Sir Christopher Wren Hotel Wedding Photography
Weddings at the Sir Christopher Wren House Hotel
The Sir Christopher Wren House Hotel is overlooked by the towers of Windsor Castle on the banks of the River Thames. The hotel is the original home of the celebrated 17th century architect, Sir Christopher Wren, who was the son of the Dean of St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. King Charles II made him surveyor of the King’s Works, which put him in charge of all building works done for the King. This included rebuilding the churches of London and St. Paul’s Cathedral after the Great Fire of London. In 1689, Wren took over the building of the Guildhall in Windsor. It has a big room above many columns. Wren said it only needed a column at each corner to hold it up. The townsfolk said it needed more or the room would collapse on top of them! Wren eventually agreed to add new columns. He knew he was right though, so he made sure they don’t touch the ceiling and don’t support the room above. Have a look next time you walk underneath, it’s lasted 300 years and hasn’t collapsed yet!
The hotel itself is great for wedding picture opportunities, aided by the fabulous architecture of the hotel both inside and out, plus its proximity in central Windsor to the river, there are so many great backdrops in every direction. The views from the terrace of this charming hotel are pretty special, looking over Eton Bridge and the river Thames couldn’t be any more serene for your wedding guests on a glorious summers day.
I really enjoy capturing wedding photographs in this beautiful setting, my Sir Christopher Wren House Hotel wedding photography gallery above should give you a good insight into this lovely venue.
