King’s College London Wedding Photography – Weddings at the College’s Strand Campus and Chapel


King's College Chapel London Wedding Ceremony

If you have your wedding at King’s College Chapel, your guests will be blown away by the exquisite finish throughout.

King’s College as a Wedding Venue:

There are numerous reasons why you’d benefit from having your wedding day celebrations at King’s College in London.  The fact that it has a rich history and immense beauty are just two.  As a photographer, I can vouch for the fact that you will come away with a stunning set of photographs to cherish for a lifetime.

From the ceremony to the first dance and beyond, King’s College can cater for very small to large wedding parties.  The staff are professional and attentive and will ensure that your day runs smoothly and efficiently.

The Chaplain is very relaxed about wedding photography: This allowed me to take some lovely intimate shots such as this one of the exchange of rings.

King’s College Chapel for Religious Weddings

The College Chapel is one of London’s hidden gems.  Deep inside one of the campus buildings, the chapel is a treasure – very ornate and beautiful to photograph.  Located on the first floor of the King’s Building and directly above the Great Hall, the chapel conducts Christian ceremonies in the Anglican tradition.

If you are interested in having your wedding ceremony in King’s College Chapel, you will probably need to be staff or student at the college but contact the chaplaincy to discuss.

The Bride and Groom enjoy a passionate first kiss: I always ask couples to take their time here, and this pair made the most of this key wedding moment.

Thankfully there is no problem with your photographer taking pictures of the signing. Many registrars request I do not photograph this part of the ceremony, but officiants at religious weddings generally don’t mind.  It’s down to their discretion, though, and I always ask first.

King’s College London:  A Very Brief History:

It’s an absolute privilege for any wedding photographer to photograph a wedding at a venue that’s as much a part of London’s fabric as King’s College.  It’s a bizarre fact that the Duke of Wellington chaired the initial meeting mooting the college and subsequently fought a duel over the decision.  Fortunately, neither party endured injury!  King George IV granted the college a Royal Charter in 1929 and in 1831 the college opened its doors for the first time.  It remains an important institution in the education of students from around the world.

I have photographed one wedding at King’s College, which was in the Chapel and later on the 8th Floor of Bush House (see below).  I’m looking forward to photographing many more in the future, as there’s lots more of this impressive venue that I’d love to explore.

Still laughing, the couple paused to pose outside the entrance to Bush House. Of the whole sequence, this was my favourite as it was the most natural and showed their personalities.

King’s College Strand Campus Wedding Photography Rooms

There are 4 rooms to choose from for your King’s College London wedding photography. Here is a list of all of them, including my take on what makes them unique:

Wedding Couple Kissing as Guests Look On

Inside the 8th Floor at Bush House: The couple had their first dance as soon as they arrived which was very unusual as it was still blazing sunshine outside.

The Great Hall:

Seating up to 200 guests, the Great Hall is King’s College London’s oldest and grandest wedding venue.  Part of the original facilities and built in 1829, the hall is full of period features and a fantastic location for the most lavish wedding day reception.

8th Floor Bush House:

Bush House dates from 1919 and has two large rooms each with a terrace offering views over the city.  Both rooms are light and airy with a modern feel.  Painted a fresh white, they are great for photography.  A bizarre fact is that in 1929, Bush House was considered the ‘most expensive building in the world!’

Council Room:

The Council Room caters for up to 50 guests.  Tastefully decorated in blue and gold, the room is ideal for small to medium-sized weddings at King’s College.

River Terrace:

Perfect for summer weddings, the River Terrace offers scenic views for less formal occasions.

Guests Drinking on Roof Terrace in Sunshine

The roof terrace provides a lovely spot for adults and children to socialise in the summer sunshine and warm weather.

A genuine reportage wedding photograph: Most of my photos happen without the guest’s knowledge. By the time of the reception, most people forget I’m even there, giving me a great chance to take natural photos.

I like this shot: The contrast between action and calm. The stillness of the man perfectly compliments the children playing.
