Newlyweds with Bridesmaids and Groomsmen

Much Ado About Wedding – Marian & Mike’s Globe Theatre Real Wedding by GM Photography

A traditional wedding in one of the most beloved yet unusual venues not just in London but in the UK – it was exactly what Marian and Michael were looking for! Keeping in theme with the colours and the Elizabethan décor with romantic candlelight, the couple and the guests had a most wonderful day, charmingly captured by GM Photography.

Your favourite wedding story: We spent three months looking at venues all over London, wanting something a little bit different to the standard hotel format. We looked at museums, country houses, galleries and even courthouses – but the moment we stepped inside the Globe, it was exactly what we were looking for after all those weeks – magical, romantic and unique – perfect!
