Hello and welcome to my new series on urban wedding venues. I love an urban wedding so I thought I would put together a series of blogs showcasing my favourite venues that I have found on my travels in the urban wedding jungle. I haven’t photographed a wedding at all of these venues, but I really want to. To start the series I have picked out and researched four of my favourite East London wedding venues. Below you will find the essential info for each of my favourite venues. I have also found out as to whether they are dog friendly!
