RSA London wedding photographer
I’m an accredited supplier to The Royal Society of Arts and familiar with its interiors, which meant I could approach Jim and Natali’s wedding with a certain confidence.
So, as family and guests gathered in the Benjamin Franklin room, I headed upstairs for some pre-ceremony shots of Natali and her bridesmaids as they finished getting ready. Meanwhile, downstairs, the gents (Jim had two best men) were finding last minute preparations less straight-forward, with a buttonhole proving rather tricky. Drawn, as I am, to realism, and always striving to capture the truth, this struck me as an obvious moment to photograph, revealing a couple of nice images.
Once married, and with the sun shining, I led the party outside for a big group shot. I often use the steps leading to the Strand for this as I can tier guests and ensure that everyone is included. The couple and I then walked along John Adam Street to the Strand where I took portraits before a busy London backdrop. We returned inside for champagne, and back to the Benjamin Franklin room for the wedding breakfast where entertaining speeches were made by Jim’s actor friends.
Finally, the wedding party headed to the Vaults for dancing; parents particularly keen to dance the night away as the band played.
Here are some images of the day, including that buttonhole moment:
