Wedding Photography at The Ned
The wedding of Rhea and Jamie
Paul photographed our wedding events and we cannot recommend him highly enough. His documentary approach meant that he was able to capture the most special and candid moments in an unobtrusive way. The resulting photographs are art pieces: beautifully framed, dramatically lit and wonderfully creative.
We also greatly appreciated Paul’s kindness throughout the process. He was attentive to our requests, constantly reassuring and made sure that we were always comfortable. To say that we are pleased with his service and work is an understatement, and we will undoubtedly be contacting him for future events.
Rhea and Jamie
When it comes to a wedding venue making a striking and dramatic first impression The Ned in London has to take the top step on that particular podium. This former headquarters of The Midland Bank is testimony to the glory days of the banking industry and the extravagant ground floor makes quite the statement when you first step through the impressive doors.
Coverage of Rhea and Jamie’s wedding celebrations had actually begun the previous evening with an informal gathering of friends and family at Iberica in Marylebone, but for this blog post I’ll be focusing on the main event at The Ned.
Documentary Wedding Photography at The Ned
The day began with guests gathering and mingling on a terrace with spectacular views over the London skyline before moving into the dramatic Tapestry Room for the ceremony where they were entertained by a wonderful string quartet.
Following the ceremony we headed to another terrace with equally impressive views to capture some group shots and a few relaxed portraits of Rhea and Jamie, whilst guests headed to The Saloon to enjoy drinks and live music.
It’s testimony to the incredible staff at The Ned and the first-class organisational skills of Grace Precious of Events with Grace that, while this was going on, the Tapestry Room was completely transformed from a ceremony room to a beautiful dining room such that it was barely recognisable as the same space! I’ll let the photos tell that story.
Speeches and cake cutting followed the wedding breakfast before everyone headed back to The Saloon for a lovely first dance and partying, including a surprise performance by some friends for the Bride and Groom’s benefit.
With all of the days events taking place on one floor of this albeit spectacular venue, this was a wedding celebration ideally suited to my style of documentary wedding photography. I never had to go very far to find a story to tell or moments to capture that I knew would ultimately make for a compelling collection of images for Rhea and Jamie to remember their day by.
Enjoy this selection of images from Rhea and Jamie’s stunning celebrations.
