Stylish Bank of England Sports Centre wedding with a ceilidh

Well, so much for weekly blog posts then! I had such excellent intentions at the beginning of this year to keep up my blog posts each week, including posts about the weddings that I shoot, general wedding advice and the occasional local supplier interview. And then, wedding season happened. Wow, what a whirlwind! I have shot so many beautiful, unique and creative weddings this summer and I can’t wait for you to see them all.

Rachel and Jonny’s Surrey wedding ceremony

Rachel and Jonny got married at St Mary the Virgin Church in Worcester Park in Surrey. What a beautiful Church! Rachel looked stunning in her Mori Lee wedding dress with her pink bouquet from Imagine Flowers in New Malden. It was a lovely ceremony with readings from several of their close friends to give it a personal touch. After the ceremony everyone jumped in their cars and headed straight over to the Bank of England Sports Centre for the wedding reception.

Wedding at Bank of England Sports Centre

The Bank of England Sports Centre in Roehampton is a gorgeous looking building which made a great backdrop for Rachel and Jonny’s couple portraits when we arrived. There are some lovely grounds to walk around, and we even got to pop out again in the golden hour before sunset to get some more portraits in the beautiful light at that time of day.

Time for some dancing

This was just the second time that I have shot a wedding where there has been a ceilidh (the first time was at Gillian and Alex’s Millbridge Court wedding!) and honestly it just looks like SO MUCH fun!! It’s quite mad, and both times I have been slightly scared of enthusiastic dancers crashing into me, but it’s that madness that makes it so brilliant. It’s a fantastic way to encourage everyone onto the dance floor, so if you like a bit of country dancing I would highly recommend it.

And finally…

I’m going to be exhibiting at the National Wedding Show at the Excel in London on 21st and 22nd October, so if you are interested in chatting with me and seeing some more of my recent work then do come along and visit me! Get in touch via my Contact page if you would like to discuss your wedding photography with me. I look forward to hearing from you!
