Haberdashers Hall Wedding Photography

Haberdashers’ Hall Wedding Photography

London weddings are always special for me, and David and John’s Haberdashers’ Hall wedding photography was no exception. This was the second occasion that I’ve shot a wedding at Haberdashers’ Hall, and so I know what a great London venue it is. The enclosed courtyard garden creates the ideal space for guests to mingle and for the champagne reception after the ceremony, and the main hall has real wow factor with it’s high vaulted ceiling clad in North American Oak. During the day, light floods into the space, and as night falls, the hall changes in mood, as the city at night can be glimpsed through the large floor to ceiling windows that are a feature of the hall.

One of the things that’s very important to me in my photography is that I travel light! This is particularly handy when shooting a London wedding like David and John’s Haberdashers’ Hall wedding photography, and it means that I can remain agile and not have to worry about leaving expensive equipment around the place! When it came to David and John’s day it was great to be able to meet them at The Grange, a hotel just round the corner from St Paul’s Cathedral, and walk with them to Haberdashers’ Hall, shooting all the way along the route of course. Unencumbered by photography gear I’m able to react to situations and capture moments more naturally by blending into the wedding, and watch and listen for the things that really matter to me, like the tears and laughter during the ceremony or the sometimes risqué jokes and reactions during the speeches. What none of the guests were expecting, and what took a bit of planning on the part of the DJ, the MC and myself, was the surprise appearance of George Michael half way through David and John’s first dance!

 

“David and I are just coming back down to earth after our wedding – we enjoyed every minute and wish we could do it all again really! Thank you again so much for being our photographer.” John + David
