Wedding Photography Selsdon Park Hotel


The wedding of Leanne and (Professional League One footballer) Jermaine took place at St John’s Church and Selsdon Park Hotel. In a way this wedding closed a circle for me, as I took my very first wedding photograph at St John's when I was about 12 years old! A builder who was demolishing a WW2 shelter in our garden was getting married over the weekend, so without telling him, I took my secondhand 60s Kodak Instamatic and grabbed a photo when the couple exited the church! I was in the Scouts and in the choir at this church, so have always wanted to photograph a wedding at my old local church St John’s, so that box has now been ticked. As you can see from the scanned copy of the print here, it has faded quite a lot over the years!  
What was different about the exit of the church in 2017 is that the wedding party burst into spontaneous dancing in pure joy and celebration. A really fun couple to photograph and working around a very bright sun, we got some wonderful images of their fantastic day.
