On Saturday I photographed a wedding which took place at Walthamstow Registry Office and then on to Gilwell Park in Chingford, Essex. As a wedding photographer for Hertfordshire and Essex, I was very excited about photographing this wedding for Symone and Andy, as I’d not worked at Gilwell Park before. The weather forecast was for sunshine and blue skies!


I arrived at the Bride’s parents’ home nice and early to avoid any traffic delays. I captured this lovely portrait of the flower girl using natural light on the stairs.


I captured all the details, flowers and shoes, before taking a few shots of the Bride and her family. I then went on to Walthamstow Registry which was about 15 minutes drive, where I capture the pre-wedding activity and the Bride’s arrival and she looked fabulous!

Walthamstow Registry has a great wedding suite and also some lovely gardens, which was a good surprise for me as it really did exceed all my expectations.

I took a few group photographs at the registry office and the confetti shots before moving on to Gilwell Park.


Gilwell Park was about a 20 minute drive from Walthamstow and is surrounded by trees and fields, the perfect setting for a wedding.

We had our 2nd ceremony of the day, this time it was a blessing as Gilwell Park could hold a lot more guests than the registry office.

After the ceremony I captured some more casual shots, another aerial group shot and some photographs with the Groom and Groomsmen.

I captured the wedding breakfast room laid out, all the details and the speeches. Then it was time to cut the cake and took the couple around for some romantic shots.

I noticed some golden sunlight just shinning through the trees as the sun started to go down and couldn’t resist taking this lovely shot.


We had time for a few more photographs before the couple’s first dance. I was really impressed with their dance routine and it was truly one of the best I’ve seen.
