All Saints West Dulwich wedding

This was a local wedding for me, five minutes down the road at All Saints Church in West Dulwich. The church actually burnt down about 10 years ago, which I could see from my window. The building is therefore half the original  thats been cleaned up, but still a bit rough around the edges, and half  modern architecture that they’ve beautifully incorporated into the old structure.

All Saints’ rose from the ashes—literally. The church was gutted by a fire in June 2000. With only the towering Victorian walls left standing, the ruined building was open to the sky. But the congregation decided that All Saints should be restored. The church opened again at Easter 2006, its walls and pillars deliberately left showing the scars of the flames.

John and Kelly filled the church with their loved ones and plenty of the congregation. Kelly wore her mothers wedding dress, which brought tears to her dad’s eyes. And her bouquets were a lovely creation by her mum, a mixture of broaches and fabric flowers.

Below are some images from their lovely day.





Whatever your plans are, I’d love to hear from you!

I’m based in Oxford, but if you’re celebrating somewhere else, and you want me to come and capture your big day, I’ll be there!
