Alice & Steph

This beautiful couple married in Orleans House Gallery on the outskirts of London on a lovely bright sunny day in Summer 2023. 

The Love Story 

Like so many modern couples Alice & Steph first met online and quickly fell in love in real life. They balance each other beautifully with Alice being energetic and bouncy and Steph being a collected and calm, both Alice and Steph are meticulous planners and organisers so wedding planning was a breeze with both taking roles in table decor, venues and dresses. 

Alice and Steph live near London with their two cats and share a love of study, home decor and luxury holidays and dining. 

Family was a big theme in the wedding with Alice and Steph's Mum's giving readings, both sets of parents walking both women down the aisle and grandparents signing the register. 

Alice & Steph had an intimate and lavish wedding but decided to skip the evening reception completely, it part to save money to spend on their home and partly because that's just not their jam! I think it's amazing that couples can personalise their day now and don't have to fit into a mould.

A gorgeous venue 

Orleans house gallery in Twickenham is a newly restored, Grade I Listed Octagon Room and it is available for hire to those looking to use a space for civil ceremonies for up to 60 guests. The gardens surrounding the venue boast lovely woodlands and a simply stunning backdrop of the River Thames. 

The wedding planner and team at the venue were extremely accommodating and calming for the couple on the day and the room itself is absolutely incredible.

The parking is fairly sparse although there was a special spot for the bridal car.

The Gallery

I'm pleased to share a selection of images from Alice & Steph's gallery here for you to look through. Alice gave lovely review of my service: 

Cat was utterly professional and a total joy to be around all day. From start to finish Cat was part of our journey and made our day so special, capturing truly elegant, romantic, fun, traditional and some contemporary shots that we had thought about before and came out so perfectly. Cat is super creative and knows a good shot when she see's one, even when we couldn't. Every picture was perfect, and we have 100s of specially edited and curated pictures of the best day of our lives. Thank you again.
