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
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.
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.
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.
Once again, let’s meet the bride getting ready at the Sheraton Hotel.
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.
Even though there are not so many black and white photos, here the bride checking herself in the mirror.
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.
Of course, he was had a bit more time to enjoy some breakfast, as the groom preparation is way quicker the bride getting ready.
Obviously, I took some photos around, keeping an eye on the wedding details, like the tie.
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.
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.
At the same time, the bride preparation is almost done. We can admire here the wedding tiara she has chosen for the day.
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.
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.
Obviously, with the same beautiful wedding veil.
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
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.
Besides the wedding dress, the bride kept also the same wedding shoes of the previous ceremony in London.
Here we go, the ceremony is going to begin and the guests are coming.
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.
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.
Of course, it’s time for some black and white photo of the couple by this beautiful panorama.
And some in colour as well…
This beautiful day is going to the end.
Just the time to find a place to relax…
I hope you enjoyed this wedding story, who began in London, at the Connaught, and finished by the sea in Taipei.
