Photo Of The Week 1 / by Simon Cardwell

Hello & welcome to a new regular feature here on my blog. I thought it would be nice to share with you 1 photograph per week, every Friday, from my archive.

It gives me a chance to showcase the breadth of what i have stored up on hard drives from the last 12 years.

In that time I have shot hundreds of weddings & attended every sort of occasion you could imagine.


With that in mind I am going to take you back to 2011 & to a very special job I was very lucky to get. This wedding took place at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London.

From memory, the brie & groom told me if you are an OBE, MBE or a CBE your children are entitled to get married at St. Paul’s Cathedral. In this instance the groom’s father was a decorated member of the navy, so he took up the option of using this magnificent building for his wedding day.

I haven’t met another photographer that has shot in there up to now, which should give you an idea what a unique opportunity this was:

Stay tuned for the next photo in this new series next Friday, & each week after that. In the meantime you can have a look at more of my photos here.
