Kings Chapel Amersham wedding photos | Helen and Harj
Helen and Harj’s wedding took place at a new venue for me – the King’s Chapel in Old Amersham, Buckinghamshire. Set in its own grounds behind the King’s Arms Hotel, it’s a converted 18th century chapel. It makes a great wedding venue as it’s spacious and airy inside with plenty of daylight and has a terrace with a shady garden behind the building.
Amersham was an area where the Baptist and Quaker religious movements took hold in the 17th and 18th centuries, and King’s Chapel started life as the old Baptist meeting house. It was rebuilt in 1784 and extended in the 1840s to add a school. A plaque commemorating this is still in place by the entrance. After use as a private residence for some years the building was taken over and renovated by the King’s Arms in 2013 and now makes a great location for civil weddings and receptions.
Helen got ready in one of the upstairs rooms, before following her bridesmaids down into the Chapel for the wedding ceremony.
Pictures in the garden
After the wedding ceremony the bride and groom and their guests gathered on the terrace and in the garden behind the chapel, where of course we did some family group photos and pictures of the couple on their own. Not to mention pictures of the kids running around and having fun!
Meanwhile the staff were preparing the main Chapel room for the wedding breakfast. After the speeches, the couple cut the cake and then it was time for dancing in the room next door.
It was a pleasure to photograph Helen and Harj’s special day – wishing them all the best for their future together.
