London Wedding Venues
London Weddings: I LOVE them. I can’t quite put my finger on it, but there’s something so special about a wedding in the capital. It’s not because I grew up here, or have a history here, because I don’t – I literally only moved to the UK in 2012. But I knew for sure that I had to live in London if I was going to move all the way over here from South Africa! And my instincts were right; I love it.
London weddings are completely different from anything I was used to back in South Africa. There, everyone gets married in the countryside, or at vineyards, or if it’s in the city, at a venue with huge grounds, so it never feels city-ish. But in London you step right out of the registry office onto the city streets, with cars and red buses driving by, and Londoners just going about their daily lives. You can get married in, or right next to, some of the most beautiful and famous landmarks in the world. Shakespeare’s Globe. St Paul’s. The Houses of Parliament. It’s amazing, and I’m still a little blown away by it all!
I’ve been lucky enough to shoot at some amazing London wedding venues, ranging from classic city chic to quirky pubs and everything in between! It’s pretty fun to think about how many weddings must be going on in our capital every weekend – and weekdays, too! – and how many planners, venue staff, florists, caterers, musicians and photographers are getting up early and preparing for all of them. I feel really lucky to have just a little part in all that, and to work with my particular wedding couple at that moment in time to make their London wedding perfect for them.
