When Nada and Zac asked me to be their Chandos House wedding photographer I was looking forward to photographing at another interesting London wedding venue for the first time. The wedding was a true mix of cultures as the historic house hosted Zac’s French family with some of Nada’s family travelling from Sudan.
The preparation as well as the ceremony were at the central London mansion house which made the usually tricky logistics of a London wedding a little easier to handle.
The house itself sticks out from its neighbours in that the Craighleigh stone, imported from its original owners' Edinburgh quarry is unique amongst it's neighbours. Today's owners, the Royal Society of Medicine, use the 17 bedrooms and multiple function rooms to put on a great party for wedding guests.
We shot a few group photographs on the steps of Chandos House, and a couple of portraits between courses before the speeches and cake cutting. There was then a quick outfit change before a Sudanese ceremony led into the First Dance. Because of the nature of these historic London Houses, there are always great spaces filled with interesting light to allow me to really explore some great creative wedding photography.
