2014 was quite a Year for weddings, 48 in total and the very last one for me was just before Christmas at Eltham Palace. Well actually the ceremony itself was at the Lithuanian Church in E2 and the Wedding Reception was held at Eltham Palace.
Rebecca and Ian chose Eltham Palace as their wedding venue not only because of its stunning art deco interior and the wow factor of the Grand Hall but also because it’s local for them. Also, it’s local for me too, in fact it’s an 8 minute drive away which is pretty neat. I wasn’t covering bridal prep so started shooting at the Church. The Lithuanian Church has special meaning to Rebecca as many of her family have been married in the church.
It was a bitterly cold day but also very bright and crisp, a perfect winters day. The sun was exceptionally bright but clever positioning of the camera ensured the images took on a glowing feel.
After taking a few candids outside the Church my assistant (Bernard Pretorius) and I jumped into our cars and drove the 25 minute journey to Eltham Palace. The sunset that day was pretty epic and typically the best bit of the sunset happened just as I was at the Blackwall Tunnel. Anyway, I was hoping to capture the last flings of the sunset and luckily we did.
The Great Hall at Eltham Palace was looking particular stunning and all credit goes to the couple for their vision and the staff at the Palace for turning it into reality.
Thank you to Rebecca and Ian for asking me to be their Eltham Palace Wedding photographer. Also thanks to my good friend Bernard for helping on the day.
Here’s a few photos from Rebecca and Ian wedding day at Eltham Palace.
