I love photographing weddings at Chelsea Register Office and hand on heart I can honestly claim that I am THE expert Chelsea Register Office Wedding Photographer in London! I am confident that no one else has photographed more weddings there since I started to specialise in photographing intimate weddings here a few years ago. I am there so often, I should really have my own office :-).
And one of the main reasons I love the place so much, is that such a diverse group of people marry in this most iconic of London Register Offices, from young couples, to bride’s in grooms in their 70s. Local folks, folks from all over the county, as well as from all over the world, travel to Chelsea to have their wedding here and to finish their wedding celebration with one of those famous confetti throws on the Chelsea Register Office step.
The other thing that makes Chelsea Register Office so special is the Chelsea Registrars, who, no matter how busy a day they are having, and no matter how many ceremonies they are conducting in a day, make sure that each and every couple feels as they they are the only ones getting married.
I have certainly photographed more weddings here than any other venue, and the galleries below are designed to show you what your Chelsea Register Office wedding might look like. Whether you are getting married in a most intimate circle of just you and your witnesses, or whether you are filling the Brydon Room to the rafters, I would like to show you what can be achieved with even just a few hours coverage.
So the two galleries below feature photographs taken exclusively during Chelsea Register Office Weddings with 1.5- 3 hours of coverage. The first gallery aims to show you what YOUR wedding might look like, with ceremonies in each of Chelsea’s three different rooms: the Brydon Room, the Rossetti Room, the tiny Harrington Room, also known as the “Register Office”, which is designed for the most intimate of wedding parties.
After the ceremony, and once we have photographed the classic confetti throw and some family groups on the register office steps, I usually spend at least 15 minutes (or more, depending on the booking) with each couple photographing their wedding portraits. So the second gallery is dedicated to showing you lots of lovely, natural, informal wedding portraits in different locations, almost all of which are within walking distance of the Register Office. So they are completely achievable for your wedding, no matter how small your wedding party or how short your wedding coverage..

Some more information about your wedding at Kensington & Chelsea Register Office by your expert Chelsea Register Office Wedding Photographer.
Chelsea Register Office has 3 main ceremony rooms for you to marry in. The Brydon Room, which holds up to 40 people, The Rossetti Room, which allows up to 14 guests, and the Harrington Room, which has been expanded slightly to allow up to 8 people in total. As many Chelsea wedding couples elope, and have only ever seen the ceremony rooms in the brochure before their wedding day, below I’ve posted some photographs to give a you a better idea of what these rooms look like.

Chelsea Register Office does get very busy, and in case they need to cope with any additional overflow, they are now also making two of the administrative registration rooms available for ceremonies. They do not have names as such, but here they are anyway, in case you are planning something super intimate, and they main rooms are not available.
