Chelsea Register Office Wedding Photography


Weddings at Kensington Town Hall

From the 20th of August 2018 onwards, Chelsea Old Town Hall will be undergoing some much needed refurbishment – hopefully not lasting any longer than 6 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 the 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.

Weddings at Chelsea Old Town Hall

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 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, folks from all over the country, and 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 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 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.

Why Two Galleries?

So the 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.

Below you’ll find a link to some recent blog posts featuring Chelsea Register Office Weddings and Chelsea Wedding Portraits. You can book me as your Chelsea Register Office Wedding Photographer from as little as 1.5 hours coverage.

    review rating 5  Yvonne, she is the best photographer on your special day. On our wedding day, we met the first time. However, she really made us comfortable around her as well as in front of a camera. She really made an impression on us that she has been a long-time friend. She helped keep me calm and relaxed before walked down the aisle was truly something special. But more importantly, such a talented professional to have captured all the photos in such a romantic and authentic way. THANK you so much again.

    review rating 5  Fantastic! Yvonne did an amazing job photographing our small registry-office wedding, including a beautiful pre-ceremony shoot outdoors and some lovely shots during and after the ceremony itself.

    review rating 5  Yvonne took beautiful photos, both natural shots of the ceremony and portraits later. As one friend put it to me after seeing the photos: "It feels like I was there!" Yvonne was also very pleasant to deal with and helpful with her knowledge of the venue etc. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

    review rating 5  We love our wedding photos. Yvonne really knew how to get the most out of the short time we had to capture our small wedding at Chelsea Town Hall as well as taking a range of portraits in the area after. From start to finish she was completely professional, you can see how she had made our guests feel at ease and that this is reflected in the photos she captured. On the day she was authoritative and this made sure that time was used to its fullest, capturing a great number of excellent photos in a brief amount of time. Yvonne was super to work with, communicating with us numerous times before the wedding, explaining how she works and what would enable her to capture the best photos. We are incredibly grateful to her for photographing our day and giving us a beautiful lasting memory of our wonderful day.
