London is by far my favourite city and I absolutely love photographing weddings there. The variety, cultural diversity and general hustle and bustle tend to bring out the best in me. So I was really delighted when Miriam and James booked me to do their wedding photography at The Bingham Hotel in Richmond Upon Thames. This is a really great venue, an independant hotel with lots of character and intimacy right on the banks of The Thames. I was there a few years ago for Lydie and Noah’s wedding so was looking forward to going back.
I started the day with some shots of James and the boys at The Ship pub right next to The Thames and then a short 5 minute drive to Miriam’s home in Chiswick for her prep shots. And then another short drive to St Nicholas Church for the ceremony. We had the most beautiful autumn weather the whole day as well as the usual seasonal colours. Later on in the day at The Bingham as the sun dropped we experienced the most amazing light and flare. Here I managed to get some really cool panoramic shots of the river as well as some great couple shots along the towpath.
The evening celebrations started with some great speeches with amazing food and wine before a sparkler parade on the lawn. So a fantastic day all round, one I’ll always remember. It was also great to meet up with my good friends Ayla and Ian again whose wedding I photographed at Kelmarsh Hall a few years ago.
Anyhow, enough chat for now. Congratulations and many thanks to Miriam and James for arranging such an unforgettable day. Here’s some favourite images below.
