I’ll be honest with you – the majority of the weddings I photograph these days are civil ceremonies, whether it’s at a luxury hotel or a bespoke wedding venue. In fact, I can count all the church weddings I’ve attended over the last few years on the fingers of one hand, and I think that’s a real shame.
Of course, everyone has their own beliefs, values and opinions on religion and whether or not a church wedding is right for them, and it’s a very personal decision. However, I’d be amazed if anyone entered a church as magnificent as Christ Church in Erith and not have their breath snatched swiftly away.
So when Sharon and Martin asked me to photograph their church wedding, I jumped at the chance! I hope you’ll agree from the photographs below just how beautiful Christ Church is, and how fabulous Sharon and Martin looked on their special day. I wish them all the happiness in the world for their lives together.
I’d also like to thank the lovely folks at Christ Church for making me feel very welcome, and especially the resident priest Simon Archer. I mean, how can you not admire someone who takes a moment to grab a selfie with the happy couple? Respect!
