GETTING MARRIED IN LONDON
Whether you are planning a wedding that is large and extravagant or small and intimate the beautiful leafy city of London is sure to have a venue and location that suits you perfectly. With famous hotels, iconic buildings, galleries, museums, parks, gardens, and stunning riverside locations the choices for wedding venues and portrait locations are endless and infinitely varied. As a London wedding photographer I am constantly inspired by this wonderful city, it’s full of hidden gems and picturesque and romantic backdrops. I’ve lived in or just outside London all my life but I’m still discovering new and exciting locations.
If you are currently planning your London wedding why not get in touch? I’d love to hear all about your exciting plans and we can chat about how I can work with you to creatively document your dream London wedding.
LONDON’S BEST AND UNIQUE WEDDING VENUES TO GET MARRIED
London is home to a fantastic variety of beautiful and luxury wedding venues making it the ultimate location for a city wedding. Many of London’s hotel wedding venues are known around the world, The Savoy and The Dorchester are long established and world renowned luxury hotels and the Corinthia London is known for it’s elegance. The Landmark London is another stunning and historic wedding venue, The Connaught Hotel is situated on Mayfair and has a reputation for luxury. For those who prefer a modern twist to a luxury wedding venue The Shangri-La at The Shard also boasts unrivalled views over London.
If you prefer not to have your wedding in a hotel many of London’s famous landmarks are also wedding venues and can provide unique and creative opportunities for your wedding photography. No. 11 Cavendish Square and 10-11 Carlton House Terrace (home of The British Academy) are both perfectly suited to sophisticated weddings. Banqueting House is a Historic Royal Palace and provides a stunning backdrop to weddings of all sizes and Petersham Nurseries provide a uniquely enchanting wedding venue.
The list of possibilities for London weddings is endless and varied, but many people are surprised to learn that London can also offer rural weddings. The Grove Hotel at Watford is set in 300 acres of parkland and gardens, Syon Park is a stunning historic house within a country estate, and the world famous Kew Gardens is a truly enchanting location for an unforgettable wedding.
DOCUMENTARY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IN LONDON, UK AND BEYOND
Documentary wedding photography has become increasingly popular as a style over the last decade, but what exactly is it? As a documentary photographer, I take an unobtrusive approach to capturing the highlights and unstaged moments of emotion in an authentic and natural manner as your wedding day unfolds. For much of the day I fade into the background, I don’t alter scenes or interfere in any way. I rely on my observational and creative storytelling skills and focus on capturing timeless images of the people, places, events and special moments of your day. Ahead of every wedding I like to get to know my couples through a pre-wedding consultation and we discuss incorporating formal group photos and romantic and creative couple portraits into the wedding day. During these parts of the day I will offer guidance and direction to make the best use of light and location whilst also ensuring that these images are a true reflection of your personalities.
While London is an amazing city for a wedding there is no shortage of breath-taking locations all around the UK. From castles and stately homes, to barns and beaches, from weddings in mountains and fields to the shores of a lake, there really are endless possibilities for weddings to suit every style and taste. It doesn’t matter whether you are seeking the height of luxury or simple rustic chic, there will be a perfect UK wedding venue for you. For couples based in London but looking for countryside weddings there are some fantastic venues to be found within an hour or less from the city. Coworth Park, Hedsor House, Froyle Park and Northbrook Park are all idyllic venues set in magnificent open spaces and easily accessible from the capital.
Being close to London with its motorway and transport network means I’m ideally placed to travel throughout the UK. If you are looking for a documentary wedding photographer, I’d love to hear all about your plans.
