Jewish wedding photography in London at Mile End Art Pavillion

I have lived in Bow, in London, and there were a lot of days in Mile End Park hanging out by the canal and around the Art Pavilion.  It’s a huge glass gallery space with amazing light, overlooking water, so it’s pretty dreamy from a photography perspective.  There’s a great mix of urban and nature, so  I was pretty excited when Naomi and Simon got in touch to tell me about their wedding plans.

It was a very East London wedding.  After getting ready separately with their friends and family, we headed to the beautiful Bevis Marks Synagog. Bevis Marks is the oldest synagog in Great Britain.  It’s the beating heart of the East London Jewish community and was established in 1701, to provide refuge to some of the first Jewish settlers in London.

Classic and contemporary London architecture

The architecture is absolutely wonderful.  In fact both of Naomi and Simon’s venues got me really excited for different reasons.  The more traditional setting of the synagog was complimented beautifully by the clean design aesthetic of the pavilion. We also had a fun ride across London on the tube!

Simon and Naomi’s Jewish faith is extremely important to them.  Their really personal day had many Jewish elements that were conducted by friends and family members.  I know they really loved introducing their non Jewish friends to their faith.

On arrival at the Art Pavilion guests hung out in the gardens, before heading inside for Jewish dancing, dinner and the first dance.  I loved sneaking off for portraits with Simon and Naomi and shooting around the canal.  We were treated to some beautiful sunset light.

If you’re looking for a quirky London wedding venue with outside space and beautiful light I’d highly recommend Mile End Art Pavilion.  To see more from Naomi and Simon’s wedding photography there keep scrolling and if you’re looking for a London wedding photographer I’d love to hear from you.
