Comments from Paul Martin:
St. Agatha Catholic Church occupies an attractive building situated in a quiet, leafy residential area of Kingston-Upon-Thames.

I recently enjoyed the opportunity of photographing a wedding ceremony at St. Agatha’s on a pleasant Spring day. The Church has an attractive entrance with a small courtyard, sufficient for undertaking both small and large group photographs. Also, the pub immediately opposite provides an interesting setting for some informal and small groups. Infact, I initially met up with the groom and his party before the wedding ceremony, where I was able to record some pleasing photographs. A local TA Centre provided an interesting background for a ‘reservoir dogs’ style group fo the groom, his best man and ushers!

Photographing inside St. Agatha Catholic Church was a delight. Although the natural light peeling inside was low, the light coloured attractive decor, coupled with beautful stain glass windows provided a stunning a regal setting. With the use of largely tripod mounted camera exposures, i was able to capture many beautiful reportage photographs of the ceremony without employing the use of flash lighting. Subsequently, I produced quite a few group photographs at the end of the ceremony, owing to the April like showers!. Fortunately this cleared up thus allowing me to do a large group photograph and the throwing of confetti shot outside the entrance. The bride & groom and their guests were than transfered in an old single decker London bus to a wedding dinner reception at the beautiful Petersham Village Hall nearby in Bute Avenue.

In summary, I rate St. Agatha Catholic Church as a lovely venue for a wedding ceremony in Kingston, and one where you are assured of beautiful photographs. Highlights of the above-mentioned wedding appear below.
