I love photographing weddings at Chelsea Register Office. Hand on heart I can honestly claim that I am THE expert Chelsea Register Office Wedding Photographer in London! You can be confident that no one else has photographed more Chelsea Register Office weddings, since the day I started to specialise in photographing intimate weddings here. In fact, I am there so often, I should really have my own office :-).
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 brides and grooms in their 70s. Local folks, people from all over the country, and even from all over the world travel to Chelsea to have their wedding here. And nothing finishes off their wedding celebration here, like an iconic photograph of one of those famous confetti throws on the Chelsea Old Town Hall steps.
The other thing that makes Chelsea Register Office Weddings so special is the Chelsea Registrars. No matter how busy a day they are having. No matter how many ceremonies they are conducting in a day. They make sure that each and every couple feels as though they are the only ones getting married.
I have certainly photographed more weddings here than any other venue, and the galleries above 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, even eloping entirely, 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 of photographic coverage.
Two galleries above 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. It features 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”. The latter is designed for the most intimate of wedding parties. After the ceremony we head outside onto the famous Chelsea Register Office steps to photograph the classic confetti throw. We follow this up with some family group photographs.
Then I usually spend at least 15 minutes (or more, depending on the booking) with each couple photographing your wedding portraits. So the second gallery is dedicated to showing you lots of lovely, natural, informal wedding portraits in different locations. Almost all of these
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.
From the 20th of August onwards, Chelsea Old Town Hall will be undergoing some much needed refurbishment - hopefully not lasting any longer than 8 months. In the meantime, wedding ceremonies will be taking place at Kensington Town Hall, in either the Mayor's Parlour, or the Committee Room. You can find detailed images of the rooms by following THIS LINK. One thing that we do not have within immediate vicinity of Kensington Town Hall, is any green space. So we'll be embracing the local classic London architecture for your bride and groom portraits instead.
