Fulham Palace – A Versatile Wedding Venue

 A Variety of Wedding Spaces

Fulham Palace is one of the more versatile wedding venues that I work at. It has a variety of rooms and spaces that can be used for one or more aspects of a wedding day and for the wedding photography.

The grounds of Fulham Palace have lawns, woodland and a very picturesque walled garden and there is also a nearby walk along the banks of the Thames.

Inside the house there are some very photogenic areas including the main stairway from the bridal room and the beautiful chapel which can be used for wedding blessings.

These next three images show the Bishop Terrick’s Drawing Room which has gorgeous natural light and can be used for ceremonies or as a break out room. As you can see below, it also makes an excellent location for a bar.

The Great Hall is the centre of the Palace and is used for ceremonies, as a dining room and also for the evening’s festivities.

The marquee which is located in the Chaplain’s Garden can be used for the wedding breakfast and then adapted later with the addition of a dance floor.

The Courtyard at Fulham Palace, which is the first area the wedding guests will see, is a great area to host a drinks reception. And, as you can see, with the addition of some creative lighting, offers a wonderful backdrop for a portrait of the bride and groom.

Wedding Flowers at Nonsuch Mansion

Beautiful Bridal Flowers

Here are some beautiful bridal flowers I photographed recently at Nonsuch Mansion. The florist who created this unusual display was Michelle Rust who has worked with me on many occasions. What I love about these wedding flowers is that, whilst they are beautifully simple and unfussy, you can see that a lot of time and creativity has gone into producing the display.

The whole feel is of wild and natural English country flowers which really suits the style and atmosphere at Nonsuch Mansion.

The flowers brighten up a showery day!

Emi and Sho on the Vera Wang wedding dress blog

 

Back in July I photographed the wedding of Emi and Sho at Nonsuch Mansion. Emi wore a gorgeous Vera Wang wedding dress and so beautiful did Emi look in that dress that the guys who edit the Vera Wang wedding dress blog asked if they could run a feature about her wedding and her dress.

You can see my original blog entry for Emi’s wedding here and the full gallery here. I would also recommend you take a look at their fabulous engagement shoot which we captured in Regents Park.
