Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

All Saints Church, London, UK Elopement Photo Story Award

All Saints Church, London, England Elopement Photography | married at All Saints Church in London with just nineteen guests

Francine and Peter were married at All Saints Church in London with just nineteen guests. Because All Saints Church is incredibly large and elaborate with high, vaulted ceilings, they decided to fill up the space with the voices of a beautiful choir.

After leaving the church, they went for a meal and reception at Sketch Restaurant in London, a very trendy eatery in the heart of the city.

Here we can see the splendor of All Saints Church as the bride and groom, standing together at the altar and surrounded by the choir, appear dwarfed by the massive room.
