Wedding Greenwich CT
Jemma and Billy’s wedding took place on a lovely autumn day in September at the Trafalgar Tavern in historic Greenwich. The nineteenth century tavern sits right on the river in Greenwich and is rightly becoming an increasingly popular wedding venue. Catch it on a good day and the setting sun creates amazing light in late afternoon on the balconies at the front.
The day started at Davenport House where Jemma and her bridesmaids were getting ready. The usual chaotic scene of hair styling, make-up and champagne greets one on arrival to do the bridal preparation shots. This part of the day as it lends itself to drama, high emotion and lots of great details to grab. Jemma had chosen an amazing dress with a black sash and a bright red bouquet. This was mirrored by her bridesmaids who were wearing black dresses with white bouquets. It was a bold colour scheme and looked amazing. Classic, daring and contemporary.
The service took place at the Trafalgar Tavern and the theme of black, red and white was continued with an amazing array of details, favours and flowers that all complemented each other. Jemma and Billy hand-made a lot of the details and the place looked stunning. As a photographer, It’s thrilling when you see so much care and attention to detail and it certainly makes the job easier!
One of the best things about photographing weddings in Greenwich is taking advantage of the historic buildings for the bride and groom portraits. Jemma and Billy were great fun to work with and ensured that we got some stunning shots in and around Greenwich. It’s good to get my couples to engage in activities rather than posing them in awkward positions that they don’t feel comfortable with. Jemma and Billy were naturals and looked great together as we wondered from location to location.
The evening entertainment was just as impressive as the rest of the day. The live music was provided by a Motown tribute band who played 60s classics faultlessly. The beehives were truly impressive! Without a doubt one of the best live acts you could see at a wedding this year.
As my part of the evening came to an end Jemma and Billy were persuaded to take a few night shots on the balcony over the river with the O2 lit in the background. It rounded off the day perfectly and the party was in full swing!
