I first photographed a wedding at Chelsea Old Town Hall in 2009, in fact it was the first wedding I photographed. With 125+ weddings under my belt since then it was a pleasure to go back to photograph at this intimate registry office. I now only live a few miles down the road in Shepherds Bush so I know the area very well, and it is a lovely area of West London to get married.
The wedding of Eleni & Pete was a wonderful and intimate day that I look back on very fondly. Every one had a smile on their face and the day was very relaxed and enjoyable. Pete is a restaurateur and was kind enough to give me a seat at one of their tables for a fantastic 5 course lunch at Picture restaurant on Great Portland Street. It really was amazing! Being seated amongst the guests is always a huge benefit as I just become another guest, and I really think it helps in the documentary photography I enjoy so much as the people around me are far more relaxed with my presence.
In the evening it was on to Barsmith on St John Street in Farringdon for msic, drinks, dancing a and speeches! Congratulations to Eleni and Pete, what a great day!
