With the impressive background of the gleaming copper-clad hull of this historic ship, I love creating award winning wedding photos as a Cutty Sark wedding photographer. The Royal Museums Greenwich have some beautiful venues for weddings and The Cutty Sark is one of the most striking and unusual.
Weddings on the Cutty Sark
The Cutty Sark was built in 1869, to transport tea from China across the high seas in record time. Now housed in the World Heritage site of Maritime Greenwich, the ship has been transformed into a unique venue for weddings and lavish celebrations. Taking place on one of the world’s most beautiful and iconic ships, weddings here are spectacular events that I love to capture as a Cutty Sark wedding photographer.

The Dry Berth
The Dry Berth is a modern addition to the Cutty Sark, built as part of the refurbishment following a fire in 2007. The hull of the ship is suspended three metres above the Dry Berth and is always flooded with natural daylight or dramatic evening lighting. Cutty Sark weddings are truly unique and are held in grand style for up to 450 guests. Making the most of this incredible setting in your Cutty Sark wedding photos is something I’m really passionate about, I want you to be able to relive the day and enjoy those views and the atmosphere for years to come.
The Weather Deck
On the bank of the Thames, the Weather Deck of the Cutty Sark is the perfect place to enjoy a drinks reception for up to 100 people. As a Cutty Sark wedding photographer, I love the opportunity to capture the beauty of this historic ship against the background of the London skyline with views of Canary Wharf.
‘Tween Deck wedding reception
As the name might suggest, the ‘Tween Deck is situated in the middle of the ship, where the cargo of tea from China would have been stored during the ship’s long voyages. The wooden floors and structural steel provide a nautical setting perfect for hosting wedding receptions with up to 100 guests, or banqueting for up to 60. Getting married on the ‘Tween Deck of the Cutty Sark is an opportunity to experience the history and grandeur this venue has to offer.
If you are looking for a more personal dining experience then the Master’s Saloon is ideal for intimate celebrations, this exclusive mahogany lined room can be used for private dining for up to ten guests in absolute luxury.
Historic venues across the City
I’ve been lucky enough to shoot weddings at some of the most beautiful and iconic historic venues across the City and the rest of the UK. Respecting conservation work whilst also creating beautiful images is really important to me.
