Traditional St.Mary Le Bow Church Wedding

St.Mary Le Bow in Cheapside is a wonderful venue for a London church wedding. The St.Mary Le Bow church was damaged by the great fire of London which, in my books makes it pretty damn old! Similar to St Bartholomews Church in Smithfield, St. Mary Le Bow Church is ancient, dark and romantic. Sam and Ellie wanted a traditional London church wedding. A fabulous reception followed the St.Mary Le Bow church wedding hosted by The Crypt Bleeding Heart in Ely Place.

London Wet and Rainy Wedding

Some of my favourite and most romantic wedding I have ever photographed have been in pouring rain. There is something wonderfully romantic about huddling under an umbrella. To be frank, if you are planning a wedding in London in October having a wet weather contingency is vital. Ellie and Sam booked an iconic London church and a candlelight reception venue (The Crypt on Ely Place) with minimal movement between venues – perfect. We managed to coordinate confetti outside the St. Mary Le Bow, guests sheltering under brollies. The walk to the wedding reception at Ely Place – just around the corner from Cheapside gave me a wonderful opportunity for unposed and natural wedding portraits.

Wedding Reception at The Crypt Bleeding Heart on Ely Place

The Crypt, on Ely Place is literally underneath St. Ethaldredas Church. I have photographed some beautiful weddings at St. Etheldredas so it was a real pleasure to be back. This Ely Place wedding reception venue is a bit of a hidden gem. Warm romantic and moody lighting, delish food and a decent dance-floor and bar make The Crypt Bleeding Heart a popular wedding reception venue. I floated about the reception capturing unposed and natural reportage. The speeches were moving and amusing in equal measure and before long Ellie and Sam were first dancing.
