SYON PARK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Emily & Tom’s Elegant London Conservatory Wedding
“We struck gold when we found Michael. From our first email enquiry and to making our beautiful photo album, Michael has been the most organised, most polite and most talented photographer we could have chosen. He made us both feel totally at ease in front of the camera - we didn't even know it was there half the time. We've come to feel like he is more of a friend than someone we paid to photograph our wedding so we loved having him with us and he played such a huge role in making it our 'best day ever'.”
Not only is Michael lovely to have around but his photos are just beautiful - although this did make for a very tricky time deciding which ones to print and have in our album!
We also had a videographer who Michael had never met until our wedding day and he worked alongside her so professionally - lots of our guests thought they were business partners as they worked so well together!
In all, Michael is patient, professional, friendly, super organised and an all round lovely guy. If you're after candid photographs to document your perfect day then Michael is 100% your man. We can't recommend him enough and we look forward to seeing him again when he photographs my sister's wedding in the not too distant future - we hope ;-)”
As much as I love traveling all over England for weddings, there’s a certain pride and joy that comes with photographing at venues that are down the road from where I live. Syon Park has become one of my favourite wedding venues in London, and fate had it that I’d photograph four weddings there in 2018. It’s an absolutely breathtaking place, and it’s the perfect balance between grand and intimate —a 50-person wedding feels just as personal as a 150-person one. I was thrilled when Emily & Tom reached out to me.
They both got ready at The Petersham on Richmond Hill, with stunning views of the Thames. Their ceremony took place in Syon House’s great hall, flanked by striking arches and marble statues. After a drink’s reception in the inner courtyard, all the guests slowly made their way down to my favourite place on the grounds — the great conservatory — for the wedding breakfast and party.
I love what I do, and I love it even more when I get to work alongside a team as brilliant as the one at Syon Park.
Here are some of my favourite photos of the day.
