Clare and Pascal were married on Saturday at the amazing One Great George Street in Westminster. We were looking forward to photographing the lovely Clare and Pascal at this particular venue but at the same time were wondering if it may be a little stuffy as it is such a grand building. It turned out to be perfect and very friendly. We were asked by the couple for a mixture of both relaxed and a few more posed shots at the venue. The getting ready was extremely laid back and I had great fun with the girls. If you are a fan of Bridget Jones you absolutely must get married at One Great George Street. The scene from the Edge of Reason (Bridget Jones 2) of the lawyers annual dinner, the bit with the quiz, was filmed here. The staff were so very friendly and wonderfully efficient. As amazing as the venue was, it was the incredibly nice families and friends on both sides that made this wedding special. We really were made so welcome, we almost felt like we were one of the family.
Pascal and Clare treated their guests to some beautifully elegant English and French touches mixed in with fun. There was a string quartet playing throughout the afternoon which was a lovely touch. When the candles were lit for dinner and the lights dimmed it was breath taking. Mixed in with this was a fun photo booth by Picture Blast and two gorgeous cakes. The fun bit for us was also the walk about and all the lovely messages of good luck and congratulations shouted from all sides of the streets. After we returned, the staff dropped confetti from the rotunda above which was a lovely touch.
A very big thank you to Katie, Cecile, Stephanie and Helen for being top bridesmaids and incredibly helpful. Also thank you to Aoife, wedding co-ordinator extraordinaire at Great George Street.
Pascal and Clare we wish you the very best for the future. Can’t wait to show you all the shots but for now here are a few to be going on with. Safe journey back to France to all the family and friends.
