Why I love photographing weddings at The Union Club
- It’s a unique and intimate venue in the heart of Soho
- Interesting decor, lots of colours, textures and quirky features
- Two very different dining areas, both with bags of personality
- Eclectic artwork provides a great backdrop and layering for documentary photography
Nestled in the heart of Soho, The Union Club is a hidden gem. Built in 1736, it has been a brothel, a gambling and drinking den, and no doubt its walls have many stories to tell. It’s a Bohemian and eclectic private member’s club that hosts intimate weddings. It’s packed full of eclectic artwork, blue plaques, and antique furniture. It’s a great venue for a laid back, intimate wedding, and I love photographing weddings there.
The dining room in The Union Club seats up to 60, and is a cosily intimate room filled with mismatched pictures. The large windows look out over bustling Greek Street. The low lighting and rich colours means it’s a perfect winter wedding venue. The club recently acquired the building next door and has turned it into a light and airy warehouse space. So two distinct vibes set over 4 floors and a cute little roof terrace. A unique wedding venue that is definitely worth a look.
