A Thames Rowing Club Wedding
I love shooting weddings in London and this Thames Rowing Club Wedding alongside The Thames by Putney Bridge was no exception. Even allowing for the fact that I locked my keys in my car at The Lodge Hotel where the bridal preparation were taking place.. Obviously I could never admit to this as it would make me look extremely unprofessional if not downright idiotic, so I’d appreciated it if you kept this between us. Thanks :)
I’d first met Kathryn and Peter for their pre-wedding shoot that we did in Hyde Park about six weeks earlier. The day was one of glorious sunshine which turned out to be in stark contrast to the rather rainier weather of the wedding day itself. Before I met the pair of them I’d had the usual protestations that they weren’t very photogenic but you can see this was far from the case! The prep took place at The very stylish Lodge Hotel (LINK) on Richmond Road in Putney with the ceremony and reception all taking place at The Thames Rowing Club (LINK!) clubhouse. The Club sits (unsurprisingly!) alongside The Thames on Putney Embankment and affords fabulous views from the balcony that runs the length of The Club House.
The guests braved the rain to stand under the awning for the group shots while we made some Hollywood style portraits indoors. The rain meant going outside for Bride and Groom portraits wasn’t an option so I waited for a small gap in the weather. I’d set up a multi light portrait of the couple along the Thames and the second the rain eased up we went out to capture it. It turned out to be one of my favourite shots of the year! Indeed you can see it with other faves from the year on my home page..(WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER CAMBRIDGE)
