Fine art wedding photography – Captured by Depict.
Rod and Emma were married at the wonderful 28 portland place which is located in Marylebone, London. The venue is stunning with its big windows that pour light into the beautifully ornate ceremony room.
It was a joy to capture the marriage of a couple whose roots very much lie in London. Rod a born and bred Londoner and Emma who truly has lost her heart to this city – and to Rod of course. The celebration tied in their love of London and Emma’s Japanese heritage. From bright red London buses to take their guests from Portland Place to The Oyster Shed to Origami cranes hanging from trees and chandeliers. From Calibans dream, music played at the Olympic opening ceremony and now their signing of the register, to Taiko drummers escorting them to their reception.
After arriving at the venue guests were entertained looking out onto the Thames with views of Tower bridge and the Shard. During the drinks reception the Taiko drummers performed an incredible set finishing with Rod and Emma having a drum off!
A fairly new venue for weddings the Oyster Shed was such a great space – so full of light which for us film photographers suited us perfectly. Again with views looking out over the river accompanied by some very tasty food and very attentive staff it was the perfect London spot.
As mentioned previously we were lucky enough for this wedding to be featured on London Bride last month. You can see the full post here
