A few photos of the couple at the altar of this lovely church.

And finally, husband and wife!

Not to mention this lovely moment from this privileged point of view. The bride and the groom just right before their first kiss as just declared husband and wife. It is definitely my favourite photo of this wedding story. The moment was a bit slow, so I had the chance to frame the photo as I wanted, and the church in the background helped very much.

Here the ceremony was just ending, with the bride and groom preparing to get out if the church.

Before going to the old church for the wedding reception we spent a few moments in tghe backyard of the ceremony church. The wedding guests had some drinks, the children played and me and the bride and groom took some wedding photos. This one, in particular, was a nice bench surroundend by grass and flowers, a rellay good place for some nice portraits of the newly husband and wife.

Again, some more photos just before leaving.

As I mentioned before, the kids played a lot during this moment of rest and relaxing.

Finally, here we are, in the old church ready for the ceremony. They set up the altar with a long table to seat the bride and groom and their parents and close relatives.

The bride and her bridesmaids were in a lovely flat with a beautiful view on the sea.

When there is a beautiful weather with a bright sun, the wedding dress looks even nicer.

As mentioned, with this beautiful bright sun I took the photos of the wedding bouquet and shoes in the balcony. Not to mention the lovely view from that balcony.

and of course, the same family photo with all the best men.

Finally, one of the best moment of every wedding, the confetti! At this moment, the bride and groom are just became Husband and Wife. This means, above all, that all the tension has finally vanished, and what is left is only joy and happiness.

After the ceremony we went to the venue, which was the Hilton Hotel in Southampton. All the flowers were on the same warm pastel colour theme. They hired a huge conference room wich was set with many tables and a dancefloor at the center of the room. In that space there was the wedding cake and, on the bride and groom table.

The flower theme of this wedding was a beautiful pastel warm colour, with an autumn hint. The same was for the groom and the best men flowers.

Wedding photographer London

The last part – The bride and groom portraits.

Finally, when we arrived at the hotel, there was some time for some portraits of the bride and groom. Luckily, the Hilton Hotel has a lovely park and small lake, which was great for wedding photos!

I hope you have enjoyed this wedding story.

Dartmouth House Wedding story | London wedding photographer

Dartmouth House Wedding story | London wedding photographer

The Dartmouth House is a very famous and popular wedding venue. I consider myself a very lucky London wedding photographer, being able to shoot several weddings in this beautiful location.

This wedding story is about one of those days, in the heart of Mayfair, London.

Dartmouth House wedding story – The getting ready

First of all, let’s meet the bride. She got ready at the Chesterfield Mayfair, the next-door Hotel. The Hotel is actually connected to the Dartmouth House from an internal door, so the bride can go in without being seen by the guests.

The bride and the make-up artist.

The bride is a really elegant person and, of course, her wedding dress was a beautiful, elegant and refined dress, with an amazing and exquisitely fabric.

Then, she opted for a pair of elegant flat shoes.

When the bride was almost finished with the getting ready, after wearing the dress, the mother got a bit emotional, she hugged her before let her wear the veil.

Getting ready.

Finally, the bride is ready and really happy!

and of course, there is time for some photos.

Bride portrait

Not to mention when the father of the bride saw her dauther ready to get married.

As I mentioned before, from the Chesterfield Mayfair hotel and the Dartmouth House there is an internal door. Through this door, the bride can go to the ceremony room without see any guest and, of course, the groom. That door takes into this room, where the bride and the bridesmaids are just waiting for the call to enter the ceremony room.

Then, the bride got the call, it’s time to go!

There is so much about the bride entering the ceremony room, from the bridesmaids got emotional to the proudness of the father of the bride. But, above all, the best was the happiness of the bride.

Finally, the confetti!

and then, time to drink and relax!

Wedding photographer London | A story of a destination fine art wedding

Wedding photographer London

Wedding photographer London | This is the second part of a wedding story we spoke about my last blog. The couple tied the knot at the St. Bartholomew’s Church in Barbican and then celebrated at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair.

However, that story was not over. The couple flew to Taiwan a few days after to keep going to the celebration, and I had the privilege to be their photographer for that event as well.

Here is the story

The dining room at the Sheraton Grand Taipei Hotel

After the wedding in London, the couple moved to Taipei for a banquet at the Sheraton Grand Taipei Hotel. This is the dining room at the Hotel.

The big Print of the wedding at the Connaught outside the dining room at the Sheraton
That is to say, It has been an incredible experience, as I had to select and edit the best photos within 2 days, and send them to the couple via email, to let them print the photos and use them for the destination wedding. Basically, they printed the best one 2×1 meter and hanged on the wall of the Sheraton Grand Taipei Hotel, to help the guests find their dining room for the wedding banquet.

The wedding dresses | wedding photographer London
Even though the bride kept her wedding dress from the wedding in London at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, she also had another wedding dress. So, on the left, you can see a  typical Taiwanese wedding dress the bride chose for the banquet.

The bride

Once again, let’s meet the bride getting ready at the Sheraton Hotel.

The bride getting ready
Just between the Sheraton Hotel and the dining room, there are few private rooms where the bride got ready, helped by the hairdresser and some relatives. 

Black and White photo of the bride checking at the mirar
Even though there are not so many black and white photos, here the bride checking herself in the mirror. 

The groom suit
While the bride was getting ready, I also moved to the groom place, who was getting ready at the very same hotel. A photo of his suit.

The groom

Wedding photographer London | A story of a destination fine art wedding | The groom having breakfast
Of course, he was had a bit more time to enjoy some breakfast, as the groom preparation is way quicker the bride getting ready.

The wedding tie
Obviously, I took some photos around, keeping an eye on the wedding details, like the tie. 

The thank you cards with the photo of the London wedding at The Connaught
Finally, some more of the wedding photos I took at the wedding in London, at the Connaught Hotel and at St. Bartholomew’s Church. The bride and the goom printed the best, as I said before, and used as thank you cards as well.

The groom preparation for the wedding
Again, we are back to the groom room. The breakfast is done, time to get ready, and of course, there is some tension for this very important day. 

Wedding photographer London | A story of a destination fine art wedding | Wedding tiara
At the same time, the bride preparation is almost done. We can admire here the wedding tiara she has chosen for the day.

The groom ready for the wedding
Then again, the groom is almost ready as well, just the time for the last check and whish to himself the best of luck for this very important day.

The bride explaining how she wants the tiara and the veil
After having tried the tiara, is time to final adjustment. As we said before, the bride will be wearing two different dresses for this event. Therefore, as a first wedding dress, she chose the one she had worn at the wedding in London.  

Wedding photographer London | The wedding veil
Obviously, with the same beautiful wedding veil.

Black and white bride photo | Wedding photographer London
Finally, it is time to go. I took this photo from the preparation room, and really liked the way the bride is waiting in the corridor. I spoke about how much I do love symmetry, even in wedding photographs, in the previous blog post about the story of their wedding in London the week before.

Wedding photographer London Part 2 | The ceremony

The happy bride looking at the dining room photo
As can be seen, the bride was really happy about the main bog photo outside the Sheraton Hotel dining room. She didn’t see that photo before, as she was busy in the changing room getting ready, meanwhile, the photo was hanged on the wall. 

The wedding dress and the shoes
Besides the wedding dress, the bride kept also the same wedding shoes of the previous ceremony in London. 

A little wedding Guest hold by her father
Here we go, the ceremony is going to begin and the guests are coming. 

The photo of the wedding in London are shown at the banquet reception the week after
So, the photo I took at the wedding in London at the Connaught the week before, were used

First – for the main photo outside the dining room

Second – for the thank-you cards

Third – to be shown during the dinner in a few screens in the dining room.


Finally, after all this preparation, the bride and the groom enter the dining room where all the guests were waiting for them. 


First, they said hello to the guests.

And then, they enjoyed the banquet meal.

Then, as said before, the bride changed her wedding dress with another one, a typical Taiwanese wedding dress.

The grog
And of course, the groom was waiting for the bride. 


Here we are, the second entering the dining room with the new wedding dress.

Even though it was a quite formal ceremony, the kids found time and space to play as well. 

Wedding photographer London | Part 3 The Sea

This is the last and most beautiful part of the wedding, having a walk with the bride and the groom by the sea outside Taipei.

I hope you enjoyed this wedding story, who began in London, at the Connaught, and finished by the sea in Taipei. 

Wedding photographer London | A Fine art wedding story at the Connaught Hotel and St. Bartholomew Church

Wedding photographer London – As a photographer, it has been a great experience and deep pleasure to take the photos of this fine art wedding in the heart of Mayfair, London.  The getting ready and the wedding reception was at the  Connaught Hotel and the ceremony at St. Bartholomew Church.

In addition, the couple had a second ceremony the week after in Taiwan, to celebrate their great step with the bride’s relatives as well. This has been incredible as I had to edit the few best photos the day after and send them over to the bride and groom, now actually the husband and wife.

Having sent the best photos by the next Monday, I gave the change to the bride and groom to print them and use for the celebration in Taiwan, as you will see in the next wedding blog

Then, on the next Thursday, I flew to Taiwan to attend the ceremony in Taipei. It was a traditional Taiwanese wedding banquet, very formal and really interesting. I would say a unique experience.

But for now, let’s enjoy this London wedding story

After that, straight away at the Connaught Hotel in Mayfair, London. I just went to the bride room, where there were her sister and her niece as well. The room was messy, of course, a lot of things to do in so little time and with so much pressure and excitement.

Besides, the bride niece was so adorable, she played a lot on the big bed whereas her mum and auntie were getting ready.

I couldn’t help to take many photos of her.

Symmetry is beautiful, also in a wedding photo. The Bride and the groom perfectly standing in front of the altar, with the priest perfectly balanced in the middle. The light was great as well, which helped very much to compose this image.
