Wedding Photography at Henry’s
Last Sunday, I exhibited my London wedding photography services at Henry’s Wedding Fair, a premium bar and restaurant in the heart of Canary Wharf.
The wedding fair was first-class, well suited to Henry’s, a perfect venue for wedding receptions. For the romantic bride, Henry’s is a good choice of venue to achieve timeless wedding photography; softly lit by chandeliers and other romantic dimensions including a sweeping spiral staircase.
Other exhibitors offering bespoke wedding services included a travel expert to organize your honeymoon, a luxury wedding cake company, a florist who makes exquisite bouquets and live musicians, to mention a few. The wedding fair attracted couples from all over London and Essex. Upon arrival guests were treated to champagne, canapés and music played by Margaret Jackson, a violinist.
Much to everyone’s surprise and delight, one couple became engaged at the wedding fair, after Toby got down on one knee and proposed to Vina. Congratulations were announced by the Toast Master, followed by a round of applause and a glass of champagne to celebrate.
Showcasing my work, once again, my handcrafted Queensberry Wedding Albums were popular. I also ran a slideshow of my favourite wedding photography images on a TV on the wall above my stand. This proved a focal point for brides, and many discussions were initiated about my reportage style of wedding photography.
Next to me exhibiting was Mestre Entertainment, a provider of multiple wedding and event party services, including their photo booth. The photo booth provided hours of entertainment throughout the day, with exhibitors and guests striking their best poses using the props provided. I couldn’t resist having a go, so I went into the photobooth with my reluctant colleague Hayley Smith. Guests were given their photos as a momentum, see below – it was hilarious to watch.
Throughout the day, I took numerous photographs of the wedding fair, including the beautiful bride, Inga. Inga was modeling a beautiful wedding dress, wedding makeup by Adna Cristina, the wedding tiara from The Wedding Boudoir and a gorgeous bridal bouquet. She looked absolutely stunning and certainly attracted lots of attention.
Time flew and I really enjoyed the day. Despite the miserable weather, a good number of couples came to say hello. However, it helped that Henry’s was situated directly next to the India West Quay DLR station, so guests didn’t have to walk in the rain for very long.
