Well you can imagine how excited we were when Nye and Helen contacted us about shooting their wedding at Lincoln’s Inn in London. A mutual friend put them in touch with us, as he had been on the same course as Helen when training to be a solicitor. Nye is also a barrister so they had the privilege of using this stunning venue for their wedding reception.
I must admit I had to do a bit of research here to discover the exact nature of an organisation, that previously, I’d only briefly heard of. Lincoln’s Inn is one of the four surviving ‘Inns of Court’ – essentially professional associations of barristers.
The couple didn’t have the service at Lincoln’s Inn but they chose a lovely venue Located in South Kensington, 170 Queen’s Gate. Designed by Norman Shaw and completed in 1889, the house was commissioned by Frederick Anthony White, a wealthy cement manufacturer with an interest in art and architecture. The building is now home to the President & Rector of Imperial College London.
Helen g0t ready for her big day in the company of her Mum, close friends, bridesmaids and of course us. She was very relaxed and clearly excited for the days events. We captured some beautiful photographs especially of Helen in her gown which was stunning.
Then a walk across the road and it was time for the service, afterwards the guests enjoyed a glass of bubbly in the garden before heading off on a big red bus for Lincoln’s Inn. I travelled with the wedding party capturing some of the atmosphere .
Arriving at Lincoln’s Inn we didn’t have a lot of time so rattled through the group shots then whisked the couple away for the all important romantic shots. The venue didn’t disappoint with interesting backdrops , my absolute favourite photographs are in the arches, Helen on the stairs and the spinning shots showing off that wonderful gown.
We stayed until the first dance, coming home exhausted but over the moon with the images we captured.
