Tudor Barn Eltham, wedding photographer
Claire & Nadeem’s summer wedding took place at the Tudor Barn, Eltham, South East London. I have been lucky enough to have photographed a number of times here before. The Tudor Barn is a Grade 2 16th century listed building built by the family of William Roper and links back to King Henry VIII and the Tudor Monarchy. Then Tudor Barn is situated in the Royal Borough of Greenwich just 20 minutes from central London. With its exposed beams, oak flooring and expansive, well kept gardens this is an excellent wedding venue.
I started my coverage at Claire’s flat, shooting the getting ready stage – everything seemed quite calm at this stage. Claire and Nadeem wanted a relaxed, reportage coverage of their day, with a some family group shots in the Tudor Barn’s gardens. After the ceremony champagne was served and the reception began. Soon enough we were in the summer sunshine taking a stroll around the gardens for some couple portraits, looking for some shaded areas too avoid the glare of the direct sun.
As always I photographed a lot of reportage pictures, quietly observing what was going on and the interaction between family and guests. These pictures tell the real story of the day and in my experience are the photographs that my clients look back on with greater fondness.
