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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
