Jennifer and Jonathan’s Temple Church wedding was quite a meeting of cultures; American and English, Christian and Jewish and some London sophistication thrown into the mix too. The result was a rather fabulous wedding!
My day began with Jennifer and the girls to record them getting ready in an apartment at Middle Temple. The preparations were so relaxed, with lots of laughter. This might possibly have been helped by the Mimosas delivered during the morning by the groomsmen. From the apartment it was just a short stroll to the spectacular Temple Church with it’s medieval architecture and stunning stained glass windows.
The wedding ceremony added Jewish elements to the standard Christian service, taking place under a chuppah set up at the front of the church. Following the ceremony and group photos, the guests made their way to the reception while we took couple portraits at various spots around Temple. We also popped down to the Embankment for a last few portraits beside the Thames. From there we hopped in a cab to speed us back to their guests for the reception at The Old Bank of England on Fleet Street.
The first dance was followed by traditional Israeli dancing. It certainly made for a chaotic dance floor and gave me lots to photograph. Eventually the party settled into a conventional disco to finish off the evening.
