and wedding breakfast. Speeches and dancing followed.
These are just a few of the photographs from Maeve & Ed’s wedding photography at St Stephen’s, Hampstead.
