Mayfair Room wedding

The Mayfair Room wedding of Christine and Ray is the first I’ve photographed at Old Marylebone Town Hall since it reopened after four years of renovations.

I’m so excited to be back. It’s such a beautiful building, and the 7 newly-decorated ceremony rooms look fabulous.

Christine and Ray decided to tie the knot after having already spent a couple of decades together! They invited their closest family and friends along to witness their wedding ceremony in the Mayfair Room of  Old Marylebone Town Hall.

The bride and groom arrived together to greet their arriving guests on the Town Hall steps.

The ceremony took place in the Mayfair Room. This room is decorated in gentle neutrals, and holds up to 30 guests, which was the perfect size for Ray and Christine’s intimate group of  family and friends.

Christine looked gorgeous in navy blue lace, as she was walked into the ceremony by one of the couple’s dearest friends. The ceremony went 100% according to plan, as the couple spoke their binding vows and exchanged rings. Then we headed outside onto the enormous steps for a confetti throw.

We’ve been having a total heatwave for the last few weeks, and the sun’s rays beam directly towards the Old Marylebone Town Hall. From a photography point of view, this means you need to take care to find some shade and not have guests faces bleached out by the strong sun. So when it came to doing our big group photograph, we had to go right to the top of the steps, where there was a last bit of remaining shade.

Once the formal groups photos were done, I had some time with Ray and Christine. We spent about 20 minutes having a little walk around the area to capture their wedding portraits in the setting of classic London residential architecture.

Then it was time to progress the reception at the nearby Potting Shed, where the Best Man, Bride and Groom all gave heartfelt speeches based on a lifetime of love and friendship.

This was a GREAT way to start back with Old Marylebone Town Hall wedding photography and I can’t wait to photograph many more weddings here in the months and years to come.
