Queen’s House, wedding photography Greenwich
It was a hot summer’s day for Katherine and Keith’s wedding at the Queen’s House in Greenwich. Bathed in southern light and Palladian romance, this elegant venue is the perfect setting for a wedding. From the impressive Tulip Staircase, inspiring strong architectural perspectives, to the cubic Great Hall, with its original black and white marbled floor, there is no shortage of photographic opportunity.
Guests gathered in the heart of the Queen’s House to see Katherine join Keith for their wedding ceremony. Keith’s obvious anxiety at his bride running late, was quickly consumed by a beaming smile as Katherine arrived looking radiant in her bridal gown. Following the couple, everybody headed for drinks in the the romantic Orangery and its parlours. Historical paintings and portraits of kings and queens hang proudly throughout, forming interesting backdrops for environmental portraits.
Champagne in hand, guests drifted into the outside sunshine where they enjoyed views across London’s oldest Royal Park, and the world-renowned Royal Observatory. Soft-shaded light amongst the colonnades allowed for beautiful portraits of the newly married couple.
It was then a short walk East to the Trafalgar Tavern where guests welcomed the married couple with handfuls of confetti, which they threw from its staircase.
The wedding breakfast was set to a nautical theme, and as the couple and their guests enjoyed delicious food, and were entertained by speeches, I weaved discreetly amongst the tables to capture natural expressions and the relaxed joy of the evening.
I left the Trafalgar Tavern as Katherine, Keith and their guests danced late into the night.
