Inner Temple wedding – Caroline & David

An Inner Temple wedding with a ceremony at the OBE chapel – a very English, very London wedding. As was the weather…

It’s July, but somehow Mother Nature forgot this and skipped summer to offer up a more autumnal day of heavy downpours with the odd few moments of sunshine. Coverage begins (once the porter finally let me in from the heavy rain) at Inner Temple. Caroline got ready with her bridesmaids and family in the biggest bridal prep room I’ve ever seen. The rain clattered against the windows. This rain meant umbrellas and very slippery steps for the bridal party at St Paul’s.

The ceremony took place in the OBE chapel at St Paul’s Cathedral. In the crypt it is next to the tombs of some of Britain’s most famous heroes – like Wellington and Nelson. What was unusual was that I was allowed to stay in the chapel to photograph the wedding from the back – pretty much unheard of at St Paul’s. (Update: the next time I shot at St Paul’s it was through the door – with very tiny, dirty and not very clear glass apertures in the doors. The last time I was there The Chapter had banned any photography. This is not a photo friendly venue. It turns out that the cleric who officiated Caroline & David’s wedding is no longer there. Clearly too modern for The Chapter. They have a popular venue and don’t care about photography, despite what couples may want these days.)

Once out and the slippery steps conquered, it was back to Inner Temple for the reception and a vast marquee on the lawn. After drinks it was then umbrellas back up and on into the great hall for the wedding breakfast and speeches, followed by the dancing. In between we got one brief moment of sunshine for a quick bride and groom portrait in the courtyard in front of Temple church.

Here are a few images from the day at Inner Temple…
