Wedding photography opportunities at Addiscombe Catholic Church

Addiscombe Catholic Church, Our Lady of the Annunciation is a modern redbrick Surrey wedding venue situated a couple of miles from East Croydon station that offers some great atmospheric wedding photo opportunities.

Built in December 1964 it will be celebrating its Golden Jubilee in 2014 and to mark the event it has been involved in various fundraising events to pay for some extensive refurbishment: the church has now been totally rewired with new lighting installed and the external walls have been repainted with the internal redecoration to start in the new year.

Whilst there is a substantial car park at Our Lady of the Annunciation there is nothing in the way of greenery, the church being located in a residential road, so for any group wedding photographs with a pleasant green backdrop we recommend taking the wedding guests to a nearby green space such as Ashburton Park a short walk away or to the wedding reception venue if appropriate.

For wedding photographs inside the church there is plenty of room to move around with a wide central aisle and plenty of space down each of the side ailsles allowing for a greater range of wedding pictures throughout the ceremony. Importantly for us as wedding photographers this allows quick and easy access from the front to the back of the church giving the option to get up to the balcony for some atmospheric aerial wedding photos though as in all cases it's always advisable to get the permission of the church organist who's domain it is.

Unlike many traditional Catholic Churches the decor is sparse and basic: plain pictures hang on the walls and there is a simple alter on a raised granite platform, the walls either side of the central feature of Christ on the cross being decorated in a pattern of yellow hexagons. Whether this changes in the refurbishment is to be seen. The Bride and Groom are situated to the right side of the alter but more importantly for the wedding photographs during the ceremony, they sit in front of glass windows and doors so close up shots with a large telephoto lens is required if the glass background is to be minimised. The light inside Our Lady of the Annunciation is great for unobtrusive wedding photography throughout the church and especially on the raised platform which is perfect for capturing the bible readings and the Bride and Groom signing the wedding register.

We have always found that Catholic Church parish priests are pretty relaxed with regards to wedding photographers and wedding photography in general and Father Joe O'Connor at Addiscombe Catholic Church is no exception.

All in all, whilst Addiscombe Catholic Church Our Lady of the Annunciation isn't a visually quaint or ornate church for traditional wedding photography its great space and light do present wonderful opportunities for some great natural flowing wedding photographs.
