Emily & Charlie – Garden Museum Wedding Photographer
Garden Museum Wedding Photography / London Wedding Photographer
This was another belter of a London wedding, and one which crossed the city’s north-south divide. Proceedings kicked off with a traditional Catholic ceremony at the impressive St Dominic’s Priory, on Haverstock Hill in Hampstead. A beautiful church to shoot in – atmospheric with soaring ceilings and flattering light. After the vows everyone piled into a couple of double deckers for a whistle stop tour of London landmarks (Piccadilly Circus, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament) en route to the Garden Museum in Lambeth. It’s a glorious place to hold a wedding reception – right next door to Lambeth Palace and slap bang on the River Thames. It’s perfectly placed for stealing 20 minutes away from the hurly burly of the day to take some relaxed bride and groom portraits on the river, while guests enjoy a drink and a catch up and get the party started. The museum itself has the most amazing gardens – a mixture of formal and relaxed planting, with lots of lovely summer blooms right now. There was space enough for a steel band to play and for guests to get stuck into a spot of cricket as the cocktails flowed. The floral theme continued inside the museum with an amazing ceiling decoration of dried flowers and some very special table centerpieces, housed under glass domes – like floral taxidermy. Thoroughly appropriate for the Garden Museum and very lovely indeed.
It was my first time shooting here and it’s a great choice of venue for anyone planning a large London wedding. It’s centrally located, beautiful inside and out, and the space is flexible enough to work whatever the weather (and that is worth it’s weight in gold, for any couple tying the knot in this country).
We’ve been wowing everyone with the pics – everyone loves them! Thanks again, you really made our day – Em
