London wedding photography | Diana and David

Diana and David’s wedding took place in the ancient and atmospheric church of St Etheldreda in Ely Place, London, the oldest Catholic church in England, and their reception was in The Crypt, directly below the church, where in 1531 Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon hosted a Grand Celebration which lasted five days and nights. I don’t think this wedding was planning on lasting that long…

I was able to combine my contemporary style of wedding photography with unobtrusive reportage photography to record the events of the day, while also creating some beautiful portraits of Diana and David in and around Smithfield Market. I was also able to smoothly shoot some family groups in front of the church.

Diana got ready with her sister and the two mums at The Fox and Anchor pub, also in Smithfield, London, and was then driven to St Etheldreda’s Church in a white London taxi, with her mum, who would also walk her down the aisle. David had two Best Men just to make sure, and the evening was completed with some very boisterous Ceilidh dancing.

Poppy and Boz’ Kent wedding

Poppy and Boz had a spectacular wedding, the ceremony taking place in an ancient candle-lit chapel in Dode, in deepest darkest Kent. Later at the reception, there was an oyster bar, an aerial stunt display piloted by Poppy’s brother Ed, a hot air balloon and fireworks!

The Norman chapel at Dode is a rare and magical place, apparently looking almost exactly as it did 900 years ago when it was first built in the reign of William Rufus, the son of William the Conqueror. The Village of Dode was destroyed in 1349 as a result of the Black Death and afterwards the building was abandoned until re-discovery and partial restoration in 1901.
Poppy and Boz’ wedding day was full of excitement and emotion – Poppy smiled all day and looked amazing in her Lusan Mandogus dress, and it was Boz who shed a tear during the speeches. One of the bridesmaids, Jill, sang a song during the ceremony that she’d written specially for them. Poppy is an artist and designed and created all the place settings, signs, table decorations and cake herself.

Simone and Michael – a wedding in Wales

Simone and Mike’s wedding took place in sunny South Wales and as we’re a long way from Hertfordshire, I chose to stay the previous night in Carmarthen, to make sure we were there on time! Simone and the girls got ready at the reception venue, the fab boutique hotel The Grove, in Narberth. As you’ll see, Simone was supported by her gorgeous bridesmaids, dressed in the bold red of the colour scheme. Mike is a designer, and his touch was evident in all the stationery, seating plan and table decorations.
I’ve included a couple of group shot in this post, just to show that they are an important part of the photographic coverage of the day, and also that they can be fun and involving.
