It was such a wonderful experience for myself to be able to capture, and moreover be present at Caroline’s Chelsea wedding, as she married her husband Gareth.
I loved capturing the moments of her first walking down the street towards me, arriving with Gareth and their two witnesses at the offices. All smiles of course! Then the special moments from the process of the booking, through to the ceremony itself. It was lovely to capture the expressions of their witnesses too. Plus of course the ceremony end. Choosing the smaller registry room for their service, the wedding ceremony was animated and light hearted, which was well suited to both Caroline and Gareth and their relationship with each other, as well as their strong friendships with their fun loving friends Sarah and Barry.
As Caroline had chosen to do things the other way around and get legally married, after their symbolic wedding, this was a bit of fun for them and you could tell that they thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience of wedding at Chelsea Town Hall.
Registries are great to photograph even if minimal people. It is a memory the couple can treasure forever to themselves, through a beautiful album, no matter how private the ceremonies are.
