Of all the wonderful venues that I’m lucky enough to work in as a London Wedding Photographer, Chelsea Old Town Hall has to be up there as one of my favourites. Not only is it the most wonderful building inside, but it’s also pretty fantastic on the outside too! The iconic steps, which many a happy couple have walked down after tying the knot, are perfect for that must-have confetti shot, often one of my favourite images of the day. Also the hustle and bustle of the King’s Road is the perfect counterpoint for the emotion-filled wedding service inside this fabulous register office. And it’s great fun to hear the shouts of well wishers and the honking of car horns as the new Mr and Mrs emerge from the building.
Another great thing about the location of Chelsea Old Town Hall is it’s proximity to all the great restaurants of King’s Road, so the newly weds don’t have far to travel to start their wedding celebrations.
That was certainly the case for a recent wedding I photographed there, when the beautiful intimate service was followed by a delightful reception at the Medlar Restaurant on the King’s Road.
The Medlar is a lovely venue for a wedding reception and the guests made their way from the service following the bride and groom down the King’s Road. We stopped briefly during the short walk to grab some shots of the happy couple as they began their celebrations. I love doing portraits in this part of Chelsea – from the shabby chic blue doorway just around the corner from the Chelsea Old Town Hall to the bus stops at various points on the King’s Road – all the backgrounds were perfect for this very elegant London Wedding.
