For their Chelsea Register Office wedding photography at Chelsea Old Town Hall Chris and Dora decided to keep it very low key and didn’t tell their family and friends. They wanted it to be a surprise. They had two Chelsea Pensioners from the Royal Hospital Chelsea as their witnesses which made it even more special. The ceremony was in the Rossetti Room which is perfect for small, intimate wedding ceremonies. The Chelsea Pensioners – Walter and Godfrey – did a cracking job with the confetti on the steps. Chelsea Old Town Hall is the venue for the Kensington & Chelsea Registry Office and it’s famous steps have witnessed many joyful confetti throws.

I remember when I first worked in London being mesmerised by the numerous happy couples outside as I passed by on the bus. And before that, my mum lived in nearby Bramerton Street when she was young and walked to Chelsea Old Church to marry dad. I remember visiting the area when I was very young and being in awe of the these pretty London streets.

Chris and Dora were a delight to photograph. After their confetti shot we headed off to take a few shots of just the two of them in the streets around Chelsea Old Town Hall. Since Chris and Dora are from Greece originally it was nice to incorporate some Mediterranean foliage into their photographs. We were also very lucky with the it being a beautiful sunny day. Dora’s sleeveless, knee-length lace dress and Chris’s navy pinstriped suit looked stunning against the stucco white buildings of Chelsea.
