Wedding Photographer at Chelsea Register Office and Hixter in London

I was the wedding photographer last Saturday for Rebecca and Greg.  I took the ‘getting ready’ photographs of the bride at her flat in Clapham before heading over by taxi to Chelsea Register Office on King’s Road. This is a well known and fashionable venue to get married at, made famous by the many celebrities who have tied the knot here.

Once the family photographs had been taken on the main steps to the Town Hall the couple and I went for a walk around Chelsea.  The little streets near Chelsea Green afford some interesting backdrops with the small lanes and colourful houses. After these pictures we strolled over to the waiting wedding taxi (thoughtfully upgraded by Dora – a Bridesmaid) at the Phene Arms across the Kings Road.

A short journey later brought us to Hixter, a new restaurant in Bankside and a private room set aside for the wedding party. The food was sumptuous and visually spectacular. The main event was roast chicken cooked upside down with the longest legs I have ever seen, something of a trademark at the restaurant I understand – Swainson House Farm chicken with stuffing, chips and gravy.

Once the family photographs are over I return to shooting the reception and wedding breakfast with available light, despite the remarkably low light levels in the venue, with a Leica Noctilux I can shoot all evening without any off-putting flash.

Hi Sam, Thanks for these - were in Mexico atm and our WiFi isn’t good enough to actually download the photos....! But we’re back next week into better WiFi so will be able to look properly through them - family have said they’re brilliant though so thanks :) Many thanks again to Douglas for the excellent photos, which we’ve now had the chance to look at properly! - Bride and Groom
Hi Samantha, Douglas and team, I want to thank Douglas for his beautiful photography on my sister's wedding day - the photos are absolutely stunning and it was great to share the day with Douglas too. He was easygoing, warm and funny and I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with him! - Sister of the Bride
