London Eye wedding – Lorna & Chris

London Eye wedding

A London Eye wedding

Well, actually the London Eye bit was to be the surprise for the wedding guests during the reception. The wedding was at one of London’s best wedding venues, the Georgian splendour of the RSA, which is less of a mouthful than the full title of  The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.

Lorna and Chris had come back to London from their current home in Singapore to get hitched. As Liverpool football fans holding a wedding with a bigger contingent of Everton football fans ( both family and friends ) it was ironic that as the actual ceremony concluded in the Benjamin Franklin room, so the Liverpool Derby should kick-off at Anfield. A late equaliser sealed a draw in the match and peace at the wedding. 😉  The RSA has some big screens dotted around the venue but no Sky Sports subscription…

After the ceremony, it was some drinks in the Tavern room before two big red Routemaster buses arrived outside. These took everyone down Whitehall, past Big Ben and over to the Southbank, to draw up near the big wheel. Five capsules had been booked, each with serving staff and champagne. Jumping the big queue, everyone headed onboard, with one young lad a bit unsure about the adventure. A London Eye wedding reception in the sky. It was a shame that the sky remained cloudy, although you could see Windsor castle on the horizon, almost 25 miles away. A short bus trip around the area before back across the river and to the wedding meal at the RSA.

Speeches got emotional, embarrassing and included an ‘ice bucket’ challenge, of a sort, for Chris. They also included a request from family and friends that one day Lorna and Chris would return to the UK from Singapore on a more permanent basis. There was a lot of love in the room for this couple.

It was then time to head down to the Vaults. Two wedding cakes, neither of them cakes – a cheese tower and a pork pie tower. Dancing, drinking and gurning to the camera in the photo booth. Several times, as they headed towards the London Eye, wedding guests remarked upon how high Lorna and Chris had set the bar for future weddings. “Best wedding ever” was said a lot. It certainly was a cracker! Also one of the nicest, laid back couples I’ve worked with, from the first Skype chat to the actual day.

Here are a few images from this London Eye and RSA wedding…
