Documentary Wedding Photography – Blackheath Halls Wedding Kieran and Vicky
Vicky and Kieran have been together 25 years. They have two teenage children and decided they wanted to get married. They didn’t want any formal photographs. Wanting instead a documentary wedding photographer to tell the story of their day.
What a wonderful day it was, happy, fun and emotional. Blackheath Halls is a great wedding venue, built in 1895 as a Victorian concert hall. The great hall is spectacular, boasting a high vaulted ceiling with amazing acoustics. The wedding ceremony took place in a more intimate upstairs room which was full of friends and relatives. Kieran’s brother played the piano whilst all the guests had song sheets and sang along. There was plenty of fun and laughter as well as a few tears of happiness. I loved mixing with the guests, taking candid photographs.
The great hall was beautifully decked out with flowers. On the stage were giant letters in lights, spelling out Vicky’s new surname. What was great about this wedding was that amongst the 150 guests, 50 of them were under 19. The children had great fun with a host of things to keep them entertained. In fact, a game of baby football happily kept 10 children entertained for a long time.
It was a beautiful sunny day at the end of May. The guests enjoyed spilling outside with their drinks, before filling the dance floor following Kieran and Vicky’s first dance in 25 years as a married couple.
