Comments from Paul Martin:
Founded in 1860, Thames Rowing Club is based on the Putney Embankment in West London. Catering for all, from juniors to veterans, from novices to internationals, Thames is currently the largest and most successful rowing club in the United Kingdom.

I recently enjoyed the occassion of photographing a wedding reception and party at this delightful, and historic venue. A civil marriage ceremony had taken place earlier in the afternoon nearby at the fashionable Chelsea Town Hall. Guests were transfered to Thames Rowing Club in an old fashioned double decker London Bus.

The main function room at Thames Rowing Club enjoys a wonderful panoramic view of the Thames. The possibilities for memorable wedding photography immediately outdoors are endless. I captured some beautiful informal/ reportage portraits of the bridal couple overlooking the river. The rooms in Thames Rowing club, particularly the main hall, are spacious and benfit from good natural lighting. The rooms are character filled with paintings and memorabelia, which serve as a timely reminder to the rich heritage of this prestigious London rowing club.

In summary, I rate Thames Rowing Club a very suitable river side venue to host your wedding reception in Putney, and a location where you will be assured of fantastic wedding photographs. Highlights of my recent wedding depicting the main features of Thames Rowing Club appear below.
