London Wetlands Centre Wedding Photography

I was delighted to be asked to photograph Olivia and Matt’s wedding and to be their London Wetland Centre wedding photographer. The day started for me in Barnes, a leafy Borough of London close to the river thames and home to many conservation areas and parks. I love photographing weddings in this part of London. It’s very local to me and is an area I know very well. A great area for getting away from the bustle of London not to mention plenty of great restaurants and pubs. The views aren’t too shabby either!

I met Olivia at her parents home in Barnes. It was such a lovely relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. It made my job of capturing the morning preparations an absolute pleasure. Thank you to Olivia and the family for making me feel so welcome. While I was in Barnes, Deji my second shooter for the day was capturing Matt getting ready with his family in Hammersmith.

Olivia arrived looking majestic at the church and was walked down the aisle by her father. A really lovely ceremony took place with the most amazing choir and musical arrangement I’ve ever heard. I was totally blown away by how entertaining the ceremony was. Hats off to all of those involved. Afterwards everyone gathered outside for a confetti run through the church grounds before heading off to the Wetlands Centre.

The London Wetland Centre is only a 10 minute walk from the church, a lovely walk in the summer sunshine. The guests then gathered in the Observatory which looks over the wetlands with the London skyline as the backdrop. What a great way to enjoy your canap√©’s and a glass of champagne. you can also do a spot of bird watching! There are lots of open spaces at the wetlands centre which brings many photo opportunities as you take a stroll in the grounds. This is a must to make full use of this beautiful venue. With all the formal photos out of the way it was then time to get the party started. Here are some of the photos that I took from the day.
