London Oratory and Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding – Riverside Celebrations
Melissa & Ed’s Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding
I’d really been looking forward to heading back into London for Melissa and Ed’s wedding at Trinity Buoy Wharf. I’d first met them several months ago when we had their pre-wedding shoot taking in all the sights of London. They are such a lovely couple and that session had been a great way to get to know them better and learn all about the plans for their beautiful wedding day.

Bridal Preparations at Capitol Hotel
The bridal preparations took place in the Capitol Hotel where Melissa dressed in a stunning Jesus Piero dress. It was actually the first of two absolutely beautiful dresses that she wore on the day, in the evening she changed into a gorgeous dress by Rime Arodaky.
The Brompton Oratory London
The ceremony took place in The Brompton Oratory. The layout was unique for a church, with rows of pews facing inwards towards a central aisle. Afterwards, everyone took a boat trip along the Thames to Trinity Buoy Wharf, it really was perfect weather for a boat ride and the views over the Thames were fantastic.
I loved the variety of the locations for portraits, we had vibrant urban scenes at Trinity, beautiful backdrops of roses in Chelsea and the unique setting of the lighthouse interior which felt more like a sauna due to the weather!
I loved so many things about the day…..
Their stunning flower backdrop for the speeches (by King-Wey Hii of Alright Petal), the pretty table settings and illustrations, the most gorgeous floral ombre wedding cake by Bees Bakery and Melissa & Ed’s departure. What a perfect way to end the day, heading off in a boat across the Thames with a backdrop of the O2 Arena and the city’s buildings all lit up against the night sky.
