Porchester Hall Wedding Photography
Porchester Hall Wedding Photography. It’s not every day you get the chance to celebrate a traditional Middle Eastern wedding without leaving London.
So when Enas and Amer asked me to be their photographer, I jumped at the chance.
Together From Sunrise To Sunset
Enas and Amer had the pleasure of getting ready in the same house. No ‘mustn’t see the bride’ superstitions for them, so making my job to photograph them both getting ready easier.
The venue, Porchester Hall, is simply stunning, built-in 1929 as a Public Hall for the residents of the Borough of Paddington.
Outside the grand and elaborately detailed Portland stone and Cornish granite facade gives the building an imposing presence. But the inside is even more beautiful.
The vast sweeping staircase, with ornamental wrought iron and bronze bannisters, provided the ideal setting for photographs of the newly-weds.
Inside the hall, the English oak and walnut panels, luxurious red velvet curtains, and crystal chandeliers gave the whole day a real sense of occasion.
The hall was huge. Even with all the guests and furniture, there was still plenty of space for dancing.
I love Porchester Hall wedding photography gigs because there is so much space for me to move around without intruding on the guests’ conversations or interrupting what they are doing. It’s so much easier to capture natural, authentic, moments when I can circulate the room relatively unnoticed.
A big thanks to Rafal and Carla who helped me through the day.
Biggest Cake Knife Ever
I marvelled when Amer received what looked like the biggest cake knife in the world!
When an equally large piece of cutlery appeared, it became clear that it wasn’t time to cut the cakes just yet, but not until after the traditional wedding day sword fight.
London Wedding Photographer
I would like to wish Enas and Amer every happiness in their future together and thank them for allowing me to be part of such a lively celebration.
