A wedding in Tower Bridge London, the idea might seem unreal, but in fact it very possible and I was there to photograph Antonio and John Paul’s wedding. Surrounded by 45 of their close family and friends in the Tower Bridge historic North Tower Lounge the couple were married in the most famous bridge in the world.
Antonio and John Paul both looked very posh and handsome in their suits and despite the typically British weather they were cool to pop outside to get a few photos.
Seasoned Events, the on-site venue management and events team at Tower Bridge did their usual excellent job at making the wedding day go smoothly. It’s always a pleasure to work alongside a great team. The results of Seasoned Events, and the rest of the fab suppliers on the day was incredible. The wedding had a great vibe to it and immediately I felt very welcome, which makes my job so much easier. The supplies that made this all happen were:
Seasoned Events – Catering
The Event Hire Company – Venue Styling
Pinstripes & Peonies – Flowers
Sternberg Clarke – Music
Just 4 Linen – Linen
Congratulations on this fabulous wedding, Antonio and John Paul! I wish you a life filled with beauty, elegance, and unique, unforgettable moments, just like your wedding was!
Here’s a preview of their wedding day.
If you’re getting married at Tower Bridge and need a wedding photographer please do get in touch.
A massive thank you to all the brides and grooms who entered my Facebook competition. The response was overwhelming and I am delighted to announce Michelle and James as the winners.
Michelle and James will be getting married at the Asylum in Peckham on the 26th October 19 and will be having a Halloween themed wedding.
Meet the winners.
How Michelle and James met.
“We met years ago through friends and were friends for a few years before we actually became a couple. Mainly due to me as James was constantly telling me we were soulmates, sending me cute little gifts and flowers through the post and asking me to be his girlfriend but I’d always turn him down. I eventually gave in and from our first date we have pretty much been inseparable, so as much as I hate to admit he’s right about anything, he was definitely right about us being soulmates!”
How James proposed.
“We had been together just over two years when we got engaged. It was a complete surprise and I was not expecting him to propose at all. About a week before he’d been banging on about visiting a grave he’d heard of in a local graveyard that was rumoured have a witch buried in it. We’re both a little creepy, kooky and spooky so when he suggested we go look for it, I was super excited and totally up for it. So we got to the graveyard and went looking for the grave. He pointed one out and told me to go check if it was the one. When I turned around to tell him it was, he was down on one knee with a ring in his hand. It was completely unexpected and although it sounds a little weird to most people, being in a cemetery, next to the grave of a young witch, it was super romantic to me. Even more so because I later found out he’d been planning it for months!”
Why did you choose the Asylum?
“We chose the venue we plan to get married in as we wanted somewhere different, cool, with a slightly creepy, gothic, alternative feel to it. But also somewhere that wasn’t a church. When we saw The Asylum, we instantly knew it was just perfect for us, it suited both our personalities, it’s absolutely beautiful and has amazing stained glass windows that we love, and will also fit so well with our wedding inspiration, which is obviously Halloween!”
I’m looking forward to meeting Michelle and James and photographing their wedding.
House of Commons Wedding – Towards the end of November Barbara and Jeremy got married at the Palace of Westminster aka the House of Commons, aka Houses of Parliament, take your pick 🙂 It was a small and intimate wedding with their close family and friends.
I met up with the couple before the wedding at the Meridien Hotel on Piccadilly. The staff at the Meridien were lovely and allowed us to grab some photos in their impressive hotel. As Barbara and Jeremy were keen for some iconic photos around London we decided to use the locations on our doorstep and so headed to Piccadilly Circus and Regent Street.
As someone who is fascinated with UK history and in particular the workings of Parliament it was buzz to photograph another wedding at one of the worlds most iconic locations. I photographed a wedding earlier this year at the House of Lords and previously I photographed another wedding at the House of Commons.
The ceremony was held in The Jubilee Room, which is in the annex of Westminster Hall. After some post ceremony mingling we all walked through the historic Westminster Hall , stopping for a group photo on the steps.
I grabbed the couple for some dramatic photos in the ornate Stephen’s Hall before leaving them to enjoy their wedding breakfast in the Strangers’ Dining Room.
I’d like to thank Barbara and Jeremy for asking me to photograph their wedding. I was delighted to receive this lovely message from them on their honeymoon and am looking forward to joining them for a glass of wine very soon.
“We are currently on our honeymoon – in the middle of the Bornean jungle surrounded by Orang Utans right now- but for the past few hours we couldn’t stop going through the photos on our phones!!!!They are AMAZING!!! The Piccadilly/ Regent Street ones are beyond amazing !!!”
I hope you enjoy the photos and if you’re considering getting married at the House of Commons please do let me know.
