Marina & Mathias live in Luxembourg, so were always going to need some help pulling this epic wedding together. In step Katrina Otter, one of the very best! Between them they created a truly magical event and it was a total joy to capture. Photographing a Natural History Museum wedding was always on the bucket list for me, I remember visiting as a child and being amazed by the sheer size of everything. And all lit up at night it is a truly remarkable spectacle to behold.
The keen-eyed among you will notice the ceremony itself is actually at another venue. The lovely BMA House on Tavistock Square played host to this part of the day, whilst a team of busy planners, stylists and lighting experts weaved their magic over at NMH. And when we did arrive, everyone’s breath was taken away by what they had created.
Taking wedding photos underneath ‘Hope’ the huge blue whale was so surreal. A Natural History Museum wedding is definitely a little different to your average event. Lots of use of wide angle lenses is needed to capture the scale of things, so I had my architectural photography head on at times!
This was a truly amazing wedding, and I feel honoured to have been chosen to capture it. Taking wedding photos at the Natural History Museum is so much fun, I can’t wait to be back. So, if you’re having your wedding at the NMH and would love to talk more, please do drop me a line. I can’t wait to hear from you, and plan what magic we can create together!
