Comments from Paul Martin:
St. Benedict’s Parish Church, better known as The Abbey Church, is a spacious ‘Cathedral like’ Roman Catholic church situated in a leafy area of North Ealing. The Church is built of Ham Hill stone, Bere stone and Guiting stone with flint dressing in plinth and parapet, in perpendicular Gothic style. It has a multi-coloured hammer-beam roof supported by stone arches. The West window contains stained glass by Burlison & Grylls depicting the Coronation of the Virgin Mary. Many pews, some statues and the stations of the Cross are of Austrian oak, carved by Ferdinand Stufflesser (Tyrolese). The Chapel of St Boniface in the right hand aisle was funded by the then German Government in reparation of war damage (1964). The Organ (I974) was designed by A. Rushworth to the specification of C. Atkinson, and was built by Rushworth and Dreaper of Liverpool.

Ealing Abbey is spacious with ample seating and there are few beutiful stain glass windows (most notably at the entrance) Available daylight is good, thus, there is an opportunity for spontaneous natural photographs of proceedings with minimal intrusion. Without doubt, the most impressive feature are the many steps leading to entrance and the general decor around doorway. This is very impressive situation for both group photography (particularly whole wedding party shot of guests). There are good situations for creative bride and groom portraits, particularly by the doorwell and porches. Also, there is very small section of lawn to left, where some photographs can be taken. If weather is unfavourable, group photo’s may be taken inside at the alter. Overall, St. Benedict’s Church, Ealing Abbey is a good venue for wedding photography in Ealing.

Ealing based Paul Martin, has photographed several events at Ealing Abbey. Photographic highlights of previous weddings.
