God’s Own Junkyard Wedding


Anna and Alex

Anna and Alex had their wedding at God’s Own Junkyard, a brilliantly quirky and uber cool venue in Walhamstow in London. I absolutely adored being the photographer for this wedding, it was a total blast from start to finish.

Also, I got to snuggle Buddy – Anna and Alex’s Jack Russell! NB. I took a LOT of photos of Buddy! Sorry. Very much not sorry!

We love the photos and spent the day going through them, finding new favourites and spotting more amazing details and expressions.
You’re the best!”

Anna, is a trained humanist celebrant herself – so of course they choose a humanist celebrant wedding! And they choose the fabulous Dawn Rees to officiant their wedding. And she is mega! If I told you she was a former stand-up comedian you might get an idea of the type of service she performed. Funny, personal, invested. Just brilliant. It was a treat to behold for sure!

The ceremony at God’s Own Junkyard

The ceremony included a beautiful song by twelve year old Ruby, She sang And I love Her, while her dad played guitar. It was truly wonderful and very moving. It was a really personal ceremony and I think that’s the great thing about having a celebrant – you get to make the ceremony you want. It’s personal and tailored to you, which is really special.

God’s Own Junkyard is not your typical wedding venue. It’s a hidden gem located in the heart of London, where old neon signs and vintage props come together to create a dazzling display of art. Imagine saying your vows surrounded by a kaleidoscope of colours, sparkling lights, and quirky decorations. It’s like stepping into a whimsical wonderland.

The beauty of a God’s Own Junkyard wedding lies in its vibrant and eclectic atmosphere. Every corner of this venue offers a unique photo opportunity, making it a dream come true for any wedding photographer. From the neon-lit walls to the retro furniture, every detail adds to the overall charm and character of the space.

Karaoke Kings!

After the ceremony, there was much drinking, confetti throwing photos, more drinking and much laughing! Anna and Alex ordered in a Moroccan feast from a local takeaway for guests to dig into. It looked and smelled absolutely wonderful.

In the evening, we headed down the road to Orford House where Anna and Alex had hired a private room. This was a brilliant space for everyone to spread out and settle in for the evening.

And this is a good time to mention the that. Karaoke. OHMYGOSH, I have never heard so many talented karaoke stars in one room. Alex kicked off the evening and I literally thought I was at an Elbow concert. So many amazing voices – and also brilliant dancing too!

I left after sparklers outside and honestly I grinned all the way home and then all the way through the editing! What a joy.

Thank you for having me along. Bloody love you guys! xxx
