Beautiful Riverside Wedding in the Heart of London

Jack is an absolutely brilliant photographer and exceptionally skilled at managing to capture and tell the story of a wedding day. Looking back at the photographs, we were able to see all the wonderful moments, glances, laughs and chatter that happened throughout the day that we missed or that didn’t fully sink in. We particularly appreciated meeting up with him a couple of times in the lead up to the wedding - it meant every thing ran smoothly, everyone knew what type of photographs were important to capture and critically it meant the group photos were quick!Not only a brilliant photographer but Jack is an extremely nice man and it was a pleasure to have him taking photographs for us on our wedding day. We are extremely happy with them all and they continue to provide us with wonderful memories.
— Alex & Matt

Over the years I have photographed quite a few weddings that in some way use the river Thames as a backdrop. Alex and Matt's wonderful day was no exception, taking place in two venues that are on the banks of the city's historic river.I love walking around London and had often been passed St Mary's in Battersea. It's a beautiful church by the river and I'd been longing to photograph a wedding there. As a documentary photographer, I really love shooting at new venues. It allows me to see them with a fresh pair of eyes.

On the day, I arrived in time to capture Matt and his ushers gathering outside the church to welcome the guests arriving for the ceremony.Once the church was full, Alex and her father arrived in a vintage 1950's Citroen. As she excitedly looked out of the window at the waiting vicar and bridesmaids, I got one of my favourite images of the day, her looking out and others reflected in the polished side of the card. Her friends straightened out her stunning wedding dress (made by Eliza Jane Howell) on the steps of the church and then made her way down the aisle accompanied by her proud Dad.It was a lovely service and I don't think the couple stopped smiling throughout the whole thing! It's a great church for wedding photographers as there are lots of good vantage points to capture the action including the magnificent wrap around balcony.

After the ceremony, the crowd showered the newly weds with confetti as they left the church. And as the wedding guests boarded two vintage double decker buses, Alex and Matt went to the riverside for some speedy portraits.I joined the wedding guests in one of the buses and snapped away as we were whisked to the reception at Westminster Boat House. It's a fantastic venue for a reception. The Pavilion extends over the river, with floor to ceiling windows all round to provide dazzling views up and down the Thames. The guests were welcomed by the wedding party in a receiving line and then drinks were served on the veranda.

It was a beautiful place to celebrate their wedding and the couple stole away for a few minutes before dinner to take in the view of Battersea Power Station. After dinner and some hilarious speeches, everyone piled onto the dancefloor for the live band. As I walked home along the river, I could hear the music drifting into the night - I should imagine they were dancing well into the small hours!

CONGRATULATIONS ALEX & MATT!
