Ham House Wedding

Em + Neil

It is such a pleasure to share Em and Neil’s beautiful Ham House wedding with you.

Em and Neil got married in their (very) local church in Ealing – they literally live opposite. Em got ready at home.  This was great for me as I could go back and forth from the flat to the church and get pictures of both Em and Neil preparing for the ceremony.  It was also great for Em as she could simply put on her veil, lock the door and walk across to the church to get married.

After the ceremony,  Em and Neil kept things casual by getting into their Audi A6 and driving themselves (and their cheese cake) to the stunning Ham House, a 17th century National Trust property set on the banks of the River Thames.  The guests followed in a classic London red bus.

Em and Neil often visit Ham House on their days off.  It was nice to walk around the beautiful grounds with them, picking out the best places for couple portraits. We were certainly spoiled for choice.

The guests gathered for the wedding breakfast in a beautifully decorated marquee. The ceiling was decorated with pretty pastel coloured lampshades. Sailing knots formed part of the table centre pieces to give credit to Neil’s passion for sailing.

Em and Neil are very close to their nephew Owen and baby niece Elizabeth.  As you can see from the photographs, Owen played a big part throughout the day. He was right at the front of the church when Em and Neil made their vows, entertained the guests on the bus, wore the veil, kept his grandpa company during the speeches and led the dancing with some funky moves.
