Here we are for my second visit in a week, back for some Marylebone Room wedding photography at Westminster Register Office.
One of the interesting things about the newly refurbished Old Marylebone Town Hall, is that each room has its own character. The Marylebone Room has stunning wood paneling, a feature fireplace and takes up to 15 guests.
Natural light falls onto the bride and groom from the window during daytime ceremonies and there’s an impressive chandelier above. The room has a warm atmosphere to help make the couple and their guests feel cozy and relaxed.
This mix of light sources and distance of the guests from the window light can be challenging, even for an experienced professional. Personally, I love how the light gives real depth to the room.
But let’s talk about today’s bride and groom Janie and Jonathan. Chinese Janie and Norwegian Jonathan had their immediate families with them to witness their Marylebone Room wedding. It was a delight to watch the two cultures mingling with the help of Google Translate!
Janie and Jonathan are expecting their first baby in a couple of months, so this ceremony was all about the formal creation of a new family. I feel privileged to witness these special moments in a family’s life. The ceremony was full of humour and laughter and the couple’s happiness was plain for all to see.
After the ceremony, the guests went outside with confetti to throw over Janie and Jonathan as they left Marylebone Old Town Hall. We took family group photos then Janie, Jonathan and myself visited the local streets for wedding portraits with Marylebone’s architecture as a backdrop.
When we returned to the town hall, there was a surprise waiting. Jonathan’s parents had arranged a maroon Rolls-Royce to take the couple to their wedding breakfast.
Best wishes to Janie and Jonathan for a long and happy life together, especially when their little bundle of joy arrives. Scroll down to see their Marylebone Room wedding photography and I look forward to my next opportunity for some more photos at Old Marylebone Town Hall.
