Over the next few months I’ll be putting together a list of my favourite venues that I’ve been lucky enough to photograph at as a London wedding photographer. I’ve just returned from a trip to Tuscany and Villa Dievole was nothing short of sensational. I’ll be blogging the full wedding soon, but for now I want to concentrate on two London wedding venues.
The first is Wilton’s Music Hall. It’s one of London’s old surviving Victorian music halls which is still used for productions of music and theatre. It’s in need of funds to keep it going but part of its charm is that it’s not in tip top condition. The wedding I shot there was in January so although it’s quite a dark venue, for a winter wedding it was ideal. Every room oozes character and charm and the main music hall is a stunning space for the ceremony and dinner. It’s challenging for a photographer because of the light, but it’s also so rewarding as small pockets of light create opportunities for dramatically lit shots. Just my kind of venue.
MC Motors is an entirely different space. It’s a converted warehouse in East London and is just so conducive to a big party. It’s often used for music video and fashion shoots and as soon as you enter the building you can see why. As a London wedding venue it’s pretty unique, with it’s large open dining space as well as the very cool bar area. There’s props dotted around in every room, from mannequins to motor bikes it’s says cool in abundance! The staff here are some of the friendliest and most helpful I’ve come across and I can’t recommend the place highly enough. Check out Rachael & Tom’s MC Motors wedding here.
