To be a Devonshire Terrace wedding photographer is to experience a great deal of what is so special to photograph weddings in and around London. For Naomi and Stephen who’s reception was set there, it was the perfect setting to share their day with friends and family, and was only a relatively short walk from Bevis Marks Synagogue where they had their ceremony. Bevis Marks itself is the oldest place of Jewish worship in the country, beautifully lit only by candles, and as we have photographed there many times it is going to be the subject of a seperate blog post in itself.
Both Naomi and Stephen elected to prepare themselves at the Hilton Tower of London with a beautiful roof top terrace to relax in, not that there was much time for them to relax with all their preparations! They smiled throughout with the happiness and anticipation of their special day though.
After a beautiful and touching ceremony at Bevis the entire wedding party walked through the streets of central London past Liverpool Street station and on to the very impressive Devonshire Terrace. Built originally in the early eighteenth century as warehouses for silk, mother of pearl and ivory products, it was remodeled in 2008 to include an incredible glass roof and now makes it a fantastic all weather venue.
As you can see from the photos these guys were naturally in love i.e lots of very heart felt kissing – and who are we to say stop?!
For drama and spectacle it’s hard to beat as a London wedding venue, and we can understand why London loving couples like Naomi and Stephen would choose to celebrate there. The courtyard can take 160 seated and 350 standing. We were very happy to receive this email from Stephen yesterday regarding the wedding. So lovely to have the feedback:
“Dear both, just wanted to say a big thank you for sending the pictures to us. They are fantastic, you have captured the day so well.Thank you again and I will make sure that I like your Facebook page. Best regards, Stephen.”
