One Friendly place in Greenwich was one of the first places I second shot with Robin Ball photography, a good few years ago now, but it stuck in my memory as a venue I would love to go back to.

Built in the 1930s, One Friendly Place was originally a spice warehouse, tucked away on a private road in Deptford. It's warehouse charm is not your traditional venue - think exposed walls, brightly coloured murals and abstract art, and lots of fun and unique props! If you start to feel a bit tired there is even a double bed upstairs to rest your dancing feet for a little while. 

Affectionately known as one of the quirkiest venues in London, this place definitely has a bit of everything. Alongside the main space, there is a little greenhouse-esque area with peacock chairs and plants, making a great portrait area. There are so many main rooms and floors you have your pick when it comes to wedding breakfast location and dance floor area. 

If you head up a gorgeous wrought iron staircase you come out on the rooftop, overlooking south London. This is the perfect place for sunset portraits - check my last blog post here to see why I think they are a must on your big day!

This is the venue for you if you're a bride who loves colour, quirky props, mismatched furniture and a sense of untouched industrial charm. 

I personally loved this venue because the sense of fun that came off it. It is also a good blank canvas, but ready and waiting with props to use as wanted. There are so many things you could do with this space - I've seen so many different setups at this venue, each wedding is completely unique. For me, the portrait opportunities are endless - the peacock chairs in the conservatory, the coloured abstract walls, the rooftop - all make for fantastic couples backdrops. Group shots would also be fantastic here with plenty of room both indoors and outdoors.
