Wedding Photography at Morden Park House, Merton

Morden Park House is Extremely Photogenic

I have photographed weddings at Merton Register Office (often mistakenly referred to as Registry Office) a few times now and it is a venue that keeps on giving.  Also known as Morden Park House, the venue is within the grounds of Morden Park.  On arrival, it’s existance isn’t immediately obvious, being secluded somewhat by the modern South Thames College off the A24.  When the Georgian Grade II listed building did reveal itself to me, I found it to be a gem of a wedding venue and, extremely photogenic.

The Bride enters the Sheridan Room with her baby daughter to meet her Groom waiting at the ‘altar’.

The Sheridan Room is very light and bright with lots of room to experiment with unusual photos like this one.

A moment later and I zoom in closer to take this gorgeous shot of the Bride looking into the lens. Connection between people and the photographer is always good at weddings.


The Sheridan Room Provides Plenty of Space for Photography

The marriage ceremonies I’ve photographed at Merton all took place in the Sheridan Room which backs out onto the park.  I immediately fell in love with the room as it had beautifully large windows and French doors on two sides, allowing the most gorgeous Spring morning light to filter in.  Bounced flash would definitely not be required!  There was also plenty of space to move around at the front enabling me to photograph discretely from all sides.  The room has recently undergone a facelift.  Gone are the carpet and huge window drapes.  The room now has a crisp and fresh look.

The Sheridan Room has recently been refurbished, giving it a nice bright and airy feel.


The Merton Registrars

The registrar’s at Merton Register Office seemed very relaxed about wedding photography; I didn’t even get the usual talk about not photographing the register signing afterwards.   I shoot in a very low-key way and I think that registrars appreciate this approach.   It’s as important for me to observe the sense of occasion as it is to get the shot.  OK, maybe almost as important…


Wedding Couple with Daughter at Merton Register Office

Your photographer has the luxury of moving around a lot during the ceremony. I like to take photos from a variety of different positions to capture the expressions and special moments such as this one and the next..


Wedding Ceremony with Baby Raching for Groom

The happy couple’s daughter stole the show throughout their wedding ceremony.


After the ceremony, the couple exit the room to the ornate, marble paved entrance hall with grand staircase, pillars and mirrors.  This lends itself immediately to posed couple shots and time may be spent here before a few formal group shots at the front of the house.  I haven’t ended up using the park, but there is plenty of potential for couples wishing to incorporate it into their special day.

The exchange of rings is a sequence of must have shots.

In this shot of the reading, you can see the amount of light coming through the front French windows.


Morden Park House Wedding Ceremony Rooms

The Sheridan Room:  The smallest wedding ceremony room in the house benefits from French windows which open directly onto Morden Park.  The room seats 20 guests, but you can invite up to 30.  Recently redecorated, the room has a fresh and light feel and is perfect for photography.

The Lord Nelson Room:  With it’s gorgeous Georgian Bay Windows and ornate crystal chandelier, this room can seat up to 40 guests comfortably.  A view of the courtyard and direct access to the magnificent staircase means this room will provide great opportunities for your wedding photography.

The Ewart Room:  For larger weddings at Morden Park House, the Ewart Room is perfect.  It is located upstairs and can seat up to 100 guests.  Merton.gov’s ceremony brochure sugests booking early as this room is very popular.  You can even book live music such as a string quartet to add to the ambience.

There is also a gazebo to get married in at the back of the venue in the garden.  Unfortunately, photography is only allowed there for guests using it to get married.  I asked on behalf on one couple if this would be possible and the venue was very strict about this.

I love photographs like this. If you look closely you can see lots of things going on that aren’t at first glance obvious.

Merton Register Office also provides a great backdrop for your group wedding photography. Although this one doesn’t demonstrate that too much, I love the brief moment of affection.
