Westminster Register Office wedding photographer at Mayfair Library – the temporary home of Westminster Council’s civil partnerships and weddings. In January 2018 the newly renovated Old Marylebone Town Hall reopened to great fanfare. Mayfair Library is now hosting the last weddings in this temporary venue.

The Marylebone Room is an elegant and stylish ceremony room on the first floor of the Library. Joanna and Richard arrived for their civil wedding in the rain but it didn’t dampen anyone’s mood. They had ten guests made up of family and friends.

Joanna wore a pale blue, long-sleeved, off-the-shoulder A-line dress with a full skirt. It had silk buttons down the front. She teamed this with peep-toe heeled sandals and pale pink and cream floral bouquet. Richard emerged from the taxi with an umbrella in a navy check suit, white shirt and silvery blue, purple, mauve and pink floral tie, and a cream rose buttonhole. The first time that they saw their guests was walking into the Marylebone Room. Broad smiles all round.

At the start of the ceremony, when the Registrar asked if there was anyone who knew of a reason why Joanna and Richard could not be legally married, Richard listened intently, much to Joanna’s amusement. Luckily everyone remained quiet! When they walked back down the aisle together it was still raining so the staff very kindly let us do the group photos in the Mayfair Room. And then it was outside (for me anyway) and through a hail of confetti. Everyone said their goodbyes and headed off for drinks nearby. Joanna, Richard and I went back inside and did a few shots inside the Library.

Just before we went outside I took a shot of the two of them from above and I love how it shows off Joanna’s full skirt. A few final shots under their umbrella next to the ‘Boris bikes’ – a special request – and in front of Mount Street Gardens.

Joanna’s hair and make-up was by London based Kit Hall who is brilliant. I use Kit for all my fine art portrait shoots and she understands that my brides wants a really natural look.
