It goes without saying that if I shoot a wedding on New Years Eve I’ll certainly be seeing in the new year with everyone there. What better place to do so that at someones wedding, (there’s usually a lot of free cheese around too).
This was the case last NYE when I was covering Polly and Ben’s wedding at the Banking Hall in London.
The venue is pretty much opposite the Royal Exchange in Cornhill so you couldn’t get any more London if you tried to.
It was black ties all round for their wedding and a lovely to experience to be a part of. Polly arrived with her family via London routemaster while Ben was waiting at the end of the marble aisle for her.
The venue is such that the walk to Ben was a long one and this started from the top of the staircase. The music played Polly in and they tied the knot a little past 4pm.
Straight after we had a big group shot on the stairs and some confetti outside before the usual photos and mingling took place.
Their band sang the night away as Polly and Ben danced together before the dj took over and saw the New Year in with a large number of confetti cannons fired from the DJ box when the clock struck midnight.
It was a lovely wedding and something that little bit more special because we saw in the new year with them.
Here are some more photos from their day:
