Comments from Paul Martin:
St James’s Roman Catholic Church is right in the heart of London. It is a spiritual oasis to many people who come in for silent prayers and personal devotion. It serves the deep needs of those who desire to get away from the hurly burly of city life. On the other hand, the various parish liturgical services reflect the richness of catholic traditions and its pastoral orientation caters for all categories of people especially the young and those searching for truth.

St James’s is a beautiful Catholic church, but, photographing inside proved to be one of my greatest challenges, owing to the low light, even on a bright sunny day!. However, I managed to record some great images of a small marriage ceremony, taken mainly from the back of the church, and almost entirely in black & white. Photographers use of tripod utilising slow shutter exposures is absolutely essential, so as to record sufficient background detail in the striking archietecture. A lovely venue, but very limited scope for group photographs either inside or outside. But, there are many suitable wedding reception venues nearby.
