Being a Dulwich Wedding Photographer is perfect for me since I live close by in Dulwich. In my opinion it’s the most beautiful part of South London. A leafy village like suburb just 5 miles from the centre of London. That’s about 20 minutes to Trafalgar Square under pedal power! One of the many landmarks that make Dulwich Village is The Dulwich Picture Gallery. That’s where I’ll be working today as a Dulwich Wedding Photographer. It’s the venue for Ella and Matts wedding. The ceremony is next door at Christ’s Chapel of God’s Gift to Dulwich. If you were educated at Dulwich College, James Alleyn’s Girls or Edward Alleyn’s then you can elect to get married here. It’s a very beautiful and historic little chapel. Edward Alleyn is buried here just in front of the altar. Outside is a lovely lawn enclosed by Alms houses for lucky local pensioners.

The day starts with brides preps nearby. It’s unusually calm for a brides preps. I’d go so far as to say its serene and it’s just as relaxed at the ceremony at Christ’s Chapel. They might be saving energy for the reception party at Dulwich Picture Gallery. After the ceremony we pop next door. There’s a fabulous marquee in the gardens. Suzanne James‘ staff are making sure Champagne and canapé’s are being consumed. The interior of the marquee has been beautifully decorated. Finishing touches have been hand embroidered by the brides mother. Matts army skills come in handy as he cuts the cake with a ceremonial Sabre. Things get even more impressive after the first dance and the band starts throwing out some dance songs. The floor is packed and the frolics begin. There are grown men rolling around the dance floor with napkins tied around their heads!
