Our Story


Andy and Abigail met 11 years ago in beautiful Durham. 

Abi, a young impressionable fresher, arrives to meet her college parents for the first time. A long running tradition where unsuspecting first years are paired with second years prepped for an evening of boat races, fish bowls and a night out education.

With about 70% of Durham graduates going on to marry fellow students it would be nice to say that the rest is history but, as Abi stood waiting to be adopted, it became apparent that her parents were a no show.

But never fear dear readers, it was however meant to be. It turned out that Andy had spent the evening interviewing one of Abi's favorite bands and all was forgiven (eventually). Night after night of general music snobbery and dancing in Studio, selected floors only, sealed the deal and now here we are.

Please help us to celebrate the match making skills of Hild Bede College with yet another evening of pretentious pop, dubious drinking rules and the most questionable dancing Islington has ever seen. 


Wedding Details

The ceremony will be at St James'  Church followed by dinner and drinks at the beautiful Old  Finsbury Town Hall in Clerkenwell. Dress comfortably, and come prepared to dance!

Being in London there are a lot of different places to stay within close proximity of the venue. It's best to travel to the church either on foot or by taxi as there is not enough parking around the church to accommodate all of our guests.

The church and reception are within walking distance of Angel tube station and about a ten minute taxi from Kings Cross St Pancras.

Below is a selection of well-reviewed hotels at various budgets. We recommend booking hotels sooner rather than later as our wedding is during half-term and rooms may book up ahead of time.
