I knew that I was going to absolutely love Emily and Dom’s Morden Hall wedding, and I was not wrong. I’d had such a brilliant time with them when I did their pre-wedding couple shoot at their home in South London last summer on one of the hottest days of the year. We got on really well, they are so fun and sweet, and they made me some delicious banana pancakes too! I’d been looking forward to their wedding ever since and it was my last wedding of 2018 back in November.
Morden Hall wedding
Morden Hall is a stunning wedding venue in South London. I was excited to shoot there for the first time as it’s a beautiful building on lovely grounds, and what made it even more personal for me is that it’s actually where my parents got married! It was funny recognising the building from photos taken at their wedding before I was born. The interior is beautiful and there is a gorgeous room upstairs that can be used for photos if the weather is a bit rainy.
It rained for a lot of the day at Emily and Dom’s Morden Hall wedding, which isn’t surprising for November, but we were really keen to get some photos outside. We realised that the rain had stopped, so we grabbed a couple of umbrellas and headed outside. We timed it really well and had about 10 minutes before the rain started again in earnest and we had to head back in, but we got some gorgeous portraits in that time!
The moments I loved most throughout this wedding were; the pure emotion on Emily’s dad’s face when he saw her for the first time, the huge grins that Emily and Dom both had throughout the ceremony (and the whole day really!), the gorgeous confetti photos we got just before the rain began, the huge laughs from the top table during the speeches, and when Emily and Dom discovered their friends on the dance floor on their way to a group photo and stopped for a quick boogie. I also loved that they provided every guest with a hangover kit as their favours – what a brilliant idea! They were such a warm, fun bunch of people and this was a truly gorgeous wedding.
