St John Church Clerkenwell Wedding Photographer

As a St John Church Clerkenwell Wedding Photographer I hope that this commission will be the first of many to come. This wedding had everything to make it memorable, fun and unique. A gorgeous young couple, Kaz & Rory, who were just fantastic to work with. A very cool hotel in St John Square where the bride and bridesmaids were made up and dressed. A fabulous group of family and friends from all over the world. A church with a history dating from the 12th Century and a Museum that re-traces the 900 year old story of the Knights of the Order of St John. When all of those ingredients come together it makes me one very happy St John Church Clerkenwell Wedding Photographer.

The day kicked off with with Kaz and the girls at the Boutique Zetter Hotel Townhouse apartment (recently featured on BBC’s The Apprentice). Very stylish accommodation for a very stylish bride.Just across St John Square was the Priory Church of St John where the wedding ceremony took place. The church hall takes you by surprise as you enter with its high ceilings and walls hung with huge old oil paintings and colourful Order banners. Under the church hall is the crypt dating back to the 12th Century. Once Kaz and Rory were married and finished posing for group photos with the wedding party we spent some time alone in the immaculate church garden and courtyard. Then heading off across the square to St John’s Gate and The Museum of the Order of St John for the reception party. As you enter the downstairs gallery you find yourself in a beautifully designed space that merges old with new decorated with artefacts illustrating the history of St John. Here guests consumed Champagne and munched canapés served by the team from Top Hat Catering. Magician Nick Stein performed some stunning illusions for the guests, saving his best for later. The wedding breakfast was held upstairs in the Chapter Hall. As you walk into the hall with the sun streaming through stained glass windows you can’t help marvelling at the exquisiteness of this room. Dark wood panelling, carvings, medieval coats of arms, an imposing painting of HRH Elizabeth II and huge banners pointing to a central skylight. An incredible setting full of grandeur.

After the wedding breakfast, some brilliant speeches and toasts it was back downstairs for a fantastic show with Nick Stein. Not just magic but comedy that had everyone choking with laughter. Then it was back upstairs for Kaz to throw her bouquet, cut a wedding cake lit up with sparklers and romantic first dance with Rory her new husband. Everyone joined in and danced till 1pm to the light and sound of GJ’s Disco. What a day! I had so much fun being a St John Church Clerkenwell Wedding Photographer, but more importantly getting to know Kaz and Rory and their family and friends was a very special experience. I wish them all the very best for the future – X
