Comments from Paul Martin:
The Westminster County Courts were elegantly converted to a Browns Restaurant in 1996. The building now comprises a 320 seat restaurant and bar on the Ground floor, which is open for lunch, afternoon tea, pre and post theatre suppers and of course dinner. The bar boasts a fine selection of cocktails. Upstairs The Courtrooms, which still retain the Bench and Judges Chairs, are available for private hire for Meetings, Company Presentations and Product Launches as well as for Lunch and Dinner Parties.

I enjoyed the opportunity of photographing a small wedding ceremony and dinner at this unique venue. The rooms have been tastefully maitained and throughout my shoot, I was able to obtain images that conveyed the historical character befitting it’s past. My coverage was largely informal/ reportage sequences that captured the spirit and atmosphere of the occassion. On the top floor, there is suitable space to undertake group photographs. I was also able to produce some ‘arty’ takes of the bride & groom on the spiral stair case, in the judges seats and in front of the bar area. There was also time to take outdoor photographs in Trafalgar Square nearby, giving a distinctively ‘London feel’ to the resulting repotage photographs.

Browns Restaurant Covent Garden is an excellent London venue for a small civil wedding ceremony /dinner/ reception. I loved the unsual wedding photography moments at this very unique venue.
