Bloomsbury wedding

Reportage wedding photography at Bloomsbury House

A London wedding for Jane and Henrik, bringing together family and friends from around the world. Hong Kong, Singapore, USA and Norway – plus more. All came for an emotional wedding ceremony at Bloomsbury House, in the heart of London (a stone’s throw from the British Museum). But first the prep, not the bride this time, the groom. Henrik and his friends, getting ready at The Sloane Club, in Chelsea. I arrived early, Henrik was already set to go…the videographer did get him to a do a bit of a re-run of his dressing, for the camera, when she arrived. Then it was into a taxi and across town, to Bloomsbury House.

Wedding ceremony at Bloomsbury House

With a celebrant, Miranda, rather than a registrar, it was a ceremony about the couple, rather than the legal bureaucracy of signing registers, etc. Their own vows, which led to hankerchiefs all round – Henrik set everyone off first I think? After the ceremony – a few quick pictures in the square opposite (not the most exciting weather/light but some pigeons!). Then drinks in the ceremony room. An hour later, a surprise for the guests – two old red routemaster buses, to take them on a tour of London landmarks, before heading to the dinner venue in Clapham.

Metro Garden, Clapham

The venue for the evening and dinner, the Metro Garden restaurant near Clapham Common. Drinks in the garden, with some speeches – then more speeches, scattered amongst the meal. Amidst also the clanging of cutlery on glasses, instructing the bride and groom to stand on their bench and kiss! A surprise for Jane this time, a Beatles song, sung by several of the wedding guests.

Here are a few images from the day…

Very nice pictures and Photography Style, greatings from Vienna.

We honestly couldn’t have picked a better photographer to capture the happiest, most important day in our lives. Martin is a visionary; he doesn’t just shoot what’s in front of him, but adds his own vision to the scene and infuses each shot with incredible atmosphere.

The photos he delivered to us afterwards didn’t just show the big and unforgettable moments of the day, but also the quieter, fleeting moments of beauty that we would’ve missed if it hadn’t been for his images. For someone who just met us on the day itself, it is astounding how well he managed to capture our personalities and the dynamics between people. There are images of us as a couple and images between grandfather and grandson and friends with friends that we will cherish for a lifetime.

Thank you for your amazing work, Martin. We are forever grateful for your artistry.
