Chinese Wedding at Chelsea Register Office

Well, we didn’t have perfect weather, but even the Spring rain could not put a dampener on this Chinese Wedding at Chelsea Register Office.

I get to photograph quite a few Chinese Weddings here at Chelsea Register Office. Many of my clients meet whilst they’re over here studying at University. They usually go home to China for their big family weddings with 100s of guests. But their legal nuptials take place right here where they met, in fabulous London.

Often, with my Chinese clients, their families are unable to be here. But in the case of Yi Yiang and Khoon Li, both their immediate families were able to be here for them, which is wonderful. I always feel a little sorry for couples whose nearest family are unable to attend. So I was delighted that this was not the case here.

Whilst we did have the family in attendance, I could not deliver sunny weather for them. It was piddling down with rain when the bride and groom arrived and it was still raining when we finished the ceremony. We only had one small umbrella on the day, so the bride and groom squeezed under that. Thankfully, the rest of the family didn’t mind getting a little bit wet.

Bride Yi Tiang looked stunning in her dress, which she brought with her from China. Her smile lights up her whole face, beaming through the overcast day. In fact, both bride and groom could not stop smiling, even as they walked across the Chelsea puddles. The result were some gorgeous wedding portraits.

Here is a small selection of what we photographed for this couple’s Chinese Wedding at Chelsea Register Office. Many congratulations to Yi Yiang and Khoon Li. My they have a long and happy life together.

Spring Wedding Photography at Mayfair Library

With the weather turning all wintery outside, and our thoughts turning to Christmas, I thought it would be nice to bring a little sunshine to the blog with some Spring Wedding Photography at Mayfair Library from earlier on this year.

Chinese couple Carolyn and Norman will have a much bigger wedding in China later, but for now, the two chose Mayfair Library as the venue for their Spring Wedding and I was delighted to be there to provide the photography. The wedding took place in the most intimate circle, with only the bride’s father having flown in from China and the couple’s closest friend acting as witness.

The ceremony brought a couple of linguistic misunderstanding, resulting in much laughter and a joyous morning.  After that, we headed out into the nearby gardens where Spring had fully sprung and we were surrounded by pink tulips and cherry blossom. Nothing lifts the heart like bright Spring colours on a wedding day. And of course, we couldn’t ignore such a classic London icon as the red telephone box as a backdrop for some of our wedding portraits.

And here’s a selection of what we shot on the day. Many congratulations to this Chinese bride and groom – Carolyn and Norman!

Chinese Wedding at Islington Town Hall

Time for a change of scene, and we’re off to celebrate Clarabella and Jason’s Chinese Wedding at Islington Town Hall, along with their closest family and friends. I love Islington Town Hall as a wedding venue. It’s such a beautiful building, with ceremonies taking place in the historical circular council chamber, with it’s wood panels and beautiful red leather seats.

There are also lots of different options for wedding portraits and formal group photographs both inside and outside, which was handy because the weather could not make up its mind whether it wanted to rain, push us around with stormy gusts of wind, or warm us up with a bit of sunshine. That’s November for you. And given that the bride and groom had chosen to have lots of group photographs with all their different guests, we changed locations a few times to account for the changing weather.

By the time we were ready to shoot the bride and groom’s portraits, the sun had put his hat on, hip hip hip horay! It wasn’t until the very end of the portraits that I realised that the lovely Clarabella was 6 months pregnant, so double cause for celebration! Best wishes the the happy couple, both on their wedding, and on their soon to arrive new family member!

Chelsea Register Office Wedding – Yingge and Bin

I finished 2012 in the same way in which it began, with a Chelsea Register Office Wedding. Chinese bride and groom Yinnge and Bin chose the Rosetti room as the location for their intimate wedding ceremony, amongst their closest friends and the bride’s mother.

It was a chilly day, but that did not deter the bride and groom, who have been together since University and met in the UK, even though both originally hail from different parts of China. The bride’s mother surprised both myself and the registars by presenting us with a box of chocolates for each of us after the ceremony – such a lovely gesture, and not one I’ve ever encountered at a wedding before – but it’s something I would definitely encourage future clients to consider 🙂 !

The lovely thing about Chelsea Register Office Weddings that they always offer the opportunity for the iconic wedding images on the steps of the Chelsea Old Town Hall, and also, that we have the option of a lovely green space nearby where we can go for our wedding portraits. At this time of year there wasn’t much in bloom, but the tips of the palm tree managed to offer a little splash of colour on an overcast day.

Many congratulations to Yingge and Bin, and the best of luck with the new addition to their new family, which I understand is not too far off ;-). So double congratulations are in order!
