It’s not every bride who willingly allows football to dominate their wedding day, but for Chelsea Football Club fan Sharanjit and her groom Jatindar it was a necessity when they tied the knot in the club’s grounds.

Sharanjit and Jatindar chose the Vialli Suite to exchange their wedding vows with Southwark Registrars.  Sharanjit was a little late for her wedding, which left Jatindar quite a bit of time to get nervous.

Isn’t the blue of Sharanjit’s gown gorgeous! And entirely intended for a Chelsea Football Club wedding!

There’s often a moment when the groom wonders if the ring is going to go on the bride’s finger; this was one of those moments.

Guests celebrate by throwing confetti. Lots of confetti.

Jatindar is VERY proud of his shiny new gold wedding ring

Sharanjit, Jatindar and I went into the stands for some portraits of the two of them – relatively quickly given the windy and cool day – which finished off their wedding photography booking.
