Getting Married at Fulham Palace
Cate and Justin got in touch with me just a month before their Summer wedding, hoping I was available to photograph them getting married at Fulham Palace. Luckily it was a midweek date, so we got things moving and a few weeks later, on a hot, sunny Monday, I met Cate there to start photographing her preparations. Meanwhile, Justin had arrived downstairs and was greeting family and friends as they arrived ready for the afternoon ceremony. Fulham Palace is an incredible wedding venue. The beauty of getting married in London is that there is such a rich variety of palaces, manor houses and modern settings to get tie the knot! Fulham Palace was the country home for the Bishop of London for over a thousand years. These days Fulham Palace is leased from the Church Commission by Fulham Palace Trust, who run a restoration project and make the Palace available for weddings.
Hot, Sunny Summer Wedding Photography
Guests were seated in Bishop Terrick’s Drawing Room before Cate arrived with her bridesmaids and Father. After a beautiful ceremony the newly-weds entered the Tudor Courtyard through confetti, where drinks awaited. It was hot, and extremely bright, so I had to use the light to my advantage. We managed some family group photos in the courtyard before taking a wander into the gardens for a quick portrait session with the bride and groom on their own.

The wedding breakfast and speeches were back in the Drawing Room, before guests helped themselves to an array of cocktails at the bar in Bishop Terrick’s Dining Room.
