In the very middle of the city, yet somewhat hidden away, is The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn. It’s the grounds of one of the four Inns of Court to which barristers belong and are called to the Bar. It’s one of the most prestigious professional bodies of judges and lawyers in the world.
Lincoln’s Inn holds a lot of sentimental value for Eleanor’s family. Her grandfather was a member and her parents were married in the Lincoln’s Inn chapel as well. They’ve held many important family functions in the Great Hall. So it was only natural that Eleanor and Jonathan would want to hold their wedding there.
After getting ready at her parents home, Eleanor hoped in special white London Taxi to take her the Chapel of Lincolns Inn. Because the Chapel is still a very conservative church, we were asked not to photograph the ceremony, but only the entrance, exit and the signing of the register.
Eleanor and Jon had set up a bit of a festival on the lawn of Lincoln’s Inn, complete with rubber ducks and “air” guitars and even a swing boat fairground ride. Even as it started rain, the guests really embraced their special festival in the middle of Central London.
Just as soon as it started to rain a bit heavier, it was time to move into the Great Hall of Lincolns Inn for the wedding breakfast and reception. It’s incredible to think that a space incredible isn’t a museum but still a functioning space, and it still holds daily members lunches.
Nel and Jon- Thank you so much for having me and my second shooter be apart of your incredible wedding. Both you, your friends and family were so amazing to photograph during the day and we really felt the love in the room.
