Sacred Heart Church Wedding Photography London – Anna and Michael

When Anna and Michael first came to see us earlier this year, we got really excited! The prospect of documenting their wedding at Sacred Heart Church in Kilburn, London, was exciting enough, but even more so because it was our first church wedding.

At first we thought they wouldn’t be interested in booking us as we only had images of Asian weddings to show them. But we needn’t have worried. After seeing the albums and slideshow, Anna said they were impressed by what they saw and they had full faith in our abilities to tell their story. What mattered to them was the unobtrusive reportage shooting style we have. But more importantly, we all got on really well. And that’s all the motivation we needed. It’s always a privilege when couples recognise and appreciate the pressure and hard work that goes into creating memorable images for one of the most important days of a couples life.

On their wedding day, we had an absolutely brilliant time, both families were so lovely. The church wedding atmosphere was very serene with the pleasant sounds of hymns and a few bouts of restless children which made everyone laugh. One reason we love wedding photography is because we get to experience and learn about different customs, rituals and beliefs. Something new we learned about a Christian wedding ceremony was how the bride and groom would light two separate candles before the vows, then after the vows they blow them out and light one candle together. This symbolises their unity and love for each other.

After the beautiful church ceremony, everyone gathered outside momentarily before heading off for the reception at the Marriott Hotel, Regents Park. The best men embarrassing Michael by placing pictures of his messy room as centrepieces on each guest table was a hilarious touch. And music from a live Irish band was a great way to end the night.

We had a lot of fun with them and their families. Here’s a selection of shots from the day.

    Amazing work !!

    You are really superb, very creative (which is most important for a wedding photographer to be). I really enjoyed your pictures.

    I liked all the poses, the light effect and the expressions you caught.

  2. James Tibbott says

    The very first photo here really stands out to me, I love the angle and the look on her face, great job!

  3. Alexis - Baby Photography, Berkshire says

    very nice, great imagination and use of the space. love the lighting too!

  4. James Reyes Photography says

    Thanks for your recent comments on my blog. THis shot is just majestic. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it! You have quite the eye.

  5. Photogapher Alexander says

    I must say, really amazing photos. And what I love with the style you present in these photos is how you really make sure to tell us who you’re taking a photo of by focusing effectively on the “subject”.

  6. Beach Weddings says

    The photos are stunning. Love the bride and her dress too. And that small kid.. he is so cute, I remembered my childhood days by seeing him.

  7. devdan says

    is there any more photo with the same tehnique you have?

    regards

  8. Andrea - aMa photographer italy says

    stunning image. love how the light falls on the veil. the pose, the composition, the focus point are all top knotch.

  9. Timothy says

    Awesome thanks. I have blogger, not sure all that would entail. But I’ll look into it. I actually am looking more into it for my main website, not as much for my blog.

  10. Timothy says

    This is a side comment, but did you design the follow me feed on the left side or did you get from somewhere? I’ve seen some similar to yours but haven’t figured out where to get it.

  11. Grant Stringer says

    I think this is a really great set of photos which I would be very happy to have taken. Well done. I trust the couple are over the moon with them!

  12. Nikon D3100 says

    You are really inspired and the bride looks really great… Can I ask what camera model are you using?

  13. Sanjay D Gohil says

    The 1stshot of the bride is simply stunning.

    Jay, I love your style and commitment to producing some stunning images :)

    Watching in admiration

  14. Colourscape Studio Backgrounds says

    I agree, perfect composition, aided by fantastic light and spot on exposure. You’ve made a beautiful subject look magical !!

  15. Queen Halloween Costume says

    Simply beautiful! Too often the tilted look is tilted too much, causing a seasick feeling for the viewer. But you tilted this just right. It gives a sense of movement from the bride. The lighting, as was already mentioned, is spot on. Excellent!

  16. Thina Doukas @ Wedding Photography Sydney says

    Such a beautiful guys with great use of available light! Creative angle also. Highly credible work. Reg Perry In Sydney

  17. Matt Osborne says

    Jay, I’ve only looked at the title photo but it is truly amazing! Lighting is spot on especially for an indoor shot.. as is the pose and composition with the arched roof above her head.

    Can’t wait to see the others.

    They will be SOOO pleased

    :)
    Matt
