Queens House Greenwich Wedding Photographer
Queens House Greenwich Wedding Photography , with Sarah & Tom
This was an amazingly romantic Christmas wedding in Greenwich and the end of 2013. Inside Tom and Sarah had bought a huge Christmas tree for the picture perfect St Alfege Church — the ceremony taking place in this beautiful setting like by a soft warm light, and the St Alfege Church choir leading the carols. Outside for the walk to the majestic seventeenth century Queen’s House it was a dark, almost stormy winter’s night with Sarah’s veil billowing around her. With Tom and Sarah (who was looking stunning just days after handing in her PhD paper to add to organising a wedding) we used the grounds for the portraits. Lit only by a sodium vapour lamp for the most part, I definitely had to work for my money with these shots. But secretly I do love being challenged really, and I love the shots we achieved. Dark, atmospheric and incredibly romantic. And then inside Queen’s House itself, which, thanks to the couple, despite being imposingly grand, never felt anything less than very warm and special, almost intimate, place to have a wedding reception. The postprandial entertainment was courtesy of The Mini Big Band, who Tom had made a point of bringing all the way down from sunny Yorkshire. And you can see why in the photographs — all the guests absolutely lost themselves in the music and when I left the party was still raging in full effect.
Here are the photos of the day…

Love the gas lamp photos, and then the contrast of the bright twirly staircase. Stunning!
