Gray’s Inn in London – Last Saturday’s Wedding

The wedding celebration last Saturday for Michelle and Matthew was in central London, their wedding ceremony was in a very much sunnier Florida with close family members last year. Michelle and her bridesmaids got ready at elegant Hoxton Holborn Hotel and taxi’d the short distance to  Gray’s Inn . The reception was held in the gardens and the guests were refreshed with champagne and canapes, we managed to get through the formal photographs in good time and even managed a shot of everyone, from a stone flight of stairs. The main hall is a splendid venue for a wedding breakfast, speeches, cake cutting and first dance, and the full website of images can be seen here – Gray’s Inn London Wedding Photography and a few favourites here – Favourite Gray’s Inn Images

A few from the day are below –

Sometimes the magic isn't there. It was the juxtaposition of such a glamorous dress, gloves and hairstyle with her look of abject boredom that grabbed my attention. - Douglas Fry, Photographer

Wedding at Chelsea Register Office and afterwards in Barnes

On a sunny day in Central London, Alicia and Harry tied the knot at the famous Chelsea Register Office on the Kings Road.

Alicia and her entourage were getting ready, very sensibly given London traffic, just around the corner on Cheyne Row, in what was an oasis of calm, which isn’t always the case at bridal preparation. The service itself was naturally a very happy occasion and the obligatory family photographs were taken on the famous steps outside Chelsea Town Hall.

While the guest went off for refreshments, Alicia, Harry and yours truly went for a short victory lap around the colourful Chelsea streets to get some photographs of the couple alone. We found an old Mini Cooper, in a quiet pretty street and the breeze briefly gusted the bride’s veil sideways for added drama in the photographs.

The wedding reception was held at the Bulls Head in Barnes, right on the Thames in the elegant Melrose Room with canapés and champagne, followed by the wedding breakfast. The speeches were all excellent but perhaps the most surprising was the best man, who had never made a speech like this before. He made one of the best speeches I have heard in the 25 years of shooting weddings, not too long, funny and yet heart felt.

The cake decorated with two running ducks (couples’ favourite) was cut to much applause.

A fun day for me to witness and photograph a very happy wedding.
