Skinners Hall London Wedding Photography for Kristina & Stefan

Skinners Hall London Wedding Photography for Kristina & Stefan

David and I were so looking forward to Kristina and Stefan’s Wedding at the wonderful Skinners Hall, London.  We had visited the wonderful Skinners’ Hall a few months previous but as always on the day of the Wedding it was nice to be there well ahead of the expected.

Skinners Hall London Wedding Photographer It was a warm but overcast day and we had our fingers crossed it would remain, the outside being an important part of the plans as well as the inside. Arriving at Skinners’ Hall we were warmly welcomed by the staff and then were left to go about our job. Going into the Library upstairs we met with Stefan who was  enjoying the calmness of the day!  After a few words with him we then went off to find Kristina. Kristina was with her Mother having her hair and make up done downstairs in one of the rooms. After capturing a few pictures we left them to it for a little while whilst we went off to see how other things were progressing. Stefan’s Parents had arrived so he had left the Library to greet them and sort out a few arrangements. This worked really well as we could then take pictures of Kristina’s Wedding Dress and Accessories as well as Stefan’s attire which were in the Library.  Moving between the two rooms worked well for us and it wasn’t long before Kristina’s preparations were complete and she went to get dressed.Skinners'Hall London Wedding Photographer Stefan was finishing his preparations elsewhere, then had some pictures taken. Once Kristina was ready and just before other members of Kristina’s family joined her we took a few pictures. The wonderful setting of the Library worked well for all these pictures.

Kristina and Stefan wanted to have an informal relaxed Wedding and chose to see each other before the Wedding and walked down the stairs and into the Outer Hall together for the Ceremony.  Afterwards the Drinks Reception was held outside. The Roof Garden provided a beautiful area for socialising as well as for some requested family pictures and of course plenty of informal pictures. Skinners Hall London Wedding PhotographsWe took Kristina and Stefan for a few minutes around the property for a few pictures of them together. We were spoilt for choice with so many areas around the property but also careful not to take too much time. Getting them back to their Guests with minimal time away was important to the couple. The magnificent Banqueting Hall was where the Wedding Breakfast was going to take place. When it was time the guests made their way into the Hall. Before the meal Stefan made a Speech which was warmly received. After the meal took  Kristina and Stefan outside for a few evening pictures. The Courtyard was perfect for these.Skinners Hall London Wedding PhotographyReturning, Kristina and Stefan cut their Wedding Cake and then took to the dance floor for their First Dance. Just before we finished our coverage we took a couple of night pictures. Wedding Photos Skinners Hall LondonWhat a fantastic day! Kristina and Stefan, you are a nice couple, you had such a memorable day, thank you for letting us be a part of it. It was so lovely to see Laura and Jonathan(Stefan’s Brother) again, who were married at Braxted Park, Essex, in 2013 and used us as their Wedding Photographers. It was nice to meet Laura & Jonathan’s daughter Alisa who was a wonderful Flowergirl! Thank you for the recommendation. Finally, a massive ‘thank you’ to everyone at Skinners’ Hall, especially Indre, who is the Co-ordinator, it was nice to meet you again and a pleasure to work with you. Party Ingredients, the meal was amazing, thank you!


Wedding Photography – Stephanie & Mario – The Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington

We were delighted to be asked to photograph the Wedding of Stephanie and Mario particularly as the father of Marios is our friend and fellow Professional Photographer Panikos.  Starting our day with David leaving me at Marios’ house, he left to go to to Steph’s house. From a quiet beginning at Marios’ house, relatives then arrived every few minutes before the greek custom of dressing the Groom.  With live Greek music being played and Marios’ relatives singing,  it made for some emotional images.,  Meanwhile, at Steph’s house, David was busily taking photographs of bridal preparations, details and Steph’s relatives, musicians, who were congregating.   The Wedding Ceremony was held at Battersea Kingdom Hall before everybody then travelled to The Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington for the Reception. As Steph and Mario’s Wedding was held on the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Weekend, a spur of the moment decision was made to stop on Wandsworth Bridge with Steph and Mario and take a couple of photographs as rain was in the air.  Fantastic!  A wonderful opportunity to photograph Steph and Mario on the bridge with the flotilla of boats passing by underneath! wedding-photographer-london-wandsworth bridge Arriving at The Royal Garden Hotel, Kensington it was not long before the rain began to fall, but with the cover of the Hotel we managed to get some photographs of the couple as well.  Formal requested group pictures were taken on the stairs in the Hotel as well in various other parts of the the royal garden hotel-kensington Following a lovely Wedding Breakfast, dancing started and it was a pleasure to watch as well as photograph everybody having a wonderful time. wedding-photographer-london-the royal garden hotel-kensington

Wedding Photography for Victoria & Alan at The Ritz Hotel, London

Wow!  What a day!  Our first Wedding at The Ritz Hotel, London!  After deciding to let the train take the strain to London, we arrived at The Ritz earlier than intended.  Although we had previously visited The Ritz Hotel, it was another opportunity to familarise ourselves with our surroundings.  Whilst I stayed with Victoria and the girls photographing final preparations, David joined Alan and the men for theirs.  After a lovely Civil Ceremony we quickly took the everybody shot on the stairway before the Guests moved off for the drinks Reception.  Following a few family group shots taken within The Ritz, we took Victoria and Alan into Green Park for their pictures.  What a lovely time we had in the warm sunshine and we produced some really nice images.  After the Wedding Breakfast we took the opportunity to finish our photography by taking pictures at night outside The Ritz Hotel.  A truly exceptional day!
