Syon Park Wedding Photography

Syon Park Wedding Photography

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged a full wedding, but I’m back today with one of my favourite weddings of last year. What follows is just a small selection of my favourite shots, giving you a flavour of my photographic style and Anthony and Alannah’s Syon Park wedding photography and wedding ceremony at Epsom College.

Arriving at the bride’s beautiful family home in the morning, I was confronted with a hive of activity and the whirring noise of hairdryers, expertly wielded by hair and makeup artist Amanda White and her team. This kind of cacophony of sound and chatter (notice I didn’t use the word chaos!) might put some photographers off, but I absolutely love the photographic opportunities that it creates, and with such beautiful natural light as this, it really is a dream to photograph.

There is so much joy throughout the wedding day, as I hope you can see in the rest of the pictures, but moments like the one below of their daughter having her hair done, are also really important I feel. To me they act as a kind of counterpoint to the quieter, happier moments in the day, like Alannah’s mum helping her into her Claire Pettibone dress , and if anything take the viewer on a bit more of a journey.

After Anthony and Alannah’s wedding ceremony at Epsom College where they had both met as students, we all made the short trip to Syon Park. If you haven’t already been, I would encourage anyone to go for the day. It’s open to the public, and whether you’re getting married or not, the house and gardens will take your breath away. It’s certainly a wedding venue that is on most photographer’s bucket lists! 

After an initial drinks reception in the courtyard we well all led down to the glasshouse by the band were I had time to make some 4×5 large format film portraits of the couple before they sat down to a stunning menu prepared by Create. One of the most amazing features of holding the reception in a space like the glasshouse is that as evening approaches and the speeches began, the mood of the lighting had totally changed. Before we knew it the day was drawing to an end and the band Hand Fulla Soul came on to get the party going. A huge thank you must also go to my good friend Davina of Image Bliss Photography who helped out as my second photographer on the day.

    That first shot during the bridal preps really caught my eye, you’ve framed that beautifully

      Thanks Neil, It is a nice scene setting image isn’t it. At times like this I tend to think how a film maker would construct the opening scene to a film.
