Trinity Buoy Wharf Wedding Photography
Living so close to London puts me in easy each of a plethora of cool & unique urban venues and The Chainstore at Trinity Buoy Wharf is one of my all time favourites. The Trinity Buoy Wharf area is packed with character. Sitting on a picturesque location overlooking the Themes, with the O2 Arena and the city of London skyline providing a unique backdrop, for me, being a Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding photographer is an absolute dream.
My first experince of Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding photography was in 2018 and I’ve been itching to go back, so I was delighted when Olina & Tom contacted me to talk about their plans. They were keen on a relaxed day without much fuss for posed photos as they wanted to spend their time enjoying the company of their family and friends – including Olina’s parents who had flown in from Greece. This is ideal for me as it allows me to focus on the people and the moments without turning the day into a structure photoshoot.
As it got close to sunset we took the opportunity for a few relaxed couple pictures around the Trinity Buoy Wharf site, including going to the top of London’s only light house – you can’t not have picture at the top of a lighthouse when your venue has one! Portraits are best done in the early evening. I never want to drag a couple away form their drinks reception for couple pictures – that’s when you should be enjoying the company of your guests. After the meal and speeches is a great time to slip out for 10-15 minutes without anyone noticing. It’s also a good time to spend a a few moments away from the hubbub of the day to slow down and take it all in.
Trinity Buoy Wharf – a customisable space
One of the things I like about photographing at Trinity Buoy Wharf is how the venue is customisable to each couple. At my first Trinity Buoy Wharf wedding Kyrie & Ash got married in front of the huge sliding doors meaning they could take in the beautiful summer sun and the view over the river. This time around Olina & Tom chose to use the fairy lights against the back wall as their backdrop which was very pretty and give a completely different vibe. There are other set up options for the ceremony as well, so couples can choose the setting for their vows which suit them the best.
As a photographer who loves live music and to stay late and photograph the party Olina & Tom were the perfect couple for me as they had a great live band (the excellent Hipster) and guests who were ready to get on the dancefloor and throw some moves.
Below are a selection of images from the day.
“Wow, you captured the vibe and enjoyment of the day so well. Nobody noticed you working and you managed to catch all the the emotions of everything that was going on. Thank you so much!!!”
