LONDON, one of the greatest cities in the world, chock full of the most amazing wedding venues, and just a short commuter ride away.
Every Saturday, indeed most Fridays and Sundays too, there must be hundreds of weddings taking place all over our great capital city. That’s hundreds of brides nervously waking from about two hours sleep, hundreds of fathers asking over and over again “is everyone ok for tea and toast” and hundreds of groomsmen starting drinking at around 10 o’clock in the morning! All across London too wedding venues will be swinging into action, laying tables, setting up sound systems and setting up Chuppahs. I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph at many London wedding venues, from the traditional the the quirky.
Living within such easy reach of London means that the city has always been an inspiration to me ever since I can remember.
I’ve also been fortunate enough to have exhibited in some of London’s galleries and I still enjoying discovered new parts of the city though my photography. The city seems to infuse every wedding that I photograph with a kind of energy and excitement that is so addictive. Quirky venues such as Leadenhall Market, The Gherkin and the platform at St. Pancras Station, or the grandeur of Dartmouth House or St. Paul’s Cathedral are a dream for any photographer to shoot.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the space and tranquillity of a rural setting, but I always look forward to the cut and thrust of a London wedding. The city suites my reportage style of photography particularly well. London has provided the backdrop to so many great images from the history of photography. Below is some of my most recent London wedding photography. My small contribution to the photographic history of London if you will!
