Shirley & Hamish’s wedding at Horniman Museum, Forest Hill, London


A beautiful day in sunny London in this incredible Victorian glasshouse in South London with two of the loveliest people, Shirley and Hamish. As a setting for  a wedding Horniman Museum offers a pretty special space as well as being special place when I was growing up. We used to visit the museum every year, I lived in Bromley and I remember the trip to Forest Hill as being slightly magical. On the one-hand I knew the buildings changed in appearance as we drove closer to London; they seemed slightly more menacing but on the other I knew the museum itself was a place filled with strange and bizarre artefacts.  Lots of biological specimens were mixed in with all kinds of costumes, traditional dress and almost anything you can think of to create an indescribable collection.

So it came as a slight surprise to see it as a wedding venue. A unique element though is that the ceremonies actually take place in an incredible Victorian Conservatory. As the photographs hopefully show it’s a stunning backdrop. As a photographer there is always something alluring about photographing in a huge conservatory.
