London Wedding Photographer
The thing I like most about being a London wedding photographer is that, apart from working in one of the most photogenic cities in the world, the couples that come to me quite often aren’t themselves from the UK.
This wedding at The Museum of the Order of St John is a good example. Johannes and Jane are from Germany and Thailand respectively and pretty much all the guests were from one of those two countries. The couple met when both working in the City of London and, as you can see, were expecting their first child not long after their wedding day!
The wedding ceremony was held in the inspiring Chapter Hall “with its grand fireplace, vivid stained glass windows, chandelier from the Farnese Palace in Rome and collection of paintings from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries, is an impressive yet welcoming ceremonial space for up to 100 guests….”
After the ceremony the newlyweds and their guests took a short walk to the adjacent Memorial Garden, an area, belonging to the museum, laid out with scented flowers and medicinal herbs. Here we took a few family photographs and some portraits of the couple themselves.
Whilst the guests made their way to the reception venue, a fabulous Portuguese restaurant called Portal, Johannes and Jane wandered around the local streets of Clerkenwell as I captured some more informal photographs.
Once they arrived at Portal the party began and everybody enjoyed a gorgeous wedding breakfast followed by a little (non-strenuous!) dancing.
