Richard and Fiona's Wedding at Kensington and Chelsea Register Office

Congratulations to Fiona and Richard. What a wonderful wedding! We met at about 8.30am for a very early wedding and started by taking photographs at a flower stall near the steps of Chelsea Old Town Hall. He wasn't amused!

It was only 11 minutes before the ceremony when Richard asked me to be one of the witnesses and we were tasked with hunting around for a second one. We spotted Len and Ian on the scaffolding doing a bit of painting so Richard went off to ask them while Fiona and I annoyed the flower vendor by taking photographs on his stall. The decorators seemed a bit surprised and very amused by Richard's request. After some gentle persuasion paint brushes and tins were abandoned and we laughed all the way to the Rosetti Room for the ceremony.

Instead of the usual exchange of rings Fiona had bought Richard a lovely watch which she put on him during the 'exchanging of rings'. Ian, Len and I were so busy gazing at the lovely watch we almost didn't notice when our couple entered the room! The ceremony was short but very intimate and moving. Sadly, my name can't be found on their marriage certificate so I will have to make do with having it on the photos instead...

After the knot had been tied we took some photos on the iconic steps outside the registry office and continued with our scaffolding theme!

It was a privilege to be part of such a special moment and Fiona tells me that the rest of their day was just as special and fun.
