04 Nov Hurlingham Club Wedding Photography
Well this was a delight! The weather was dreamy, the venue, and Charlotte and Hal were fantastic. Two of the most chilled-out “Go With The Flow” people we’ve ever met! It was a thrill to be asked to cover their Hurlingham Club wedding as it meant we could tick the venue off our wedding photography wish list! We started the day in Putney, the girls were getting ready at a house in earshot of Fulham football club who were playing at home and Hal and his groomsmen got into their black tie and dinner jacket combo’ at the Yacht Club down on the Thames. The service was at 4.00pm so we had a long leisurely build up to the ceremony which whilst serious and of course formal was full of joy, particularly when the Registrar accidentally asked Hal to take Victoria( not Charlotte) to be his lawfully wedded wife ! The Registrar was mortified but everyone else took it in great humour and burst out laughing!
The Hurlingham Club is a truly wonderful venue with gorgeous gardens and plenty of nooks and crannies for us to explore for the portrait session. Just before we headed off for portraits we took what is now one of our favourite group shots. The bridal party were asked to chill out on the chairs and chat amongst themselves and with the smallest amount of direction we got a great shot of them, which is very natural and is a fantastic representation of how relaxed the entire wedding was and great example of how group shots don’t need to be everyone lined up and looking at the lens. We love it!
Given how nice it was outside it was almost a shame to go inside for the wedding breakfast but Charlotte and Hal had dressed the room beautifully and the flowers were amazing. Dancing went on into the night to a fantastic live band and we left after getting some quick silhouette shots in front of the majestic facade which formed the backdrop to this lovely Hurlingham Club wedding ( check out the photobombing just before the end of the day)
This wedding was full of fun and I have to thank the lovely Mona who worked with me as Don wasn’t available. If you are planning your own Hurlingham Club wedding and would like to chat through your plans and the style of photography you are hoping to have, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We’d love to hear from you and although we have ticked the club off our bucket list of venues, we’d be very happy to return !
