Documentary wedding photography at the Radisson Edwardian, Canary Wharf

I recently documented Gemma and Leon's elegant wedding at the Hotel Radisson Edwardian in Canary Wharf, London.

The Radission Edwardian in Canary Wharf is quite simply stunning, I'm not overly keen on new venues but the layout of the Radission really lends itself to my style of reportage wedding photography. The available light is exceptional and the rooms and corridors are cleverly thought out - there's always potential to create more dimensional, layered images with the merging spaces and competing view points in one form or another.

Being on the river makes it ideal to take couples for a five to ten minute walk for portraiture and fortunately on this day, we had beautiful warm winter sun during our walk.

I'm so pleased with Gemma and Leon's London wedding wedding, their ceremony overlooked the 02 Arena and their drinks reception took place in the mirrored hallway and gallery bar before guests were called into the main room for the wedding breakfast, speeches and evening entertainment.

It was quite an emotional day for Gemma's family and I felt truly privileged to be part of it and to get to know them all.

Hey Allister all we have to say...

Thank you so so much from the bottom of our hearts, you have told our story down to a tee.

They are perfect in every way and more than we could have hoped for!

Leon and Gemma
