Rachel & Stewart - Dulwich Picture Gallery

Shooting in unique locations is one of the highlights of my job. There are literally thousands of wedding venues about these days and, with that in mind, it’s a shame that there are so many identifit locations. That said, with a bit of hunting there are plenty of genuinely distinct, characterful venues that completely buck this trend. Rachel & Stewart were married at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, one of the most individual and interesting locations I’ve shot this year. With Van Gogh’s famous self-portrait hanging in the ‘Masterpieces of the Month’ loan-exhibit at the far end of the gallery, and special instructions not to photograph ‘him’ the sense of history was something else. Aside from Vincent, the vast riches on the gallery walls were free reign and made for - without doubt - the most outstanding wedding breakfast setting I’ve yet to encounter.

The wedding morning was a taxi-fest of epic proportions. With Rachel in one flat, Stewart in another, parking always dubious and a hairdressers and pub to also visit prior to the commencement of ‘events formal’, I felt a bit like David Cameron on a busy day. It was actually immensely good fun and made for an interesting dynamic because I didn’t spend long in any one place.

Rachel & Stew were incredibly good fun and great to work with. A race to the cake (and then back again) ought to be compulsory at every wedding! Amongst heartfelt speeches, Stewart’s was particularly poignant and after some very powerful words and not a dry eye in the house the tears were stowed and some exceedingly funky dance moves showcased. Thanks so much for letting me shoot your wedding (and for picking such an excellent venue), it was a blast!

My thanks also to Lucy at the Picture Gallery and the Rod the custodian for being incredible warm and helpful.

As always, below are a selection of my personal favourites.
