Earlier this month saw me at Islington Town Hall and then onto the Crypt of St Etheldreda to photograph the wedding of Helen & Mark. With remarkable good planning and foresight Mark had booked the last slot of the day. What this meant was that we pretty much had full run of the Town Hall to ourselves without any other wedding parties. We put this to good use after the service with some shots in the very impressive Council Chamber, the grand central staircase and some of the corridors. After some confetti and group shots we were off to St Etheldreda’s. I am indebted to the Best Man for telling me that St. Etheldreda’s is the oldest Catholic church in England and one of only two remaining buildings in London from the reign of Edward I. I know Mark works quite close by in the City having meet him for coffee, cake and a planning meeting some months previously in Fleet Street. So I was keen to get a few shots of the happy couple out and about in the city that might have some resonance for them. After our quick excursion we got back for some very entertaining speeches, the Best Man discharging his duties admirably!
I had a fantastic day with Helen and Mark who looked after me, helped me plan and made my job super easy. St Etheldreda’s was a great venue and the staff ( all of whom were French) couldn’t do enough to help (oui, je le pense vraiment!). I look forward to being able to return both Islington Town Hall and St Etheldreda’s one day for more wedding photography fun. So here’s a few photos from the day – enjoy!
