Gritte and Stephen had their wedding at Rosslyn Hill Chapel near Hampstead Heath and their wedding reception at the Camden Lock Holiday Inn a few weeks ago... actually it was several weeks ago now, I'm desperately trying to play catchup here!
Gritte got ready at the Holiday Inn, ably assisted by family and friends. All the wedding flowers were supplied by Lulu, who wanders streets broad and narrow, selling flowers from a barrow, while simultaneously campaigning to become Mayor of Camden. I don't know how Lulu has got on with her political aspirations, but her flowers were certainly a vote winner.
Rosslyn Hill Chapel is a lovely and incredibly well hidden little place, you really wouldn't have a clue it was there unless you knew about it. Gritte and her family are from Germany and had borrowed the priest from a German Church in London to conduct a lovely Anglo-German ceremony.
Both Gritte and Stephen are very keen archers and their archery club formed a tunnel of arrows for them after the ceremony. The original plan was to use bows as well, but the logistics of transporting bows and arrows on the tube (as well as the danger of arrest) proved a little too much.
The view from the top of the Camden Lock Holiday Inn is really quite spectacular and Camden Lock itself provides some fantastic backdrops - even the graffiti looks cool.
Shy about doing your first dance? Gritte and Stephen's top tip is to wear a cunning disguise so no one will recognise you!
Gritte and Stephen had a brilliant fun fulled day and the weather couldn't have been more perfect for them. The Camden Lock Holiday Inn is a great venue right at the centre of one of London's most exciting areas, you can find more information on their website.
