Comments from Paul Martin:
On the corner of Greek Street and Soho Square stands a historic Grade I Listed Georgian mansion described as the “hidden Georgian jewel of Westminster”: The House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho. Dating from the mid18th century, the interior of the House is one of the finest examples of English rococo style decorative plasterwork in London. A majestic entrance hall and ornate wrought-iron staircase leads to a suite of three Historic Rooms overlooking Soho Square.

Originally the home of a wealthy member of parliament, Richard Beckford, the House is now an independent charity providing housing, care and support for homeless women and a historic venue for corporate and private events.

I thoroughly enjoyed recently photographing a wedding reception and dinner at The House of St. Barnabas. The marriage ceremony took place in the small historic and picturesque chapel adjoining the House. As decribed, The House of St. Barnabas is of charming character and a great setting for wedding photographs. The entrance hall and stairs provided a suitable location for group photographs and for bride and groom portraits. The wedding dinner took place in the Council room, which benefits from good natural lighting.

Outdoors, there is small private courtyard where I was able to produce some group portraits. Also, the park in Soho Square provides suitable options for portraits. Here I was able to capture creative ‘London scenes’ by one of the old telephone boxes.

SPT Events Ltd. is an events management company based at The House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho. Director Suzan Chattalou has a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of the industry and is able to organise and advise on variable events in prestigious venues in and around London. I found Suzan most helpful to liaise with in gathering information, and she presided over the wedding I covered at The House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho.

Needless to say, I recommend The House of St. Barnabas-in-Soho as an ideal reception/dinner venue for a small wedding, and for memorable wedding photography. A small selection of photographs of my most recent wedding at the House of St. Barnabas appear below.
