Chelsea Old Town Hall Wedding Photography
As a documentary wedding photographer, I love to shoot the whole day. I’m often on my feet for more than twelve hours at a wedding, photographing everything from the bride getting ready, the hubbub at church in the buildup to the ceremony, right through to the party late at night. So the prospect of photographing a small town hall wedding for just a couple of hours on a quiet Sunday afternoon might sound like a breeze. In fact, it’s just a different kind of challenge. The worry that there isn’t going to be enough going on is at the forefront of my mind. But I needn’t have worried. From the moment I began Alex and Maggie’s Chelsea Old Town Hall wedding photography there was no shortage of moments to capture, and lots of excited anticipation in the buildup to the ceremony.
The wedding happened to coincided with the annual Ride London cycling event, which meant that a number of the roads were closed around town. I’d arrived by tube, but as I watched a few latecomers rushing to get to the previous wedding on time, I began to wonder if our wedding would happen on time! Thankfully though as the wedding guests spilled out onto the steps of the town hall, Alex arrived and we were shown inside. Maggie arrived a few moments later with their son, who as it turned out, had crossed the river together on foot, in order to get to the town hall on time. Despite the rush, Maggie was totally chilled and in high spirits, and although there were one or two late arrivals, the ceremony began on time and went without a hitch. Alex’s dad was on video duty and the whole ceremony was conducted in a very relaxed way, with their son free to wonder round the room to his heart’s content. From the town hall it was decided to make the short walk down the road to a pub where the celebrations continued. Alex and Maggie you were brilliant and I wish you all the best for the future!
