Comments from Paul Martin:
St. Sarkis Armenian Church in Kensington is a very small but characterful church.

I enjoyed the opportunity of photographing an Armenian wedding at St. Sarkis in May 2005. The church is very small and photographing inside was a challenging experience due to low light and limited space. However, I successfully recorded some beautiful images of the marriage ceremony, mainly from the back of the church. My best shots included one’s using a fish eye lens in which I was able to capture the character of the unique church architecture.

Outside, situations by the door and on the neighbouring street provided me with suitable backdrop for both formal and informal photographs. This enabled me to capture the disitinct character of this leafy area of London. The wedding party then proceeded on to the Barn Hotel in Ruislip for the wedding dinner, where I was able to the bulk of formal group photographs and portraits of Bride & Groom.

Overall, I found St. Sarkis an interesting Church in which to photograph, and a venue I would entertain doing future wedding shoots. However, I would recommend that total number of guests should not exceed more than 80, given the size and limited space.
