As weddings go we do not feel we are exaggerating by saying that the day was epic!  A beautiful wedding in the historic Chelsea Old Church, a scenic river cruise with Capital Pleasure Boats and now a reception at the superbly located Blueprint Cafe at the Design museum on the South Bank of the Thames.

After disembarking the Golden Star at Butler’s Wharf, we gathered the wedding party together for one of the most spectacular group shots I’m ever likely to take.

Whilst their closest family and friends filtered into the Blueprint CafeSharp Edge Photo took the opportunity to whisk off our Bride and Groom for some more intimate photographs.

Now our Bride and Groom were ready to make their entrance to the Blueprint Cafe.  On the first floor of the Design Museum, the Blueprint Cafe has an incredible panoramic view from Tower Bridge to Canary Wharf.  We found the staff to be welcoming and friendly.  A huge bonus was the floor to ceiling windows for the whole length of the room, a photographer’s dream as the room was bathed in soft evening light.

The speeches were well received all round, especially on the Top Table, where the default was uproarious laughter!  The highlight being a song from the Father of the Bride.

The wedding party were then served a delicious three course meal by the fabulous staff of the Blueprint Cafe, crowned by a main course of Hereford beef sirloin.  A satisfying meal was had to set the wedding party up for the long party ahead!

The evening’s entertainment was provided by the excellent The End of the Century Band.  Snesh and I had the pleasure of dining with this London and Essex three piece band.  When they started playing they certainly rocked Blueprint with tight rock and roll!
