Temple Church London Weddings: The Temple Church in London has a long and varied history. According to its Wikipedia article, The Temple Church is a late 12th-century church in London located between Fleet Street and the River Thames, built for and by the Knights Templar as their English headquarters.
And whilst I was very enamoured to stand on the very steps that Tom Hanks did in the famous film based around the Knights Templar, it was on this special day in July that the famous old church took a back stage in the wedding ceremony of David and Carol.
For such a huge building, with such history, its actually quite a simple church. It’s also round.
A round church (so I’m told) make the acoustics impeccable and so it was, when the choir sang Carol and her son down the aisle at 3pm on that day it was as if the angels themselves were signing.
As a wedding photographer I’ve shot near on 300 weddings now and I never get tired of watching the entrance of the bride.
On this occasion though, with the history and the music that engulfed this moment – it did seem particularly special.
Once the wedding ceremony was complete, David, Carol and their guests spilled out onto the outer Temple courtyard for some photographs and congratulations time.
There after, a London Wedding Route-master whisked them off to The Savoy, where the rest of their wedding celebrations were to be held.
Kind Words from David & Carol
“We are absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos. As you said, they do absolutely capture the essence of our wedding day, and for us it is a wonderful way to re live the moment over and over.
” – Carol
