Right at the heart of London’s legal quarter, near The Strand, Fleet Street, and Embankment is The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple. I love capturing emotional moments in beautiful, elegant event spaces as an Inner Temple wedding photographer. Unusually for the centre of the city, the venue also has three acres of gardens to enjoy. I have to say it’s one of the most organised and professional venues I’ve visited, they’ve thought of everything!
Inner Temple wedding photography – Craig and Paul
I joined Craig and Paul as their Inner Temple wedding photographer, to capture their celebrations in the heart of the city. They had their legal wedding in the Drawing room, followed by a marriage ceremony with all their guests in Parliament Chamber.
We had a brilliant surprise visit from The London Gay Men’s Chorus, who entertained everyone with some of their most iconic tunes and choreography!
Inner Temple wedding reception
After Craig and Paul’s marriage ceremony, they had a drinks reception in the gardens, accompanied by the flute and strings of Brook Trio. They took this time to have their speeches in the sunshine, which was a great idea as everyone made the most of the outdoor space and garden games. I’ve worked at venues across the city, including weddings at the Corinthia Hotel with views over the skyline from the balconies, but there’s something lovely about having a garden party on a sunny day!
Craig and Paul
I took a quick walk with Craig and Paul to capture some portraits of them as newlyweds in the dappled shade under the trees, and in a patch of beautiful light from the Georgian windows before they joined their guests in Inner Temple Hall for their wedding breakfast.
Wedding breakfast in Inner Temple Hall
The background of the heraldic shields on the oak-panelled walls gives Inner Temple wedding photography a real sense of history and grandeur. The silverware adorning the tables, the candlelight and the chandeliers make this a beautifully elegant space for a wedding breakfast. The banquet-style seating meant everyone could chat throughout the meal, enjoying a chance to catch up and celebrate with some absolutely delicious food served on the bespoke Inner Temple Hall dinner plates.
Celebrating Paul’s Scottish roots was an important part of their day, so after both changing into their kilts, the evening reception started with bagpipes and a ceilidh, with all the guests enjoying dancing in the grand surroundings of Inner Temple Hall. After a few dances, everyone seemed to be getting the hang of it!
I hope you’ve enjoyed the highlights from the day, and just a few of the action shots from the Ceilidh! It was a brilliant day in the city and an absolute pleasure to photograph. Congratulations Craig and Paul! Can’t wait to share the full gallery with you soon!
