Wedding Photography St Pauls

Wedding photographs can sometimes be a little misleading and in the case of the beautiful wedding of Miss Amelia Plant and Major Mike Taylor MBE at St Pauls Cathedral in London, this was very much the case. Looking through the photos you would be forgiven that this was a lovely warm Spring day. Everybody looks so happy and joyful to be outside very much enjoying the sunshine, though this wedding will be remembered for many things, including the brutally arctic cold winds. Look carefully at the photographs of Amelia and you will see goosebumps on her arms. It was ferociously cold. And yet Amelia cast off any feelings of chilliness and braved the winds as if it were a warm sunny day!! I felt super guilty in my warm Aquascutum coat while Amelia’s teeth literally chattered. How Amelia managed to produce smiles and laughter is still beyond me. Mike though, being a Commando and Arctic trained, was well versed in dealing with a bit of chilly breeze!!  In spite of the cold, it was an spellbinding day. Shooting wedding photography at St Pauls Cathedral is every wedding photographers dream ticket. This place is one of my all time favourite haunts ever since I visited it as a little boy with my Great Aunt Kit! Though shooting wedding photography at St Pauls Cathedral comes with some very strict caveats. Absolutely no photographs at all once the bride and her father has entered the chapel, so we were forced to sit out the wedding outside and shoot some very voyeuristic photographs through the glass doors at the rear of the chapel….when the virger and priest were not looking in my direction. Nevertheless I managed to capture some very special moments and once the service was complete the Guards of Honour formed two neat lines and lifted their swords up high as Amelia + Mike filed out of the Cathedral. The reception that they were given by the 200+ strong crowd on the pavement was unlike that I have ever seen before and my guess is that many of the tourists believed that what they were witnessing was the marriage of celebrity couple. It was a super wedding and the wedding reception took place at The HAC Honourable Artillery Corp in the City of London, which is a fab venue for a reception. The speeches were truly memorable especially that of Mike’s best man, Major Lorne McMonagle. I am thrilled to say that this stunning wedding was featured on the blog Pocketful of Dreams.
