Amelia & Leon - Lincoln's Inn

Yesterday I launched my newly refreshed 2013 Wedding Photography Portfolio and today I’m sharing a wedding that features a couple of times in that portfolio, including the opening image. This post is the first in a series that will bring the blog up-to-date with the remaining 2012 weddings that I have yet to share.

Amelia & Leon were married in late September at the wonderfully picturesque Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn. I had to do my reading here to discover the exact nature of an organisation, that previously, I’d only briefly heard of. Lincoln’s Inn is one of the four surviving ‘Inns of Court’ - essentially professional associations of barristers. Amelia’s father is one of the society’s Benchers, and as such is extended certain privileges, amongst which, access to the beautiful Benchers Lawn which sits in the shadow of the Inn’s Great Hall.

I know Amelia from school days but we’d lost contact over the years, so it was fantastic to receive an email from her in December 2011 enquiring about wedding photography. Leon is a native kiwi but has been over here for sometime and is quite simply a fantastic bloke. A lovely couple with a clear vision for their photography.

The Chapel at Lincoln’s Inn is one of the most interesting I’ve ever worked in. Huge and beautiful and unusual for featuring no central aisle but rather two off-centre ones. Amelia walked in on her father’s arm up the left aisle (as you face the altar) and walked out down the right aisle with her new husband. I enjoy such idiosyncrasies! Unfortunately the chapel was very firm on limiting photography during the ceremony itself so I had to content myself with shooting Amelia’s entrance, the signing and the exit. Nonetheless, a fantastic location for a wedding! The light streaming in through the huge window at the rear of the chapel as Amelia entered was something of uncommon beauty.

Amelia & Leon emerged into glorious autumnal sunshine and after a drinks reception on the Benchers Lawn, we stepped into the Old Hall for a finger buffet tea. Speeches seemed all the more impressive given the venue and as a setting for dancing and a party the Hall was pretty special!

As you’ll certainly notice, Amelia & Leon are seriously hot stuff and photographing them was a privilege. The Undercroft beneath the Chapel is one of the richest locations I’ve ever worked in, I literally could have spent three hours happily shooting the multiplicity of angles it offered. Sadly, we didn’t have that long (!) but the opportunity to photograph there, with such a knockout couple, was a lot of fun.

My thanks to Leon & Amelia for a superb day and for being such superb clients. As I mentioned previously, Amelia walking up the aisle gets my current portfolio underway, so if you enjoy these, take a wander over to the main website and have a browse.
