Caledonian Club Weddings
Torrential rain and thunderstorms soaked the capital today and the first sight I had of Laurie & William were of them huddled together under an umbrella making their way to Farm Street Church where we had our pre-wedding meeting.
The church (The Church of the Immaculate Conception, Farm Street) lies on a small quiet street in Mayfair and has done so for over 160 years, the name ‘Farm Street’ derives from ‘Hay Hill Farm’ which, in the eighteenth century, extended from Hill Street eastward beyond Berkeley Square. During the London Blitz the church roof was damaged by incendiary bombs in September 1940 and the west front received major structural damage by a high explosive blast in September 1941, repairs were not completed until 1951. This beautiful church is surprisingly large inside and is calm, peaceful, and tranquil – a strong contrast to the busy capital outside.
Laurie & William will hold their wedding breakfast at the Caledonian Club (where we are recommended wedding photographers) and we are really looking forward to their wedding in a few weeks time … hopefully the weather will be a lot better than today.
Update: Laurie & William are now married, read about their Caledonian Club Wedding.
