Wedding Photography - Sally & Lance - Chandos House

Sally & Lance - Chandos House, Central London

Sally & Lance are the loveliest couple and both very smart cookies! Lance is an astrophysicist and Sally is a Doctor. They chose the exquisite Chandos House for their wedding and reception.

Chandos House, a beautiful Georgian Townhouse that was built by Georgian Britain's most prominent architect, Robert Adam, between 1769 - 1771. The House has been the home to Dukes, Counts and Barons in the centuries since opening and is now one of the finest London wedding venues for both ceremonies and receptions. It is one of the most idyllic wedding venues in London. Located in a quiet haven to the north of Oxford Street, between Mayfair and Marylebone, these enviable central London wedding venues are the perfect place to celebrate the start of a new life among friends and family.

Anytime I work in central London I have to make sure that whatever I need for the days wedding I am able to carry on the train and tube, check train times and factor in some contingence time for a quick coffee on route.

It was a beautiful day and the journey to town was effortless. I arrived at Chandos and went to find Charlotte ( one of the nicest wedding coordinators ), dump my equipment, check details for the day with her and make my way to their very nice tea stash for a quick brew, before making my way to Sally's room. Sally was looking radiant as I entered the room with her maid-of-honour and Mum there ready to jump on Sally's every request. Their was a wonderful feeling of excitement in the room with people coming and going, makeup and hair getting finished and then in the time honoured tradition - a bottle of pop to calm the nerves! Which if Sally had she most definitely wasn't showing.

It was a lovely ceremony and a privilege to be part of which was followed by canapes and plonk, which seemed to go down very well with their friends and family. The weather had turned slightly and it was decided to make a quick dash to the front of Chandos to tick off the small amount of formal shots before the weather got much worse.

The meal was amazing as is the norm from the kitchen of Chandos. After the meal and speeches came the evening reception, Sally & Lance had booked a saxophonist to play along side the DJ and it created a great spectacle that drew people to the dance floor. I love it when I can get amongst people pulling some crazy shapes! What a wedding, what a venue and what a job I have.

Wedding Photography - Katie & Nicholas - The Bull's Head

Katie & Nicholas - The Bull's Head, Chislehurst

 

It was a beautiful day for the wedding of Katie & Nicholas, who had chosen to get married and celebrate at the Bull's Head in Chislehurst. The Bull's Head dates back to the 18th century and is situated in a very picturesque part of Chislehurst.

The bridal suite was amazing and the perfect backdrop to all the hair, makeup and giddy excitement that ensued. There is a massive four posted bed that help to create some very stylish portraits of the wedding party and Katie herself. Katie had the most unique wedding shoes that one of her friends had created with loads of cut out Disney characters covering the whole of the shoes surface. Katies Father was great and boy was this guy emotional seeing his beautiful daughter take the next chapter in her life for the first time. You can't help but get a lump in your throat, seeing the bond they have and the love he has for her.

After bridal prep I shot down stairs to see Nicholas and his groomsmen, all looking very sharp in their navy blue suites. If Nicholas was nervous he was definitely not showing any signs on the outside. Before I knew it the guest were starting to arrive and the moment for Katie to make her entrance was fast approaching. There was a great mix of young and old, family and friends who made their presence known by cheering and clapping the newly weds.

There was a welcome drinks reception in the grounds and after a select few formal shots Katie, Nicholas and myself went for a small walk to get some natural portraits shots. We walked through the grounds of Chislehurst church which was directly behind the Bull's Head and treated us to lush greenery and an avenue of trees.

Ric Machin had been booked and was busy penning his wonderful caricatures of the guests as we arrived back. The meal and speeches all went off without a hitch and the evening was spent cutting some moves on the dance floor with their friends.
