Queens House Wedding Photographer
Im so thrilled to be the recommended Queen’s House wedding photographer. From the high ceilings, the beautiful classical architecture, the clean white walls, gold foil ceilings, that spiral staircase, the elegant undercover walkways, lawns to spill out onto during the drinks reception, those sweeping steps, and the underground cave for the party….Most importantly though are the people that run it. Genuine, kind, willing to go above and beyond for you.
Queens House – Real Wedding
I cannot wait to be back at the Queen’s House this year for many weddings. And if you have decided to have your wedding at the Queen’s House either this year or next, get in touch. For now I will leave you with some photos from this gorgeous wedding which was also featured on Style Me Pretty. This was a mixture of Chinese culture, interwoven with beautiful dusty pinks, from the epic rose bouquet, to the cathedral veil. The classic, stylish, beautiful details and hints of humour from the favours and ‘door games’. Such a fun celebration in the London summer air and surrounded by history, beauty and all their gorgeous family and friends.

Autumn Wedding Tips for Brides
So if you are planning an autumn wedding this year and want to incorporate the beauty of this time of year here in London here are a few of my top tips…
- Make sure you are not eating dinner during ‘golden hour’ or can pop out between courses for a few photographs. Why? Because Autumn – ie September and October have the BEST golden light! The sun is lower in the sky but is still a yellow sun like in Summer. This golden light is about 20minutes just before the sun sets. I always check it out in terms of timings on the wedding day of my couples to make sure I know, for instance, that between 7pm and 7:20pm there will be great light to take my couples out to wander in the fields or streets and capture some of that magical light.
- Honour the season with flowers that are autumnal colours – looks great and will mean they are seasonal and can be local (something the florist in this shoot – Sarah at Florabunda Rose is super keen on and which I agree – keep it local and get gorgeous smelling, naturally blooming flowers).
- Invest in some great music. The beauty of an autumn wedding means that it does get dark in the evening. This means that instead of being outside your guests will want to pile onto the dancefloor – great! So get live music if you can afford it (theres no substitute) or if not a great DJ!
