Orleans House Gallery Wedding Photography


Louise and Aaron

Orleans House Gallery is a free public art gallery in Twickenham in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames and managed by Richmond Arts Service. The stunning Grade I Listed Octagon Room is available for weddings and can accommodate up to 60 guests. It’s a beautiful setting nestled in woodland next to the River Thames.

I had never visited the gallery before, so I was delighted to be asked by Louise and Aaron to photograph their wedding at this beautiful venue. As a photographer I’m always drawn to great light and the huge windows in the Octagon Room fill the space with beautiful, flattering light.

After the marriage ceremony the couple emerged to a shower of confetti and made the short walk down to the river for the boat trip along the Thames to The Wharf restaurant in Teddington.

ORLEANS HOUSE GALLERY IS A SPECTACULAR SPACE FLOODED WITH BEAUTIFUL LIGHT. ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WEDDING CEREMONY ROOMS IN LONDON.

The weather threw everything at us on the boat, but slate-grey skies soon gave way to spectacular sunshine and rainbows as we arrived at Teddington Lock. The restaurant had been transformed with flowers by Johanna Pedrick creating a stunning backdrop for the rest of the day. Although my style is to photograph the natural moments of the day, I always like to take the bride and groom off for a short portrait session. The nearby Teddington footbridge was a great spot and a welcome chance for Louise and Aaron to get some fresh air and have a few moments to themselves, away from all their guests.

In all, a wonderful wedding in a beautiful venue and thanks to Louise and Aaron for having me along for the day to photograph it all.
