Jane and James’ Wedding, Old Royal Naval College
Jane and James were married on July 4th 2009 at the Old Royal Naval College, Greenwich, London.
The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich is one of the most beautiful places in London. In fact, it’s been designated a World Heritage Site and is considered to be the “finest and most dramatically sited architectural and landscape ensemble in the British Isles.”
Jane arrived fashionably early, with her Dad and bridesmaids.

Jane and her family are from Ireland – James and his family are from Australia. It was a great crowd, and the cheer they gave for their bride and groom in this photo was the loudest of any wedding I’ve photographed yet… and that’s up against some pretty stiff competition!

It was also Jane’s Dad’s birthday and instead of a wedding cake, there was a 70th birthday cake.

Just before James and Jane walked into their reception I said, “when you get to the top of the steps, turn around and look at me. It will be like the final scene of the film, ‘The Gathering Storm.’ Then you can have your very own ‘Albert Finney’ moment – he was the actor playing Churchill.”
‘I don’t know who Albert Finney is,’ replied James, ‘but I want one of his moments!’
