Being a London wedding photographer, Syon Park and the Syon Park Great Conservatory was definitely on my wish list as far as wedding photography venues go, oh how I had longed to be booked for a wedding here!! And the day came!!  Josa and Tom booked with me last year and were just so wonderfully relaxed about the whole thing, I  can’t stress how much I enjoyed working with them on their wedding day, I started off with Josa at her parents house in Chiswick, it was from there that we headed to St Columbus’s church in Kensington, I was SO wowed by this as a wedding ceremony venue, the policy on wedding photography IS rather strict here, but as always I DO respect this and hung well back during the ceremony, so that the couple were unfettered whilst they were married.

It was then, and I really can only think of this to describe it; a wacky races rally down the A4 to try and beat the coachloads of guests in time took place and PHEW!!!  We JUST made it in time for the receiving line, it was then onto group shots in the beautiful Syon House courtyard, where champagne flowed and canapés were chomped.  I did manage to squirrel Josa and Tom away from their guests for a very swift set of couples portraits in the long gallery and I am so pleased I did, we were spoilt for choice with not only the beautiful Syon House setting itself, but also the light (it was a great escape from the blistering sun too!) After the group shots (which, as a considerate wedding photographer, I try and keep short and sweet and perfectly well executed!!)  We headed over to the Syon Park Great Conservatory, where the guys from Tapenade cuisine were waiting with a glass of champagne for our newlyweds. I stayed until a fair bit after the first dance so I could have a play around with some creative wedding photography with the amazing glass building, then left the wedding party dancing the night away, what a day, I went home one happy and content photographer!
