Its not everyday you get to shoot in what is often described as the ‘finest dining hall in Europe’,  designed by Sir Christopher Wren and Nicholas Hawksmoor.

The Old Royal Naval College is an epic venue with stunning wall and ceiling decorations by James Thornhill.

Dan and Sorraya’s wedding ceremony was emotional and the evening reception was full of laughter as well as tears. The night ended with a big party and a celebtration fit for these two..

Thank so much for choosing me to document your day!

I had a blast shooting your wedding and I got to say a big thanks to Fran Chelico for coming along too!

Congratulations Dan and Sorraya!

  1. Absolutely amazing photos. Thank you so much for capturing our day with such style and beauty.
    You’re such a talented photographer and really know how to capture the feeling of the day. Thanks for the memories.
    You and Fran made it so easy xx

  2. OMG, I don’t even know where to begin with this wedding! So, so, so much goodness here. My jaw first dropped when I saw the shoes shot– subtle, yet so amazing. And it just went on from there.

  3. Seriously, this is a ridiculous post. I LOVE her laugh on on stage, so radiant. Their dinner room looks absolutely stunning.

  4. Your black and whites are so dang good!

    I LOOOOVE the balance of small moments with big moments with some really beautiful posing/composition. I could eat this post it’s so good and so stinkin’ pretty!

  5. As everyone has been saying, your black and whites are particularly outstanding in this collection that is already superb. What an amazing venue, and you captured it in a way that documented the event and the people, rather than getting lost in the scene.

  6. What an amazing place, and so well documented. Love this set of photos, especially the history!
