A wedding ceremony at the Rosendale is simply beautiful. Especially on a day when the sun is shinning as was the case for the wedding of R & M. The Rosendale is very big pub in West Dulwich. It is big and airy. The first floor is reserved for wedding functions and there is also an outdoors area reserved for the drinks reception. I have documented a fair amount of weddings at the Rosendale and everything has always been great. And it as no exception for the wedding of R & M. Sue, who is in charge of weddings, does a great job at making sure everything runs to time and the bride and groom have a great experience.
My day started at the bride’s house. There was a great vibe in the morning, with people coming in and out, kids waking up from their nap and people getting ready for the wedding. It is special to get ready at home, I think that the images are meaningful and show also a little bit of daily life. I enjoyed capturing images of the grand parents looking after and playing with the bride and groom children.
The wedding ceremony was lovely at the Rosendale. I arrived early enough to capture a few shots of the guests and the groom prior to the ceremony. Guests can have a drink at the pub before heading upstairs for the ceremony. Very nice indeed! The ceremony was special as the bride and groom’s children walked down the aisle as well as their nieces. There were some funny moments during the ceremony as well as some more motional one’s. After R & M said their “I do’s”, we all headed to the garden for the drinks reception. I love seeing people mingling and having fun. The sun was in and out but it was nice and warm outside. We took some time to take a few family photos as well as portraits of the bride and groom before heading up for the wedding breakfast.
The wedding breakfast was preceded by the cutting of the cake and followed by some lovely and meaningful speeches. Guests were the invited to enjoy evening drinks in the adjacent room, in the bar or in the garden area. During this time, the room was seamlessly turned around for the first dance and evening party. I was a joy to documenting the wedding of R & M, both lovely couple with beautiful children. Everyone was very friendly and I enjoyed getting to them and their families a little bit.
It was a really good day at the Rosendale, a wedding venue that I enjoy working at. If you are considering your wedding ceremony at The Rosendale (or any other venue for that matter), I would love to hear from you and have a chat about your wedding plans. Thanks so much for visiting my site and for reading.
