As a Carlton Mitre Hotel wedding photographer, I wanted to capture a couple of shots of the venue itself. I started the day on the opposite side of the Thames. And took the opportunity to grab a photo of the hotel. It’s a beautiful venue. Nestled in amongst the green trees, just next to the bridge, and the photo looks great. At the end of the night, as I made my way home, I stopped on the other side of the bridge again and took another photo of the venue. This time, the venue was lit up at night, and the bright lights are reflected in the Thames, it’s a beautiful image.
Sam and Tom had put a lot of effort into organising their big day and choosing the theme. They wanted to be able to appreciate the scene afterwards, knowing they wouldn’t get much chance to on the day, so asked me to take some photographs of the set up before everyone arrived.
Sam and Tom asked me to use documentary style photography to capture the event. I worked my way around the celebration, taking photographs of the guests chatting. As well as the bride and groom stealing a quiet moment, and the dance floor full of friends at the end of the night.
I took some reportage style photographs of Sam and her bridesmaids getting ready. They were all really excited about the day ahead. I followed Sam and her father out to the car, and took some snaps as they were driving off. Then I had to beat them to the venue. I managed to get a few photos of Tom waiting at the altar, greeting their friends and family before the wedding. As we waited for Sam to arrive, I took a photograph of her bridesmaids waiting with her flower girl.
After the ceremony, we took some posed photos of Sam and Tom in the gardens of the church. After that we headed back to the Carlton Mitre Hotel. Sam and Tom had asked me to capture the wedding breakfast, and the speeches in particular, so there’s quite a few shots of that section of the wedding. After the meal, I suggested we head outside for a couple of quick photographs on the Thames. The sun was starting to set, the sky was beginning to darken, and the resulting photos are beautiful. One of my favourite photos is of Sam and Tom’s embracing shadows against the bridge, you can see the Thames in the background as evening creeps in, it’s just beautiful.
